A very modern take would be to flip it east-west and bezel it. A simple rose gold bezel would be gorgeous! And you could have an Etsy metalsmith do it for probably around $500.

I love pear shaped stones! I would go for a halo setting on a thin band to make the pear stone the main focus

@starla:  Sorry not a fan of the east-west settings at all, I HATE THEM, a diamond like a pear should go with the shape of your finger, not against it!! I definitely wouldn’t do it with a pear, i mean if anything maybe an oval or marquis, not a pear!!!<–can you tell I feel strongly about this?

I friggin LOVE this setting for a pear:

Rose gold would be beautiful.  I think a halo on pear looks good, but solitaire is very pretty too.  I just have a pear solitaire on a white gold band. 

I would look around etsy – there are some great inspirations there, my favorite ring store is called EidelPrecious. I wanted one of her pear rings SO badly but my Fiance wanted me to have a diamond not a sapphire (which is all that was listed when we got engaged).

your post kind of makes it sound like you don’t love the cut for a ring.  and you say you are only leaning towards setting it as a ring.  personally, I think pear cuts look best when hanging like a raindrop.  I suggest having it turned into a pendant. 

do a google image search for “pear diamond necklace” and you will get a TON of different design ideas. This one below is my favorite:

@eagle:  that’s beautiful!

I think a delicate halo with a thin band would be amazing and really highlight the stone.

I think a halo would “fill out” the diamond a bit more, and with a micro-pavé band, it would be gorgeous! I’d go with white gold or platinum as well, but that’s more a personal preference.
