The cushion cut diamond has 64 facets and was originally called a ‘mine cut’ or ‘pillow cut’. Originating in Brazil in the 19th century, the cushion cut has become a popular shape, especially for large glamorous diamond ring settings.

Diamond cuts have changed over the years and some ladies choose to customise the facets in their cushion cut engagement rings. At Diamond Exchange you can choose your ideal cushion cut diamond and place it in the exact right setting - either from the comfort of your couch or in the luxury of our nearest showroom.
