Diamond Cut

Cushion cut diamonds, also referred to as "pillow-cut" diamonds, were the most popular shape over a century ago. The cushion-cut is an antique style of cut, and it is known for having a deep cut with large facets. These large facets are what bring out the sparkle and brilliance when the diamond is exposed to light. If you were to compare cushion cut diamonds to other shapes, they would be most similar to oval cut diamonds. They have rounded corners and can vary in their overall width and length.

Each diamond purchased from the DoW Signature Cushion Collection™ is accompanied by:

The sparkle of a diamond is often called "fire" because colorful bursts of light that are refracted from the many facets. In a well-cut diamond, the light entering the stone bounces from one facet to another and emerges through the top of the stone.

To maximize brilliance, both a skilled master diamond cutter and meticulously planned and perfectly proportioned cuts produce the highest cut diamonds of exceptional fire and value. As much as 63% of the uncut diamond can be lost during this process.

At DoW we think it is worth it to lose rough diamond material to maximize the beauty of the diamond. With 63% of a rough diamond being cut away, there is no margin for error; the slightest miscalculation may make the difference between DoW Signature Cushion Cut diamond and a Very Good Cut diamond.
