Oo. Keep the cushion. It’s much prettier, IMO.

I like the cushion, but it depends on what you want to do/ how much you want to spend or save.

I love cushion cuts and am not a fan of the emerald cut, so I guess I’m not much help :/ I personally think the ring’s look would be changed if you were to use an emerald cut. Also, I think you should love your ring, and if you aren’t a fan of emerald cuts (even if you don’t hate them) you might not end up loving your ring down the road. Go for the cut you love the most, even if it means going down a little in size to save money.

Although I do love your choice of aquamarine (March baby here :p)!!

I heard something quoted a while back that I think speaks volumes of truth:

“A deal is only a deal if you are getting exactly what you want.”

Food for thought!! 😉

I have an emerald cut diamond, but for an aquamarine, I would totally go with a cushion cut. So much prettier!! That ring is beautiful, and I don’t think it would be as pretty with an emerald cut gem.

I agree with littlemissmango. If you get a shape you dont want is it really worth the deal?

I come from a family of jewelers and thought i would give my input– I love cushion cut stones, i actually was hoping to get one myself. I also, ironically love the look of an emerald cut, but what i came to find out was that unless you have an extremely good quality stone that is cut very well it does not have the shine and radience of the other cuts. When it is done right, and has a good color and grade, the emerald is breathtaking, buttt if there are any concerns It is most definately a safer bet to go with the cushion. I am not completely sure in terms of aquamarine, but i do have a 2ct blue cushion cut topaz in a pendant and it is so brillant and sparkely it almost looks fake. I can only imagine how gorgeous it would be in a ring.

Also I totally second Littlemissmango! Great, great way to put it!

Yay 🙂 I also think it will look much better as a cushion shape-wise, and that if the emerald is cheaper, it won’t be better quality/look as good as the cushion will (because of what Stormala pointed out).

I would check out this link for some good colored stone vendors and shop around. Good luck!

I have a  1 ct  trillion cut Aquamarine  and it doesn’t shine at all.   I have a 3.5 ct Aquamarine in the emeral cut and I am often asked if it is a diamond because like all good aquas it is light in color and it is hard to tell it’s blue until I point it out.    I vote Emerald  cut.
