A Note On Our Name

The cushion cut diamond has been popular for more than a century. It is referred to as the pillow-cut or candle-cut due to its soft appearance and glow, but don’t be fooled—due to the large open facets, only stones of the highest clarity and color can be cushion cut.  Romantic and traditional, it is experiencing a resurgence in popularity, but it is still a rare find among all but the best diamond retailers. It is more color dispersive than other cuts, refracting white light into spectral colors. Its classic look definitely stands out from the crowd of round brilliants. The sparkle and brilliance of the cushion has more to do with the skill of the cutter in fashioning the facets than it does with the choice of facet patterns.
