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 had an amazing experience with Nick. He took his time going through every thing I brought to make sure I was able to get top dollar. He went above and beyond and was very informative. Best place to sell gold and diamonds and get the best price. I will never go anywhere else to sell jewelry again. Also when we are ready to buy an engagement ring we will be back because they have the best prices in Houston.
