The Story of Crisscut® Diamonds
Christopher Slowinski was born in Poland and founded Christopher Designs in 1981. He apprenticed under master jewelry craftsmen in his native country and in the United States. Today, he combines his classic jewelry training with modern technology to create exclusive designs that include his patented Crisscut® stones.
The original Crisscut® was launched with great fanfare: the arrangement of the 77 (versus the generic 48) “crisscrossed” facets redefined just how brilliant a diamond could be. Christopher’s never ending pursuit of perfection and focus on innovation led him to work on redefining the generic round as his next project. “I have always been intrigued with taking something established and making it even more beautiful,” explains Slowinski.
