My soul is a raging sea inside a teardrop
The cut of a diamond or gem’s shape ultimately determines their ability to sparkle. A gem possesses a unique shine defined by the number of facets and how light travels through the stone. With flat, polished surfaces from within the gem, these facets work to maximise the gem’s ability to draw in and reflect the light for an exclusive brilliance and sparkle. Extraordinary and classic, welcome to The Unique Versatility Of Teardrop Jewellery.
Every drop counts
Celebrities from Rhianna to Angelina Jolie, Paris Hilton and many more love to flash their teardrop pear-shaped gems for the world to see thanks to its rare sparkle. We love its shape for its uniqueness and versatility, complementing vintage to modern styles.
Resembling a dew droplet and the shape of the luscious pear, teardrop-shaped gems with their asymmetrical curves combine the round brilliant cut with the points of a Marquise. Known for its distinctive pear shape, the teardrop features one rounded end tapering to an opposite point for a striking silhouette. This makes the gem appear larger while increasing the sparkle.
With more surface area than round cut diamond rings, the overall effect of its brilliant symmetry and design is a stunning dangling bead for a sleek look that is both unique, timeless and classic.
Listen to the rhythm of the water drop
Whether the point faces up or down largely depends on the setting and can be a personal preference – especially for engagement rings -though the standard is point up and drop down for an impactful visual effect that is eye-catching and always flattering.
While the teardrop is not as popular as the princess or round brilliant, its shape holds an unconventional appeal for modern vintage-inspired and modern-yet-timeless designs that elongates the area its featured upon – especially fingers, décolletages and ears.
Every teardrop is precious. If some drop, make sure they’re worth crying for: you can never pick them up and put them back.
The symbolism of pear-shape gems are associated with tears – more specifically, tears of joy, linking with marriage, happy occasions and love. Wearing teardrop jewellery is associated with fierce confidence, marking new beginnings and hope.
They can feature easily as a large statement piece or smaller for subtle everyday wear. From adding a touch of elegance to a formal look or adding a bit of zhush to the staple tshirt and jeans, teardrop jewellery never looks over-the-top and flashy.
It’s funny how a heart is two teardrops upside down
First fashioned by Flemish diamond polisher and cutter Lodewyk van Berquem of Belgium in the early 1400s, his one-of-a-kind placement of diamonds laid the foundations for today’s modern symmetry in diamond polishing and cutting. The teardrop pear-shaped cut uses either 71 or 58 triangle shaped facets and often causes the loss of a great deal of rough diamond – an expensive process that makes for an exceptionally rare shape.
While the teardrop has waxed and waned in popularity across the ages, its uniqueness always returns to the limelight. Teardrop jewellery are the versatile and elegant accessories to add sophistication and emotional depth to your look while always making a statement to express your unique sense of style.
