Hi Bees! I am currently stuck on my ring selection. I have the choice between a round brilliant (RB) stone in a cushion halo or a cushion cut stone in a cushion halo. I love cushion cut! But it is more expensive, sparkles less, and the stone looks smaller in this cut. I’m not a huge fan of Round Brilliant for my ring but from what I’ve seen, Round Brilliant in cushion halos are so sparkly, you can barely tell the stone is a Round Brilliant instead of a cushion. Please Bees, share your rings with me! I want to see all cushion cut halos! Whether it’s a Round Brilliant or a cushion in a cushion halo. Please help! Thanks so much! Y’all are fantastic 🙂

This is my 0.5 ct cushion modified brilliant center. My center stone is slighly elongated, which is a look I love vs. perfectly square You just have to really look at cushions before buying one, as they have so much individual personality, it’s easy to get a dud if you just look on paper. Mine is SO sparkly, I love it! It’s an F color, VS1, ring size 6.

I have a cushion diamond in a cushion cut halo…I absolutely love it and it’s so sparkly, but this picture doesn’t do it justice. Center diamond is .53 carats and I’m a ring size 7. Hope this helps!

Sorry for the obnoxiously large photo. I always thought I had wanted a cushion cut wit halo but when we went ring shopping a Round Brilliant in a Cushion halo caught my eye. It sparkles so differently than a cushion cut in cushion halo! I compared both at the store and my mind was set on the Round Brilliant in cushion halo

rebeccaejv: I vote cushion coz that’s what I have 😉 I know people say they apparently don’t sparkle as much but I don’t believe that at all, seriously mine sparkles so much its practically blinding! I literally get comments about how sparkly it is.. I think it has a lot to do with the depth of the diamond etc.
Here’s mine! I love her, she’s perfect for me and exactly what i’d always dreamed of!
PS you’re right about RB’s in a cushion halo, i’ve seen some that were done so beautifully and it took me a minute to realise they were actually round! I think the key is having it set just right in the halo 🙂
