What are Cushion Cut Diamonds?
This vintage cut, has been perfected and updated over 200 years to create a diamond with exceptional fire – the separation of white light into the spectrum of colors – and beauty. It is said to resemble crushed ice.
Featuring a square shape with rounded corners, the cushion cut resembles a pillow. It can be enhanced by surrounding it with more diamonds or other gemstones to create a truly individual piece of jewelry.
In the updated versions of the cushion cut, there are usually 58 facets. The many facets hide inclusions, and the rounded corners are very stable.
The cushion cut is frequently used with Fancy Color Diamonds to enhance their color.
