What Does A Cushion Cut Diamond Look Like?


What is the Cushion Diamond?

The cushion diamond has been available for over a century, which would qualify it as an “Antique Style” cut diamond shape. This unique shape of diamond has been compared to other diamond shapes including the oval diamond and the Old Mine Cut diamonds from long ago. However we feel that this beautiful shape is in a category all it’s own.

Cushion Cut Diamonds

Known for having 58, larger than average facets, you should consider paying extra attention to the clarity grade of this diamond shape. With it’s extra large facets, spotting inclusions in the diamond may be somewhat easier than many other shapes. Although the large facets demand extra attention in regards to the clarity grade, these large surfaces will also give “Cushion Diamonds” a very unique and bright sparkle.
