Phenomenal 3.01ct Cushion Brilliant Cut Engagement Ring

Each week I spend a large amount of my time perusing the old posts on the PriceScope forums, I know that especially now more than ever it is wonderful to escape into my sparkling fantasies. This week when our team discussed which post would be best featured for Throwback Thursday, I recalled having landed on a particularly gorgeous 3.01ct Cushion Brilliant Cut Engagement Ring that was originally posted in the Show Me the Bling forum by Hwman.

This Wears Like a Dream!


HWman had a very precise vision of what they were after in the creation of this ring, as many PriceScopers do. The mission was started with research, as it should be. Heading out to view and compare several styles of rings to see which style most closely matched their vision; they did their homework. As with any diamond ring search, they leaned into the PS forums to discuss options and opinions with the many knowledgeable people at their fingertips. The result was outstanding, their hard work and perseverance paid off. Just take a look at that sparkle!


They met with over 15 jewelers before deciding exactly what they were looking for. PS member HWman came to the final decision that the Harry Winston halo with modifications was the ideal home for their Cushion Brilliant Cut diamond. HWman advises that you see samples of jeweler’s work before opting to get a custom made.  As mentioned, not every jeweler was actually up to the task at hand. Seeking a delicately slender 1.5 MM shank, they took their time to find a jeweler that could meet their needs and it was a great success.

Take a Look at that Shank!

This magnificent 3.01ct Cushion Brilliant Cut center stone was sourced by Mark Turnowski at Brilliantly Engaged (the Engagement Rings Direct).  He did a phenomenal job and found a stone that will provide smiles for a lifetime!
