If you are looking for an engagement ring with a difference then ditch the traditional solitaire stones and princess cut diamonds – pear shaped engagement rings offer something totally unique that is still beautifully timeless.

A pear shaped engagement ring is exactly as it sounds – the diamond or gemstone is cut into a pear shape, giving you the beautiful sparkle you get from a round cut diamond but leading to a point. Pear shaped diamonds work beautifully as a standalone stone and look equally as stunning surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds.
