Australian Customer Thrilled with 18K Yellow Gold "Tara" Diamond Engagement Ring by Brian Gavin

Luke contacted us via email in September from Australia enquiring about our beautiful Tara 3 sided diamond pave engagement setting. He also wanted to know if we shipped to Australia, which of course we do!

For the center stone, he originally requested more information about some of the diamonds on our virtual database. Catherine explained the superior light performance and brilliance of our Brian Gavin Signature hearts and arrows diamonds and he was sold! He selected a 0.75 carat stone from our Advance Brian Gavin Signature hearts and arrows inventory, and while we waited for it to come in from the factory we started the setting so that we could meet Luke’s requested ship date.

Hi Catherine, Thank you so much for an absolutely amazing ring, the ring is even better than I imagined! I received it at the beginning of the week which works out perfect as my partner and I fly out this weekend for our holiday. It will make our holiday very special. Will update how the proposal goes. Thanks again for your help, Luke.

We received the following email last week along with the beautiful proposal pictures featured in the gallery below:

Hi Catherine, The holiday and proposal in Vanuatu went very well, I have attached photos of the setting where I proposed and my fiancé, she loves her ring and fits perfect. Thank you again for your help we are both very impressed with the ring and will be purchasing wedding bands from Brian Gavin Diamonds in the future. Thanks, Luke.

Customer Uses Hearts Image of her Brian Gavin Diamond as Wedding Monogram!

In September 2013, Francisco (Damien) contacted us, interested in purchasing a diamond from us to set into a setting he had already purchased. Katie worked him and helped him to select a 1.12 G VS2 Brian Gavin Signature hearts and arrows diamond. He then sent in the setting and we set the diamond here for him.

Katie,

The Proposal went so much better than initially planned!.. It was an amazing and emotional moment for the both of us.

I Proposed to Monica on Sunday at Point Lobos which is a gorgeous State Reserve along California's Coast Line. I choose Point Lobos because it has a deep meaning to Monica and I. We went on a casual hike and walked to a favorite spot of ours which has a great vista of the rocky coastline and Pacific Ocean. There we stopped to take in the view and while she was distracted with a pair of binoculars, I quickly set up my camera's tripod around ear level and placed a small speaker which was connected to my ipod… I hit play and with our song in the background I proposed.

The timing couldn't have been better because at that same moment another couple was walking by, and one was a photographer. They captured the moment from a distance, giving us our privacy, and got some great shots. We are forever grateful for their kindness. I have attached a few of the photos they emailed us.

Monica absolutely loves the Ring… she cannot stop commenting on the uniqueness of the setting and the amazing light performance the diamond gives off.

Thank you again for all your assistance! Best Regards, Francisco

PS.  It sounds like Monica will be contacting you in the future in regards to my wedding band. :-)

Sure enough Monica contacted us for his band and selected a Platinum Sawyer men’s wedding band by Sholdt. A truly magnificent piece!!

They decided to use the hearts pattern of their beautiful diamond as their monogram!! Images are below in the gallery:

Hi Katie,

Just wanted to give you a quick look at our wedding day. Once we have our photos from our photography we can send some better shots. Our theme was hearts and arrows based off my diamond. We incorporated it as a monogram; it worked perfectly. Monica

Canadian Customer is Wowed by her Brian Gavin Signature Blue Diamond

Kayla contacted us from Canada via our website as she had been looking at diamonds locally and was having a bad experience.

Hello! I had a pretty horrid experience purchasing a diamond locally (from the jewelry store I work at), but thankfully I got a refund. Pretty sad situation, but I am glad to be starting fresh with the help of Pricescopers. Your site came highly recommended.

She wanted to keep the setting that he had proposed with for sentimental reasons. She was originally nervous about getting a diamond with fluorescence but Catherine worked with her to select a beautiful 1.20 carat Brian Gavin Signature Blue.

