Cushion Cut Diamonds
Cushion Cut Diamonds were an extremely popular diamond shape a century ago. A cushion cut diamond has a square or squarish-rectangular cut with rounded corners and are also known as "pillow-cut" diamonds. Cushion cut diamonds have larger facets which increase their brilliance and highlight the diamond's clarity in Cushion cut diamonds.
Cushion cut diamonds can vary in the degree of rectangular shape that they have. Cushion cut diamonds have a romantic look about them and have once again become extremely popular as a diamond choice. For cushion cut diamonds that have an almost square look but elegant and classical charm a length to width ratio of 1.1 - 1.2 is best.
