Pear Cut Diamonds


Sophisticated Pear Cut Diamonds


The pear cut diamond is renowned for its modified brilliant-cut and unique design. A pear cut diamond is identified by its round shape with a tapered point at one end. The pear shape pushed the boundaries of cut design when it was created and is now an iconic symbol of the diamond industry.

Basic Pear Cut Diamond Anatomy

A classic pear cut diamond combines the characteristics of a round, marquise shape with a pointed end. It is considered a brilliant-cut which means it has 58 facets.

Symmetry is an important aspect of ideal pear cut diamonds. Valuable pear cut diamonds should have an Excellent or Very Good symmetry grading to uphold its unique shape. However, pear-shaped diamonds are available in a variety of slide to wide cuts to suit a wearer’s finger.

Symmetrical pear cut diamonds should have the point line up to the apex of the rounded end. The curves of the shoulders and wings need to be the same and without straight edges. Classic pear shape diamonds have an L/W ratio of 1.40-1.70.

Basic anatomy of a diamond consists of Table, Depth, Girdle, Culet and L/W Ratio. Here are the following approximate dimensions of a pear cut diamond:

Table %

The percentage of the diamond that the table takes up.



Depth %

The depth percentage of the lower part of the diamond.




The ideal thickness of the diamond’s girdle.


Thin to Slightly Thick


Whether or not a cutlet cuts into the bottom is ideal.



L/W Ratio

The ration of the diamond’s length and width.



The elegant style of pear cut diamonds makes it suitable for a variety of ring, bracelet, pendant and earring settings. Each jewellery setting style has an ideal pear cut symmetry grading. For instance, a narrow pear diamond looks great in dangle earrings, while solitaire rings suit a wider shaped pear cut.

The History Of Pear Cut Diamonds

Pear cut diamonds have revelled in the industry as a fancy premium cut. Created by Lodewyk van Bercken used the first polishing tool to create the teardrop-shaped diamond in the late 1400’s. His original cut had a squarer shape and had undergone constant tweaking to become the renowned pear shape that it is today.
