Romantic Cushion Cut Engagement Rings for Every Type of Special Someone

The cushion cut is a variation of the square cut with rounded corners. Cushion cuts look similar to pillow cuts, giving them their name. Though less brilliant than round diamonds, they have better fire, making them popular choices for diamond engagement rings. Cushion diamonds can be incorporated into classic or contemporary ring styles. The versatility of this diamond cut makes it a popular choice. Cushion engagement ring styles range from rose gold cushion cut engagement rings to halo engagement rings.

Just check out the different styles, all set with cushion diamonds, below.
