ACCs are the cushion equivalent to OECs. They were cut with tall crowns and small tables, and have a characteristic Maltese cross due to the crown height. They have big chunky facets and produce bold flashes that more slowly around the stone than the fast fire of modern day cuts. They were cut to sparkle pre electricity so they perform very well in low lighting. Some times they are referred to as candle light cushions. They lack the “perfection” of modern cuts but the make up for it beautiful pastel flashes and old world charm.
