This is the second in our 4 part series that takes a look and the emerging trends in diamond cuts for engagement rings Toronto.
If you are looking for a ring that has more unique characteristics and is something different from what you typically see, then the pear shaped engagement ring is a great option to consider.
Also commonly referred to as a teardrop diamond, the diamond is a combination of a marquise cut and round cut with a tapered point on one end and its perfect for the women that loves to stand out in a crowd. They say women that wear pear shaped diamonds are bold and adventurous.
When designing pear shaped engagement rings, keep in mind that the diamond can be worn facing either direction. This allows you to create a different look depending on your custom ring design ideas. Pear shaped diamonds also come in a number of cut styles – you can choose from a slim or wide diamond cut.
One of the main benefits of the pear shape is that it creates a slimming effect, making your fingers appear longer.
