The slender, tapered silhouette of these diamonds sets them apart from traditional pear-shaped stones. Their sophisticated lines capture all the sparkle that one associates with pear-shaped diamonds, but with a subtle twist. Both stones are distinguished by high color gradings, which is amplified by their teardrop shape: the gently rounded shoulders and clearly defined point make for maximum brilliance. It’s a graceful cut that has been used on such iconic stones as the Taylor-Burton Diamond, a 69.42 carat sparkler that Richard Burton gave Elizabeth Taylor. Complement the diamonds’ exceptionally cool, crystalline tone by setting them in a band of platinum or white gold.
The finished ring pictured here was selected from Sotheby’s archives to provide inspiration for designing your own bespoke jewel using the loose stone offered in this lot. This is just an example of the many designs that are possible and is not available for purchase.
