If you have been keeping up with our blog, chances are by this time you are wondering just how many more shapes of diamonds could there possibly be? That is one of the beautiful things about diamonds – they come in all different shapes, colors and sizes – no two are alike.
If you have been keeping up with our blog, then you know that for the past few weeks we have been reviewing different shapes of diamonds. One of the main points that we have hoped to convey in our recent blogs is that when selecting a diamond shape only one thing matters – do you love it.
The pear shape diamond is also referred to (although less commonly) as the teardrop diamond. This shape of diamond was very popular during the Renaissance. A man named, Louis van Berquem of Brugge of Belgium was the first to develop the shape and cut of the pear diamond in 1458. History has also accredited him with being responsible for creating the 137 carat Floretine Diamond for the Valois Family.
