My SO and I are looking at rings, and specifically 1 carat cushion cuts. I LOVE the cut, especially the hearts and arrows design carried by a couple jewlers. My only concern is how it will look on my size 7.5 finger. I know they face up smaller… but I want it to look appropriate for my hand, considering I wasn’t blessed with tiny fingers.
I would love to see some cushion cuts for reference.
Please state your carat weight and ring size

I love cushions! Here is my 1.5 carat on a size 5.25 ring (may be sizing it down to a 5). As for the facing up smaller…that’s definitely true. However, when Fiance and I were looking at round vs cushion diamonds, the rounds were more expensive than the cushions when comparing diamonds of the same size and quality. If you’re sticking to a certain budget, the cushion you can afford may actually face up around the same as the round you can afford. Just my $0.02. 🙂

Ok, I have size 7 fingers, I assume you want to see how it looks on the entire hand. This is an antique cushion, so the dimensions might vary somewhat – it has a steeper crown and smaller table. The photos are kind of dark, but they’re ok for proportion. 3.2 cts
I’d go to diamdb.com and use the tool there to compare sizes.

Mine is a 1.67 Daussi Cushion Cut Diamond. You should look into the Henri Daussi cushions as he cuts them different from other cushions as they are less “puffy” and instead more spread out, giving more finger coverage (kind of like an emerald cut with the facets). My stone measures: 8.81×7.17 which makes it look like more than 2 carats. It’s a size 5.5 in platinum.
