grapefruitlove:  Hello.  I always loved princess cut or even emerald cut, but once I saw cushion cut I forgot princess and emerald. Cushion has many more facets which then has more sparkle.  Now, you have a radiant cut, which has even more facets than cushion.  Its funny that I read this tonight because I was trying on rings today. My bf was looking at radiant stones, which I always really liked, but when I put on this cushion cut with a halo of diamonds down the shank, I knew it was it.  The radiant was a H VS2 2ct and it was loose so putting in a setting I really couldn’t get it. Plus, I always like colorless diamonds your D-F color, which the cushion was a D in color and VS2 clarity.  When you look at any two stones or rings try to have them close to the same color. It is all in ones preference but a yellow hue or colorless (white), I will go with the later all the time.  And try on all different settings. The setting has a big role in this, high setting, wide band, halo, double shank with high mount.  So so many to choose, but you know when it is it, the smile doesn’t go away. Hope I helped and not confused you.

I have a cushion cut ring and I adore it. I dont like hard angles and I enjoy the vintage-look of it. It sparkles like mad too; I get at least 3 comments a day on it.

Personally, I am a huge fan of the cussion cut. I like that it is an inbetween the princess cut and a round cut. I think that the princess cut is a bit too sharp looking. However, if you want a bigger gem, I recomend going with a round cut and putting it in a cushion cut setting. A .5 ct cushion will look smaller than a .5ct round just because of the way it is cut. If you put it in a cushion cut setting then it will give the allusion that the gem is also a cushion cut. Hope some of that helps!
