How many facets does a cushion cut diamond have?

A “Cushion Cut Diamond” is squarish – rectangular in shape with rounded corners and 58 brilliant-style facets that kind of resembles a pillow in shape, hence the name… Cushion cut diamonds were developed about a hundred years ago when diamonds were ground down to the desired shape instead of being cleaved or sawn by laser and thus older cushion cut diamonds were lumpy and thick which resulted in blocky patterns of light return which were more or less unimpressive. As with most diamond shapes, the modern cushion cut diamond has benefited substantially from advancements in diamond cutting and design. The modern cushion cut diamond is extremely lively and exhibits a high degree of light return.

When buying a cushion cut diamond, is it best to get as close to a perfect square as possible?

working with a 5K budget including the setting …. got priced for this diamond below for about 3500 & setting costs about 2K

Carat : 1.06
Clarity : VS1
Color : H

GIA Specifications
Measurements : 6 x 5.5 x 3.76
Depth : 68.4
Table : 63%
Polish : Very good
Symmetry : Very good
Fluorescence : Faint

No, you don’t want to get as close to a perfect square if you want a cushion cut. Cushion cut diamonds are not perfectly square. The diamond sounds good. Good luck!

Is $10000 for a 1.5c round cut diamond ring too much?

here are the details:

Round Brilliant
GIA
1.51 carat
G color
SI1 clarity
cut grade/polish/symmetry: Very Good
Fluorescence: None

Note: I saw the diagram of the flaws on the diamond on the certificate itself and it only had a few feathers. No clouds or other junk. Jeweler says it could pass as VS2.

The stone and a custom setting for $10000. No band. Is this a good price? Please help. Thank you

Seems reasonable. Use bluenile.com to compare. Similar diamond can be had for about $9500.

Any experts out there know if this is a good price without seeing it?

It’s not a ridiculously high price, if that’s what you’re asking. Maybe a smidge high, but not horrid – I’d say average. But it’s a pretty average quality stone, so go figure. It’s not going to be the prettiest diamond….
