A Cushion cut diamond is a squared shape known for its pillow-like appearance. Its unique form is accentuated in a Halo engagement ring setting. Cushion cut Halo engagement rings also have a vintage appeal that’s perfect for those wanting an heirloom-inspired look. And the addition of melee diamonds often makes it appear larger on the finger.
A Cushion cut Solitaire engagement ring highlights this modern-with-a-vintage-twist shape in a design that will stand the test of time. The soft curves of the Cushion are spotlighted to perfection in a Classic or Signature Solitaire settings, making these particular looks sought after time and time again.
Although a modern shape, Cushion cut diamonds already have a vintage look and feel. When highlighted in vintage-inspired settings, they become instant family heirlooms. Try Art Deco favorites like the Halo or Bezel, or feature a Cushion cut diamond in a Duet, Signature V, or Hover setting for an heirloom look you’ll adore.
With various side stones to choose from, a Three Stone Cushion cut engagement ring helps you create a look as unique as your love story. Choose Round or Pear side stones for more classic or romantic style, and Trillion or Tapered Baguette side stones for modern appeal.

Choosing between a Cushion or Round Brilliant engagement ring is not simply choosing between a round or square shape. Each diamond creates a unique look, so it’s important to consider how they would pair with your own style.
A Round Brilliant engagement ring is considered to be classic and timeless. A Cushion cut engagement ring, although featuring a modern shape, has a vintage-inspired, heirloom look. Think about your existing fine jewelry collection as well as your daily look before choosing.
Choosing a Cushion cut engagement ring means that you likely have vintage-inspired style. Although similar to the timeless Round Brilliant cut diamond, a Cushion’s pillow-like appearance gives it instant historical appeal. Those who select the Cushion are drawn to its soft beauty and heirloom-like style.
Although both shapes are squared, a Cushion’s edges and corners are rounded, which is what gives it its pillowy look and name. A Princess is a true square with straight edges and pointed corners. The Cushion tends to look more vintage-inspired or traditional, whereas the Princess looks more modern. Both feature brilliant-cut facets.
