Hi Bees! This is my first post here 🙂
I am looking at upgrading my ring. I think I’m going to get a 0.7ct pear solitaire, on a yellow gold twist band. So excited! Just waiting for the jeweler to get the diamond in to the store.
Who else has a pear? Please show me!! And please let me know the ct so I can see how it looks.
Also my jeweler warned me about the ‘bow-tie’ effect. Is this noticeable? I am not too worried about but would love to hear opinions from people who have the pear cut.

I havent got it yet but I’m hoping to get this for my birthday as a RHR. It’s .10 ct, YG, bezel set. I have super tiny fingers (US size 2.5 – 3) so it should look a little more substantial on me. If FI and I were to do it all over again and get me a new ERing I think I’d get a pear. They are beautiful

Here’s mine (ignore the horrible swollen fingers!). My pear is .98 carat (1.38 tcw) and it’s so hard to get a photograph which even comes close to doing it justice! It’s so sparkly and I get lots of compliments on it IRL…I think the lower quality the diamond, the more chance of getting the ‘bow tie’ effect so choose wisely!

I have pear side stones – 0.15cts each. I have a teeny bow tie in each of mine but I never notice it with stones of this size. I love them!

@linnylou_88 I LOVE that ring! I love the simplicity of it, and I love the yellow gold. I actually already had it on my pinterest board as one of the inspiriation pics for my ring. Hope you get it!
