Kanye West reportedly spent a cool $8 million to procure Kim Kardashian's eye-popping 15-carat cushion-cut diamond engagement ring (and 33rd birthday present). The D flawless type 2A rock (which jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz described as the "perfect cushion-cut diamond") is set in a pavé band so delicate it looks as though the diamond is floating on air.

For those of us with a more realistic budget, Kim's sophisticated sparkler is not necessarily out of reach. The solitaire cushion set in a twinkling band isn't a bad source of engagement ring inspiration.

Cartier Style 1895 Solitaire

There's a reason 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. Defined by their rounded corners and 58 brilliant-style facets that resemble a pillow shape, no two cushion-cut diamonds are exactly the same. While some rocks are a bit rounder, others tend to look more like a squareA growing number of celebrities have been seen sporting cushion-cut engagement rings lately, albeit sizable ones! Kim Kardashian is rocking a stylish 15-carat cushion-cut ring on an ultra-thin micro-pavé band, while Sofia Vergara calls her 8-carat cushion-cut sparkler "perfection."Cushion-cuts, once known as "old mine cuts," have been favored by brides-to-be ever since the 19th century. Only in recent years has this style soared back into the hearts of newly-engaged women. Aside from looking gorgeous in a variety of settings and metals, the cut's unique shape and rounded corners increase the facet size. In other words, get those sunglasses ready, because these stones are extra brilliant (read: blingy). Since it is an older style, cushion-cuts are pitch-perfect for a vintage-inspired setting (which, have also become really popular lately, especially with Hollywood's hottest celebs), but easily look right at home in a more contemporary halo. 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 Here, 41 of the prettiest cushion-cut engagement rings we could findStyle 1895, cushion-cut diamond engagement ring, price upon request, CartierSee more Cartier engagement rings
