Frequently Asked Questions

Are Cushion Cut diamonds more expensive?

The cost of diamonds, including Cushion Cut diamonds, is determined by combining the 4 Cs: Carat, Clarity, Colour, and Cut. Compared to other shapes like the Round Brilliant, Cushion-Cut diamonds are often less expensive per carat.

What is so special about a Cushion-Cut diamond?

A Cushion diamond, with its unique blend of vintage charm and contemporary elegance, stands out for several reasons:

  • Vintage Allure: Its classic design evokes a sense of timeless romance, making it a favourite for those who appreciate vintage aesthetics in engagement rings.
  • Distinctive Shape: The round diamond corners and a square or rectangular body create a soft and romantic look. This distinctive shape sets it apart from more angular cuts.
  • Brilliant Sparkle: With its larger facets, this timeless choice is designed to maximise the diamond’s brilliance.
  • Versatility: The Cushion-Cut is adaptable to various ring settings, from solitaires to halo engagement ring settings. Its shape complements both contemporary and traditional designs.
  • Variability in Appearance: Cushion-cut engagement rings have variable facet patterns. Some have a “chunky” appearance with clear, broad facets, while others possess a “crushed ice” look, giving buyers more options to choose a diamond that aligns with their aesthetic preference.
  • Durability: The rounded edges of the Cushion Cut make it less prone to chipping, offering beauty and resilience.

Is the colour of clarity better for Cushion-Cut engagement rings?

Both colour and clarity are significant factors for Cushion-Cut engagement rings, but their importance can vary based on personal preferences. Due to its larger facets, the cushion cut can reveal more colour than other shapes, making a higher colour grade potentially more desirable.

These same facets can sometimes hide inclusions better than other cuts, allowing for a slightly lower clarity grade without visible imperfections. Ultimately, the balance between colour and clarity will depend on individual priorities and budget considerations. Consult our trusted jeweller, who will guide the decision-making process when in doubt.
