I don’t know why, or how it happened, but I seem to be looking at the trillion cut with fresh eyes, like it’s something I’ve never seen before, and I really like what I see. Maybe it’s because I’m seeking it out, or it’s possible that a new trend is on the rise, but I’m finding that I’ve encountered a flurry of trillion-cut stones in the last couple of weeks. Triangles are a trending shape in jewelry design, where negative space takes the three-point form in numerous pieces, so it makes sense that the look would be taken to the next level with gemstone cuts. I have yet to see many engagement rings with the cut—and though it would be interesting to see this shape overtake the cushion cut, I highly doubt it will. What I have found are a number of really beautiful rings, earrings, and pendants in all manner of colored gemstones set into quite a range of designs. Here are some of my findings below, and if we’re onto something, it might be a good idea to take stock of your trillion cuts before the holiday season. Is this the new hottest cut we’re craving? I think it just may be.
