Heck, a lot of brides even wonder whether they will enjoy having a pear shaped ring — a style that's considered somewhat contemporary when compared to other ring styles — in the long-run. Luckily, we're here to help educate you on everything you need to know about pear shaped engagement rings. For a complete rundown of what a pear shaped ring is, how to wear one, and whether they're expected to be popular this year, keep on reading. 

And oh! We even included 37 stunning rings that you can shop right this instant. 

What does a pear shaped engagement ring mean?

Pear engagement rings earned their name as a result of their distinguished shape. Also sometimes called "teardrop engagement rings," pear engagement rings have one rounded end and one pointed. Essentially, the shape of a teardrop ring encompasses both the appearance of round and marquise cuts into one style.

Symbolistically, the teardrop shape is said to represent tears of joy — which is pretty romantic, if you ask us.

Are pear shaped engagement rings popular?

In 2019, uniquely shaped engagement rings, including pear shaped ones, were all the rage. 

Last year, many newly engaged celebs, including Ariana Grande, Cardi B and Margot Robbie, all went with pear-shaped engagement rings.

While jewel experts think teardrop rings may become less common in 2020, the trend's slight decline may end up being a good thing for brides who want a pear shaped engagement ring — but don't want their ring to look like everyone else's.

Which way do you wear a pear shaped ring?

There aren't any rules about the 'right' way to wear your pear shaped engagement ring. But engaged gals typically choose to wear it with the tip of the pear diamond pointed away from you  — or toward your fingertips.

If you choose to wear it this way, your ring should look like a falling teardrop when you raise your hand to view the diamond, according to Brilliant Earth, a San Francisco-based jeweler.

What kind of wedding band goes with a pear shaped engagement ring?

Should you go with a pear-shaped engagement ring, you'll want to pay extra attention to which type of wedding band you decide upon — especially given this style of ring's irregular shape.

With pear-shaped rings, it's normal to expect some space between the ring and the band. For that reason, a lot of jewelers will recommend going with a simpler style so as to allow your teardrop ring to really shine.

Otherwise, you can look for a jeweler that offers a matching band to go along with your engagement ring so that your ring and wedding band will line up perfectly.
