The Cushion Brilliant Cut


Be calm: you are brilliant

A diamond or gem’s sparkle is determined by the shape it’s cut into. Gems possess a flawless, crisp shine from its facets and how light travels through the stone. With flat, polished surfaces from within the gem, facets work as tiny mirrors, cut and arranged to maximise the diamond’s ability to draw in and reflect the light. This makes the gem more brilliant and sparkly than any other cuts and shapes. 

Welcome to the Cushion Brilliant Cut.

Love is a fine cushion to rest upon

Synonymous with royalty, the Cushion Cut combines a square or rectangle cut with rounded corners – just as a pillow. This has been a classic cut for the last two hundred years and one of the most popular engagement diamond shapes today.

Brilliance takes time

Designed for maximum sparkle and a style victory, Cushion Mix Statement Studs can be worn solo or clipped to MYJS Mix Charms.

The Cushion Cut dates back to the earliest diamond cuts, through the modern-day cushion was inspired by the Old Mine Cut of the 1700s. During the 18th century, Brazil was the world’s diamond mining capital to maximise the carats from the rougher Brazilian diamonds that took less time to execute the cut. The Hope Diamond stands out as the most valuable cushion cut diamond of all time.

Simplicity is the key to brilliance

While the Cushion is similar to the Round Brilliant and Princess, the Cushion Cut presents a high level of brilliance and fire for a vintage look and feel that combines classic fashion with modern flair.

As a cheaper cut than the Round, Cushion still looks elegant and understated all at once while retaining a high level of shine. The design of the artful facets allows more light to flow through the gem.

Diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds, zircon and man-made crystals feature Cushion Cut for all the style and dazzle. With the popularity of Round and Princess Cuts, the Cushion offers a more unique choice for flashing your gemstones where it’s all about a soft look with a lot of sparkle.

What is soft is strong
