The pear cut is a mixture between a marquise cut, and a round cut. The shape of the drop, if mounted on a ring, should be worn preferably with the tip towards the nail, as it makes the fingers thinner. This particular cut diamond was created by Lodewyk van Berquem in Belgium in the early 1400s. Van Berquem innovated in the diamond cutting technology and also introduced new polishing methods: some of his innovations are still used today.

The pear-cut diamond uses 71 or 58 small triangular facets. It is not easy to make one, even if this type of cut involves a lot of leftovers. Although it is more difficult to cut, the shape of the pears has advantages. For example, with the arrangement of the facets, any inclusion may be more difficult to detect. Conversely, in diamonds with fewer facets such as Asscher or emerald, the inclusions are much more visible. Cutting pears also offers an advantage to those who wear it, as it tends to make your fingers more slender.
