What’s the most requested engagement ring style at Diamonds by Raymond Lee lately? Cushion cut engagement rings NO halo, por favor.
We wouldn’t call it a halo backlash quite yet – the popular style is still going strong. But there’s something irresistible about the timeless beauty of a solitaire engagement ring. When you combine the classic style with today’s hottest diamond shape, the cushion cut, magic happens.
There’s a particular style of cushion cut engagement rings no halo needs to touch to improve, and we (along with oodles and oodles of trendy brides) agree: it’s the cushion cut solitaire on a diamond band. We adore a very delicate diamond band as a base to any style ring, but even the bolder diamond bands beneath a cushion cut solitaire really wow us (and aforementioned oodles of brides.)
So, cushion cut engagement rings – hold the halo – are on the menu today. And if you don’t see one that you’re instantly craving, just let us know. We’re always happy to whip up a custom order designed just for you.
While our Henri Daussi engagement rings are practically known for their stunning cushion cut halo engagement rings, it really is all about the diamond with Daussi. And their specialty is the cushion cut – with or without a halo. This is a great example of the unique work they can do. A stunning 2.51 carat D color, Internally Flawless cushion cut anchors this ring, with .42ctw of tapered baguettes on either side (G color, VS2 clarity.) The setting is a bright polish 18 karat white gold.
Here’s a great example of what happens when cushion cut engagement rings no halo their way to a bold diamond band. This gorgeous center diamond is a GIA certified I color, SI1 clarity weighing in at 1.01 carats. The band is made of .40ctw of round brilliant diamonds set in 14kt white gold.
All hail the Tiffany Novo cushion cut engagement ring! Seriously – this is just pure perfection. It’s exactly what most brides picture when they describe their cushion cut no halo engagement rings. And it’s easy to see why. The center diamond is a 3.28 carat cushion cut with perfectly square proportions. The color is a bright G and the clarity is an impeccable VVS1 clarity. The band, a delicate strand of bead set diamonds, adds another .16 carats total weight to the platinum setting. All the diamonds are, of course, GIA certified, and this ring comes with the Tiffany & Co. papers, certificate, and original box. It’s one of our favorite estate engagement rings, and while it is a premium ring (it’s Tiffany, after all) the price is still significantly less than you’d pay at your nearest Little Blue Box boutique.
Lastly, we can’t pass up an opportunity to show off a beautiful A. Jaffe setting. We love A. Jaffe engagement rings because they take simplicity and turn it into luxury. The brand, established and thriving in NYC, represents New Yorkers’ streamlined but luxe sense of style. So you won’t find any halo here – just unique constructed rounded shanks that kiss to meet the center diamond, and wrap around your finger to end in A. Jaffe’s signature squared off style. This setting is shown with a CZ, but the setting can accommodate a diamond of your choice – obviously we like cushion cut the best!
And again – if you didn’t see your dream ring above, know that we can custom design the perfect ring for you from scratch. We can also modify another setting you love to fit a cushion cut – just because a setting isn’t shown with a cushion cut diamond on our website doesn’t mean we won’t make it happen for you!
