Under Pressure

It's hard to believe that under extreme pressure a dirty, opaque little piece of coal can turn into something in which creates some of the most amazing rainbows of light.  Nature creates some fabulous inspiration!

One of my favorite quotes & certainly has a bit of truth to it!

I've always loved early cushion cuts.  Truly they are some of my favorite cuts - even modern cushions - because no two are alike.  Each cushion cut seems to be a reflection of the cutter who perfected that little piece of coal.  So here's some fabulous cushion cut eye candy; provided by Mother Nature and re-fashioned by human hands to get you through the day! 

I love how this fabulous .84ct K VS1 Cushion Cut Diamond offered through Diamonds by Lauren refracts
the light in an almost quadrant-like formation.

From my personal collection, a .51 ct modern brilliant cushion cut diamond set in platinum by Tivol.

A 2.74Ct Light Brown Vintage Cushion Cut Diamond Set In Rose Gold from Single Stone.  Isn't this stone
just amazing?!  I love the bit warm color with the rose gold.  Not to mention, at almost 3 carats, it's a stunner!

This vintage Cushion Cut Trio Platinum Pendant has a total carat weight of 1.05 from Peter Suchy Jewelers on eBay, $2,250.
This is truly one of my favorite pendants & is certainly one of the top items on my Wish List!

Antique Platinum 2 Carat Cushion Cut Diamond Daisy Ring Art Deco, circa 1920s, from Captain6 Antique
Diamonds on eBay, $2,485. This daisy ring is just fabulous!  It is also a prime example of how each cushion cut
diamond is just a little bit different from every other one.  Lovely!

Another from my personal collection, a vintage .61 carat vintage cushion cut diamond repurposed in white gold as
one of Jewels by Grace's signature bangles.  This is one of my favorite pieces because it is so classic & chic.
