A Few Nuggets about Pear Cut Diamonds Elegance and brilliance are attributes for which the pear cut diamonds have come to be known. This beautiful piece is also known as the 'teardrop diamond' due to its shape which bears striking similarity to the human tear. It remains one of those diamonds that has caught the eyes for quite a long time and continued to attract gazes. It owes a lot of its allure to the fact that it is not restricted in use to one type of jewelry but different types including rings and pendants.
Pear cut diamonds are actually a fusion of the round brilliant cut diamonds and the marquise shaped diamonds; the latter possessing an oval shape that come to a point at the top and bottom. This combination therefore creates the pear cut which has a rounded end on one side while having a pointed end at the other. It is dazzling in its brilliance and sparkle and extremely elegant. It also has the ability to make a rather simple earring or pendant look very sophisticated. The uniqueness of a pear cut is attributable to many reasons:
I. Versatility: Pear cut diamonds are quite versatile and have been found in use as center stones as well as beautiful diamond accents. ii. Uncommon: This is not a diamond cut that is found around with regularity. It gives the wearer that confidence that she might be the only person around putting one on.
If you are looking to buy any of the rare pear cut diamonds, you need to look out for the quality of the stone and finishing as well as its grade. As mentioned earlier, it is a combination of two other diamond cuts therefore bears similar characteristics. Therefore the symmetry ought to be even and this means that by looking at the diamond from above, you ought to see an even rounded edge. The point of the teardrop ought to fall precisely in the middle of the two rounded edges.
The 'bow-tie effect' which is common in many diamond cuts can also be seen in the pear cut diamonds and if you can see it visually, then you ought not to buy it. Take note that neither the diamond certificate nor dimensions disclose the existence of the 'bow-tie effect'.
