I like the halo setting because it makes the shape of the stone look better. i sometimes think that a solitare pear looks a bit strange because of the prongs. I got my ring from Brilliant Earth

I just love pears with a halo. One of my favourite styles. For me, unless the pear is big, it looks unfinished without a halo, in a way that, say a round cut doesn’t. I definitely wouldn’t have a long-ish pear without a halo as they can look spiky. I think a plain band and a halo is stunning with a pear.

I don’t know if this pic helps but what I liked about this ring was that the bezel gave definition to the shape of the centre stone.  it was my runner up ring. Sometimes I find a halo distracts from the beautiful pear shape.   Although – having looked at Emma111111’s beautiful ring, I guess it would be different if it was set in yellow or rose gold because the different coloured gold would give definition to the stone. You have a tough choice!

I love pears both ways, but I have this pic saved on my phone. I love it!

shoutouttoallthepear:  I adore pears with halos, probably because I have one myself.  I just feel like it adds and enhances the the shape of the pear.  I’m sure you’ve seen mine in other pear/halo post but here it is again.  Happy pear picking!
