Her gorgeous AVC is over 5 cts! I have had the pleasure of seeing that one and trying it on!

I do like many shapes in the antique cushions, but the CACs and AVCs generally aren't overly elongated. M2b's AVC is a good example. I'd take that one anyday (or it's baby sister, more likely!)!!!
But the thing that is not in question is that very few modern cushions or even other antique style cushions are going to even come close to the light return (as shown by an ASET image) of an ideal cut antique cushion such as an AVC or CAC. Many (or most) modern cushions and ovals, for example, are kind of blah in the light return department. I want my stones to show up from a distance. I enjoy seeing my perfectly cut diamond in big stores with halogen lighting like I never did with my first diamond.
