Unmatched Brilliance

Baubles, Bling and Dazzling Things

Originally dubbed as a “table cut,” this rectangular beauty is one of the oldest diamond shapes with roots dating back to the 1500’s.  Resembling a hall of mirrors, it gained a new name in the 1920’s.  Featuring 57 facets, the emerald cut diamond (as it is now known) is recognized as perhaps the most elegant and sophisticated of all the silhouettes.  

While it can be challenging to improve upon near perfection, there have been rare instances throughout history.  In 1981, Christopher Slowinski introduced the world to Christopher Designs.  He is a master stone cutter and a visionary, he single-handedly revolutionized the emerald cut diamond.  Elaborating upon the existing profile, Slowinski added triangular shaped facets to the steps in the pavilion (lower half) of the stone taking it from fifty-seven to a whopping seventy-seven facets!  This expert design capitalizes on the scintillation and light dispersion, producing a continuous exchange of light – bouncing back and forth with mesmerizing results.  Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Original Crisscut Emerald Diamond.

We recently added this dazzler to our estate collection.  Made entirely from platinum, this ring is a true showstopper.  The center stone is a 1.51 carat Crisscut diamond.  This beauty is perfectly nestled between a series of twenty-four Crisscut tapered baguette diamonds that graduate in size with a combined weight of 1.49 carats.  Finally, the three-row look is completed with seventy-four round brilliant stones.  These diamonds outline both sides as well as the center and add an additional .70 carat of bling.  All told, the total gem weight of this modern marvel is 3.70 carats!  Wow!

An elegant engagement ring or a sophisticated anniversary band?  This ring is ideal for every occassion.  And it’s a real steal…  the primary advantage of estate jewelry is undoubtedly the price!  Make this authentic Crisscut Diamond ring yours for just $16,750.00.