Catherine it's absolutely beautiful! I was worried about the I color but it is so white looking I wouldn't have even thought it was I color.  Wow. It almost looks like it's vibrating with light. I can't even describe it. Wow wow wow. I am so happy with it. I haven't had a chance to view it in direct sunlight as its super overcast but so far so good (how about so far so amazing). I am going to school tonight and am leaving it for my fiance to find.  I will let you know his response because he hated the last 3. Kayla

Once Kayla’s fiance saw the stone she wrote in:

Jordan loved it.He sent me this text after he looked at it. "It looks like a perfect cut diamond. Like in the movies". Thank you guys so much! Kayla

Magnificent Custom Platinum Bezel Set Lever Back Earrings with Milgrain from Brian Gavin

Lucy contacted us via live chat in early August asking us if we would set diamonds that had been purchased elsewhere. Jamie explained that we were willing to do so but that the diamonds would need to be insured. She had 4 diamonds that she wanted to send in to have us create custom lever back bezel set earrings with milgrain – two 1.50 carat and two 0.34 carat round ideal cut diamonds. She emailed in some inspiration pictures and we created the CAD renderings for her to approve. The project took a little longer than expected due to the intricate design and fine bezel work, but the result was stunning!!

Hi Jamie, I received the diamond earrings today. You’re right they were worth the wait. They are beautiful! The finish is excellent! The setting helps to enhance the sparkle in the diamonds. Regards, Lucy

Irish Customer Selects Brian Gavin to Create his Custom Platinum Diamond Engagement Ring and Wedding Band

Jonathan contacted us in October 2013 via Live Chat from Ireland with questions about our Brian Gavin Signature hearts and arrows diamonds. Jamie continued to work with him as he navigated through his different options. It took him  almost a year to finalize his decision of purchasing a magnificent 1.732 D VS2 Brian Gavin Signature hearts and arrows diamond and a custom engagement ring and matching band featuring channel set Brian Gavin Signature hearts and arrows diamond melee. His journey is written in his own words below!

I started looking for a diamond in May 2013. I knew very little. I went to the 2 best jewellers in Northern Ireland, a jewellers in Manchester England and various UK websites such as 77diamonds.com and qualitydiamonds.com. I realized that online was the best way to get the best diamond for my money. At that stage I had no idea about EGL certificates but did learn about GIA XXX cut. That’s what I wanted 1 carat GIA xxx D colour VS2 as I couldn’t risk it not being eye clean.

I then progressed to USA websites and looked at bluenile, whiteflash and highperfomancediamonds. I reviewed them all as well as independent websites truthaboutdiamonds (Michael Fried) now diamondpro and niceice (Todd Gray). As independents they both told me that Brian Gavin H and A was the very best diamond you could buy.

I was sold and then had to save for a year and a bit and find a 1 plus carat D VS2. Of course I asked Jamie a million questions in between times by phone and e mail. I ended up with a 1.732 D VS2 Brian Gavin Signature hearts and arrows diamond.

The setting was also a nightmare as we simply couldn’t find anything either of us liked anywhere then BG custom made one for us exactly as we wanted. I also ordered the wedding band at the same time so they were exactly the same.

Sarah-Louise knew we were going away but not where to and not when until a couple of weeks before hand. I told her at the airport that it was New York. We stayed at the Trump Soho and went to the Empire state building that night then on to Restaurant Daniel in Manhattan where I proposed.

I could write book on diamonds but I’m done for now until I need a wedding band. Jonathan.

Brian Gavin Honored to Create 20th Anniversary 3 Stone Diamond and Sapphire Right Hand Ring

Jane contacted us via Live Chat in May. She wanted to reset her mother’s 2.37 ctw round brilliant diamond into a custom designed ring in time for her 20th wedding anniversary in October.

She had been referred to our company by a loyal customer who felt that Brian would be the best person to work with. Her husband wanted to handle all aspects of the project and asked that we facilitate him working directly with Brian Gavin. She wanted a 3 stone right hand ring with blue sapphires on either side of the center stone. She said that the diamond was old and seemed to have a few chips, and wanted to discuss a possible recut prior to designing and creating the ring.

The diamond was sent in and Lesley got in touch with CJ. Brian had examined the diamond and felt that a recut would improve the performance of the diamond. The finished weight was 2.05 ct with a diameter that went from 8.37mm to 8.18mm. The pictures in the gallery below are testament to that!

