Cushion

Cushion

Existing since the mid 1700s, this luminous shape was the most common cut until the early 20th century.

The Cushion Shape features a mixture of square cut and elegant rounded corners, originally designed to retain as much weight possible from the original rough. The incorporated larger facets not only enhances the stone's brilliance but also emphasizes on the Diamond's clarity, somewhat similar to Emerald. Its shape has altered over the years as Diamond cutters adapt to modern day taste with a less chunkier finish although antique dealers continue to seek for older versions of these Diamonds.

A person who fancies the soft romantic look of a Cushion Shape is an outstanding person who is family-oriented as well as a pet lover.
