If you look in the Show Me The Bling forum there are many cushions and most people mention their finger size. You can likely find someting comparable.

I have a 1.37 carat cushion on a size 6.5 finger and it is plenty big. I haven't posted pics on here but I definitely wouldn't call it small which is of course very subjective.

Listen to DD...there are lots of pics in show me the bling. Remember they are uber zoomed in though.

I don't think anyone's fingers could make 7+ mm x 6.5+ mm look "small" but if it's finger coverage you're after, cushion might not be the best cut for you.

I like this diamond but I think it will look to small on my size 7 finger. What do you think? :appl:
Can someone post a picture of a diamond with the same or very similar measurements so I can see what it looks like?

BTW...you cant buy fancy cut stones without pictures. There are all kinds of different looks when it comes to cushions.
GOG has lots of videos on cushions that might help you find the look that you like.

See these two links for more info

I think that would be a very nice size of diamond - definitely not too small. Maybe you can find a cushion cut of similar size locally to make sure you would be happy with it.

I don't think that a 1.37 stone looks small on anyone's hand. With that said, you really should go out in person to some B&M stores and try on different styles and sizes to actually see what you prefer. Also, you would definitely want to see what shape of cushion you prefer- a more square shaped cushion or a more rectangular shape cushion.
