What is your philosophy behind Carat, Cut, Color, Clarity for the perfect engagement ring?

Cut is the most important of the C’s! Cut harnesses all the available light from any environment and redirects it through the table of the stone and into the human eye. This is the sparkle, the fire, the passion of the stone. I hold XX cutting patents. All reinventions of traditional diamond cutting rules. I broke the rules to maximize the bril-liance and offer her something unique, Crisscut!

What differentiates CRISSCUT from other diamonds?

Uniqueness. Crisscut challenges traditional cutting techniques and parameters. I pushed myself to improve, to reinvent, to offer something more than generic diamonds. After all, she is the one your heart chose, she is the one, doesn’t she deserve a stone as unique as she is?

How and when did you develop the CRISSCUT diamond?

Crisscut was a happy accident. I was faceting a di-amond and slipped at the cutting wheel. What I saw intrigued me, it was interesting and different. I decided to continue the pattern the same way and Crisscut was born! Years of trial and error followed until I perfected the angles to maximize the bril-liance of the stone. I was awarded a patent for my labor of love in 1997.

What is the value proposition that CD offers to its customers?

A truly unique designer diamond line. I am one of the few designers in the world that offer my branded Crisscut diamonds in multiple shapes. We manufacture exclusively in the US and I personally inspect and approve each ring before it leaves our studio.

What advice would you give to a gentleman in the market for engagement ring?

Follow your heart. You fell in love and decided that she was the one! When selecting a diamond and an engagement ring chose something as unique as she is. Don’t be persuaded to follow trends or accept limitations.

What kind of diamond certification does Chris-topher Designs offer?

The vast majority of our Center stones are certified by the GIA. This certificate is recognized and ac-cepted as the benchmark around the world.

What is your favorite shape? That’s like asking which of my children do I love most? I love them all equally they each have their own passion and fire, each offering something very special.

Who is your inspiration muse?

I believe you have to open, to receive inspiration in whatever form it presents itself. I read the classics, I paint, I listen to many forms of music. I open my-self to the creative universe and it is my muse.

Cut is the most important of the C’s! Cut harnesses all

the available light from any environment and redirects it through the table of the stone and into the human eye.
