Story

Although the cushion cut diamond found its niche around 1830 until the early 1900s, it has once again emerged as a popular cut. With its unique appearance of having a square or rectangular shape with rounded corners, the facets are larger and consequently create more brilliance and accentuate the clarity of the gem. Having a greater depth and a softer countenance than its modern companions do, it will retain its classic style for centuries to come.

A beautiful cushion cut diamond of .65 carats (color G-H, clarity SI1) reads as though it were a one carat stone as it is a flatter, thinner and wider stone. Consequently you have the look while keeping the pocketbook content. Mounted in an open claw flower setting of 18k yellow gold, it appears to float effortlessly above the finger.

Rich black enamel extending from the shoulder and covering each side blankets the band as ornate F clef-like swirls form a garland of golden decoration within an engraved cartouche. The black enamel perfectly compliments the whiteness of the diamond set within the glow of yellow gold.
