Cushion Cut Diamond Engagement Rings

Cushion cut diamonds are ultra-feminine, soft, and delicate with a pillow-like shape and a dazzling sparkle. The soft shape of this cut and its substantial surface area on the finger has made lasting impressions.

Cushion cut diamonds are as old as diamond-cutting itself, though current versions (with the exception of antique cushion diamonds) are a result of technological advancements and refinement of diamond-cutting techniques. The cushion cut diamond is classified by its square or rectangular shape with soft, rounded edges, which takes on a pillow-like appearance. The faceting of a modified brilliant cushion cut diamond places emphasis on brilliance and sparkle, while effectively hiding diamond imperfections and diamond color. Cushion cut diamonds have several cut styles that reveal a slightly different overall appearance from style to style: the brilliant cut, the antique cut or “old mine cut,” and the crushed ice cut. Cushions tend to fall within the length-to-width ratios of 1:1 (for a more square look) to about 1:1.2 (for a more rectangular/elongated look). We find the 1:1.1 ratio a popular range for elongated cushions.
