Frequently Asked Questions 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 in 2023, read on for our expert advice.

What does a pear-shaped engagement ring mean?

"As a more unique shape, traditionally, the pear-shaped engagement ring symbolizes originality," says Sandrine de Laage, creative director of Oscar Massin. Also referred to as teardrop engagement rings, pear engagement rings have one rounded end and one pointed end. Essentially, they combine aspects of the round and marquise cut into one distinguished style.

How do you wear a pear-shaped engagement ring?

There aren't any rules about the "right" way to wear this style, but "the most common way to wear a pear-shaped engagement ring is with the rounded bottom closer to your hand and the point pointing outwards," explains de Laage, adding that she loves pairing a pear-shaped ring with a delicate setting that allows the diamond "to truly shine."

Are pear-shaped engagement rings popular?

Pear-shaped engagement rings have become a popular and trendy cut in recent years—and celebrities have taken note. Stars like Ariana Grande, Cardi B and Margot Robbie have all been proposed to with this beautiful style. Also, a pear diamond solitaire makes the perfect stand-alone if you're not into side accents or extra details.

Whether you want your teardrop diamond set on a sleek gold band, or paired with another stone for a trendy toi et moi style, the design of your pear engagement is completely yours. "At the end of the day, the diamond shape that you and/or your partner choose should be a reflection of your personal style," adds de Laage.
