Cushion-Cut Diamond Engagement Rings
Over the course of the past few years, cushion cuts have once again become a diamond du jour for brides-to-be. And it's easy to see why! Shaped like a cushion (well, duh), these sparkling stones are the perfect compromise between a classic round brilliant-cut and iconic square princess-cut. And no two cushion-cut engagement rings are the same: they're an extremely versatile style stone that can be shaped to fit your exact taste and ring preference.
Cushion-cuts have been around for more than a century and originated from one of the oldest diamond cuts around, The Old Mine Cut. The only difference between the cushion cut and the old mine cut is that the cushion cut has more facets. In other words: more sparkle. Cushion-cut center stones can be more symmetrical like a square, nearly as round as a round-cut, or elongated like an oval or radiant-cut. And because it can be shaped in a number of ways, a cushion-cut stone fits right in with a number of the most popular engagement ring styles. You'll often find cushion—or Old Mine Cuts—starring in a vintage engagement ring, while halos tend to surround the more modern iterations of this popular shape. Of course, a cushion also looks great in a three-stone setting with baguette, pears, or trillions anchoring the center. Diamonds aren't the only cushion-shaped center stone you can go for, either: Plenty of sapphires and emeralds look extra glamorous in this pillow-shaped style, too.
