History of the pear-shaped diamond

Altesse Charm white gold

The pear-shaped diamond, also known as the teardrop diamond, has a fascinating history. Its origins date back to the 15th century, when Louis de Bourgogne, Duke of Burgundy, asked the jeweler Lodewyk van Berquem to create a new diamond shape in honor of the beautiful Marguerite of Austria. Thus was born the pear diamond, whose elongated, elegant shape recalls the softness of a teardrop. Today, the pear diamond continues to captivate with its grace and refinement. Its brilliant cut and unique silhouette give it dazzling brilliance and timeless charm.
