57 Exquisite Cushion-Cut Engagement Rings

From timeless to modern, this famous cut is stunning in any setting

Vic Boncivini Photography

There are many reasons why cushion-cut engagement rings are so popular. Classic and versatile, a cushion-cut diamond looks just as good as a solitaire as it does set in a halo or three-stone setting. No two cushion-cut diamonds are exactly the same: While some rocks are a bit rounder, others tend to look more like a square and some can even come in an oval shape.

What Is the Cushion Cut?

The cushion cut is defined by its rounded corners and 58 brilliant-style facets that resemble a pillow shape. Once known as "old mine cuts," they have been favored by brides-to-be since the 19th century.

Only in recent years has this style soared back into the hearts of newly engaged women—Kim Kardashian’s 15-carat cushion-cut diamond engagement ring on a thin diamond pavé band from husband Kanye West may have spurred this resurgence. Talk about a mega-watt stunner.

Aside from looking gorgeous in a variety of settings and metals from antique to ultra-modern, the unique shape and rounded corners of cushion-cut stones increase the facet size which means a lot of sparkle. In other words, get those sunglasses ready, because these stones are extra brilliant or blingy.

Since it is an older style, cushion-cuts are pitch-perfect for a vintage-inspired setting (which, have also become really popular lately), but easily look right at home in a more contemporary setting like East-West, two stones, and double bands. The rounded edges undoubtedly make this style a softer one, so while this stone looks great in platinum or white gold, it can just as easily shine in a romantic rose-gold setting or mixed-metal ring.
