Hi!
I have a quick question about L/W ratios on cushions. I definitely prefer a rectangular look, but one of the stones I am considering measures out at 7.48x5.64x3.08 - is this going to be SUPER long and strange looking? I know cushions need to be seen which is why I am going to view this one in person. But wanted to know if it''s even worth my while to check it out. Thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

How long you want your cushion is really up to you. Personally, I like cushions that are a little long. This one will be long, but not overly long in my opinion. Only you will know if it''s too long for your taste after you see it.

Thanks everyone! Now I''m really excited to see the stone!
It''s a D color so that part is exciting too.

Diagem - I totally want the stone to be unique! Everyone around me has RBs and while I think they''re gorgeous, they''re just not for me (or my fingers!). Those stones you posted look lovely!

Pixley - that Ashoka pic is AMAZING!

kcoursolle - I like longer cushions too! For the longest time I wanted a rectangular radiant so maybe this is the best way to get the best of both worlds!

Will keep you guys posted. Thanks for your replies!

Hey DiaGem

Those are really nice cushions! You''re right, they totally do not look like ovals
