Back in the 1990s, when the brilliance of the round cut diamonds have taken over the market by storm, the future of fancy cut diamonds started to become bleak. Compared to the brilliant round, the step-cut cushion or emerald looked less dazzling and almost entirely glassy. Then Christopher Slowinksi and his partners showed up with a clever innovation to these classic cuts with Christopher Design's Crisscut design. The unique crisscrossed configuration and facet arrangement brought new life to the emerald, asscher and cushion cuts. The crisscut pattern is carefully designed and cut using the most modern technologies to make light bounce off among facets, giving the stones a depth of fire, scintillation and brilliance that could almost rival any brilliant rounds. “I have always been intrigued with taking something established and making it even more beautiful,” explains Slowinski. And that is exactly what he did to the fading glories of the fancy cuts. Experience a fresh twist to the cuts you have always loved.
