@blondee– i agree, once you actually spend some time looking at them all 🙂 But when you’re first starting your search and you didn’t know anything beyond round, princess, oval, and marquise existed its like “well this one is square-ish. wait so is this one. omg i’m so confused.” haha. or maybe that was just me!

I have a Tiffany Novo which is a cushion cut and you can’t beat a cushion cut’s sparkle!! I personally think they are very elegant and classy but I’m very biased 🙂

If you are in NYC or planning on going soon I without a doubt Reccommend the Diamond District. I was just there this weekend.. They have the MOST amazing selection and deals.. to give you an idea I had on a 5 stone 1 karat wedding band and they priced it at $950. I had it on in my local mall- the same ring for over 3 thousand.. Every store i went into had cushion cut. The best part is you can pick your setting and stone separately so they are absolutely PERFECT

I think a lot of times all those cuts look similar when they are in a four prong setting. I feel like in a lot of pix you can’t tell if the corners are round or square. When we went to look for my ring I never really looked around at too many shapes, but I knew I wanted a princess cut or a round center stone.

Here’s mine, it also was custom made. The diamond itself came from the diamond district in NYC and was a great price. Good luck with your search!

Another option for those who travel or in Texas: the Houston Diamond and Gem sale is next month- biggest sale in the country.
Supposedly there are some really great deals there.

I highly, highly recommend Mark T from engagementringsdirect.com. He is known as the “Cushion King” in the diamond circuit. He specializes in cushions cuts, and has some beautiful custom pieces that you can see on his site. You can read a lot about his work on pricescope, which is a great resource.
I love cushion cuts, here’s mine!

I can’t believe I didn’t see this thread! I love cushions and Fiance bought from an independent jeweler. The stone is a Daussi so it has a different look than a traditional cushion, although you will soon discover that there is a lot of variety when it comes to cushion cut diamonds. I recommend checking out pricescope.com which has a lot of advice on purchasing diamonds, what to look for etc. It is especially helpful when dealing with fancy shapes.
