A Complete Guide to Pear Shaped Solitaire Jewellery
Usually, when we think of a solitaire, we are struck with the image of a brilliant round cut dazzling stone, lights striking off its many facets, blindingly radiant. Round-cut solitaires are the classic and the timeless, a go-to for any solitaire-seeker. But if you like looking at life a little differently, then you might find your calling in unusually shaped solitaire.
Pear cut solitaires are also known as pear-shaped, tear-shaped raindrop-shaped, or teardrop, and are an unusually shaped solitaire that has recently garnered a generous fan-following. Not that it is a recent invention though; this shape has been around since the 1400s. Its tear-shaped body is a perfect blend of the round stone cut and the marquis stone cut. Due to its elongated and tapering shape, more surface area is exposed for light to play with. That means more shine and more glam.
As we try to incorporate both global and local trends while creating our collections, we could not help but introduce a range of contemporary and trendy pear-shaped jewellery designs in our latest launch - the Lucent Collection. Let us take you through each piece here, sprinkled with factual titbits about this unusually shaped solitaire. Our aim is definitely to make you fall in love with it, and not just the appearance!
But before we jump into our collection, let's talk about the vintage vibe of this pear-shaped solitaire jewellery. This unusual solitaire shape hogged headlines way back in 1969 when Richard Burton gave a whopping 69-carat pear-shaped solitaire diamond engagement ring to his to-be wife, the famous Hollywood actress, Elizabeth Taylor. Close to today, stars like Victoria Beckham and Scarlett Johansson are also from team pear-shaped engagement ring tribe. Due to its pointy end, if facing upwards, the pear-shaped solitaire gives a crown-like effect that evokes the romance of the ravishing opulence of the imperial era.
Take, for instance, our Teardrop Halo Solitaire Studs that center on a voluptuous pear-shaped solitaire. Pear-shaped stones also work exceptionally well with accent solitaires, and this piece here is an accurate example. The halo studded with tiny multiple round-cut cubic zirconias makes it sensationally striking.
Sometimes, for a vintage effect, we have also used pear-shaped solitaire as an accent. Take a look at this luxurious pair of Victorian Luxor Ear Studs. The pear-cut cubic zirconia adds a royal touch to break the monotony of the tapered zirconia.
But who wears pear-shaped solitaire jewellery? The symbolism of this unusually shaped solitaire is as deep as it gets. It is believed that unconventional souls opt for this unusual silhouette of solitaire. It denotes emancipation, a unique style, and empowerment. Some culture believes it symbolizes abundance and longevity.
This kind of unusually shaped solitaire has a lot of visual perks. While its rounded edge gives a delicate feminine aura to the wearer, its pointy end creates a visual elongation effect. If, you want to make your fingers look long and slim, plonk a pear-shaped diamond solitaire.
Pair the Pear
Pear-shaped solitaire offers a lot of scopes to play with its placement. You can lay it on its sides as we did with our Interlinked Pear Tennis Bracelet. Our Inverted Teardrop Eternity Ring from the Lucent Collection has alternating inverted pear-shaped zirconias. Our Tilted Teardrop Eternity Ring from the same range has them in slight angles to create a unique visual effect.
