Basics of Diamond Cuts

Our master goldsmiths and diamond experts at Impress Jewelry Creations work with a variety of diamond cuts, each uniquely brilliant in its own way. The cut of a diamond is the key determinant of its sparkle and can truly bring your custom jewelry piece to life.

History of Cushion Cut Diamonds

Cushion-cut diamonds hold a rich and fascinating history. Popular for centuries, this classic cut has graced the hands of royalty and stars, contributing to its lasting allure. The cushion cut, with its softened square or rectangular shape, has evolved over time, yet its vintage charm and timeless elegance remain unchanged.

Characteristics of Cushion Cut Diamonds

A cushion-cut diamond, often fondly known as the "pillow cut," features rounded corners and large facets, which heighten its brilliance and fire. Its unique faceting pattern differentiates it from other diamond cuts, offering a distinctive sparkle that's both romantic and extravagant.

The Brilliance and Fire of Cushion Cut Diamonds

The brilliance of a diamond refers to the light reflected from within the diamond, while fire represents the dispersion of light into the colors of the spectrum. The cushion cut, with its large facets, enhances these qualities, rendering an exceptional light show that is both enchanting and breathtaking.

Pros and Cons of Cushion Cut Diamonds

Choosing a cushion cut diamond for your designer brand jewelry piece offers several benefits. Its vintage charm, combined with modern cutting techniques, creates a cut that is truly unique and versatile. However, due to its large facets, inclusions may be slightly more visible in a cushion-cut diamond, emphasizing the importance of selecting a high-clarity stone.
