Cushion cut diamonds are cut with large facets, which allow them to catch the light and give them as much brilliance as possible. This cut results in rounded edges, which gives them a soft, dreamy style with vintage appeal. It’s no surprise that cushion cut engagement rings are so popular at the moment, and here are some of the questions we’re often asked about these diamonds. 

What are cushion cut diamonds?

Cushion cut diamonds are a square cut with rounded corners, and lots of facets, which give it the shape of a cushion or pillow. If you’re planning a proposal, look at custom cushion cut engagement rings in Brisbane. Cushion cut diamond rings are created in a range of materials, from gold to platinum, and can be customised to suit the recipient’s style. 

Are cushion cut diamonds a new style?

While cushion cut diamonds have become popular in recent years, the style has been around for a long time. It was developed over 200 years ago and was a variation of the old mine cut. The idea was to create a diamond with lots of facets, so it would sparkle by candlelight, and was sometimes called a candlelight diamond. Nowadays, you can find these gems in cushion cut diamond engagement rings in Brisbane, with the shape giving you lots of sparkle. 

Are cushion cut diamonds more expensive?

The way that cushion cut diamonds are cut gives them a larger surface area, so these sorts of diamonds offer excellent value for money.
