The Most Trending Pear-Shaped Engagement Ring Styles For 2023
If you love pear-shaped engagement rings, then 2023 is your year. The teardrop stone has tons of sparkle, looks larger on average than a round cut, and it’s more affordable to boot. No wonder it’s making every trending list the internet has to offer.
In even better news, pears make the list themselves and look stunning in almost every setting that’s topping the style charts of the year. Need help narrowing it down? Here’s a list of the top most trending pear-shaped engagement rings of 2023.
Why Choose A Pear-Shaped Engagement Ring?
Style aside, there are many reasons why these teardrop stones are a smart pick for your engagement ring.
Pear-shaped diamonds are a brilliant cut, so they have tons of that glittery sparkle we love to see in engagement rings. The classic shape creates a unique silhouette in almost any setting, while the elongated shape is flattering to the finger.
Pears also provide great finger coverage, meaning tons of surface area to show off extra sparkle. It also means pears tend to look larger carat for carat than a round cut.
Like most fancy-shaped stones, pears are more affordable than a round brilliant, so you can spend more of your budget on picking the perfect stone or setting. Because pears already look larger, you can snag a way bigger stone for the same cost.
