Lab Grown Cushion Cut Diamond Engagement Rings at Grown Brilliance
At Grown Brilliance, we offer a variety of pre-set lab grown cushion cut diamond engagement rings. These exquisite pieces of jewelry combine the timeless elegance of cushion cut diamonds with the sustainable and affordable advantages of lab grown stones.
From their eco-friendly production to their exceptional design elements, there are numerous reasons why these rings are becoming the preferred choice for many couples.
Lab Grown Sustainability
At Grown Brilliance, our lab grown cushion cut diamond engagement rings stand out for a wonderful reason: sustainability. Unlike mined diamonds, which involve intense mining processes that harm the environment, lab grown diamonds are crafted in controlled labs.
This reduces the carbon footprint linked to traditional diamond mining, making these rings an eco-friendly choice. By choosing lab grown diamonds, couples can express their love while also making a positive impact on our planet’s future.
Top Quality at an Affordable Price Point
Our lab grown cushion cut diamond engagement rings are much more budget-friendly than mined diamonds. Compared to mined stones, lab grown diamonds are often much kinder to your wallet. The way they’re made allows for better control over the supply, which means lower costs.
Lab grown diamonds are often around 50% less expensive for the same carat weight. For example, our Station Cushion Side Stone Engagement Ring costs around £4,585 for 3 carats. A similar-sized mined diamond would likely be double this price, making our lab grown diamonds the more affordable option.
Style and Design Versatility
When it comes to design elements, cushion cut diamonds offer a captivating blend of vintage charm and contemporary elegance. The cushion cut is characterized by its square or rectangular shape with rounded corners and brilliant facets. This unique combination creates a distinctive play of light, resulting in exceptional sparkle and fire.
The cushion cut’s versatility also allows for various setting options, including solitaire, like our 2 cwt Classic Solitaire, or three stone design, like the Cushion Three Stone Ring, allowing couples to customize their ring to reflect their style.
The cushion cut’s soft and romantic appeal makes it an excellent choice for those seeking a vintage-inspired engagement ring. Its classic yet modern aesthetic effortlessly captures attention and adds a touch of sophistication. With options like the Round Sapphire and Cushion Side Stone Engagement Ring, you can find a truly stunning piece for your special someone’s finger.
Whether set in white gold, rose gold, or platinum, the cushion cut lab grown diamond engagement ring becomes a statement piece that symbolizes your commitment and everlasting love.
A Symbol of Enduring Love
In addition to their stunning beauty, cushion-cut diamond rings carry symbolic significance. The cushion cut is often associated with timeless elegance, romance, and a vintage aesthetic. The rounded corners and soft, pillow-like shape evoke a sense of comfort and warmth, making it a popular choice for engagement rings.
The symbolism of a cushion-cut diamond ring can represent enduring love, commitment, and a connection to the past, adding a meaningful touch to your special moment. For example, our Split Shank Cushion Side Stone Engagement Ring features a curved setting, which holds the cushion cut diamond inside the diamond-flanked setting.

Cushion cut diamonds exude a certain charm that’s unique and romantic. Their soft, pillow-like shape with rounded corners and larger facets provides unparalleled depth and brilliance. The glow emitted by these diamonds is subtly beautiful rather than overtly flashy. This soft, romantic allure sets them apart from other diamond shapes, making them an excellent choice for those seeking a ring with a vintage feel.
The cushion cut pairs beautifully with a variety of settings, from classic solitaire to dazzling halo styles, ensuring your ring will reflect your personal style. Plus, the cushion cut’s design, particularly its rounded edges, makes it less prone to chipping compared to some other cuts.
If you are fond of all things vintage, the cushion cut, with its origins in the 19th century, holds a timeless appeal. Yet, it also fits seamlessly into contemporary designs.
Caring for your lab grown cushion cut diamond engagement ring is essential to ensuring its long-lasting beauty. When wearing your lab created cushion cut ring, avoid exposing it to harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could potentially damage the setting.
Since lab grown diamonds are as hard as natural diamonds, the stone may not become damaged, but softer metals like gold can experience discoloration when exposed to chemicals like chlorine and bleach. You should also remove your ring when engaging in physical activities, like outdoor work or sports.
To clean your lab grown cushion cut diamond, use a soft brush and mild soap solution, gently scrubbing the stone and band to remove any dirt or buildup. Rinse it thoroughly and dry it with a soft, lint-free cloth. Regular cleaning will help maintain its brilliance and sparkle. Try to have your ring professionally inspected and cleaned by a jeweler periodically to keep it clean and in sparkling condition.
When you’re not wearing your ring, store it in a soft pouch or a dedicated jewelry box to protect it from scratches.
Yes, lab created cushion cut diamonds can be certified by reputable gemological laboratories. These certifications provide an objective evaluation of the diamond’s quality, including its carat weight, color, clarity, and cut. The most common certification for lab grown diamonds is the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
GIA certification requires a comprehensive evaluation of a diamond’s characteristics and quality based on a strict set of criteria. The certification process involves a team of expert gemologists who assess and grade the diamond’s key attributes, including the 4Cs: cut, color, carat weight and clarity.
The carat weight determines the diamond’s size, while color refers to the presence of any tint or hue. Clarity examines the presence of internal and external flaws, known as inclusions and blemishes, respectively. Cut assesses the diamond’s proportions, symmetry and craftsmanship, affecting its brilliance and sparkle.
During the certification process, the diamond is examined under controlled lighting conditions using specialized tools and techniques. The gemologists precisely measure and grade each aspect of the diamond’s quality, resulting in a detailed report that includes a plot of its internal characteristics, as well as a description of its unique attributes.
At Grown Brilliance, we provide certification cards for all center stones purchased for the Design Your Ring service. We also provide certification cards for any jewelry that has a center stone or matched pairs with ¾ carat diamond or larger.
