How to find the perfect shape for your Pear Shaped Diamond?
In order to understand the ideal preference for the shape of your pear diamond, you need to know the Length to Width ratio. This is very straightforward to calculate. You take the length of the diamond and divide it with the width of the diamond (length/width) which we have highlighted for you on the certificate.
With regards to pear it is recommended that you buy a diamond where the ratio falls within 1.50:1.00 and 1.65:1.00. When a pear diamond has proportions that make the diamond appear too long or too short it detracts from the elegance and even the value of the diamond
Why is the polish for a Pear Diamond important?
The Diamond Polish refers to the finish done on the diamond’s surface after it has been cut. The facets of the cut diamond are polished so that it reflects and refracts optimal amount of light.
Why is the Symmetry for a Pear Diamond important?
Symmetry refers to how precisely the various facets of the oval diamond align and intersect. We highly recommend purchasing a pear diamond with only an excellent or very good grade for symmetry. This is because symmetry plays a key role in the beauty of the pear diamond as an asymmetrical pear diamond is a lot easier to spot than most other diamond shapes
The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has illustrated a very clear method of establishing the symmetry of your pear diamond with a naked eye.
In the below picture notice how the shoulders, bellies and wings in the illustration below are identical on either side of the line, and how the shape, size and placement of the facets in each half of the stone mirror one another. This is an ideal pear shape. You can use the illustration as a guide when picking a pear shaped diamond.
The GIA points out that the common areas where the shape of the diamond becomes unbalanced and the missymmetry is evident are the shoulders and the wings.
To give you an understanding, the below illustration shows a pear diamond with uneven shoulders and wings. As a buyer, it is good to understand the below image as it can prove extremely helpful in spotting an uneven looking diamond
The role of Fluorescence in a Pear Diamond
Fluorescence is the propensity of a pear shaped diamond to emanate a (soft) glow when presented to Ultraviolet light (UV light). At the point when UV light hits a diamond with fluorescent properties, the diamond emanates a glow. Regularly blue, it can likewise be shades of green, yellow, white or red. Fluorescence can happen in various forces. Gemological labs like the GIA rate diamond fluorescence on a scale from "None" to "Very Strong".
