DB and I have been looking at rings as of late and are debating between two shapes...I love both the cushion cut and RB, but he is a traditional guy and 100% prefers the RB. I noticed while ring shopping that you get a lot more "bang for your buck" with a cushion cut...we are looking at a 1.70 F/VS2 cushion for about the same price as a 1.52 RB F/VS2.

What would you ladies choose? It will be mounted on a simple platinum band. I would love a ring that stands the test of time and that I can upgrade easily to any wedding band.

TIA :flowers:

RB looks larger than a cushion in cases where all else is equal. cushions are gorgeous though. i like RBs, but i would probably choose the cushion as well. i think it's very sophisticated.

Both are gorgeous cuts, but a RB will get my vote everytime. It's classic and will forever be. :smile:

what we like doesnt matter. It's you that would wear that ring and smile whenever you look at it.

That being said, I like cushion cut. It's so pretty.....:heart:

Cushions are as classic as rounds..., and they have been around for way-way longer than rounds...

but watch out..., there are a lot of different varieties!!! You can sort them out based on their face-up appearances!

Good Luck

I think the cushion portrayed in the pic above is more square than I would like...the one I saw in the store is a much softer/rounder square cut.

We are going to look at rings again today..hopefully I can come back with more info!! :flowers:
