    @blondemotives:  If the cushion’s measurements are larger then why would it face up smaller? Usually cushions face up smaller for their weight because they tend to be deeper.

    I voted for the cushion because I hate princess cuts and the cut on the cushion is better.

    Where are you finding an Ideal Cut cushion? GIA certs them as excellent…as far as I’m aware, Ideal is only for round brilliants

    Do you have a pic of the cushion, since they come is so many different shapes.  If it’s squarish, then I say keep the princess!  I don’t why so many people don’t like the princess shape (at least on here).  I think they are stunning, and I loved the one I lost.  I assume you’re looking for a more rounded cushion?  Your princess cut is jaw dropping!!

    @bkrocks13:  Maybe it is based upon proportions.  My oval is GIA certified and it was listed as ideal cut on JA website (not by GIA though,) based upon its proportions.

    OP, I would suggest an antique cushion if you like chunky facets. Modern cushions vary widely and some have the crushed ice look, which sounds like something you don’t want.

    My finger is much bigger than yours(7.25), but I thought I would post my cushion anyway because of the facets. It’s a 1.01ct, 6.21×5.84×4.02, VS1, H.
