Pear pendant designs: The pears that glitter
What is the first image that comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘pear’? It might remind foodies of the sweetness and aroma of the green-coloured fruit named pear and it might mean a body shape to some others. However, for a true lover of jewellery and gems, it conjures the sparkling picture of the pear-shaped diamond or gemstone dangling from an artfully crafted piece of ornament. Diamonds and colourful gems shaped like a pear look stunning when etched on any piece of ornament, especially pendants. Designers use such stones, also known as teardrop stones, to make a dazzling range of pear pendant designs in yellow as well as white gold.
Pear pendant designs: A Belgian saga
When you buy elegant pieces of jewellery, you seldom think of the hands that crafted them or the brains behind those designs. But before you buy a pear-shaped pendant, take a moment and pay your honours to Lodewyk van Berquem, a Belgian diamond cutter who fashioned the world’s first pear-shaped diamond in the fifteenth century. Jewellery makers experimented with this shape in the centuries that followed, which gave rise to many iconic pear-shaped pendants and earrings worn by the royalty and celebrities. Any book written on pear diamonds will certainly have a chapter on celebrities’ love affair with such diamonds and especially on the Taylor-Burton diamond – the iconic diamond Richard Burton gifted to Elizabeth Taylor who later wore it as a pendant on her necklace.
Pear shape and pendant designs: Made for each other
A unique feature of pear diamonds is that they could be used as pendants by piercing a hole at the narrow end. And that’s exactly how people first wore pear diamonds on their chains. Even today, the standard variety of pear pendant designs feature a pear shaped diamond with a hook attached to the hole made at its narrow end. A large pear-shaped central stone embedded in yellow or white gold is another popular variation you can find when you buy pear pendant designs. Modern jewellers give this classic pattern a contemporary flair by adding diamond halos around these central stones.
That’s not all. Pendants that use a combination of pear and other shapes and stylish designs made with multiple pear-shaped stones are also quite fashionable these days. Today, you can buy pear pendant designs online and the collections offered by online jewellers abound in style and design varieties. Being the perfect blend of round and marquise cuts, the pear-shaped stones add glitter and elegance to these pendants.
