Brendon and Roshi: A Love That’s For Shore

Love has a funny way of showing itself. Sometimes it’s the first kiss or looking into the sunset together. “For me, it was at dinner on our first date, when she looked at my plate and asked, ‘Are you going to finish that?’” our customer Brendon joked when sharing his own love story.

Brendon and Roshi met on a popular online dating site and spent two and a half years together before he decided to pop the question with a custom, sparkly Brian Gavin Diamonds ring.

Brendon began the daunting task of online diamond buying. “Confusing and overwhelming at the onset,” is how he described his initial search before landing on the Brian Gavin Diamonds website. Brendon wanted the ring to be a perfect fit, and we were up for the task.

Brendon and Roshi went ring shopping months prior to his online search, giving him inspiration for her ring. While keeping in mind the ring they had once admired with lotus petal prongs, he shared his vision with our team to make Roshi’s custom-designed ring as meaningful and beautiful as ever.

“Jamie and the rest of the crew were nothing short of stellar in every regard. I had high expectations, and they delivered,” he said.

The Proposal

The couple was on their annual family trip with Brendon’s family in Kauai, Hawaii, but Roshi had no idea that day would take such a dazzling turn.

The morning of the proposal, Brendon suggested a relaxing hike on the beach. Hand in hand, the two made their way to a secluded beach where Brendon had planned for a photographer to capture their engagement on camera.

In Roshi’s own words:

"I set off along the beach, walking away from Brendon and staring off into the sunset. After walking for what seemed like a long while, I turned around to face him, wondering why he was so silent. It took me a second to register what was happening as I saw him perched on one knee, smiling from ear-to-ear, a tiny box in hand.”

"

Joyfully, Roshi ran back toward her love and in a burst of excitement accidentally gave Brendon her right hand instead of the left. She hurriedly switched hands so the diamond could find its rightful home.

After the shock wore off, Roshi noticed not only was the other beachgoer a photographer documenting the whole experience but also that the rest of Brendon's family watching the entire proposal. Now that Brendon could breathe a sigh of relief, he, his bride-to-be and family made their way to a private dinner to celebrate.

Throughout the dinner, Roshi couldn't help but stare at her new Brian Gavin Diamonds ring. “My ring sparkles brilliantly with dainty classic simplicity and a flare of unique elegance,” she said.

 

Stories like these keep us focused on designing the highest quality rings for couples taking on forever together. We were so happy we could be part of this magical day and wish both Roshi and Brendon an eternity of happiness.

Joseph & Vanessa: The Ingredients to a Perfect Proposal

Every wedding begins with an engagement and the details behind proposals are unique, and completely personal, to each couple. Some proposals are spontaneous, sealed with courage, a ring and a floor to kneel on. Other proposals are methodically, with the ring holder planning every minute of the event. Today’s story details Joseph, our scrupulously sentimental customer, who knew exactly how to pull off a truly one-of-a-kind proposal to his girlfriend Vanessa.

Joseph and Vanessa met in college, where they both felt an instant connection. Over a lovely pasta dinner, the two found that they couldn’t stop talking on their first date. The first date led to an immediate second, and before they knew it, Joseph and Vanessa made their relationship “official” by the end of the weekend.

“I knew she was the one for me and there was no hesitation to look ahead at all that was to come with this special person I was so lucky to get to know,” Joseph said when thinking of their first date. They were the same thoughts he’d have leading up to their engagement night.

Being the meticulous planner that he was, Joseph visited local jewelers and combed online sites for 18 months in search of the perfect diamond. “Brian Gavin was the only place where I found all Signature cut diamonds; always meeting my picky standards as well as the AGS triple zero. As soon as I saw Brian Gavin Blue, I immediately fell in love with it and knew Vanessa would love it, too,” he said.

The BGD team did their best to find Joseph the exact Brian Gavin Blue diamond he wanted. Our team worked to design “The Vaness” setting to accommodate the 1.37ct H VVS2 Brian Gavin Blue stone, featuring a pave diamond twist on each side.

 

Professional, “yet friendly and concise,” are the three words Joseph used to describe our team’s service. “They never guided me wrong. Even for the engraving they told me it would be too small to see with the naked eye and they didn’t want to take my money for nothing. Honesty was refreshing,” he exclaimed.

“[The ring] was ready for pick-up two months before the proposal date. Communication was always very prompt,” Joseph remembered. Once the ring shipped, our team eagerly waited for news of the couple’s proposal.

Joseph’s knack for personalization didn’t stop with the ring; he dreamed up a larger than life proposal, too. A nautical limo would set sail on the banks of the Saint-Lawrence River in Montreal at sunset, stocked with champagne, a guitar, 36 roses to signify 36 months together, and “The Vanessa” ring, of course.

