One of the most exciting aspects of the engagement process is deciding what type of ring you’ll have and being able to pick the right shape is super important as it’s the longest style commitment you’ll ever make—you know, ’till death do us part, and all.
Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw may not have liked her pear shaped diamond “with a gold band,” but that was so 2003 and fifteen years later we’ve seen these pear shaped diamond engagement rings come back with a vengeance.
Below we name the top 3 qualities of women embracing this iconic cut!
1. You want to stand out from the crowd
The pear-shaped diamond engagement ring is quite rare and offers a fun and chic alternative to the common engagement ring shapes. This shape suits women who are looking for a cut that will make them stand out from the crowd and represents a woman who wants to be an individual!
Plus, no matter the size of the pear shaped diamond, they always seem to sparkle just that bit more than other diamond cuts and can appear larger than other shapes at the same carat size. In other words, people will need to cover their eyes around you.
Even Australia’s own Margot Robbie, who is known to be fiercely independent herself, rocks a sparkling pear-shaped diamond ring on a pavé band, which she showed the world in an Instagram post by literally giving us the finger.
2. You want to maintain your unique, individual style
Increasingly, stylish brides are choosing the pear-shaped engagement ring in order to make a statement. Think style icons like Victoria Beckham and Princess Charlene of Monaco.
The pear shaped diamond is so unique that it is literally made up of two different cuts. Mixing the best of the round brilliant cut and the marquise, the pear-shape is for women who move to the beat of their own drum and don’t want the same ring as everyone else.
Creating a striking yet subtle change from every other round-shaped diamond, the pear creates a completely individual look and unique appearance.
3. You still value traditional romance
Although the pear shaped engagement ring may be unique and shows a woman who wants to be an individual, the woman who wears this shape has a soft spot for traditional romance. But what women doesn’t love all that mushy stuff, right?
Even though the wearer of the pear shaped engagement ring may want to make a statement with the shape, they still choose to stay as close as possible to the traditional diamond cuts. The pears shape allows them to give into the air of the romances and traditions of past eras, but still wear a shape she knows can offer an individual twist and modern take.
