The cushion cut inhabits a land of it's own as far as diamond shapes are concerned. They are neither round, nor square. Rectangle or pear, and yet a brilliant cushion cut exhibits the best attributes of all of them. Their large facets and soft flowing corners atop a rectilinear framework of facets makes the brilliant cushion cut a sight to behold. Have no doubt. This is not your Aunt's diamond. This is not your Mother-in law's diamond. This is not your librarians diamond, or even your college room mates diamond. The brilliant cushion cut is your diamond. As unique, lively, expressive and captivating as you are.
