The pear cut diamonds were for the very first time produced in the 15th century by Lodewyk van Berquem an inventive jeweller who was known as the first ever individual to incorporate diamond shapes in jewelry. The pear cut diamonds have a distinctive resemblance to the shape of a tear drop. In fact, over the years, this specific diamond cut has sometimes been referred to as the teardrop cut. Fundamentally, these are a blend of the marquise diamond shape and the rounded diamond shape and apart from that; there is a tapered point at one end. The pear cut diamonds or if you wish the pear drop cut diamonds are cut starting from wider to slimmer cuts just like the marquise and the oval cuts.
Many a times, the pear cut diamonds are put on with the tapered end facing in the direction of the arm of the individual who is wearing the diamond. This is done since this type of cut has an added merit as it tends to bring out the look of a lengthier and leaner finger to the person who puts on the piece.
The pear cut diamonds that we have at our store are set with a sturdy prong at the pointy end since this end is the one that is most likely to be open to destruction for instance chipping and formation of extra planes. This is due to the fact that this edge was originally nearest to the rough or in other words, the naturally occurring stone’s exterior section. Nonetheless, these particular imperfections are made practically invisible to the naked eye as a result of using the prong.