The centerpiece of the evening was a custom menu, created by Joseph, which signified a special milestone with every course using food from each restaurant. Pasta from the date where it all began, slices from the pizzeria where Vanessa agreed to be his girlfriend, Portuguese-style chicken from the spot they said, “I love you,” their first date — a feast baked in their favorite moments from the last three years.

Nervous but ready, Joseph got down on one knee to propose. Vanessa shares the romantic moment with us:

“I was shocked and overcome with emotion but managed to get a ‘yes’ out, completely overjoyed! It was the perfect, most romantic setting. Once all of the kissing and hugging was done and I finally took the time to look at what he had slipped on my finger, I saw the most beautiful elegant ring ever! I could not have imagined anything better. I loved the original color of the diamond as the last rays of hit it. Joseph definitely went all out and I could not have

asked for a better proposal, a better ring or a better partner.”

Vanessa’s ring was like nothing she’s seen before, which made it all the more special. “I would say it is a unique and brilliant engagement ring that gets many compliments and will be a heirloom for our future family,” Joseph remarked.

“I look most forward to finally marrying my best friend and being surrounded by all the people I care about, knowing we will have a lifetime of happiness together to enjoy,” Vanessa excitedly shared. The two are set to tie the knot in August of 2018 and dream of a honeymoon in Greece.

We’re thankful that Brian Gavin Diamonds got to be one ingredient in Joseph and Vanessa’s love story. Visit our website to learn about our custom rings and make a setting in your own namesake.

BGD Saves the Day for Customers During Hurricane Harvey

After eight years of business, Brian Gavin Diamonds has established an incredible customer base from around the globe. While our sparkle can be spotted on hands and in jewelry armoires around the world, few fans realize we’re located in Houston, Texas. Over the past few weeks, the entire world's eyes were on our city, and the unity we saw during Hurricane Harvey changed our city and outlook.

Brian Gavin drove more than five hours to arrive at a FedEx in College Station to deliver seven packages to expecting customers during Hurricane Harvey.

Brian Gavin drove more than five hours to arrive at a FedEx in College Station to deliver seven packages to expecting customers during Hurricane Harvey.

While we deeply feel for our less fortunate neighbors, we’re beyond grateful that our headquarters was left unscathed by the wrath of Harvey. Aside from the city’s catastrophic flooding, Harvey caused one large issue: a halt on all shipments leaving Houston. With proposals and weddings planned around the world, founder Brian Gavin could not sit idly by in mailroom limbo. In the midst of a natural disaster, we still couldn’t bear to disappoint our customers.

“There was one person getting married on Saturday and needed the rings,” our vice president director of marketing Danny Gavin told JCK Online. “It was scary. FedEx, UPS, everything was shut down.”

Despite Hurricane Harvey, Brian Gavin Diamonds founder drives to FedEx shipment center to deliver customer orders during Houston's Hurricane Harvey.

Photo of flood waters captured by Brian Gavin while driving to College Station's FedEx.

As the storm stalled over Houston for days, Brian was emboldened to get jewelry shipped on schedule. He embarked on a road trip to College Station, driving five and half hours in total, to bring seven packages to FedEx. While many roads were flooded and traffic was abundant, Brian was proud to have safely saved the day for expecting customers.

Thumbs up for great customer service! Through flood waters and traffic jams, Brian safely arrived at FedEx in College Station.

A few were kind enough to share their feedback on Trustpilot:

These folks are the finest in their business! The diamond rings arrived exactly on the day they had been promised. Sound easy? Not in this case. The management and staff at BGD had to contend with the chaos of Hurricane Harvey; they went above and beyond to get the rings out of Houston and into our hands! My girlfriend and I rate the matching platinum engagement and wedding pave rings as works of art, and the 1.5 ctw Hearts & Arrows diamond is breathtaking. Thank you all! You are a great team.

—Frank S.

Order coincided with Hurricane Harvey, so admit I was a little concerned…especially given that the ring was a key component of a planned event. [BGD replied] to requests and met advertised shipment and delivery schedule — despite Houston's storm of the century!!! Highly recommend Brian Gavin for securing that special ring for that special event.

—E.

“Houston is an amazing place. It’s an example of a city that no matter your race or nationality, people are working together and it’s an amazing thing to see,” said Danny in his JCK Online interview. Aside from having a city with such a large heart, we are touched by the countless customer emails and warm social media messages received in the wake of the storm. (One former customer even invited the BGD family to stay in their Sonoma, California, home if we needed a temporary resistance!)

Brian was thrilled to send off sparkle to expectant BGD customers despite the storm.

