Eighty percent of diamonds sold today are round cut, the shape that was popularized by jewelers in the early 20th century. But the classic cushion cut diamond — square with rounded edges — has been around for almost 200 years and some of the world's most famous rocks, including the Hope Diamond and the Regent Diamond, are cushion cut. And now this glamorous shape is making a comeback, especially among those who stay ahead of the fashion curve. Thanks to our diamond alternative — DiamondAura® — this much sought-after cut is incredibly affordable.
The Revenir is an ample 4-carat lab-created DiamondAura stone in a perfect cushion cut, with an additional carat of smaller DiamondAura rounds set around the centerpiece stone in a sterling silver ring. The larger facets of the cushion cut mark this out as an undeniable classic, guaranteed to stand out in a crowd of rounds.
Buying a similar ring with a mined diamond from an antique dealer will cost you in the region of five or six figures, and inevitably comes with inclusions, wear and tear, and a cushion cut that was performed without modern techniques. But, thanks to the precision of the process used to create the Revenir's DiamondAura, this stone possesses superior clarity and a precision cushion cut, maximizing fire without sacrificing the time-tested deign.
Best of all, it comes at a price that puts 5-total carats of classic luxury within realistic reach, so now's the time to get ahead of the fashion curve and embrace the rounded edges of the cushion cut.
