Pear-shaped diamonds have reappeared as the go-to diamond in 2022 engagements. With celebrities such as Adele and Megan Fox propelling their comeback, these teardrop beauties combine the elegance of round and marquis cuts to create a shape and shine that is utter brilliance.

Their delicate style tends to slim and elongate the fingers and is the perfect stone for women who have an ultra-feminine or even vintage style. They work well with unconventional ring styles, such as colorful gemstones, double-banded rings, and asymmetrical settings.

Because of their shape, pear-shaped diamonds may appear larger, but one thing to consider is that they are also a little more fragile than the strong princess or round cut. The pointy tip can make them more vulnerable to damage such as chipping, so we suggest choosing a bezel setting around the stone to provide a barrier of protection.

Here at Diamond Castle Jewelers, we can easily customize your ring so that the diamond is facing up or down (north-south) or horizontal (east-west). We are Metro Detroit’s home of the diamond engagement ring, and we offer the area’s most comprehensive selection of loose GIA Certified diamonds. Visit us at our Novi, MI showroom, and soon, at our downtown Plymouth, MI showroom.
