Searching for Cushion Cut Diamond Rings in Dublin
Information for Beginners

If It’s Your First Time Shopping For A Diamond Ring

and your loved one has specified that they want a cushion cut ring, chances are you might be at a loss as to what that is and why they want it. So here’s a bit of information about cushion cut rings.
A cushion cut gem is essentially a gem in the shape of a square with rounded corners. Some say it resembles a pillow shape, hence the name “cushion cut”. It also tends to have larger facets than a rounded cut does, making it appear larger when looked at from the top. On the other hand, cushion cut diamonds will sparkle less than round cut diamonds do. This is one of a few reasons why cushion cut rings are generally less expensive. It’s also why it was less popular for a while. The cushion cut style has actually existed for about two centuries.
Cushion cut diamonds are also a somewhat easier shape to craft, which means less time is needed to produce them, consequentially lowering the diamond’s labor costs, which lowers the overall expense of the diamond.

Making Things Slightly More Confusing

is the fact that people make two other distinctions within in the cushion cut category that refers more specifically to the look of the ring. One of those is “crushed ice” cushion, which has facets (sides of the gem) seemingly organized in no particular order. The “chunky” cushion, meanwhile, has facets that line up with one another, usually meeting and forming the shape of an “X” in the middle. Neither of these styles is superior to the other. Personal preference is the deciding factor when it comes to whether you should get a “chunky” cushion cut ring or a “crushed ice” cushion cut ring. And anyhow, you might have a harder time differentiating between the two once they’re mounted in a ring. But the jeweler will let you know which is which.
Obviously, lots of other things will come into play when choosing a cushion cut diamond ring, such as the “4 C’s” (color, cut, clarity and carat size), the certification for the ring (which acts as insurance; get GIA certification if possible), what the diamond looks like in person, what setting the diamond is placed in, and what your budget is. A reputable jeweler will help you out with all of these in order to get you the best possible diamond you can afford. Just be sure to do your research on jewelers in your area so that you know you’re working with a trustworthy company and experienced staff that will be ready to help you find what you want in a cushion cut diamond.
