What is a cushion-cut gemstone?
Visually similar to a square cushion, this soft-edged cut has a timeless appeal and has been around since the eighteenth century. Cushion cut engagement rings, from solitaire to halo cushion cut settings, emphasise the stone's curved sides. In recent decades, we have seen a huge comeback of the cushion cut in engagement ring gemstones. Celebrities like Bar Refaeli, Sofia Vergara and Kim Kardashian wear cushion-cut engagement rings.
A sparkling square-cut gemstone with roundish, gently curving corners best defines the shape of a cushion-cut stone. Cushion-cut gemstones are usually square-shaped but some cushion-cut stones are elongated and rectangular. Elongated cushion cuts have a length-width ratio of 1.10 to 1.20.
Cushion-cut diamonds in engagement rings
Coloured gemstones in cushion-cut settings have always been very popular for engagement rings. However, diamonds are still the traditional top seller when you want to pop the question. Cushion-cut diamonds are almost 25% more affordable than the typical round-cut variety with the same caratage.
Different types of cushion cut diamond engagement ring
The Cushion Brilliant cut comes with a higher price tag. Super sparkly, this is not typically square and usually has a length-width ratio of 1.25 to 1.10. The fewer, larger facets (58) of this cut amplifies brilliance.
The Antique Cushion or Cushion Old Mine Cut or Miner Cut has geometric facets and is considered rare.
Cushion Modified cuts are the modern, trending versions of the original cushion-cut diamond. There are two modified cushion cuts: Crushed Ice and Hybrid Cushion cuts, both featuring 64 facets for exceptional brilliance.
The Crushed Ice cut has shorter star facets giving the stone a "crushed ice" look.
The Cushion Hybrid cut combines the faceted style of the brilliant and "crushed ice" cushion cuts.