Even the most successful companies would be nothing without loyal customers – we feel that through and through. Purchasing jewelry, especially engagement rings, is often an emotional transaction because these items are tokens of love. We’re so grateful to be part of your love stories, marriages, celebrations, and special milestones that make life matter. We would not be where we are without you.

Thank you to our wonderful customers for making our Houston headquarters a place of happiness, even in difficult and dark times. Let us remember that aside from a pristine cut, it first takes pressure to make a diamond shine. Houston’s faced its fair share of pressure, but the clouds have finally cleared, and the city will continue to sparkle brighter than ever before.

James and Casey's Proposal at the Mayan Ruins

They say best friends make the best partners in crime and in Casey and James’s case – partners for life.  Casey and James first met through mutual friends during their years together in college. At the beginning of their friendship, James was a little unconvinced that they would be a good match since their personalities were so different. “It wasn’t long until we found ourselves doing everything together from watching Modern Family to getting late night breakfast,” James said.

Fast forward seven years and James is searching online for “hours each week” to learn about diamonds, the 4C’s and some of the more intricate aspects of finding the perfect stone. “Brian Gavin is one of the most well-regarded jewelers in the industry. Equally as important, the diamonds in [Brian Gavin Diamonds’] inventory are of a much better quality than most of the competition for an equal or sometimes even a better price,” declared James after much research.

James knew from the moment he contacted our team that we offered “unmatched exemplary service” he could trust. “Emily and the entire Brian Gavin Diamonds team was incredibly helpful in answering the specific questions I had and offered further recommendations.”

With selecting a custom and engraved Tapered Classic Style Half Round 18K White Gold, James started to planning how he would pop the question. Since Casey and James are both avid travelers, he knew a trip to the tropics would set the stage for a perfect proposal.

Casey and James planned a trip to the Costa Maya, Mexico, to see the Mayan ruins. “Proposing in front of the Mayan ruins would be particularly meaningful and would exemplify how I wanted our love to endure as these thousands of years old pyramid-like buildings had,” he described. “From there it was just a matter of planning the logistics and managing to keep the ring a secret from the one person in the world I don't keep any secrets from,” James continued.

The two were trekking through the ruins with their tour group when James asked his friends to take a picture of him and Casey. Casey nervously rushed their friends to hurry with the picture because she was nervous the tour group would leave them behind. Little did she know, James also had a much larger reason to be nervous.

As the two posed for a photo, he dropped to one knee and said the words Casey was least expecting in that moment. Casey shared the intimate moment with us:

He said "Casey" in the most genuinely beautiful way, and I knew he was serious. I walked up to him shaking and in tears. I felt like I was blacking out, or in a dream, and I missed some of the things he said… but I heard his last words: “I love you today, I'll love you tomorrow, and if you let me, I'll love you for the rest of my life.” I said "YES,” and then the most beautiful ring was placed on my finger!

Casey was elated by James’ shocking proposal and her new engagement ring. “It was my dream ring come true! It honestly sparkled more than anything I had ever seen before,” she exclaimed. “The way the cut reflected the light was amazing, and I couldn't stop staring at it,” Casey continued.

James didn’t leave any detail untouched and made sure to personalize the ring with a sweet engraved message, “Head & Heart.” “When James showed me the personal engraving on the inside of the band, I cried at how sweet it was. It is beyond perfect, and I absolutely LOVE my ring,” Casey expressed joyously.

The newly engaged couple are already making plans for the day they say I do. While the two look forward to dancing the night away with family and friends, they are counting down to journeying on a whimsical honeymoon abroad. As such avid adventurers, it’s only natural that Casey and James’ dream honeymoon is a “mix between adventure and relaxation.” Their destination is undecided, but we know these two travelers will leave their mark on the world together.

We’re so thankful to have worked with Casey and James on their unique proposal. We’re even happier to have provided a special token that will travel miles and miles with Casey and James as a symbol of their love. If you loved Casey’s solitaire ring, see more on our website.

Summer and Dustin's Quest for the Perfect Sapphire Engagement Ring

If you're thinking of signing up for a dating app, our latest customer story is ammunition to fuel your decision. After connecting on a popular dating app in January 2016, Summer and Dustin finally met.

Dustin and Summer Brian Gavin Diamonds Sapphire Ring

Dustin and Summer had been living across the street from each other for two years but it took a little technology for them to make a connection. After a quick text exchange, Summer and Dustin arranged a date at a coffee shop on a cold January day. “The conversation flowed making the date go so quickly that it led to a second date the very next day,” Summer described. “The second date led to several more dates, which led to falling in love and an eventual proposal.”

