Thus, many people wearing this kind of diamond ring cut in a teardrop shape pointed outward at the end of their fingers. In this way, it allows the gem’s elegant and slimmer like the diamond itself. On the other side, when the other side of the diamond ring faces the outward portion, your pear shaped engagement ring may appear larger. You can also find such engagement ring set vertical to the fingers. This will just depend on the wearer.
The Teardrop Cut

The six prong setting is elegant, simple and beautiful. Aside from its appearance, it is also a less expensive one.
When it comes to the fancy pave setting, it includes a large single pear stone bounded by many smaller round stones. It features the teardrop diamond mainly parallel to your fingers with smaller marquise, pear or round stones facing out.
