Cushion cut diamond engagement rings have a center-stone diamond that is square in shape but with rounded corners that give it a ‘pillow’ look. The rounded corners of the cushion cut engagement ring creates a gentle and comforting feel and have a classic and contemporary look.
Cushion cut diamonds have large facets that maximize the diamond’s brilliance and fire. Their rounded edges also make them extra durable.
Cushion cut diamonds work especially well in cushion cut halo engagement rings. They are still also great options for cushion cut solitaire engagement rings, cushion cut three stone engagement rings, cushion cut bezel engagement rings, and cushion cut split shank engagement rings.
Because the diamond yield is greater for cushion cuts than it is for round brilliant cut diamonds, there is less wastage during the cutting process. Because of this, cushion cut diamonds represent a cheaper option on a carat weight basis that can provide you with greater bang for buck.
Cushion cuts represent a good option for those wanting something similar to the more conventional round brilliant cut, yet slightly less conventional and at a lower price point.
