The cushion cut is sometimes known as a pillow cut. It has an open culet (the area at the bottom of the gem) and is either rectangular or square in form with rounded corners. The manner in which the facets are cut has the viewer focusing into the gemstone…concentrating on its depth.
This romantic platinum ring circa 1980 features a cushion cut pink topaz of 3.2 carats. Very feminine in color and design, the gem is placed in a platinum bezel.
A surround of fourteen single cut diamonds, total weight of .35 carats (H-I color; VS2-SI3 clarity) frame the main gem with glitter and gleam. Undulating curves hug the perimeter with a scalloped profile.
Split shoulders, an open work under gallery and a slender shank add detail to this classic halo ring.
