The Cushion Cut Diamond

The Cushion Cut Diamond


Having been around for more than 300 years, this is one of the oldest fancy diamond cuts available today. The cushion cut, was originally known as the mine cut and was popular between the early 1800s and early 1900s. The facets were arranged to sparkle in dim light, so that jewellery admired under candlelight had a sparkle as impressive as it looked in the day. The cushion cut engagement rings you see at Midas Jewellery today, feature gemstones using a combination of the old mine and brilliant cuts to produce an elegant and understated sparkle with elements inspired by antique treasures.
