The cushion cut diamond wasn’t always known as that – in the past, the shape was originally referred to as the mine cut. The mine cut was a square diamond that had rounded corners. It was named after the Brazilian diamond mines.

Instead of the modern cushion cut wich has 64 facets. You’ll notice modern cushions have more brilliance than their old mine counterparts.
