Propose with the perfect pear diamond ring
The ‘cut’ of a diamond refers to the alignment of angles (facets), proportion and dimensions of a diamond.
These elements determine the sparkle and brilliance of a diamond. Diamonds are graded based on their cut as either; excellent, very good, fair and poor. Pear diamonds when cut perfectly showcase symmetry, radiating light from tip to teardrop with extraordinary brilliance.
All diamonds in the Simon Curwood Diamond Collection are guaranteed to be non-recirculated, ethically mined diamonds. All SC Diamonds are hand selected by our international diamond buyer, undergo rigorous quality control and are each certified by the same independent diamond agency, ensuring consistency and brilliance with each SC Diamond.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does pear cut diamond mean?
The pear cut diamond is another ‘modified’ brilliant cut which combines the shape of the round or oval cut (rounded top) and the marquise shape (tapered point).
How many facets in a pear cut diamond?
As with any modified brilliant diamond, the pear cut diamond has 58 facets.
Which way do you wear a pear shaped diamond?
There is no right or wrong way to wear a pear shaped diamond. Some people choose to wear it so the point of the diamond faces towards the hand – this may protect it from catching on clothing or objects. Other people prefer it to look like a teardrop – it can also make the finger appear slimmer/elongated when worn with the point of the diamond facing the fingertips. Again, it’s completely up to personal choice which way you wear your pear shaped diamond ring.
Are pear cut diamonds more expensive?
Pear cut diamonds are generally less expensive when compared with a round or princess cut diamond in the same carat weight. More of the rough stone is used in making the pear shape, so there is less wastage. Pear shaped diamonds also have more noticeable surface area than other fancy cut diamond shapes, which allows you to save money by purchasing a lower-carat diamond without forfeiting the size. If you have a particular budget in mind for the diamond of your dreams, come in-store and check with our team to find the best options available.
Do pear diamonds look bigger?
Because of their elongated shape, pear cuts look larger than a round diamond. But it's not just appearance, they're actually 8% larger on their top surface! This means that even a small diamond will make a big impact.
