The cushion cut diamond measures 5.74 x 5.41 x 3.40 mm so it has a length-to-width ratio of 1.06. Cushion cut diamonds come in various shapes from those almost square (length to width ratio 1.05 or less) to very rectangular (ratio 1.30 or more) to everything in between. The classic pillow shape tends to have ratios in the 1.10 – 1.20 range. This cushion cut diamond has a 62.8% depth percentage and a 58% table percentage. For cushion-cut diamonds, we recommend a depth of 59-69% and table of 50-65% with smaller percentages generally producing bigger size for the carat weight and better cut.
The cushion cut diamond shape was one of the most popular cuts of diamonds of all time. From approximately 1830 to the turn of the century the cushion cut style was simply how diamonds were cut. The cushion cut diamond is a generic name for the Old Mine Cut, developed before the turn of the century. Older cushion shape diamonds return light in blocky patterns conversely modern cut diamonds return light in a needlelike pattern, usually with smaller culets. The sparkle, brilliance, and beauty of the cushion cut diamond has more to do with the proficiency of the cutter fashioning the facets than it does with the choice of one of three basic facet patterns. In the past ten years, there has been an increase in the popularity of the cushion cut diamond shape. Cushion shape diamonds are interestingly one of the most popular shapes for fancy colored diamonds because the shape displays the color evenly throughout the stone.
