What Can We Expect in 2020?
As one commonly knows, each new year will bring in a series of trends and popular niche markets. When it comes down to it, who wouldn’t want to select the most unique, fashionable ring they can render? With that being said, this year, the topic of a common “must have” engagement ring is shining light on elongated cushion cut gems. According to Pinterest and its trending searches, “Elongated Cushion Engagement Rings” are up by a stunning 143% in 2020 alone. These statistics can partially be credited due to the fact that famous celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez have been hitting the streets, flashing off their new elongated cushion cut favorites.
What is an Elongated Cushion Cut?
The elongated cushion cut can be described as a square shaped diamond, (or other gemstone), that has a rounder cut on the edges, which essentially, gives it a softer “pillow-like” look. This traditional cut is considered unique in the sense that it is more symmetrical than other counterparts and can come across as more elegant due to the shape and intricate detail that is featured prominently in its fine lines. Attributable to the unique shape this cut features, the centerpiece can give the appearance of a larger facet compared to similar cuts within the same carat weight. Ideally, with a desired range between a 1.10 and 1.30 ratio, the elongated cushion could be the perfect, trendy, engagement ring to fashionably close off your year with a “Yes, I do!”.
