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 resurgence 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 allows you to you keep things simple or go more extravagant—variations range from minimal solitaires in classic settings to ornate, vintage-inspired styles to unique takes with gemstones. Then, there are entirely unconventional settings like clusters, double-band rings, and off-kilter stones—all of which are perfect for those inclined to forego tradition. For a little more embellishment, you can choose a pear-shaped engagement ring with accent stones or try a coordinating nesting band which will create the illusion of a bigger ring.

Set in yellow, white, or rose gold, there's no doubt the teardrop shape makes an impact—even the most modest pears standout. If you prefer a bit more drama, however, go for the pavé halo or double-shank band.

Bonus tip: A pear shape can feel easily customizable as it can be worn with the diamond facing up, down, east-west, or slightly off-kilter; lady's choice! When opting for an ultra-modern version, minimal settings really help a dazzling pear-cut diamond shine.
