Of a cushion and a Round Brilliant of the same mm measurements, the cushion will face up larger. This is basically geometry (area of a circle vs. area of a square). Here’s an example on diamdb, but you could plug in numbers and play around with it: http://www.diamdb.com/compare/1ct-round-vs-1.39ct-cushion/

 

ETA: Oh and obviously it’s trickier with elongated cushions, but I assume you’re talking about moissies and those cushions are square.

angelpixxi:  same goes for princess cuts or square radiants, they will look bigger than a round of the same measurements because they are measured length by width and not from corner to corner.

For example both of these stones measure exactly 6mm, but the cushion looks larger.
