All About the Cushion Cut Rings
All About the Cushion Cut
Similar to a princess cut, cushion cut diamonds are cut into squares but with softer edges, giving them the appearance of a delicate pillow. While they are generally less brilliant than other diamond cuts, such as the round cut, cushion cut stones often have a more radiant fire, making them dazzling in their own right. The cushion cut is a popular choice for colored stones, such as pink or yellow diamonds, thanks to its inherent ability to retain the natural color of the stone. Cushion cut diamonds are renowned for their enduring sophistication and softness that add a romantic element to engagement rings.
History of the Cushion Cut Diamond
The origins of the delicate cushion cut date back to the 19th century when it had 58 facets and was referred to as the “mine cut.” Over time, advances in diamond cutting technology allowed the cut to evolve into the 64 facet cushion cut known today. When the cut was originally created it was immensely popular and was found in diamonds and other gemstones. As time passed, the cut has experienced various levels of popularity and has always been considered an elegant cut. Some of the world’s most famous diamonds, such as the Hope Diamond and the Tiffany Diamond, are cut in this shape.
Why Choose a Cushion Cut Ring?
There are many reasons to choose a cushion cut engagement ring, such as the delicate, amorous appearance of the stone. These beautiful diamonds are exquisite in any type of ring style, whether it be a stunning solitaire, a beaming halo ring, or a symbolic three stone ring, but they look especially remarkable in vintage-styled rings. A cushion cut ring’s large facets allow for the inner fire of the diamond to glisten when the light hits the surface of the stone. Meghan Markle, Ashley Tisdale, and Jennifer Garner are a few of the many celebrities who have appreciated the elegant beauty of this cut.
