Celebrity weddings are usually talked about all over the world, with some of them even being aired on major global news channels and talk shows for so many months. From engagement to weddings, the cushion cut diamonds are the perfect example of what you should expect from the best rings. They have a sense of class to them that surely outshines a lot of the precious stones that people use from time to time. In terms of the design and the overall appearance, the cushion cut diamonds can be compared to the emerald cut diamonds, or the square cuts. The reason for this is because the cushion cut diamonds are specially designed to have a slightly rounded appearance though they are slightly softer along the edges. Therefore when you look at it for the first time, you will be able to take note of the fact that they pretty much look like a rectangle or even a square depending on the one that comes to your mind first. However, their corners are rather rounded off. When you want to get the best use out of the cushion cut diamonds, you can set them alone or you can use them together with other diamonds. Smaller diamonds can usually be added to the collection to accentuate the cushion cut diamonds, or you can simply prong them on their own. Whichever of these you decide to use depends on what you intend to achieve in the long run.Still on the design, the cushion cut diamonds usually have 60 facets, or faces. This comes from an ancient concept that was used to design these diamonds back in the day. They were spectacularly cut so that they would be able to give off the best sparkle in candlelight. Therefore when you come across a cushion cut diamond that has around 60 facets, you can be sure that it really is vintage. As a result of modifications here and there however, there are new age diamond cuts that have more facets than these, and because of this they are able to give off more sparkle. The ones that are designed today are also made in such a way that they have more color so that they can atone for their deficiency in the number of facets.
