Cushion stones aren’t the most brilliant cut you can get (as in a round stone) but it will still be color graded w/ certain cut/clarity as well. It’s all in the 4Cs for each individual stone.

The general advice is cut matters more than color because cut will determine how the light bounces off the facets in the stone which can actually make a warmer stone look whiter.

I’d suggest you look at the two stones yourself, a J is a bit warm but warm diamonds can be totally lovely and buttery too so it’s all personal preference.

MsKnitter:  I agree.  I would recommend looking at them in person to know for sure what each will look like.  Like MsKnitter said, the cut is the most important part of the 4 c’s, as it will determine how the stone will reflect and refract light.

Yes, cushions DO show more color than round brillants!  Also, they face up smaller than other cuts too.  I have a 2.01 GIA “I” color with medium blue fluorescence.  While, MOST of the time it appears white, it DOES have warmth to it & I do notice it.  It doesn’t bother me & it allowed me to go with a slightly larger stone 😉  Even though it is a 2.01, it faces up more like a 1.5 compared to other cuts.  I was also considering a J color cushion & glad I went with an “I”. I think in a RB, J could work & I’ve seen some BEAUTIFUL, white J’s!!!  Just things to think about!  Hope that helps…

I agree to look at them side by side.  Your eyes will be able to tell you how much color each one has and if you like it.
