I really think a round center stone would look best.

i love cushion cut as well. I’ve seen a bunch of cushions with halos, and it looks amazing. I like it much more than the round cut actually. i feel the round somehow looks more modern?  I think it’d look great, and a lot more unique!

I would be worried that the cushion cut might leave space between the centre stone and the halo?  I’d have to try it out first before buying it for sure.

I tried building it in Blue Nile design your ring to see what it looked like and it wouldn’t let me ๐Ÿ™ However IF a jeweller says it is possible and it is what you want go for it ๐Ÿ™‚ (AND show us pics :))

I think it would look great with a cushion. Ask your jeweler about if there is going to be any spaces between the center stone and the halo. They can probably help you choose a stone that will look right in the setting.

BE CAREFUL – I put a cushion cut diamond into a setting designed for a round stone. Although I had a jeweler set my ring (obviously) – he did not take that into consideration. My center stone fell out 2 months after I got engaged and almost lost forever (it’s insured but it still took us about 16 hours to find the stone!!). The new jeweler we took it to said that the prongs made for a round stone cannot always support other cuts, including my cushion, and that a lot of jewelers don’t realize this…. we had to get new prongs put in, and with the price of gold these days, all of the repairs neared close to $1000. Not that it’s not possible but just be really careful putting another cut into a setting designed for a round stone!

 

Edit: I didn’t mean to scare you – because it can definitely be done, and isn’t always a problem. I realized that my post seems a little dramatic. Just — make sure to check in with the store/jeweler to make sure it’ll be OK!

@gjj424: no, I agree. Some settings can only hold certain cuts of stones.

I have a cushion cut stone in a square halo. I originally wanted a round stone in a square halo. Truthfully, it is not that big of a difference. When I look at the original ring I loved and mine, they are both very similar. Some cushions are so rounded they look round! No matter what you pick, it will be beautiful in that setting, promise!

I vote round. I think a cushion in that mount will be awkward, not unique.  Like setting a princess with the points out

I agree with PP. RB stone is the way to go! Please keep in mind that a RB outsparkles a cushion cut as it has more facets.

Cushions are by far my fav shape, but since you aleady bought the mount, I would go with the round.  A cushion in a round hole is not going to fit as well, and will look a bit out of place.
