has anyone ever seen a cushion cut look like broken glass? ive seen quite a few ladies with cushion cuts that look like broken glass… is it supposed to look that way or is it just maybe that these ladies had bad cut diamonds?
can you post your cushions to see some examples also please

I think a “crushed ice” cushion is a look some people go for, rather than geometric faceted like an Ring Bearer, Princess, emerald or step cut.

Cushion Modified Brillants are often criticized for having that “crushed ice look” but I actually LOVE that look.

There are different styles of cushions.

Here’s my cushion modified brilliant that is well cut. It’s not faceted like a Ring Bearer, but still not a crushed ice look. It gives off large flashes of light/color in the sun rather than the pinpoint flashes that a poorly cut cushion does.

The different looks for cushion cuts are really subjective. I personally don’t care for the crushed ice look so I went with an antique-style cushion cut with chunky facets and I loooove it. Here’s a close up

As others have said the modified brilliant cushion can appear similar to “crushed ice”. For some this is desirable while others prefer the more vintage, faceted, type of stone. Check out Good Old Gold’s website as they have many tutorials about the different stone types (and I believe have videos to go with). I know I spent a lot of time checking them out before I decided what I watned. Here is a picture of my ring.
