Cushion Cut Diamonds

Cushion cut diamonds are defined in 3 categories:

Cushion Brilliant, Cushion Modified Brilliant and Antique Brilliant.

Antique cushions were cut in the early part of the 20th century and are easily identified by their distinctive face and cut characteristics– fewer, larger facets than Modern cushions.

Modern cushions are more brilliant than Antique cut and have a superior‘ face size to weight ratio’ as a result of having a deeper pavilion[underside] and steeper crown angles, both characteristics unique to Antique cut diamonds.

Even though modern Cushion cut diamonds are technically more brilliant and have larger face size relative to carat weight, certain buyers are drawn to the charm and distinctive look of the older Antique cut.
