I've learned alot about round diamond here but I've never looked into pear ones. I've been searching for few and saw it says ratio. Just want to ask if there is a certain ratio I should look for, avoid or it doesn't really matter?

I would look for what you like? Do you want a long skinny pear or a short fat pear?

It totally depends on what you like, I knew I did not want a skinny one and got lucky finding exactly what I wanted.

I don't think a skinny pear is particularly attractive for ring or pendant. I think lknvrb4's pear is a well balanced size, not too fat and not skinny. Sorry I don't know any ratios. But truly, you just have to look at pictures and see which one looks beautiful to you just like any fancy shape diamond!

It's best to look at some pears. Personally I like em on the fat size. My pear is 1.41.

Mine's 1.54:1, which I like, but I'll admit that when I was looking I was actually keeping an eye out for fatty pears and skinny pears - I like the unusual ones!
