Pearshape Cut Diamonds
The Pearshape is a modification of the Round Brilliant cut, sometimes also called the Teardrop. The arrangement of Brilliant facets is extended into a Pearshape outline, usually consisting of 58 facets.
The dimensions of a Pearshape, as with other fancy shapes, are determined by the shape of the diamond crystal, from which it is cut. A Pearshape diamond of broader proportions can stand alone in a jewellery design, while an elongated shape is perfect for drop earrings.
Pearshapes can be matched in pairs for shoulder stones, as well as suites of graduating sizes for an impressive diamond necklace.
