I’ve been reading about diamonds since I got engaged back in 2002 and I’ve been a member of Pricescope since 2008, but somehow I missed the emergence of square h&a cuts (it seems like there were a few brands for a while - Jubilee, Princess of Hearts, etc). I’ve always wanted a square diamond, and I started searching for h&a cushions last fall but didn’t really find anything that made my heart sing.

A couple months ago I saw a post here about square radiant h&a stones and fell in love. I searched out every thread and every example I could, but they’re more challenging to find now. I ended up ordering a .91 I SI1 from Good Old Gold which apparently is actually a branded Ideal Square diamond. Here is the AGS report:

And scope images:

And the loose stone:

I wanted to set it in rose gold, and in something to increase the finger coverage just a bit since the biggest downside to me of this cut is facing up on the small side for carat weight. I also wanted to try not to lose the shape of the stone since I love the squareness and the cut corners. I have a plan for a custom bezel, two-tone setting in the future, but I wanted to be able to wear it in the meantime! I sent it back to GOG and had it set in a Stuller setting 122237, ring size 8.5:

I am loving my new ring, and I feel like the diamond pops even more now that it’s set!

Gorgeous!! What a beauty... and the cut parameters, YUM! I'd say it was worth the wait, you found a true needle in a haystack. Enjoy that beauty!

wow I love it! So unique, I haven't seen a lot of those stones! and I love the rose gold too. Very pretty!


Love the pics in the snow! It looks great on you.


It's beautiful @vetrik :kiss2: I sometimes think that centre diamonds can get a bit lost in halos, but yours is absolute perfection! You're totally right, the halo makes the diamond really stand out, and I love the rose gold!


This is such a pretty diamond!


It's a beautiful ring:love: I haven't seen many of these myself and I have to say it's a lovely cut stone.

I love your set. Both rings are really pretty and go so well together.

Thank you everyone! I’m so pleased with this ring, and it’s so amazing to watch in all sorts of lighting conditions!

Congrats! Such a pretty set. The diamond looks so bright and sparkly.

That twist band is really pretty with it too8)


Such an elegant and beautiful ring and gorgeous diamond. Love the band you paired with too! Congrats!

Thanks - it's funny because the band started the whole thing. I bought the band last year just because I liked it so much, and then started looking for rings to pair with it!

What a gorgeous cut and your photography is lovely!

Thank you! I've had luck in the past with dragging out my big DSLR, but I was happy to get all of these with just my phone. I think I'm figuring out how to get better results!

This is so pretty! Enjoy your new ring. Such a beautiful story of timing and persistence to get what you want.

It's funny how sometimes things work out the way it seems they're meant to be. I searched so many different websites for cushion and radiant cut diamonds for so long that I almost miss the hunt now!

That is such a gorgeous cut! i’d be staring at it all day long!

Haha - I definitely do! I'm sitting in a room with recessed lighting right overhead, and I keep getting distracted from my typing with the sparkle and fire.
