Pear Shape Gems

Drop Shaped Gemstones From Directstones 


Pear shape gems have been in and out of the fashion scene for some time. Asian jewelry does use pear or drop shaped gems quite liberally. Having said that, the fact is that the entire global market for gems and jewelry has got very homogenised today. Things like 'typical' jewelry based on geographical location or country is becoming irrelevant.

It is fairly uncommon to receive jewelry orders where the center gem stone is pear shaped. However, the use of pear or drop shape gems as side stones is fairly common. You might even come across jewelry where pear shape gems are assembled closely together to form a flower pattern. While you could say that a pear gemstone is quite suitable for a ring, pendant or earring - the fact is that very few bracelet designs use drop or pear shaped gems.

Mounting a pear shaped gem is quite tricky, especially if you have not put enough thought into designing and crafting the gem mount for a pear shape stone. One thing is sure and that is, regarding a prong setting on the tip of the pear shaped gemstone. We would recommend a 'V' type prong for a drop shaped stone, this helps protect the pointed tip from getting struck with physical impact. If you talk about the rounded edge of the pear shaped stone (bottom) you could set it using two prongs or have a curved metal edge where the gem could be seated.

Should a drop or pear shaped stone be cut with a smooth (cabachon) cut or a faceted cut. The answer to this question would depend on a few factors. In general you will find that opaque gems are cut as pear shaped cabachon stones. This ofcourse is not a hard and fast rule, we have actually crafted stunning black onyx earrings with faceted pear shaped gems. The surface of the faceted pear gem could be flat or humped, with multiple facets (checkerboard) on the surface.

If you had to find pear shaped gems in sapphire, ruby and emerald - the general availability is from the 6x4mm to 8x6mm pear shape sizes. The shape and structure of pear shaped gems, allows to make efficient use of the gemstone rough. What this means is that the weight loss, during the cutting process can be quite moderate. There ofcourse is no reason why, larger pear shaped stones cannot be cut. The limited market for this gem stone shape, sometimes results in a 'scarcitiy' of the product. Gem cutting factories, do not want to keep ready cut gems and wait for extended periods to make a sale.

You will not come across many pear shaped  gem stone rings but, it is not tough to find one if you want to get such a ring. What is more common in terms of jewelry with pear shape stones is, pendants and earrings to a certain extent. One very interesting thing about pear shaped gem stone jewels is that, they are almost never set in mens jewelry. We would have to admit that the very few times, that we used pear or drop shaped stones in mens jewelry were very unique cases. We had once designed and crafted a hefty leapord ring in slver for a French gentleman, he insisted on using pear shaped rubies for the eyes of the animal.

Who Is Kaisilver?

Having established itself as the world's leading online custom jewelry provider, Kaisilver now extends it's merchandise line to include gems. While there is no shortage of gem stones in the global market, reliable sources for the retail buyer requirements are not many. Most retail gem dealers work with limited inventories, this reduces buyer options. Another problem with these small dealers is the lack of information and reliability when it comes to gem authenticity and value for money. Kaisilver with it's wide network of gemstone mining and manufacturing resources, is the best source for gems of all types, shapes, sizes and cuts. With a support team that is compromised of jewelry and gemstone experts, the advice and suggestions made by the team relate to your requirements and not to fixed sales targets. The website shows a small sampling of the gems that we offer. You can infact request for just about any gem on the globe. All gems are sourced directly from the source, closely inspected and then custom cut by our expert cutters. With a buyer base that includes fashion models, government officials, casino and resort owners, lawyers, financial experts, students and professors, doctors and surgeons, sportsmen and newsreaders we have become the preferred choice for quality gems and jewelry. By cutting out middlemen commissions and multiple agents, we provide great value for your money. Our large online operation does not stop us from welcoming even the smallest order. Gold and silver jewelry is custom made with equal attention to quality, material and craftsmanship. You can choose from our designs or send us detailed for the style and design that you need.


How To Order?

The process to order gems and custom jewelry at Kaisilver is similar. We do not expect you to make a rush purchase. We do wish that you take the time to discuss your requirements with our experts. They will be in a position to provide constructive suggestions that will guide you to make well informed buying decisions. Email all your requirements to provide as much inputs as possible to help us make relevant suggestions. For example if you are keen on getting a green gemstone but, are not particular about it being an emerald mention this in your email. Our gem experts might suggest a green tourmaline or even a peridot instead of an emerald. This suggestion would reduce our profit margins but will give you a gem that, is much cheaper and even more durable as compared to an emerald. When it comes to payments we offer some very suitable options. Paypal is the preferred form of payment, it is fair to the buyer and seller. The buyer when using paypal never needs to reveal credit card of bank information to the seller. We also accept direct bank transfers but prefer to do this on a case by case basis. When it comes to online transactions these days, both buyer and seller are afraid of frauds. It is quite possible that you do not feel comfortable working with us at Kaisilver. We sometimes feel a little uncomfortable with certain transactions too and prefer to keep away from them. There have always been fears of processing payments through Western Union money transfers. With the latest fraud reports, fake sellers and even fake buyers have been pulling off many online frauds using this mode of payment. At the same time we do understand that armed forces from the U.S who are stationed in various global positions sometimes have no other mode of payment besides Western Union. We therefore accept this mode of payment but at the same time, request you to avoid this mode if you do not feel comfortable using it. Shipping is done through FEDEX and you can expect a production lead time of around 4 to 5 weeks from the date of order confirmation and receipt of payment. Every jewel is fully custom made and requires the complete attention and concentration of highly skilled craftsmen. When it comes to gems, we could provide faster lead times and this can be discussed for each specific order.
