As we all know, when shopping for engagement rings, there are many options to consider.  The search should be a fun and memorable experience but at times, it can get a little overwhelming!  Don’t let that discourage you; I’m here to help. With that said, let’s talk about the ever so popular cushion cut diamond engagement ring!

Popular in the 19th century, the cushion cut has made quite the comeback, quickly becoming one of the more talked about cuts around.  It’s defined by its elegant square cut diamond and round corners, and the process by which its cut emphasizes the brilliance of the gem.  It’s no big wonder why this gorgeous stone is so highly sought after.  Despite its wide popularity, you can still manage to find a cushion cut design that embodies your style.

One style that is quite popular with brides-to-be is the halo cushion cut.  The center stone is encircled by a group of smaller diamonds, subtly enhancing the beauty and brilliance of it.  Natalie K. offers a variety of cushion cut halo engagement rings, ranging from modern to vintage inspired.  If that isn’t enough, Natalie K is a Forevermark Partner.  Learn more here.

If you love the look of the cushion cut diamond, but want a more personalized unique experience, Danhov is a fantastic choice.  Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted every time with conflict-free diamonds and handmade through an eco-friendly process.  Also, no molds are used, ensuring the one-of-a-kind nature of your diamond ring!

I’ve also seen many ladies with colored diamonds.  This is such a lovely and unique option!  Uneek has a large selection of rare and breathtaking fancy colored cushion cut diamonds.  This Los Angeles based, award winning company prides itself on the detailed craftsmanship and dedication that is put into the creation of each ring.  If the price tag on some of these pieces seems a little intimidating…don’t worry!  They have a Silhouette line of affordable rings that are sure to be the perfect home for your engagement stone.
