Cushion Cut Diamond Engagement Rings & Gemstone Rings
Cushion cut engagement rings are among the most beautiful rings available. At deBebians, you can find a gorgeous cushion set engagement ring for a wonderful woman in your life, or a loose cushion diamond to create a custom cushion engagement ring.
Cushion cut diamonds reigned supreme for over 100 years, until fading from popularity in the early part of the 20th century. Back then, this cut was also known as the old mine cut. Because the stone's square shape and rounded corners resemble a stuffed pillow, cushion cut caught on, and that's how they're recognized today.
Engagement rings for women are constantly evolving, and the cushion cut diamond is enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Contemporary cushion cut diamonds are cut into three distinct pavilion patterns. Please note that traditional vintage cushion diamonds are less brilliant than the popular round cut. Most modern cushion diamonds offer improved brilliance, making their radiance closer round and other cuts.
Cushion Brilliant vs. Cushion Modified Brilliant
Our diamond engagement rings featuring cushion cut stones typically feature stones rated by the GIA as cushion brilliant or cushion modified brilliant. Both cuts have faceting that sparkles in certain ways when gazing at a face up stone. Light flashes broadly within cushion brilliant stones, and these broad facets share similarities with the round cut. Alternatively, stones cut in the cushion modified brilliant style resemble crushed ice, which is due to their extra faceting. This added brilliance gives cushion modified brilliants the upper edge in popularity.
A third type of cushion cut is a hybrid cushion modified brilliant. This cut is less brilliant than a typical cushion modified brilliant stone, but more brilliant than broadly faceted cushion brilliant stones.
