Calling all modern, bold, stylish, and elegant couples! Pear shaped engagement rings are calling your name.
A mix between a circle and a marquise style, pear shaped engagement rings (also called teardrop rings) are a modern classic. While the cut itself is hundreds of years old, pear shaped rings still feel more contemporary and glamorous than other designs. They have a certain je ne sais quoi that exudes style, sparkle, and major swoons.
If you’ve been seeing pear shaped engagement rings EVERYWHERE right now and are wondering if they’re the forever style for you, you’re not alone! We can’t get their chic shape out of our heads — so we put together this ultimate guide to help you find your pear shaped ring soul mate. Get ready to fall head over heels!

How to Wear Pear Shaped Engagement Rings
One of the best things about pear shaped engagement rings? There are SO many ways to wear them! With a more distinct shape than a classic round cut or princess cut ring, pear shaped styles are definitely interesting enough to stand on their own — so feel free to rock a single solitaire stone for a stand-out look!
Want something with a little more bling? Pear shaped engagement rings are also super stackable, despite their more irregular shape. Get a custom matching band that perfectly hugs the design of the diamond (or gemstone) for a classic look, or add a few non-traditional bands below the main ring for something modern and stylish! There are no wrong answers here.
We especially love adding a marquis or sunburst crown to pear shaped rings — tres chic.
Are Pear Shaped Engagement Rings Popular?
One word: YES! Over the past few years, pear shaped engagement rings have taken off in popularity, with the most stylish soon-to-be-weds rocking the modern shape. Even some of your fave celebrities have sported the style — from Sophie Turner to Megan Fox to Cardi B to the one and only Elizabeth Taylor.
And it’s easy to see why! They’re stylish and timeless at the same time, plus they’re super flattering and slimming on your finger. And, with an elongated shape, pear shaped engagement rings also maximize on sparkle — and tend to appear larger per carat than their more traditional counterparts (giving you more bang for your buck).
But despite their irresistible glamour and recent popularity, pear shaped styles are still more rare than many other ring shapes. That means that you’ll look totally elegant, without looking like everyone else.
What Does a Pear Shaped Engagement Ring Say About You?
If we’re talking symbolism here, pear shaped engagement rings are designed to represent tears of joy — making them a pretty perfect design to start your new married life.
Plus, pear shaped designs tend to be more trendy, glamorous, and bold than other ring shapes. They stand out from the crowd of round and square cut stones, without appearing too over-the-top or unconventional.
In other words, these rings are perfect for hopeless romantics that are modern, elegant, and super stylish. If we’re describing you (or your soon-to-be fiancée) right now, then a teardrop/pear style is probably a love match!
Do You Wear a Pear Shaped Ring Up or Down?
There are no rules for how to wear pear shaped engagement rings, so whether you point the tip up or down is completely up to you! But if you want to go with the more common style, you should wear the tip of the pear pointed up, toward your fingertips. This way, when you look down at your hand, the ring will look like the shape of a pear (or a teardrop!) from your perspective.
What Wedding Band Goes With a Pear Shaped Engagement Ring?
Like we mentioned before, there are so many types of bands that pair well with pear shaped engagement rings — it just depends on your style!
If you want something more traditional, look for a matching band that wraps around the setting of your pear shaped stone. This way, it’ll line up with the band of the engagement ring and mirror the patterns of the stone for a harmonious look.
But don’t feel like your band has to hug your ring perfectly! You can also make a statement with dazzling designs that add a bit of space between the engagement ring and the band (like the stunning Art Deco inspired diamond band pictured above!).
You can even double up on bands for a glitzy, one-of-a-kind look (we’re OBSESSED with the eye-catching combo of these stackable bands), or choose an unconventional design, like this glimmering wave-shaped band. Just try to balance elaborate engagement rings with more minimalist wedding bands, and vice versa, for a design that’ll withstand the test of time.
