Best 2 Carat Cushion Cut Diamond

Written by The Diamond Advisor. Posted in Diamond Recommendations No Comments

Reader Tracy wrote to us asking:

I am helping my future son-in-law select a cushion cut diamond in the 2.0 carat range. The preference is to find more of a square shape cushion cut than rectangle and the largest looking stone, or the most bang for the buck. He’d like to spend no more than $15K on the stone, but may have a little wiggle room. I located the stone below on Blue Nile and am wondering if it’s a good find or if you can suggest something else that is of equal or better quality. Obviously we want a near colorless and visually beautiful stone.

Hi, I’m just starting out my search and would appreciate some recommendations based off the following parameters. Looking for cushion cut, square shape, with “chunky” look. Aiming for 1.25 carat or above. Everything I’ve read so far is recommending G color (or better) with VS2 clarity (or better). The setting will be platinum. Budget is $8-$9k. Recommendations from both James Allen and Brian Gavin would be very helpful.

Hi Diamond Advisor, Looking for some help selecting a diamond. I am really impressed with what I’ve read on the Brian Gavin Hearts and Arrows diamond. My girlfriend wants a very simple ring, and they also offer a “Tiffany Style” setting that I really like (in white gold). Brian Gavin Tiffany Style Knife Edge Setting. My total budget is about $5500 – $6000. I obviously want the best diamond for the money – but my head is spinning looking at all of the options available to me. Can you make some recommendations? Appreciate the help!

Recommendation for 1.20+ Carat Cushion Cut under $6,000:

Reader Sylvia wrote to us asking:

Hi, I’m looking for a cushion cut with maximum face up value. I have a budget of 6000.00 and would like a great diamond that is eye clean and near colorless. I also like the chunky look and definitely do not like the crushed ice. I like a symmetrical look much like a white diamond. I plan on using this diamond as a solitaire with no other accompanying diamond. What do you recommend? Should I stay with a G color at VS2? I’d like at least a 1.2 carat if possible since my current setting did house a 1.2 carat round diamond. Any help would be appreciated.
