emkay07 :  hi bee! Is there a reason why you are thinking of going for a vs1 clarity? Pears are pretty good in hiding inclusions and I think you should go lower in the clarity (vs2 or even an si1) and go higher in color. Pears may be great in hiding inclusions but they are one of the shapes that show color the most so it’s advidable to go higher in color for a pear. I wouldn’t advise anything lower than an H color in a 1 carat stone or the color might show through in some lightings. I have an H color pear and in some lightings I can see the yellow peeping through. But since mine is a larger stone, it will show color more obviously than a smaller stone so I think you are fine with an H color. But not anything lower in my opinion.

This is my J color VS1 clarity 1.0 carat pear. Yellow gold settings show the color, but the white gold hides it.

emkay07 :  yea I think you should keep looking. Personally I don’t think the vs1 is necessary since it’s not as obvious as the color. I wouldn’t recommend going for an I. In fact, if I could do it all over again, I would have gone for a G and above for my own stone. But you’re definitely okay with an H for a 1 carat. The color will not show through as much. There is this chart I saw online where they recommend the minimum color for pears in different carat size and I’m pretty sure the minimum for an all white look for a 1 carat was an H. Unfortunately, pears are just one of those shapes that show color way more than other shapes so color is a priority in this shape.. Hope this helps!

emkay07 :  I never see color towards the tip, but in certain lighting I do rarely see a yellow-ish tone in the main body of it if it’s dirty. Not nearly as often since I switched to a white gold setting though. It was originally in a yellow gold setting and I obsessed over the color so much, but now I literally never notice it.

.7 I VVS2 center . There’s some warmth which I like with yellow gold. If you’re going with yellow/rose gold, should be fine. If white gold or platinum, no lower than G

I almost did a halo and love that look, I may add one someday, but my husband chose my setting and I LOVE IT!!!!! I cant wait to see yours. I just got mine and have been posting it EVERYWHERE lol.

I have an H in a yellow gold bezel for my RHR. The whole body looks white almost all of the time… I only see a bit of yellow when it’s out in direct sun… and that could be mostly from the setting 🙂 Pears are so beautiful! So excited for you!
