The cushion shape is an antique design that evokes the glamour of the 1920s. Charming and opulent, its rounded shape is similar to a round, but more distinctive. The shape was often referred to as the Pillow Cut due to its slightly rounded sides. Cushion cut stones are romantic, elegant and luxurious.
The Marquise cut
The Marquise cut is another adaptation of the 58 faceted round brilliant cut. This shape complements long slender fingers particularly well. The crown is modified in the marquise to form what is called a “French Tip”, where the bezel facet at the point of the stone is eliminated. Marquise cut stones have an elongated shape with pointed ends supposedly inspired by the smile of the Marquise de Pompadour and commissioned by the Sun King, France’s Louis XIV.
