To this blog writer, the cushion cut diamond is the popular diamond shape today! Meghan Markle and the super-model Karlie Kloss both received cushion cut diamonds from Prince Harry and Josh Kushner. Cushion cut diamonds, though, have really been popular for decades. Antique cushion cut diamonds are square, or rectangular, in shape and are also known as "pillow-cuts,” since they have rounded corners and larger pavillion cut facets. Unlike today, during the 1900’s diamond cutters did not have the proper machinery to cut diamonds, so they left the pavillion facets large, giving them their antique look. Cushion cut diamonds were also popular during the famous Victorian and Art Deco eras. You could find them set in beautiful, soothing rose gold, but also set solo in beautiful Art Deco engagement rings with filigree engravings. Let’s take a look at some beautiful cushion cut diamond engagement rings that Karlie and Meghan would simply love!
