Cushion

The cushion cut is an old-new style. It has been around since the 1700s, back then, known as the miner-cut. For the first century of its existence, it was the most popular cut around. 

It had its comeback in the 1920s when refinements were made, becoming the modern brilliant cushion cut we know today.

Coveted for its distinctive square shape and brilliant facets, the cushion cut was a highly revered style in the 19th century and still remains popular today. If you are drawn to classy and refined styles, a cushion cut ring is the best match for you.
