Combining classic European jewellery training and modern technology gave birth to the stunning brand that is Christopher Design. Christopher Slowinski, the founder, redefined the way a diamond could be cut with his patented Crisscut. Featuring more facets than a traditionally cut diamond – these stones not only appear larger in size but boast an unbeatable sparkle. Sitting within the setting, held by dainty but strong 18k white gold prongs, a 1.03ct. emerald Crisscut diamond is outlined and defined by a rectangular shaped halo of round diamonds. The expanse of this brilliant stone is measured at 7.08 x 4.74 x 3.26mm., perfectly showing off every stunning step-cut facet, right down to the cutlet, with thanks to its VVS-2 clarity, near colourless I gauge, and shimmering sparkle from the Very Good cut. This diamond was graded before being set by EGL (European Gemological Laboratory) and comes with a certificate number that can be verified at (www.eglantwerp.eu) Claw set in the rectangular shaped halo spotlighting the centre stone, cascading down the dainty band, and peppering the profile detailing are a total of thirty round brilliant cut diamonds. These stones have approximate ranging measurements of 2.30 – 0.90 x 0.96mm., with an approximate total weight of 0.74ct. These diamonds are graded with SI-1 clarity, I colour, and very good cut, adding to the shimmering beauty this engagement ring emulates. Create your own history when you slip this amazing piece of natural beauty on their finger as a promise of forever-more.
