Cushion is one of the most coveted cuts in diamonds at this point. What used to be in the grasp of the likes of round and princess cuts is slowly slipping away to fancier cuts, and as of now, cushion cut is taking the lead in ushering the era of fancy cut diamonds.

How closely it resembles either of the cuts or none depends largely on the setting of the stone. Delicate, but hard to miss, the cushion cut diamond inspires some of the finest rings to be ever sold in the market. Rounded off for you in the article are 5 of the most coveted cushion cut diamond rings.

Because of the perfect round of a six-prong setting, it is hard to tell if the stone is another but a round cut. Four of the prongs join the stone on the rounded apexes while the middle two brace the stone from the middle giving it a rounded look.
