The resurgence of the pear was kick-started by the engagement ring given to Ariana Grande by Pete Davidson back in 2018. Since then, celebrities, including Paris Hilton, Victoria Beckham, and most recently, Adele, have championed pear-shaped gems.
Despite the love/hate relationship, many have had with the pear in recent years, this quirky diamond has held firm as a classic.

A pear engagement ring is definitely not shy and unassuming. This distinctive gem will want everyone to know that it's on your hand. Many of the world's most famous diamonds are pears like the iconic 69.42-carat diamond owned by Elizabeth Taylor.
