Cushions tend to hold on to color (warmth) however, color is always a personal preference. Below are 4 different color cushion cut diamonds. Which do you prefer?

Another factor to consider is the cut of the cushion you are choosing. The cut of the diamond will dictate the overall shape of your cushion.
