A fusion of the classic round-brilliant and marquise diamond shapes, pear-shaped diamonds are also sometimes known as teardrop diamonds. They possess the sparkle of a round-brilliant diamond but stun with the fancy shape of a marquise. A pear-shaped diamond comes to a point at one end and is rounded on the other end. Traditionally, the diamond is worn with the point facing upwards, and pear-shaped diamonds are flattering center stones for engagement rings because they make the finger appear longer than it is.
