Cushion-Cut vs. Round-Cut #WeddingMadness

by Samantha Roberts

It's round six of our March Madness Wedding Tournament and today, we'll watch as the #2 seed cushion-cut ring tries to defend it's glory and hold off the round-cut diamond engagement ring! The round-cut ring might be the classic engagement ring, but the cushion-cut is increasing in popularity, especially since a majority of the rings shown on ABC's The Bachelor are cushion-cut!

Voting is open all day today and will close tomorrow at 10 a.m. E.T.

In an update of yesterday's battle in the dress division with the ball gown fighting the mermaid, it was a close game all day with the lead alternating between the two dresses — however, the ball gown wins with 54.27% of the vote.
