I just received a picture of my .92 RB and the new pears that WF got in for us. They are a little narrower, which is good, but is it my imagination or is the right one noticeably larger than the left one?


Here's the picture of the new look (I shrunk the image to 50%) to make it look a little more life size). What are your opinions? (I don't know the dimensions of the sides.)


ETA: I'm not sure shrinking the image worked. Oh well. You get the idea.

What are the pears'' carat weights? I''m sure WF wouldn''t give you two unmatched stones.

Hey zoe,

Looks great to me, and it''s your imagination.


I love this style ring!

I like these narrower pears better than the last ones-they''re very pretty! I don''t think one is bigger than the other, but if you''re worried about it, perhaps you can get Whiteflash to give you measurements?

I didn''t mean to imply that WF would do two different sizes. Each time I look at them, it changes, so as Ellen said, it must be my imagination.

I love them! These should be about 1.50-1.55:1 L:W ratio, as that''s what WF said they''d try to get in. I had forgotten about that e-mail. All that''s left to do is show them to my boyfriend, then let WF know they can get the ball rolling. This is exciting!

Hey Zoe,

I''m no pear expert but they look the same size to me as well and very pretty! I really like the look of a RB flanked by pears it''s going to look great

Thanks everyone! We''re so excited about getting our ring. It''s going to be really hard to wait but definitely worth it!

I like them a lot!!! To tell you the truth one of mine is fatter than the other, no one else sees it but me. I like it that way, as I know it's my ring especially if I have to have it sized, cleaned or whatever. The difference is miniscule. I say these are very nice, so go for it!!!

I'' d swear the one on the left side of my screen is bigger (fatter) than the one on the right. But, I don''t think it''s a deal breaker or will even be noticeable once set. Like Kaleigh said, it will make it your ring and you''ll always know it!

zoe, i don''t think you''re totally off base here...after looking at my monitor several times i did notice that the center stone table is slightly tilted towards the right pear, could this be creating an optical illusion? Also, the left pear seems a bit narrower at the tip than the left, but i honestly think when the stones are all set there is no way one would be able to tell if they were actually a teensy bit differently sized whether they are or not.

So, I saved your picture to my file then printed it out. I cut out the pears and stuck them on top of it other and they are pretty much the exact same size!! Must be an optical illusion!

I e-mailed WF and told Bob that we love the pears and we can't wait for the ring to be made. Jenray -- thanks for checking on the size. You really didn't need to do that but I appreciate the effort. We're so happy with the look and we're so excited. So far, so good...this has definitely been the biggest purchase we've made and we're very impressed with the service we've gotten. I'll keep you posted! Thanks once again for you help everyone!

You''re welcome. But honestly, it was for my own peace of mind!! LOL I kept analyzing the photo and my eyes were starting to hurt!!


Good luck with the project!

Just saw this thread...here's a shrunken picture. I prefer your first pair. ETA: actually, going back to the old thread, the first pair was too wide. These are better.

Lovely proportions. It does look like the one on the right is slightly fatter, but then when firegoddess shrunk the image you would have to look *really* hard to ever notice that. With shapes like pears and marquise, I think it''s almost impossible to get the two perfectly matched and I think these two are definitely close enough.
