Derived from the old mine cut, cushion cut diamonds combine the aesthetics of round and quadrilateral shapes. They share similar facet patterns in the crown with round diamonds, while their pavilion facets can vary in pattern. As a whole, their varied facetings can create either "chunky" or "crushed ice" visual effects. If you're torn between round and quadrilateral shapes, cushion cut diamonds are a good choice. ✍🏻Remember to choose an L/W ratio that suits your finger shape and preferred ring style.
