I don’t know much about other diamond shapes in comparison because I didn’t look at many other shapes. I looked at a 1 carat round and honestly, I didn’t see much difference. To me, my 1.1 sqaure cushion looks bigger on my hand than the 1 carat round did.

There’s a handy size chart on this website

http://www.lumeradiamonds.com/diamond-education/diamond-carat-weight

WB wouldn’t let me upload the pdf but it’s about halfway down the page under “printable diamond size chart”. Cut obviously makes a difference but according to the chart, a 1.25ct round is 7.00 mm in diameter and a 1.25ct cushion is 6.00mm in diameter. Hope that helps!

From my experience it seems that cushions face up a bit bigger that a princess or radiant but smaller than a round, oval, or marquise.  I am sure your cushion is going to be fabulous.  How big are your fingers?  Please post pics when it is done so we can all admire it.

I believe what effects the “face up” factor in stones is how deep the cut is.  The shallower the cut the larger it looks.  But cushions have a tendency of being “chunky” and can look quite larger.  So I don’t think you should have any issue as long as its a great stone, which I don’t doubt is what you got.
