Characteristics of Christopher Designs
Founded in 1981 by Polish immigrant Christopher Slowinski, Christopher Designs has been reinventing the diamond cutting industry ever since. Using his experience as an engineer, Slowinski created a new technique, coined the Brilliant Crisscut, that would allow for more refraction of light in a diamond to achieve a stunning, unmatched radiance. Initially used for emerald shapes, the technique eventually evolved to include new diamond shapes like the ever-popular Crisscut Cushion. The Brilliant Crisscut gives the illusion of a round stone that is, in reality, composed of 12 straight walls and 12 sides, giving the appearance of an elegantly scalloped edge.

Christopher Design’s signature Crisscut diamonds are featured in every engagement ring, including solitaire and halo designs. The Crisscut Round is beautiful in its simplicity. A classic yet modern design, the round cut is a perfect match for a romantic heart. The center stone is enhanced with either a halo setting or accent diamonds on the side, adding to its radiance. Using the Crisscut Cushion as the center stone adds even more show-stopping brilliance. Christopher Designs is beloved for his refusal to compromise on diamond quality, and it shows in his flawless selection of engagement rings for the modern woman.
For a unique look, the Crisscut Emerald takes a typical emerald cut and elevates it to something more. This luxury piece highlights the diamond’s clarity with an elongated shape, adding more surface area for the light to refract off. With uncomplicated metalwork on the band, all of the focus is on the diamonds that adorn the ring, highlighting a large emerald-cut center stone and a vintage-inspired shank. Women who want to make a bold statement with classical elements in their engagement rings will adore the options available in this collection.
