What does the Cushion cut look like
The cushion cut diamond design is centred around the design of a cushion or pillow with a square shape and rounded edges. The cushion cut diamond is an extremely popular choice amongst couples and the uniquely shaped diamond is high on the list of engagement ring choices closely following the more traditional round and princess cut. In terms of technical aspects the classic cushion cut tends to have one of three pavilion facet patterns which give the illusion of crushed ice. The best length to width guide is a ratio of 1.00 – 1.03 for square cuts and 1.15 – 1.20 for rectangular designs. The diamond grades D-G are the best choices for colour however colours G – H have warmer tones so may be a better choice for your design. At Biagio we can assist you in creating a cushion cut engagement ring that is perfect for you and your loved one. The idea of the cushion cut is to create the illusion of fire which in non-technical terms refers to the light reflection and sparkle of the diamond creating both flashes of white light and also rainbows on the colour spectrum.
