Cushion cut diamonds offer a lovely mix of geometric precision and more organic curves, since they feature a rectangular or square shape, but with rounded edges and sides. This is one of the best cuts for maximizing the play of color in a diamond, so cushion cut engagement rings are a striking choice.
About The Cushion Cut Engagement Ring
It’s easy to confuse a princess cut with a cushion cut, but keep in mind that the princess cut has sharp corners, while cushion cut corners are rounded. This gives them a softer shape, rather than the more strictly geometric princess cut. Radiant cuts also have rounded edges, but the cushion cut has straight edges rather than curved ones. Any of these make beautiful engagement rings, but cushion cut engagement rings have the softest look among diamonds.
