The History of the Pear Shaped Stone
The first pear shaped diamond was believed to have been
created in 1458, by Belgian polisher Lodewyk van Berquem, the same brilliant
mind behind both the 137-carat Florentine Diamond and what’s known as the
scaif, or diamond-polishing wheel. This critical invention forever changed the
ways in which diamonds were designed by enabling jewelers to polish all facets
of the stone in order to optimize light reflection. These diamonds rose in
popularity throughout the Renaissance Period, and were commonly found in both
jewelry and ornaments of that era.
How to Wear the Pear Cut Ring
Many wearers of pear shaped engagement rings wonder what
direction the point is supposed to face. The truth is, there’s no “right” way
to wear this ring. Some people prefer that the diamond’s point faces the
fingernail, which is said to have a slimming effect on the fingers, while
others prefer that the point faces the wrist. “To point or not to point” is at
the sole discretion of the wearer, and regardless of what direction it points, this
glittering ring is sure to be a head-turner.
It’s been said time and time again that a diamond will be forever, and exploring our extensive selection is a great first step in
starting a promising future. Next to finding the perfect woman, finding a beautiful,
affordable pear shaped sparkler is a piece of cake.
