Legacy of Cushion-Cut Diamonds: Taking a Look Back in Time


Do you know the currently-trending cushion cut has been around since the 19th century? As per many famous historians, the evidence of the existence of cushion-cut (old mine cut, back then) can be seen in famous literature and artwork of the 1700s. This particular style of diamond was considered the height of fashion during the late 1800s. Hence, any diamond buyer looking for antique or vintage style diamond rings, always go for Rare Carat cushion cut natural and lab grown loose diamonds for their ring settings of choice. When you shop from Rare Carat, you have the facility to opt for their 90-Day free resizing after-sale service to ensure your ring fits perfectly and comfortably.

The cut style was established and perfected to ensure most of the diamond's weight upon cutting is retained. For this reason, this style was the standard cut for diamonds and all gemstones during the early 1800s as the brilliant, crystal-like diamond shape was popular back then. Because of the updated method to attain this style, a perfect-looking cushion-cut diamond will have a small table, a high crown, and a square shape.
