Gazing through a different lens (looking less to the classicism of traditional diamonds) we're inspired by the renaissance of delicate pear cut stones, beautifully brought to life in rings by a new guard of designers embracing their non spherical shapes. Showcased best in unexpected settings, sometimes highlighting an alternative central stone (think smokey quartz, moonstones or champagne diamonds) we're in love with the stacking possibilities of partnering bands paired with their pointed forms.
More akin to a droplet of water than to any fruit, we've found a renewed appreciation for this timeless shape, a love of its irregular femininity and elongated form. While more traditional designs are often (stunningly) flanked by a complete halo of diamonds, we particularly love styles accentuating only a single end, magnifying the tip or gentle curve through side by side rings or undulating shapes (think Anna Sheffield's stacking sets or the curved silhouette of Mania Mania's Ritual Solitaire).
Offering an elegant alternative to a classic symmetrical cut, pear cut stones are particularly perfect for those who seek out the unexpected, or whose everyday jewellery will find an affinity with their irregular design. Our favourite part, the similarly unexpected wedding bands that best nestle beside these beautiful stones, stacked close in perfect synergy.
