Recently, we’ve noticed that an elongated cushion-cut diamond shape has become more popular than a square cushion-cut diamond shape. We’re guessing the ladies like how the more rectangular shape makes the finger appear longer. If you’ve never heard of “cushion cut” before, it’s a cross between a princess (square) shape and round brilliant shape diamond, with softened corners to look like a pillow. Elongated simply means that it looks more like a rectangle than a square. Here are 10 of our favorite elongated cushion-cut diamond engagement rings:
