    I have a pear shaped diamond ring (not my engagement ring) and have always worn it with the point facing the tip of my finger.
    Yesterday at a training, I saw a woman with her ring the other way.
    I JUST kept staring at it. I couldn't figure out if I was wearing mine "wrong" or if she was... Is there a "right" way to wear it or is it just preferance? Which way would you wear one?

      my first e-ring was pear shaped, and i wore it with the point facing my fingernail (like you). it's really a personal preference. somebody will probably tell you there's a right and wrong way ... but who cares!? lol i'd wear it how you like it best.

          Yeah I would wear it like you...not sure why, but to me it would almost seem backwards the other way.

          I would wear it the way you do, longways. I think if I wore it the other way it would make my fingers look fat. Of coure my center diamond of my e-ring is a princess cut and I don't wear it as a square, its set like a baseball diamond (that's what my DH told the jeweler when she asked him how he wanted it placed-such a man)

            That is what I was thinking. And, it was big enough that I would worry about the point "stabbing" my hand if I bent my fingers back a bit.
            I just couldn't seem to stop staring at her finger. LOL

              yeah i have never seen it worn with the point facing any other way except the fingernail - weird - but to each his own.

              my mom has a pear - it's really pretty!

                yeah, the other way sounds backwards.

                  I LOVE THAT! Like a baseball diamond! Too funny! I also have my mom's marquis. It is not set with the points lined up with the finger but with them at a slant. I like the different settings - but not the pear with the point down.

                    I agree, not really sure why, but I would point it towards the fingertip.