Regarding the design of the ring, Jane had told CJ that she wanted a ring that was clean, classic, bold (not delicate) with all 3 stones bezel set and with a low profile. We selected two 6.5mm diamond cut blue sapphires and then CJ left the actual design of the ring to us. He was pleased with the first CAD rendering and instructed us to cast the ring in platinum.

We heard from Jane:

Lesley, greetings – I hope you are well. I got the 3-stone ring on our anniversary Wednesday. It certainly is beautiful!

She posted on a consumer forum and received the following comment which really sums it up:

I find your ring especially attractive because of the combination of modern (highly polished, sturdy yet elegant feel) and very classic ( 3-stone, polished filigree in the basket). Your husband has excellent taste!

Enjoy the gallery below!

Brian Gavin Customer Thrilled with her Triple Strand Pearl Necklace

At the beginning of August our loyal customer Danielle contacted Jamie:

Does Brian Gavin do pearl necklaces? I can't seem to find any on the website. If not do you have any recommendations?

She had a special event to attend on Sunday 10/19 and wanted three rows of pearls 18”, 16” and 14”, all attached to a single clasp. She emailed us an inspiration picture and we got to work to source options for her. She wanted the primary color to be black and the accent to be a lavender color. We emailed her 3 options using 5.5 – 6mm fresh water pearls (see picture below) and she was captivated by the red pearls in Option #3!

The pearls were strung and the finishing touch was a very elegant silver clasp. She was thrilled with the result!

Hi Leslie and Jamie,

Here are some photos of me and my awesome new pearls. So far I've worn them with a gown, office wear, and jeans!!! They are so versatile and different. I've gotten so many compliments from people. So glad you always accommodate my non-traditional side.

Brian Gavin Classic Tiffany Style Solitaire Continues to be a Huge Hit…

Sue called in to our offices in September. She was coming up for a big birthday and was shopping for a diamond upgrade. She was extremely nervous to spend a large amount without having seen the diamond first. She ordered a magnificent 2.54 I VS1 Brian Gavin Signature hearts and arrows diamond and had us set it in our Classic tiffany style half round setting with a matching band.

Oh happy day!!! My husband and I picked up the box at Fedex and opened it in the car. The first thing he said was you’re going to get mugged! I didn’t say anything because I was speechless. Even though I knew exactly what I wanted for my big birthday diamond upgrade and I had done tons of research, I still worried a little about spending so much money on a diamond and a setting that I had never seen in person. Well I didn’t need to worry. It is the most beautiful diamond that I have ever seen and the engagement ring setting and wedding band are simply exquisite. I immediately put on my new rings and we took them out on the town to lunch and running errands. The stone looks magnificent in every lighting situation. It even out sparkles the Hearts on Fire diamonds in my old ring. My sincere thanks to Denise for making this such an easy transaction, to Jenny for providing the gorgeous glamour shots, and to Brian Gavin for selecting such incredible diamonds. You will be hearing from me in the future when I am ready to buy diamond bands to accompany my new ring and when I hopefully convince my husband that he needs a new diamond and platinum wedding band. You guys really do do big rocks and you do them right. With much appreciation and happiness, Sue

Happy Customer Proposes in Hong Kong With a Brian Gavin Diamond Engagement Ring

Tom registered on our site in mid-May and Denise immediately emailed him to see how we could assist him. He told us that he was looking for a 1.2-1.5 carat ideal cut solitaire in one of our standard settings. By the beginning of June he was ready to purchase. Like many of our customers, he was in a time crunch. He was due to meet the future bride’s parents the following weekend in Hong Kong and a proposal was being planned for around the same time.

The natural choice for Tom was a gorgeous 1.346 ct. Brian Gavin Signature Hearts and Arrows Round Diamond set in our Tapered Tiffany Style Half Round setting. We got to work and shipped the ring out as soon as we possibly could. When we followed up with him he said this.

Many thanks for everything Denise. She said yes!

We congratulated him and he responded with this and eventually the photos below.

Thank you! We took a couple of us together afterwards. I will send them over if you would like to see in the next few days when she returns from Hong Kong. Thank you so much for all your help and advice. The service I have had from Brian Gavin and yourself has been superb.
