No foolin'

Even with all of the amazing qualities of the brilliant cushion cut diamond we have already mentioned, the most unbelievable one is that pound for pound (or carat for carat) a brilliant cushion cut diamond costs on average 30-40% less than a round diamond of equal size and quality. So depending on which way you look at it, you can either come home with a brilliant cushion cut diamond 40% larger than what you had hoped for, or leave your local jewelry store with your piggy bank still nearly half full.

Which ever you choose, the brilliant cushion cut is a brilliant alternative.
