Thinking about an engagement ring? Or restyling the one you have? Here are some quick and interesting facts about Pear shape diamonds.
The Pear-shaped diamond takes it cue from both the Round brilliant and the Marquise cuts. It’s origins trace back to the 1400s, over 600 plus years ago, to a Flemish diamond cutter named Lodewyk (Louis) van Berquem.
Pear shapes and other fancy shapes are among the diamond shapes that show color the strongest. Diamond color is the hue of a diamond based on the GIA diamond color scale, which grades the diamond’s color on a spectrum of D (colorless) to Z (light yellow hue). The absence of color determines a diamond’s grade and value, as well as has a significant impact on its appearance.
The pear shape’s uniqueness is an excellent option for a classic but still a bit unconventional ring design. Want to learn more about Pear-shapes check out the GIA blog for tips on how to buy: https://4cs.gia.edu/en-us/blog/pear-shaped-diamond-tips-picking-perfect-one/
