Detailed Information

Cushion

Cushion cuts were at the height of their popularity during most of the nineteenth century. The basis for the cushion-cut is the Old Mine Cut, a square cut with rounded corners, a high crown, smallish table and large facets. The modern cushion cut has a square shape consisting of 64 facets which are placed in an angle to maximize depth of the gemstone (note the difference with the modern brilliant cut, which maximizes the reflection of light towards the eye).
