I love pear shape stones. If I didn’t get my princess, I would get a pear…heck I want one for my right hand. They are so gorgeous in halos as well.

Not a fan, I do tend to think they look more 80’s than modern. I have a cushion and adore it.

I <3 pears. I still get a lot of compliments, mainly from college aged girls as opposed to older women.

Pears have grown on me for sure.  I originally didn’t like them for the same reason sweetchiquita12 said, but I think they can look beautiful depending on the setting.

I like pears – but mostly only in halos. Princess cuts are not my taste, though. I have a round diamond! Can’t get any more sparkle! love it!

@GoldfishPie:  I agree. I’d use a pear-shaped stone as a cocktail ring but not as an engagement ring. I’m just not really a fan. I prefer round cut brilliants.

They are nice, but not my cup of tea. I like round only.

I love pear shapes! I wouldn’t say they look modern, but they’re gorgeous and a little bit different.

Not my favorite personally but I have seen some gorgeous pear shaped rings on other people.

I think they are gorgeous. And I think it’s pointless trying to pick a ring that’s “modern” since hopefully you will be wearing it for many many years to come when it becomes “old fashioned!”

 

Go with what you love!

I don’t own one but I think they are really pretty. I do not think “old lady” when I see one.

Personally, I don’t care for them. But it’s your engagement ring and you will be wearing it everyday. You should get what you feel comfortable with and what you like. I have a cushion cut with a halo and I absolutely love it so I wouldn’t care if other people liked it or not.
