There are probably a couple of things going on here.

On the <Alias>name</Alias>, do you really need Tomcat
to respond to the host name of www?  You probably just
want Tomcat to respond to www.theuniquepear.com and
theuniquepear.com.  I don't think the
<Alias>www</Alias> is necessary.

It looks like www.theuniquepear.com is a CNAME for
theuniquepear.com.  A CNAME is resolved to the
underlying name, so I think the resolution goes like
this:

a) www.theuniquepear.com is a CNAME for 
   theuniquepear.come
b) theuniquepear.com is used to get the address

Google comes back with theuniquepear.com in its search
results.

Instead of a CNAME, you could use a separate A record
to resolve www.theuniquepear.com to your web site. 
That still would leave you with a certificate problem
if someone entered theuniquepear.com in the browser
address bar.

Maybe reversing the CNAME entries is what you need. 
In other words:

www.theuniquepear.com IN A     66.128.124.198
theuniquepear.com     IN CNAME www.theuniquepear.com

That would get Google to return www.theuniquepear.com
in irs search results. There would still be a
certificate issue if someone typed theuniquepear.com
in the browser address bar.

Some thoughts on a solution:

a) Not respond to theuniquepear.com as a web site.
b) Virtual host that responds to theuniquepear.com 
   consisting of a single page with a redirect to 
   www.theuniquepear.com.

Just some random thoughts . . . .
