by Indylady » Sep 7, 2019 Hi friends! I’m looking for an icy pear (D - H) for an engagement ring for myself. Even though I have been on the boards for years, this is the first time I’m shopping for ‘the one’. I’ve spent most of my time over on colored stones, so this is all really new to me! I prefer elongated pears, but I’m reading that they don’t sparkle as much. I’d like to keep it under $4000 to leave some budget for the setting. Pear pricing is very confusing! Some pears seem like a total steal (like DBL has an M 1.58 for $3300, and Jewels by Grace has had some similar ‘steals’ that look very affordable), while some are very expensive. Size wise, I’d like to go as big as possible for my budget. I think that looks like a 1ct-1.5ct, maybe a little more if I find a crazy deal. Any thoughts or suggestions?
