Wy Are Cushion Cut Diamond Engagement Rings So Popular?
If you’re looking to propose in style, there are few better choices than a Cushion Cut Diamond Engagement ring. It is known for its exceptional glimmer or fire and looks equally stunning in a three-stone setting as it does in a solitaire. The cushion cut diamond has a squarer shape than its classic round brilliant counterpart and is more akin to the radiant or princess cut diamond rings you’ll find. Its rounded corners are a standout feature, as are the brilliant-style facets which give the diamond its famed ‘cushion’ shape. The unique shape of this diamond type means it looks extra brilliant; in other words, you’ll benefit from more ‘bling’! Best of all, you won’t find two cushion cut diamonds that look precisely the same as there are always differences in shape; some may be a little squarer while others could be rounder. You’ll also find them in a variety of settings including:
- Cushion Cut Diamond Pave Set Engagement Ring
- Cushion Cut Diamond Halo Engagement Ring
