Cross’s Maine Gem Museum Collection
In the art world after a great painting is completed it is always framed. The frame is the finishing touch. It enhances and focuses attention. We have selected from among our very finest Maine tourmaline the best color, cut and clarity… gems that simply glow. These we have surrounded with a gallery of pure white diamonds… to perfectly frame these great works of nature’s art. We call these works of gem art framed in diamonds Cross’s Museum Collection.
Follow our Museum Collection online for updates on new introductions every month. Almost every piece in our museum collection is one-of-a-kind. If you see one, you love it, and you want it, you should buy it now… for once it is gone, it is likely gone forever.
This is a Trip
Through the Light Fantastic
Cross’s Twilight Gem and Jewelry Collection
Any gem superbly cut is breathtaking. Twilight-cut gems enter into another dimension. It’s a gem that you don’t simply look at and see the color; it’s a gem you develop a relationship with. There’s an intimate light performance that’s being produced just for you.
In a twilight-cut, it’s as though the gem is playing music, touching and connecting with the observer on a deeper level. A twilight gem has the juxtaposition of two different blocks of color side by side, another color above, and another below. In some places, you’ll get a flash of black or white, and then everything in-between in an assortment of color tones.
The minute you start to move the gem, these little cubes of light flash on and off, and as they flash, the colors are playing with and against one another. Hold the gem still and the performance settles. With the slightest movement, the light show begins again.
Depending on where you are, the performance will be different… Lamplight, sunlight, moonlight – a quieter show, but the gem will still softly perform even under the glow of a full moon.
The colors wink on and wink off. Like listening to the sound of a babbling brook, you’ll never hear the same sound twice… the notes of a twilight-cut gem are different in every performance.
These gems are brilliant, beguiling, and bewitching. They have a way of pulling you into their depths. In our video you can see the slightest touch or movement creates a dazzling array of cubic light… a shimmering dance of shadow, light, and color that moves to its own secret, melody, rhythm, and charm.
