How To Tell If Cushion Cut Diamonds Are Real

Here are the quality characteristics of cushion cut diamonds that you should watch out for that make them a good choice for a fine piece of jewelry:

  • Clarity

The brilliance and sparkle of a cushion-cut diamond will determine how clear the diamond looks.  The “crushed ice” look from the two types of cushion cut diamonds is preferred because they tend to hide inclusions better.  This will result in a more sparkling diamond.

Choose cushion cut diamonds in Dallas that have clarity grades above SI1 or SI2 because clarity grades below these will likely exhibit obvious inclusions.  The safest grade where you can get the best deal is to stick to the SI2 or SI1 clarity.

You can visually inspect the diamond. Larger stones may show small inclusions that are not obvious, but still visible to the naked eye.  We offer only cushion-cut diamonds in the Eye Clean grade that will be double-checked by our diamond experts to make sure that you get the clarity grade that you expect and deserve.

  • Color

Cushion cut engagement diamonds have generally a lower brilliance than round-cut diamonds.  Hence, the best color grades for cushion cuts are that above G or H where the diamond looks colorless to the naked eye.  Make sure you get cushion-cut diamonds not lower than these grades.  This will ensure that yellow tints will not be visible on your diamond.

  • Cut

Cut and polished diamonds - Wholesale diamonds tx What is the best cut for a cushion diamond?  There are no definitive rules as to the ideal cut of cushion diamonds.

Most cushion diamonds, though, have a table whose length is around 55-60% of the girdle and a depth of about 60%.

Consider this rule of thumb when purchasing diamonds: avoid diamonds that are too shallow or too deep, and try to get a stone whose table and depth ratios do not go over 70%.

As a trusted diamond dealer, we offer cushion-cut diamonds with the “ideal” cut that gives the diamond the most sparkle.

Here’s how our cushion cut diamonds are ideally cut:

  • Table: 58-66%
  • Depth: 62-68%
  • Culet: None
  • Girdle: Very thin to Slightly Thick
  • Light/Dark Contrast: Even
