Do I choose a jbg 5.01 or a 3.75 cushion for this ring that I'll have custom made? I wear a 2.22 oec daily in yg bezel, I do l My oec and I will always keep it. But this design by JAR is aaaaamazzzing and I want to have my mind made up by Christmas.
First of all, here are two jbg cushions that I'm considering

My finger is a 5.5. The JAR inspiration image is over 15cts! I'd love to see that in person but that's not happening.
This is it below

To my eye, and far from knowing anything about cushions, I think the smaller stone has more life and fire in it. Are you set definitely on a cushion? Love the bezel setting!

I like 5.01 more and I think bigger stone will look better in this setting. So I vote for 5.01 (Go big or go home :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: , jk)

I like the facet pattern of the 5.01 more than the smaller one, so I'm voting for that

I think the larger stone will give you the "look" you are trying to recreate..... having said that, the smaller stone will face up whiter and has a more typical antique cushion type cut pattern.

The larger stone is prettier!

I prefer the 3.75 faceting wise, but the 5 carat will give you the look you are going after.

I too prefer the 5.01c facet pattern - but what a great dilemma to have!

[correcting the link]

The Jar stone reminds me of a historical diamond cut - there is a revival of sorts, but no large stone on offer, you'd have to ask for it.

Yes I agree. I prefer the 3.75 faceting but the larger size works better in this style setting. Probably they would both look great however. Good luck!

Gemrocks did a gorgeous cushion bezel ring (CVB/LAD) with an antique cushion (AVC) less than 3 cts. So really, it all depends on your comfort level, budget, and the look you want. I really like the size of gemrock's ring, so personally, I would go with the stone in the 3 ct range, especially since your other diamond is 2 cts.

I would want to see a video of the 5 carat in a gem holder on her finger (like they did the smaller stone)...I didnt see that (or did I
miss it). I would want to see how it sparkles and I'm not seeing it from those 2 videos.

Ha ! That is... something !

The broad facets of the Jar stone made me think of the very old-school Peruzzi, and forgot about the August Vintage Cushions that sure do fit the bill.

Well I am a go big or go home kind of gal. I also think the faceting on the larger is prettier, so I vote big!

I see something directly under the table on the 5.01 stone which, I think, would bother me. On the other hand, the 3.75 seems very bright and there isn't anything under the table. So, even though I like the size of the bigger stone, it seems like the smaller stone is nicer. I also like the way the facets turn on and off better than the larger stone.
They're both pretty stones, though, and I think they'd look amazing in the setting you're considering!
