Antique cushion cut diamond engagement rings will showcase a center diamond cut in a time to properly maximize the reflection of candlelight. In comparison to modern cushions, antiques will have a smaller table (flat top facet), larger facets and lager culet (bottom facet). The larger facets were arranged to maximize light refraction, inner fire and scintillation of a diamond when viewed by candlelight. Here are some of the antique cushion cut engagement rings that Mark Broumand has selected for his collection of antique cut diamond rings.
The exquisite 1.50ct cushion set in the center is white and completely eye clean, GIA certified at H-VS1. The faceting on this one-and-a-half carat center stone gives this diamond phenomenal fire. The unique diamond is set in a split shank platinum setting. There is a halo of micropavé set round diamonds around the center stone and a split shank coming off the halo meeting in a single band of micropavé stones.
This ring features a mesmerizing 2.01ct antique cushion brilliant that is poised in the center. It is GIA certified at H-SI1. The stone is white, perfectly eye clean, with immense fire. The cut of this antique cushion cut is phenomenal. It is accented by round brilliant s in a shared prong setting design in a halo set around it and down the shank. The ring is made in high polish 18k white gold.
The gorgeous 1.21ct antique cushion brilliant set in the center is GIA certified at H-VS2. It is white, very clear and fiery. The halo of round brilliants set around it accents it beautifully in a pavé setting featuring milgrain detail. The step-cut trapezoids feature a row of round diamonds around them as well. The shank is pavé set with round diamonds on all three sides. The center basket has a beautiful filigree design, studded with a round diamond as well as round diamonds pavé set on the connectors. This piece is not only beautiful, but also a great value.
Antique cushion diamond engagement rings use modern technology to recreate a romantic, vintage era gem. Many love the warm, inner fire and larger, chunky facets that this diamond ring possesses. Mark Broumand also has an impressive selection of old European antique round cut diamond engagement rings which precede the modern day round brilliant diamond.
