@NYCkindaBee:  I dont think a 1.5 is too big- my fingers arent that small, but my stone is a 1.65 and faces up about the same as a 1.3ct brilliant so people often think its lesser weight than it is. Cushions are traditionally more “chunky” cut and carry more weight in the girdle, even when they are well-cut, so I wouldn’t worry about it looking too big.  My 1.65 is 6.7×6.5mm for reference.

i’m not a size 3 (more like a 5.5) but i have an elongated cushion so thought i would post for you to see. my stone is 1.72 carats and the dimensions are 7.69×6.49×4.5, which makes the L/W ratio 1.18. the table is 66%. i also have the modified cushion brilliant which gives more of the “crushed ice” look rather than the chunkier antique style cushions (which i really love!). sorry if this is picture overload, but i know when FI and I were looking i wanted to see as many “hand shots” as possible!

I am a 3.5 and have a 1ct modified square brilliant cut, which faces about the same size as a cushion.

@NYCkindaBee: 

Here is my 1.51 cushion on 4.25. Mine is a little bit different of a facet structure (it doesn’t have the 3rd layer of facets meaning its a bit more “chunky”) than the traditional modified cuts.

@NYCkindaBee:  How exciting that you and FI are ring shopping!  Congratulations 🙂  

I’m slightly bigger than you (size 4.25).  Here is my ring.  It is a 1.3 carat cushion modified brilliant.  The measurements are 6.43 x 6.14 x 4.15 mm.  The table is 64%.  Hope this helps!

@NYCkindaBee:  Thank you!! It still is a modified brilliant, but a bit of a different plot than the others out there (pic of mine below). The most common cushion plot will have a third layer of facets, which contributes to the “crushed ice” look. My ratio of Length to Width is pretty much even, so its almost a perfect square cushion.

@NYCkindaBee:  Thank you, I appreciate the compliment! And just FYI my stone has the same faceting pattern as ylapis’ stone (or as far as I can tell from my GIA report and the image she posted I think it does). As for the watch, it’s just a plain ol’ heart rate monitor, I’m not quite hardcore enough to need a Garmin, but they are neat!

@NYCkindaBee: i love love love the antique look of the older cushions, totally go for it if you can find a stone you like. my FI and I were looking at Garmin watches the other day at a race expo, they are expensive! 

as far at the ratios… yes, what you find attractive or pleasing to the eye is entirely up to you. FI and I wanted a more rectangular stone because my fingers are somewhat short so we wanted a stone to elongate my finger. the square cushions made my fingers look shorter and stumpy, as did round stones. my best advice to you is to try to pick out a stone in person or get as many images from the sources as you can… cushions are funny in that they can look great on paper and have poor performance in real life. a great website for more resources on picking a stone is pricescope.com. I learned a TON there!
