Fantastic from start to finish. The shop is located in a beautiful part of London which is easy to get to. Inside the shop itself I felt comfortable and relaxed. Being the first time buying an engagement ring I thought I might feel pressured but that was not the case. After ordering the ring communication was great throughout and delivery was on time. Upon opening the box I was taken aback by the how flawless the ring looked. I was genuinely lost for words. Thanks to all the staff at Ingle and Rhode that helped me pick the most perfect ring.

Beautiful, ethical jewellery - can't recommend enough! I am so glad that I found Ingle & Rhode when looking to buy my partner an engagement ring - they are superb, and the products are wonderful. Buying an ethical ring was really important to my partner and I, and so I was immediately drawn in by Ingle & Rhode - unlike a lot of ethical jewellery companies, their rings are still very contemporary.. which was exactly what my partner wanted! I had a couple of calls with Ellie during the process, who was so helpful - despite not having a great idea of what to go for, she was decisive and led me towards my own decisions; highly recommend speaking with the team, because they are wonderful (and lovely people too). Can't recommend using Ingle and Rhode highly enough - my partner loved the ring that I chose, and we would definitely use them again for jewellery in the future.

Excellent process for bespoke engagement ring Excellent process, from start to finish. I emailed to begin the process of designing a bespoke ring. Within 2 days I had an in person meeting to discuss ideas. I was shown some examples and given brilliant advice by Ellie, who I found extremely reassuring throughout. The designer, Hayley, sent me initial sketches 1-2 weeks after the in person appointment. Hayley was very patient and again provided brilliant advice. Hayley was quick to create new design iterations based on my feedback. After many back and forward emails, the design was finalised and CAD mockups were provided. The mockups were extremely accurate when comparing with the finished product. The entire process, from first email to collection, took 6 weeks for a bespoke ring made with recycled platinum and a beautiful pear diamond (which was 2-4 weeks faster than their estimate). Communication was excellent and they were very keen to fit deadlines around plans I had in place. Ring resizing was required (my estimations were 4 sizes off!). I rang to book an appointment for a professional measurement and was able to meet the same day with short notice. The ring is to be collected within 7 working days. Overall the entire process was excellent. I felt very well looked after, very reassured and found all staff genuinely trustworthy. Above all else, my partner loves the ring and we are both extremely happy.

From Russia With Love Cannot express how grateful I am to have ended up using Ingle & Rhode to construct an engagement ring for my now fiancé! I was absolutely clueless how to go about finding a ring but quickly realised I knew what style I wanted and enquired about designing and constructing a ring. From the moment Ellie got in touch she made the whole experience effortless and with Hayley's design help produced drawings of a ring that were exactly what I had pictured - all this achieved via email from an oil rig in Eastern Russia! I received the ring once home and upon opening the box I could not believe Ingle & Rhode were able to turn a few emails into such a perfect and incredible ring that was just a thought I my head only weeks before. We are now very happily engaged and the ring could not mean more to us given the nature of how it came to be and what it now represents. Once again, I cannot thank Ellie enough. All the best Ally

Perfection. From the initial meet to the final ring, ever step of the process was incredibly. I surprised my (now) fiancé with a diamond ring and everything was perfect. Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking to get an engagement ring for their partner.

Why is ethical sourcing so important?

Without proper ethical sourcing, you may unwittingly buy a blood diamond, helping finance criminal armies in war-torn areas. The only way to guarantee a diamond is ethical is to go beyond the flawed  Kimberley Process and trace it to its source, which we do for all of our diamonds.

Ethical sourcing also means protecting the environment and human rights, which is why we use recycled or Fairtrade gold, as well as Fairmined silver and recycled platinum.

How to choose a Cushion Cut diamond

Cushion cut diamonds make for elegant and distinctive engagement rings. However, there are quite a few variations of the cushion cut available on the market, which can make matters confusing for consumers. We’ve provided some guidance below to help you decide whether a cushion cut diamond is the right option for you, and you may also wish to read our general guidance on diamond grading.

Cushion Cut diamond

Combining the best of the old and the new

The modern cushion cut evolved from the old mine cut, which was the most popular shape for a diamond until the early twentieth century. Perhaps this is why today’s cushion cuts are evocative of a bygone era, and are a particularly popular choice for vintage-style engagement rings.

While modern cushion cut diamonds are shaped like old mine cuts, with a ‘soft’ square or pillow shape (giving rise to the name), their faceting is similar to the round brilliant cut pioneered by Marcel Tolkowsky during the first part of the twentieth century. As a result, they tend to sparkle more than the older stones.

Modern cushion cuts are are less forgiving of poor clarity

Modern cushion cut diamonds have much larger table facets than the old mine cuts, which means that they are less forgiving of poor clarity — a centrally located inclusion is likely to be visible. If you are considering a stone graded SI1 or lower, it is likely that it will not look flawless to the naked eye.

Square vs. rectangular cushions

Another factor to consider is your preferred length to width ratio. If the length is within 5% of the width, then the diamond is defined as a square cushion. Diamonds like this are always popular, as are rectangular cushions where the length is about 10% greater than the width. Once the length is 20% greater than the width, this is considered highly rectangular, which is generally less popular.

Cushion modified brilliant diamond certificate

Cushion vs. cushion modified

On a technical level, modern cushion cuts are divided into two groups – cushion brilliants, and cushion modified brilliants. The two are faceted the same on the top (known as the crown), but the modified variation has an extra row of facets on the underside (known as the pavilion). The different faceting patterns should be outlined on the diamond’s certificate.

Don’t make your decision based only on a certificate

There are a couple of key factors that won’t become clear from the paperwork.

The first is the shaping of the diamond’s corners. Some cushion cuts have corners that are almost square or right-angled, while others are much more ‘soft’ or rounded. This is a matter of personal preference.

The second issue is whether the stone is a ‘chunky’ or a ‘crushed ice’ cushion. With a chunky cushion, if you look through the table from above you will see the facets line up neatly, often making an ‘X’ shape that meets in the middle of the stone. This is similar to the faceting that you would see in a round brilliant cut.

However, with a ‘crushed ice’ cushion, the facets will appear to be distributed randomly, hence its name – this is also sometimes referred to as ‘broken glass’, and resemble  the pattern you would typically see in a radiant cut.

You can see the cushion cut engagement rings from our own collection below. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions, or to discuss commissioning your own bespoke design.
