A cushion cut engagement ring is rare in modern rings even though it is becoming more popular. This may be the reason why a lot of couples want this unique style. No woman wants the exact same ring as her friends. The multiple variations of the cushion cut offers couples many more options. With the diamond's large face, it will look their best in a solitaire setting. Mainly due to the attention it will draw to the center of the ring. Some women like to add diamonds down the sides giving it an even more traditional appeal.
