Flattering for all hands, pear cut diamonds can be worn with the point facing up or down. The romance and elegance of this shape are made even more beautiful with a champagne coloured diamond rather than a classic white diamond. This continues the warmth of the delicate rose gold band, resulting in a rosy, pink-hued ring that is ultra feminine. As beautiful as this ring is in this colour combination, it would work equally well in any metal with a black or white diamond.
