Pears are similar to the teardrop pattern, except they are generally smooth instead of a cut prism (with facets). Pears come in half-cut (flat one side), full-cut (curved both sides). Pears come in many colors and are mostly used with top beads, but can also hang by themselves from chains and bobeches. Crystal pears are a terrific accent piece for any chandelier and can easily be the focal point. They are known for their simple beauty and elegance.
