Close your eyes and imagine that you've found the love of your life. This person gives you warm, fuzzy feelings. And you want nothing more than to pop the question.
But, there is one problem. When you go to the engagement ring store, your mind reels with confusion.
How are there so many different options for engagement rings? What's the difference between them? Which one should you choose?
This is a common scenario for anyone interested in purchasing an engagement ring. With so many choices on the market, it can be difficult to select the perfect ring for your partner.
Luckily, we have put together this complete guide to pear engagement rings. Below, you will gather all the information that you need to choose a ring as perfect as your partner.
What Are Pear Engagement Rings?
The first step to buying an engagement ring is learning about precious stones. Most rings come with something that glitters, whether that be a black diamond, a sapphire, moissanite, or even a classic, white diamond.
Regardless of which stone you choose, that stone must be cut to fit the ring. A pear-cut stone is shaped just like its namesake. The stone has a full, round bottom and a smaller, sharper top.
Pear engagement rings are those that bear a pear-cut stone. Some people believe that the stone's shape resembles tears of joy. Thus, the pear-cut symbolizes intense and passionate love.
These rings are not exactly traditional. Consequently, they are perfect for someone who is modern, independent, and unique.
If your partner is not afraid to break the mold, you may consider buying them a ring with a pear-cute stone.
Why Consider Buying A Pear Ring?
Pear-cut rings aren't just a cool, nontraditional statement piece. They are also quite elegant.
Due to their elongated shape, pear-cut rings are very flattering. Their very specific cut can make one's fingers seem slimmer. They can also make the wearer's hands seem more slender. The result is a very sophisticated look.
The best part is that pear-cut stones tend to look larger than they are. Their shape is comprised of more facets than princess-cut stones. As a result, they exude much more sparkle and create the impression of increased size.
Ultimately, this means that you won't have to spend as much on a pear-cut stone. Instead of sinking a lot of cash into a larger carat size, you can invest in a smaller pear-shaped stone.
The smaller pear stone will still have the sparkle of a larger alternative. But, it won't come with the hefty price tag of a more classic cut.
Which Way Should You Wear A Pear Ring?
It's all about personal preference. Some people like to wear their pear rings with the point facing the tips of their fingers. Others prefer to wear them with the point facing their wrists.
However, there are some benefits to wearing the ring with the point facing one's fingertips.
For one thing, this style holds more symbolism. If the wearer looks at their hand and sees a stone reminiscent of a teardrop, they can recall that the ring represents tears of joy.
Some wearers also find that this style is more flattering. The upwards-facing stone point is what creates the optical illusion of slender fingers. Thus this style is ideal for those who want their hands to look more elegant.

Pear-Cut Blue Sapphire Engagement Ring
Before the 1940s, diamonds weren't popular. As a result, most vintage wedding rings are made with other rare stones. Back in the day, emeralds, rubies, and sapphires were all popular engagement ring choices.
If your partner loves vintage items, you may want to consider a blue sapphire engagement ring. The blue gem isn't just dreamy. It also provides that retro look that will complement your lover's personality.
This gorgeous engagement ring is made of sterling silver and plated with white gold. Seated in the center is a Sona Simulated blue sapphire. The stone measures an impressive 3.0 carats.
The band itself is dotted with gorgeous white stones. This leaves the viewer with the vision of a large sapphire nestled in a bed of diamonds.
In terms of quality, the ring uses some of the best metals. This band is totally nickel-free, meaning that people with sensitive skin will still be able to wear it comfortably.
The best part of this ring is the price. At $756, the piece is significantly less costly than comparable alternatives. A 3-carat sapphire wedding ring can cost upwards of $4,000. Our pricing is much more accessible.
The Sona Simulated blue sapphire is just as durable as the Sona Simulated diamond. Not only is the stone scratch-resistant, but it is also comfortable for daily use.
If you clean the stone routinely, you can expect it to last a lifetime.
White Sapphire Halo Pear-Cut White Gold Ring Set
