It really depends on the setting more than the actual shape of the stone. So to answer your question with more questions: Is there open space beneath the stone? Is the ring bezel set? is there a prong that covers the sharpest edge of the stone, or only side prongs? Is it set high or low? How large is the stone? What is the material it’s set in? Is it a diamond, sapphire, moissanite, or garnet etc…? When do you take your ring off, if ever, and what do you regularly do that involves your hands? These are all far more important questions regarding the care of your ring. If you have a style/specifications in mind for your question, I would be more than happy to give you my thoughts. 🙂

I have a princess cut so I know a thing or two about sharp edges since I did a lot of research. Make sure your pear is set with a v-tip on the pointed edge for extra security. 🙂

My pear ring has never scatched anything, not that I’ve noticed anyway — but I definitely wouldn’t put on tights while wearing it. In fact I take it off at night and don’t tend to put it back on until after I’m dressed in the morning. I take it off to cook, clean, garden, shower, etc. But yeah, it’s never scratched anything or anyone to the best of my knowledge (including my puppy who, every once in a while, becomes fascinated with it) and I think of it as pretty big at 1.5 carats. It has two claw prongs at the top and a v-prong at the bottom. It’s a solitaire and the setting is very high — that took some getting used to. I take care of it pretty much the same way everyone else takes care of their diamonds — I regularly soak it in some water/Dawn/Windex and then scrub it with a soft toothbrush, rinse it, and dry it with my hairdryer. That’s it. I’ve had no issues (although admittedly I’ve only had it seven months).

I have a marquise, which has similar sharp edges.  I definitely accidentally scratched myself with it (as well as a few other people)- I looks like I just got a kitten in the house.  I got used to it and don’t really scratch anyone anymore.  The points do hold dirt- I use an ultrasonic cleaner and a toothbrush to get all the crud out.
