Is a 10x8mm pear stone too round?

I personally love the look of chunky/fat pears but I think if you went down in width by 0.5 mm it would give you that elongated look of your fingers you’re going for!

Here’s a link to a guide for pear shaped diamonds. I used it when I purchased my pear shaped replacement.

The look of pear shaped diamonds are very personal, so there’s really no wrong dimensions for this fancy cut stone. According to GIA standards, the L/W ratio is the length in mm divided by the width in mm.  Then you can compare it to the chart to see what the rating would be. Hope this helps you decide in choosing your pear.

Yeah going to go against the grain and say I don’t like this. Too chunky for my liking I love the enlongeated look (I also have short fingers!)

IMO, I don’t know if I would be able to tell it’s a pear unless you A. Told me or B. I stared for an extended time. It looks like an oddly shaped oval. Definitely at first glance I wouldn’t catch the shape. I don’t think it’s very flattering on your hand and believe a true, elongated pear would look so lovely!!

I think it’s way too round.  I feel like a good pear looks more oval with a point.
