so you get “more diamond” by making the diamond flat yet increasing finger coverage? Um no thanks. I’ll take my deep cut princess any day. A diamond has to have the right proportions for it to sparkle. Why are people always so concerned with just the size?
VintageGirl1020: I like it. Only because I like the “flat” look. I even asked our jeweller to set my centre stone as low as possible (cathedral settings just ain’t my thang). The size thing isn’t really all that important to me but I also like the shape too.
I’m at work so I couldn’t listen to the vid but can one of y’all tell me if they sparkle as nice as other cuts?
His diamonds are similar to Henri Daussi cuts. Shallow, bigger face up, except his look almost completely flat. I would be super concerned it’d break in half like a communion wafer. I have a Daussi setting, but opted for a 3X cut Round Brilliant instead of the HD signature cut. My original jeweler tried to sell me on going for the HD type of cut, but I couldnt help but feel it was just a gimic and I wouldn’t be able to resell down the road. I guess it all depends on whats most important to you. We bought knowing upgrade was an eventual goal and having a well cut MRB will almost always resell with no problems.
I like them… the cut also allows for lower clarity due to the faceting. It reminds me of an Ashoka in a way. I saw a 4 ct Crisscut emerald cut set in a sleek solitaire. It was exquisite and sparkled like crazy!
That said, I totally dislike the Daussi cuts… they look dead in comparison to the Crisscuts. Also, I’m not a fan of the Crisscut rounds, but I do kinda like the cushions…
