Cushion-cut diamonds are a popular choice for engagement rings and other pieces of jewelry. This cut gets its name from its soft, rounded corners that make it look like a cushion or a pillow. The cushion cut can come in different shapes, either square or elongated, and there are a variety of cuts and faceting layouts available.
The Old Mine cut and Antique Cushion cut was popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and has larger facets and a smaller table, which is the flat top of the diamond. It has a more subdued brilliance than modern cuts, but it has a unique, vintage charm.
The cushion-modified cut is a newer variation and has a modified faceting pattern to increase its fire and brilliance. The cushion-modified cut has more facets than the antique cushion, creating more sparkle and a brighter appearance.
Finally, the cushion brilliant cut is a modern variation of the cushion cut with a faceting pattern similar to the round brilliant cut. The cushion brilliant cut has a smaller table, larger facets, and a higher crown, resulting in a diamond that sparkles brilliantly and has a lot of fire.
Regardless of the cut or faceting layout, cushion cut diamonds are known for their soft, romantic appeal and are a popular choice for engagement rings and other special pieces of jewelry. The cushion cut can be either square or elongated, making it a versatile choice, and the various cuts and faceting patterns offer a range of options to suit different styles and preferences.
