Renowned for their soft, square, pillow-like shape, cushion-cut diamonds feature modern brilliant-cut faceting, giving them a great deal of radiance and fire that superbly reflect white and colored light. Cushion-cut diamonds have the most fire of any cut, radiating bright and colorful flashes of light. They are extremely durable due to their rounded edges and more affordable by carat than brilliant round-cut diamonds. Their squared shape and rounded edges give cushion-cut diamonds an antique appearance that appeals to those who love vintage-style engagement rings.
For those interested in making a cushion-cut diamond appear larger, a halo setting is recommended to achieve this effect. With a halo setting, the tiny diamonds that encircle your cushion-cut diamond will give the illusion of a larger diamond with added sparkle. Or, let your cushion-cut diamond stand out with an elegant solitaire setting.If you want a traditional square-shaped cushion-cut diamond, choose a diamond with a length-to-width ratio of 1.00 to 1.05. A cushion-cut diamond with an elongated shape will have a length-to-width ratio of 1.06 to 1.10.
