Resembling a rain drop, a pear shaped diamond can technically be considered a combination of a round and marquise diamond. It is rounded on one end and pointed on the other.

Like the marquise and oval cuts, a pear shaped diamond can be slim or wide. The ideal length to width ratio of a classic pear shaped diamond is 1.4 to 1.7 depending on the preference of the consumer. This shape also has the added benefit of making the wearers fingers appear longer and slimmer.

Ideally, this shape should possess excellent or very good symmetry for optimal light performance. The pear shape should also be set with a prong at the point to protect it from incurring any damage.

The Bow-Tie Effect

Pear shaped diamonds also possess some degree of bow‐tie effect, varying from near invisible to severe. This effect cannot be ascertained just by reviewing a diamonds certificate or dimensions‐ only a visual inspection can determine the severity of a bow‐tie.
