Christopher Designs Engagement Rings
Characteristics of Christopher Design Engagement Rings
Christopher Designs was founded by Christopher Slowinski in 1981, following his apprenticeship under master jewelers in both his native Poland and the United States. In his early life, Christopher had studied to become an engineer, and so drew upon that knowledge and experience to create his own patented diamond cutting technique. Mathematically engineered to increase the brilliance and sparkle of the stones, this technique redefined how brilliant a diamond could be, and thus gave the Brilliant Crisscut diamond its name. 77 Criss-crossed facets mark this trademark diamond, so expertly cut that although it has 12 straight walls and sides, it appears round.

The Signature Crisscut Diamond is named for Christopher Design’s signature Crisscut. The crisscrossed facets mean that the light is refracted more brilliantly, and shines all the brighter for it. Another signature cut is the Ascher cut diamond, the rings in the Crisscut Ascher line feature rings around the classic straight shank to split shank, with many bearing diamonds all along the band itself. Another split-shank collection is the Crisscut Cushion, which features the Crisscut diamond sitting center stage amidst smaller diamonds, with a double halo version available for purchase as well.
Additional Christopher Design Engagement Ring Collections
However, we all know that sometimes, we want something more visually distinctive, and the Crisscut Emerald collection offers similar styles, but with an emerald cut stone. Diamonds in this collection have facets set in such a way as to create elusive flashes of light sometimes called “the hall of mirrors effect.” For something more simple and elegant, there’s the Crisscut Round, which presents a timeless round cut diamond popular amongst brides since time immemorial. For the truly contemporary, the Crisscut L’Amour collection features diamonds set in such a way as to create a bold look that offers emotional value as well as value by volume.
