Also referred to as a 'teardrop' shape. This fancy-shaped brilliant-cut diamond has a rounded end and a single point. Many who like the look of the round but want a fancy shape alternative choose the pear-shaped diamond. If you choose a longer pear shape, the length of the diamond creates a slimming effect on the fingers. When choosing a color grade, consider that while the price of a J-color fancy-shaped diamond is exceptional, color may be slightly visible in its corner.
