Glistening bright like an angelic tear, the unique pear shaped diamond is one of the highly admired fancy diamond shape that was invented in the year 1458. Endowed with remarkable brilliance, the pear cut diamond can also be regarded as a hybrid cut created by the amalgamation of the round diamond cut and the marquise diamond cut thus forming a roundish curve at one end and a pointed narrow corner at the other end. Due to the tapered corner, the pear diamond like other fancy diamond shapes, also appears larger in the slender fingers as compared to the geometrical diamond shapes that are mostly prevalent.
To acquire perfection in the cut of the pear shaped diamond, there are some conventions that are to be followed. Firstly, the pointed end of the loose pear cut diamond must be in the straight line with the apex point on the other rounded corner. Secondly, the two halves of the pear loose diamond must be symmetrically curved to produce two completely identical wings. Then only the complete beauty of the pear shaped diamond will truly unfold. As can be witnessed in other fancy diamond cuts, the brilliance and fire of pear cut diamonds is also remarkable with the presence of bow-tie effect in the diamond. The triangular cut facets numbering up to 58 gives a prism like effect creating maximum reflection to present aura of shimmering light.
The length to width ratio of the pear shaped diamond is generally in the varying range from 1.40 -1.70 revealing choices from plump pear shaped diamond to narrow pear shaped diamond to select from. The perfect setting for a genuine pear shaped diamond is prong setting, so that the pointed corner gets protection against chipping or any other damage. Also subtle flaws on the outer surface can be masked using prong setting.

Among all these cuts, excellent cut pear diamonds give the maximized sparkle and as it descends the quality of cut also degrades and the price also varies accordingly. The top quality diamond is worth many times more than that of an inferior quality.
The price range of diamond fluctuates based on the 4C’s of diamonds i.e; the cut, color, clarity and carat of the diamonds. The color range of diamonds start from D, E, F till Z. D is considered to be colorless and hence the best quality diamond with high prices and as we descend towards Z, the price decreases and the diamond reflects slight yellowish or brownish tint. In case of clarity, it is measured as FL, IF, VVS1, VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, SI2, I1, I2 and I3. FL indicating flawless diamonds are free of any inclusions or blemishes, so can be regarded as the supreme quality diamonds and also pretty expensive quality diamonds. But as we descend towards I3, the diamond becomes internally included that may be visible to the naked eyes thus depleting the worth of the natural diamonds. Similarly, the cut of the pear shaped diamonds detected as the Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair and Poor also influences the brilliance of the diamond. The excellent cut diamonds very beautifully reflect the light causing the full seven rayed spectrum of light that we observe as intense fire and brilliance. So, it can be concluded as the excellent cut is the superior one and such a diamond has high worth, on the other hand, a poor cut diamond is not appreciated much for its lack of shimmer and blaze.
