Cushion Cut Diamond Engagement Rings

Updated on July 30, 2013

Beautiful Cushion Cut Diamond Engagement Rings

Cushion cut diamond engagement rings are a vintage look that has had a recent surge in popularity. The shape is also known as a pillow cut diamond, because of it's oval shape and rounded corners.

There are cushion cut diamond engagement rings available in many different settings. Any look that you love is probably available with this cut! When you are shopping for cushion cut diamonds, pay particular attention to the clarity of the stone. This shape has many more flat faces than other cuts, so imperfections in the diamond become more obvious.

Three-Stone Rings

Cushion cut diamond engagement rings with three stones are beautiful, and symbolize your past, present, and future together. There are are tons of different setting options in every metal. Try a ring pairing a cushion cut diamond center stone with round cut side stones for a different look.

As with the solitaire rings, the yellow and rose gold engagement rings shown here are available in all three colors of metal. So, if you love the setting but thing a more neutral white gold would be best, you can choose that option instead!

Halo Style Rings

Cushion Cut Diamonds Surrounded by a Halo of Accent Stones

The halo style of ring is a very popular look, where micropave diamonds surround the center stone. This can add size to the appearance of your diamond without dramatically increasing the cost. Halo settings can either feature a plain band or one with a unique pattern or diamond accents, which gives a more ornate look.

All six of these rings are available in platinum, yellow gold, and white gold, so choose the one that works best for your style and your budget.
