Cushion Cut Engagement Ring
Cushion cut diamonds seem to be an increasingly sought after choice for engagement rings, perhaps because this shape combines enchanting shimmer with a distinctive look and a romantic, subtly vintage allure.
The cushion cut originated from an antique cut that was at times called a “candlelight diamond,” because it featured large facets that were designed to sparkle in candlelight in the days before electricity. The cushion cut is a square shape with softly rounded corners that make it subtly resemble a pillow. The proportions of a cushion cut vary with the individual diamond, with some appearing more long and narrow, others closer to square.
