We love heirloom rings, and even more so, love hearing the anecdotes that go along with them. Today’s ring is a pear shaped yellow diamond that has been passed down from mother to daughter. Its vintage feel and unique setting is definitely eye catching.
Also called a teardrop, pear shaped diamonds are a combination of round or oval and marquis cut – with one side of the stone rounded, and the other tapered. Brilliant cut pears usually have 58 facets, and sparkle nearly as much as the more common round diamond. Some even say that pear shaped diamonds enhance the length of the finger.
