Cushion Cut Diamonds!


Hello to all of jewelristas around the world

As I have mentioned before, on my instagram page there are different chapters going on, so far I have covered "The Blues" which you can see all the photos and videos in my last post "Fancy A Blue? I Do", "Diamond Necklaces", "The Yellows" and now I have finished the "Cushion Cut" chapter. You can find all the Cushion Cut Diamond photos in instagram by searching the #CushionCrush

I really enjoy having chapters and focus on one element of a jewelry which enables us to see, learn, compare and get inspiration from the varieties that are out there considering that single factor which in this instance is the cut. 

Cushion cut diamond is a four sided deep square or rectangle cut with rounded corners and a large face and it has a cushion shaped girdle. The cut is usually multi-faceted to give the highest possible light refraction therefor the properly cut cushion cut diamonds have an enormous scintillation, sparkle, fire and brilliance.

as of 2009 GIA and AGSL have attempted to clarify and reorganize the naming of cushion cut diamonds to leave less room for misinterpretation and inconsistency. As per below table you can see the different cuts that are available for cushion cut diamonds as well as the definition:

You can read more about the variety of cushion cut diamonds at PriceScope.com

The biggest cushion cut diamond that has ever been found is 218ct D Flawless and it took Cora International master cutters 2 years of planning, cutting and polishing to create the world's biggest cushion cut out of rough.

Enough with talking, let the photos and several stunning videos fill your day with sparkle, fire, scintillation and brilliance!
