I received the 2 carat tw Lightbox cushion cuts this week. They were out of the rounds last weekend and I like that these were compass set and with flat back vs the 3 prong martini’s. When I did try to pull off one of the tags, the backing easily bent out of shape. I immediately replaced them with more durable backings since these are larger earrings and I didn’t want to lose them. I would suggest if you go up to the 1 carat each that you switch them out.

The earrings measured 6.3, which is a little under a 1 carat face up because they are cushion’s. When I took a picture next to the 2 carat round, they were noticeably whiter. I was expecting a more splintery cut but they have an almost crushed ice look to them. They are also slightly hazy in certain lights under the table. It reminds me slightly of what moissanite crushed ice can look like. For the price and the size, I am happy enough with them to keep them. They still sparkle nicely but probably not as much as the rounds.

Gorgeous! I never even contemplated cushions but these as lovely. Thanks for mentioning the setting, I would prefer a flat back rather than martini setting so I’ll definitely look into those.
Would love to see some ear shots if you’re happy to share.

It’s very hard to get a clear shot of the diamond itself but it fits like you would expect a 1 carat to fit.

I think those earrings are absolutely beautiful, they look fabulous on you.

I have the 1ct cushion cut pendant from Lightbox and it's my most admired diamond. The sparkle is incredible, although different to the sparkle from a round brilliant. It seems to catch the light in a way I can't describe. Cushion is my favourite cut.

They are a nice every day earring. I do like how flush they sit and that they are slightly smaller then the rounds (6.3mm). The only thing I notice is that I have to clean them more often them my round’s to keep them sparkly. A good scrub once a week and they stay good.
