The pear cut shaped diamond. When I look at it what do I see?? Elegance, beauty & a piece of "frosting" that is incredibly unique. A pear cut diamond isn't for everyone. It is for those who can appreciate the things in life that are a little bit different.
This is my grandmother's ring. The ring that my grandfather passed down to me when I got married. Last May, right before Joey & I's second wedding anniversary, Joey took me to look at rings for the big day. And what shape was I drawn to? The pear. I fell in love with it right away. It's not a shape that you see on too many people. And that's a positive thing. Who wants to see their ring on everyone else? So when Brilliant Earth contacted me about doing this post and picking out my favorite diamond shape, I didn't really have to think about it too much. I already knew what shape I was going to pick.
Brilliant Earth is an engagement ring website that has some of the most beautiful rings I have ever seen!! Ah, my eyes!! Sparkle, sparkle, sparkle!! If I was a bride-to-be or a man in search for the perfect ring for his perfect lady, I'd have a hard time picking which one I liked best!! The company is extremely well-rounded and has a big heart. Their mission is "to transform the jewelry industry by demonstrating transparency, responsibility, and compassion." And how are they different? First, they have a beyond conflict free guarantee, second, they use recycled precious metals, and third, they give back 5% of their profits.
Here is my favorite pear cut shaped diamond from Brilliant Earth, along with a style board that I put together:
A link to all of the women's wedding rings here and their engagment rings here. You can also check out their antique rings, custom made rings, their top 20 rings and men's wedding rings. There are too many choices!! Good luck picking just one!!
Do you like the pear shape as well?? When you look at the pear shaped diamond, what do you see?? Or what do you think of? I instantly start singing, "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend." I also think of Vivienne Leigh. The first word that comes to mind is "vintage" ...closely followed by "unique." And, I of course always think of the fruit. I know that's silly, but it's true. One last thing, I picture a bride who is styled in a short dress, with a birdcage veil and eating pastel colored macaroons.
