cmm121:  hi, I think what you’re asking to see is really specific and you might have better luck if you ask what made ppl decide bw cushion and radiant rather than asking for such specific sizes. I have 1 ct cushion because I asked for a cushion and I had no vote on size.

So mine is a tad bigger, at 2.92ct, but is a rectangular cushion on a 3.5 finger.

Sorry if it’s a huge picture..

A radiant and cusion are very similar! The internal cut is the same the only difference is the cushion has rounded corners (which will be concealed by prongs anyway).

Both face up smaller than a Round Brilliant but check out diamdb.com it was my favorite site to try and imagine finger size although I will say the site doesnt do a real rock justice!!

Mine is a 2.1 round on a size 4 finger, so I would say that anywhere in that range would look quite substantial on your hand.

2.2ct equivalent cushion cut  moissanite on a 4.75 finger…although Id probably fit a 4.5 better. Excuse the band, I was trying on wedding bands!

leahsullyjohn:  well, it depends on the cut. 🙂 my cushion looks nothing like a radiant bc it is an antique cut-bigger, chunkier facets.

Like 

2ndchance:  I have an old cut too.  Mines an old cut diamond. The centre is 2.4ct but like many old cuts they are deep as they have a high pillowy crown instead of spread. My finger is 4.75

leahsullyjohn:  I have to say I highly disagree cushions and radiants are the “same” cut except for the corners. The cut of a cushion can vary a LOT. An antique cushion, or modern cut of an antique cushion like an August Vintage Cushion is dramatically different than a modified cushion brilliant, and certainly very different than a radiant.

OP – I have an antique cushion though it is smaller than you asked for (1.25ct). For me the choice was easy – I like antique cuts, do not like radiants or more modern “splintery” cushions. Ring size 5.

To me I think that 2ct would look like much on any size of finger, but on a tiny hand as yours, I wouldn’t go that big! Then again it’s just my opinion, I fell in love with smaller proportioned stone/finger look. 🙂
