I don't have much information about the diamond, all from vendor's website. I will ask for more details later and also need your opinions.
I love tiffany novo look, trying to find a cushion and band to make a similar looking with novo. Need help!

http://www.briangavindiamonds.com/home/ring-details/?product_id=5372 Is the closest setting to the actual Novo... BGD also has the Quadex, which many who look for the Novo love: Here's one in budget for you: http://www.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond/diamond-detail/?product_id=AGS-104049558004 here's another: http://www.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond/diamond-detail/?product_id=AGS-104049558005


Also popular for Novo seekers is the Princess of Hearts: http://www.goodoldgold.com/diamond/8536/ and the Julilee (none in your budget really, unfortunately) as well as Square Hearts and Arrows (also none in budget).

If you want a generic cushion though... I'd call Engagement Rings Direct as they have a good balance between pricing and expertise with beautiful cushions.

You can also look on James Allen for generic cushion.... Here's one with promise: http://www.jamesallen.com/diamonds/G-VS2-Premium-Cut-Cushion-Diamond-1353564.asp a bit deep, but pretty faceting... you can ask if it's eyeclean and how it performs.

In my opinion, table is too big and the diamonds too shallow. Overall, I just don't like the look but then again ... I am a bit biased in my views on modified cushions.

Hey Charmy... how many cushions are you up to these days? My count is still: 0. :)

Thank you guys!
Vendor recommended 3 stones to me, pls have a look and give me some feedback.
which one is the best? I will ask for aset image and put one on hold.
Also, if you have any chunky cushion recommend in my criteria, would be very welcomed.

The ones you posted aren't chunky cushions. If you want a REAL chunky cushion at a good price call ERD.

I don't really care for any of them... but I dislike the last. Get an ASET of the first two if you like them.

This is one example of a chunky cushion... and in your budget: http://www.goodoldgold.com/diamond/7138/

Thanks a lot, Mrs W :wink2:
Your welcome :) I hope everything works out for you. Don't forget to get ASET images for the cushions you like and post those in your thread so they can be evaluated. Also, on those 2 SI2 cushions, ask if they are eyeclean.

Oh man Roxie ... get on it!!! I still own just the 2 diamond cushions (although I have numerous other cushions in colored stones). I am very happy with my wedding set and won't be changing for a while. It is so me and I adore it. My poor Maytal ring hasn't left the box since I got my Leon / AVC. I don't think I have even looked at it.

PS: I got married this past Saturday so ... time to start saving agin. I lost my Leon Mege ring box and he said he will give me two boxes when I get my next ring. :cheeky:

Out of all the diamonds you posted, D2 is the only chunky cushion and I think it looks nice with the info provided. For a good price, contact Leon Mege or ERD - they have access to good "generic" cushions. You can also call GOG to see what they can get for you - their AVCs are dreamy and so well cut. I am always getting questions on how I clean my diamond to make it so sparkly ... well ... I never clean my rings .. it is the well cut diamond that makes it sparkly.
