Thanks Christopher Designs for supporting the Propose Too initiative.
“Couples today are much more unique than ever", says Christopher Slowinski, renowned diamond cutter and CEO of Christopher Designs. “They’re less rooted in following traditions that have no special meaning to them simply because it’s the way it’s been done in the past. They reflect much more modern views. Why should the man always be expected to propose? What about if a woman wants to? She should feel empowered to do so. What if they want to propose to a person of the same sex? What if the other person wants to propose back? They should have the opportunity and symbols to do so. Today, couples are looking for elements that express their uniqueness in every way, and that’s why my L’Amour Crisscut diamond cuts are appealing to them. That’s why this ‘Propose Too’ initiative is so timely and powerful. I want to not only provide them with unique diamond cuts that are bigger and more brilliant, I want to give them the tools to propose.”
Christopher Designs specializes in helping her get the engagement ring of her dreams, while helping him fit her desires into his budget. The brand not only creates engagement rings in a variety of the most popular styles, but actually cuts their own Crisscut® and L’Amour Crisscut® diamonds in a variety of shapes. These patented diamond cuts, created by founder Christopher Slowinski, were developed after years of studying the reflection and refraction of light within diamonds.
Slowinski realized that diamond pavilions (the bottom of a diamond below its widest point) were a pricey waste of material and money. The bulk of a diamond’s carat weight, which factors into the price, is located in the pavilion, an area usually not seen once the stone is set into a mounting. His patented diamonds, developed with engineering techniques, are cut to maximize light return and abandon that old school “iceberg-cut effect”. The result? These stones appear whiter, brighter and more sparkly, and dollars stretch farther to get that bigger look she wants. In fact, depending upon which shape, these diamonds can provide a silhouette size of approximately 30%-60% larger than standard diamond cuts.
