Now that you have seen for yourself how many teardrop engagement ring styles and options there are, we’re sure you have a few questions, too! Here are some of the most common questions the L&L team sees about these gorgeous statement pieces- if you have any more, you’re always welcome to reach out to us, too!
1. What does a teardrop ring signify?
The classic symbolism of the teardrop ring is the tears of joy a great romance will bring you. Of course, that needn’t be the only symbolism in your unique engagement ring- it’s up to you what the stone’s cut means!
2. How are teardrop rings supposed to be worn?
Most women choose to wear a teardrop ring with the point facing the fingertips and the round curve facing the wrist. However, there’s no wrong way to wear this versatile cut, so if you prefer to invert the stone, don’t let us stop you!
3. How big is too big for an engagement ring?
This is very much a matter of personal taste. Remember that the teardrop cut gives a lot of surface area, so larger stones could be vexatious if you’re very agile with your hands or do a lot of work with them. The setting also tends to be a little raised to accommodate the depth of the stone, so bear the practicalities in mind when choosing the perfect size for you.
4. Why are engagement rings tight in summer but loose in winter?
In the heat of summer, we tend to swell a little as our bodies rush to our extremities to balance the heat of the weather. In winter, we conserve heat by pulling blood away from surface tissue and into the depths of the body. So it’s perfectly normal to find your engagement ring is a little looser in winter.
Remember, you can always have your band resized to suit your unique anatomy, so don’t sweat this one too much!
A teardrop engagement ring brings beautiful symbolism and elegant lines to the table, and it’s hard to resist their unique, yet classic, allure. In fact, celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Paris Hilton, Ariana Grande, Cardi B, and the legend Elizabeth Taylor have worn some of the most iconic teardrop engagement rings.
If you’ve been dreaming of finding the perfect match to celebrate your union, we hope you’ve been thoroughly inspired by these spectacular teardrop engagement rings and the timeless elegance they bring to the table.
