It was in this era that the Flemish diamond cutter Lodewyk van Berquem of Bruges, credited with pioneering many diamond cutting techniques, laid the groundwork for creating symmetrically faceted gemstones.

With the passage of time the groundwork in the diamond cutting resulted in the birth of several designs, which include the pendeloque or pear cut.

  • Length to Width Ratio: Shapes of pear cut diamonds may differ. Others are more roundabout. It is a matter of personal taste, but for the majority, the right proportion is 1.40 to 1.70.
  • Color and Clarity: The rounded end of pear cut diamonds makes color and inclusions much more visible in this area. So, choose a diamond with better color and clarity grades.
  • Carat Size: The diamond size is a matter of taste and is also budget dependent. However, larger pear cut diamonds usually demonstrate more color.
  • Setting: Equally significant is also the mounting of the diamond. A prong setting is suggested for pear cut diamonds, having a prong at the pointed end to protect it.
  • Bowtie Effect: A lot of pear cut diamonds possess a dark spot in the middle called the bowtie effect. Even if it is quite difficult to find a pear cut diamond without it, try selecting a diamond with a minimal bowtie.
  • Certification: Buy diamonds that are certified by the reputable labs like the GIA (Gemological Institute of America), which would guarantee the quality and the authenticity of the diamond.
