The Cushion cut (also known as the pillow cut) was first cut back in the 1900's. The cushion cut stone has a nice window with rounded faced corners. This cut was originally created for diamonds to catch light under the dimmest of lights, including candle light. Today the cushion cut is the most sought after cuts used in engagement rings. My Faux Diamond offers a large collection of engagement and wedding rings with the cushion cut stone!
