Cushion Cut Diamonds
Cushion-cut has been popular for more than a century. Cut into a square or rectangular shape with rounded corners and sides, it’s considered by many to be a softer version of the Emerald cut. With a soft and romantic look, the Cushion-cut has rounded corners and larger facets to increase the stone’s brilliance.
For a cushion-cut diamond that is square, look for length-to-width ratios between 1 and 1.05. If you prefer a rectangular shape, look for length-to-width ratios greater than 1.15.
