The History Of Cushion Cut Diamonds

Cushion Cut Diamond Ring
The cushion profile has undergone interesting refinements. These enhancements have been taking place over a period of time beginning with Marcel Tolkowsky during the 1920s. The culet shrunk in size with the table facet being enlarged and overall cut angles being modified to achieve increased brilliance. These adaptations have produced an enhanced cushion-cut that combines an antique aura with modern light performance. No wonder, the cushion cut has witnessed a revival in admiration.

Cushion VS. Other Shapes

Cushion Cut Diamond
The standard for an ideal cushion-cut diamond varies significantly in comparison with other diamond shapes. The choice is purely based on personal preferences. Some say the cushion diamond delivers better fire than a round brilliant which plays a big part in its appeal. Evolved cushion cuts usually display one of the three primary pavilion patterns. One such pavilion facet incorporates an additional row on top which has been classified as “modified cushion-cut”. This modified cut creates the visual effect of “crushed ice” and appears closer to the radiant cut instead of looking merely like a conventional cushion shape. At Diamond Exchange Houston you will be able to compare the cushion cut diamond vs. round diamonds, princess cut diamonds, oval diamonds, and other shaped diamonds.

The Multiple Shapes of Cushion Diamonds

Elongated Cushion Cut Diamonds
The shape of a cushion-cut diamond is ideally square. However, slightly quadrilateral specimens also look stunningly attractive. Some customers like the squarish cushion cut while other customers like a more elongated cushion cut diamond. The most desirable contour of a cushion-cut diamond tends to marginally rectangle with a length-to-width ratio ranging between 1.10 and 1.20. Nevertheless, it is best to physically inspect your chosen diamond for the visual affirmation instead of solely relying on the diamond certificate for size specifications.

I found amazing deals on engagement rings when I found Diamond Exchange Houston. Me and my now fiancé had searched at normal name brand jewelry stores before we found Diamond Exchange Houston. We were actually referred to them by a friend who had a custom engagement ring made there. Their diamond rings are like half as expensive as the other jewelry stores we shopped at. We were able to pick out the main diamond and have it placed in a ring they had we liked. They had it ready for us within a week. It also came with an GIA appraisal which we used to get insurance. 5 stars and we will be back for our wedding bands!

My mom bought her ring with Diamond Exchange many years ago and now I too am a client! I worked with Gili! He was professional during the process when I contacted him regarding my quest to find the prefect diamond ring. I was going to purchase online for competitive pricing, however, Gili took the time to explain the importance of seeing a diamond in person to make sure the ‘eye clean’ factor was there. Then the journey began with my customize band. I found pictures with precise features I desired. Gili delivered exactly what I wanted. I am meticulous and expected the best. Gili provided me the exact ring I wanted. He constantly kept me updated through the entire process. I have found an exceptional jeweler to work to make more custom pieces. I highly recommend Gili to anyone that is ready to purchase customized jewelry. Also his coworker Nic shares an office with him and is also a resource to contact! Either of them will assist you with comparing, finding, and providing you with the exact piece of jewelry your heart desires! Thank you Gili for proving me with a breath taking ring!

I would like to thank Nick for creating my dream ring. He took the time to send pictures during the design process and then again while creating the ring to ensure we were happy with the final product. This was a wonderful experience and the ring is gorgeous!

I went to Diamond Exchange Houston in search of a wedding band that would compliment a custom wedding ring I had made for Fiance. Diamond Exchange Houston did not disappoint. They were very accommodating and had multiple options to choose from. They were able to take our ideas and craft us the perfect wedding band to go with my Fiance's ring. The staff is very friendly and gave me updates on the band throughout the process. Their prices are very reasonable and quite frankly are beat all of the surrounding jewelers' prices.If you're in the Houston area and are looking for custom work or Jewelers I would highly recommend Diamond Exchange Houston.(P.S. I typically don't write reviews, but their work was amazing and I had to share!)
