What is a Cushion-Cut diamond?

First emerging in the Georgian and Victorian eras, the Cushion Cut (also known as "Old Mine Cut") resembles a pillow or cushion with gently rounded corners. Their length-to-width ratio varies, offering squarish cuts, or elongated, more rectangular shapes.

The exclusively designed SH collection of white diamond, yellow diamond, and sapphire Cushion-Cut engagement rings features both square and rectangular-shaped gemstones, in Solitaire, Timeless and Halo styles.

      Why choose a Cushion Cut?

      Cushion Cuts are known for their exceptional brilliance and fire. The combination of larger and smaller facets creates a captivating play of light within the diamond or Cushion-Cut sapphire, making it a stunning focal point that sparkles effortlessly against a backdrop of 18k gold.

      Famous engagement rings, such as Zoë Kravitz's rumoured $300,000 Cushion-Cut diamond ring and Meghan Markle’s three-stone Cushion-Cut engagement ring, have further boosted demand for this celebrity-endorsed style in recent times.

      How many facets in a Cushion-Cut diamond?

      The number of facets in a Cushion-Cut diamond or sapphire can vary, but typically ranges between 58 and 64 facets. The exact number of facets depends on the specific design and cutting style employed by the diamond cutter.

      The Cushion Cut is known for its unique blend of larger and smaller facets, contributing to its distinctive appearance and ability to showcase both brilliance (white light reflection) and fire (dispersion of coloured light).

      Are Cushion-Cut diamonds good?

      Whether a Cushion-Cut diamond is considered "good" depends on various factors, including individual preferences, the specific characteristics of the diamond or sapphire, and the quality of its cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight (referred to as the "Four Cs").

      All Cushion-Cut diamonds from SH Jewellery Melbourne are GIA-graded and inscribed with a matching serial number. This ensures diamond authenticity and quality, so you know exactly what you’re paying for, based on the expert opinion of the world’s leading authority on diamond quality.

      Why are Cushion-Cut diamonds cheaper?

      Cushion-Cut diamonds are not inherently cheaper than Round or other Fancy Diamond Cuts. The price of a diamond is primarily determined by the combination of the "Four Cs": cut, colour, clarity, and carat weight.

      Cushion-Cut diamond rings, like any other cut, can vary widely in terms of these characteristics, and their price is influenced by factors such as the quality of the diamond and current market trends.
