Pear-shaped engagement rings are having a serious moment. We've rounded up our favorites in every style to fit even the most eclectic bride.
Don't call it a comeback. We're seriously loving pear-shaped engagement rings right now, and we're not the only ones. Carrie Bradshaw may not have loved her pear-shaped diamond ("with a gold band"), but that was so 2002! Pear-shaped rings are having a resurgance and for good reason — they're timeless, chic, and really stand out.
We all know the cut, pointy on top, rounded at the bottom, otherwise referred to as a "teardrop." No matter its size, a pear-shaped diamond always seems to sparkle just a little bit more than its counterparts.
Opting for a teardrop on your ring finger lets you keep things simple (yet a little extravagant). A pear-shaped solitaire is classic yet subtly sexy. Set in yellow, white, or rose gold, there's no doubt the teardrop shape makes an impact. Even for those who crave something more modest, the unique shape makes it an immediate standout. Or if you're looking to blind them with the ice on your finger, go full on and wrap it in a pavé halo for ultimate drama!
Bonus tip: the pear shape makes your ring extra versatile, since it can be worn with the diamond facing up or down, lady's choice. Or wear them sideways, or three at once!