Their relationship blossomed and it was not long afterward that Dustin spent extensive time researching different ways to propose. Brian Gavin Diamonds was the first thing that came to Dustin’s mind after his brother recommended us. “I was hesitant as Summer and I lived in Dallas and Brian Gavin Diamonds appeared to specialize in diamonds in Houston. After several visits to many reputable and recommended Dallas jewelers, we still were unable to find anyone capable of creating what we wanted,” Dustin admitted.

Dustin was in search of a sapphire engagement ring, set in a diamond halo. “As soon as I had my first call with Brian Gavin and I mentioned ‘untreatable sapphire,’ Brian knew immediately what I wanted,” Dustin said. We were honored to learn than Dustin felt we were “steps beyond the other jewelers available” throughout his search for the perfect ring.

After being connected to our team, fate stepped in to lead Dustin to a specific untreated sapphire that was on its way to a gem show in Hong Kong—it just so happened that Brian would be attending the very same show. He ensured that he would inspect the stone up close for Dustin to see if it was truly the perfect one. “The anticipation of waiting to find out if we received the stone was exciting. Heather was great to work with and provided regular updates, but the message from Heather with iPhone photos of the stone made the entire process very exciting.”

While Brian helped in finding the Sapphire, Dustin focused on planning the perfect proposal. Dustin left love letters for Summer to lead her to the Marie Gabrielle Gardens. “When I arrived at Marie Gabrielle there was another [final] note tied to a pole with another scripture,” she mused. The scripture read, “I always say I want someone I can just sit on a bench and do nothing with.” Summer took the hint, sat on the bench and waited. Shortly after, Dustin walked down a long pathway toward her to pop the question.

Summer and Dustin both adored their new ring. “Words cannot even express the beauty of the ring. We had a vision of the ring and had been involved in the process from the initial design to selecting the sapphire stone to the final design around the stone, but the final piece exceeded all expectations,” they shared.

Margaret's Brian Gavin Blue Becomes a Work of Art

Moving to a different country is a huge accomplishment in and of itself, so Margaret only found it appropriate to commemorate her 10th anniversary of living in the Netherlands with a beautiful diamond. She searched long hours online looking for the perfect cut with blue fluorescence until stumbled on Brian Gavin Diamonds. Margaret chose a scintillating round stone from our Brian Gavin Blue® line. Her 0.15 G VS1 Brian Gavin Blue® Signature round diamond exhibits a high-level of optical symmetry and superior cut quality, featuring an AGS laboratory grade of “0” ideal for light performance. When it came to making this decision, she knew our diamond was the one. “What more could I want?” Margaret rhetorically questioned. She later decided to choose a pendant to exhibit her diamond and wear it proudly as an emblem of her life in the Netherlands. Margaret has enjoyed wearing her pendant throughout her travels and daily life in the Netherlands. While she gets compliments regularly, she never knew what a conversation started the Brian Gavin Blue® diamond pendant would be. On a visit to Amsterdam with her boyfriend, the couple made a stop at the Electric Ladyland Fluorescent Art Museum. Unlike any museum in the world, the Electric Ladyland is a fully fluorescent museum that invites its guests to be a part of the art. Focused on fluorescent mineral artwork, Margaret expected that the museum was an incredible opportunity to learn about geology in art. Who would have guessed Margaret and her pendant would steal the show? “When the tour guide saw the strong blue fluorescence [in my BGD diamond], he said he’d never seen one like this and called the other visitors for a look,” Margaret proudly remembered. “It was quite a sight, seeming to be an even stronger blue.” Margaret enjoyed the trip so much and received a flourish of compliments from marveling onlookers. The diamond carried a unique beauty in the dark and a magnetic brilliance in the light, making it a truly special choice to commemorate her milestone. “Thank you to the Brian Gavin Diamonds team for helping me find such a spectacular diamond. My jeweler was incredulous to learn that I trusted a company on the internet to buy a diamond but I obviously chose well!” It was such a pleasure to create Margaret’s beautiful diamond together and be a part of her special moment.

Meet BGD’s Youngest Customer

Over the many years that Brian Gavin Diamonds has been in business, we’ve seen and worked with clients of all ages from around the world, but never have we had one as young as Hayden.

We had the chance to help Hayden create a beautiful and unique eternity band to share a little piece of their father-son trip to Thailand for his mother. It was during this Thailand trip that Hayden first became interested in gemstones—at the tender age of six. His father, Adam, describes that Hayden “fell in love with gemstones" after they visited the Gemstone District in Bangkok. The two purchases some small sapphires after looking at hundreds. "Seeing so many sapphires, Hayden learned about the effect of a great cut on the beauty of a gemstone," his father said. "We decided to take some of the sapphires from Thailand and create a diamond and sapphire eternity band for his mom as a memory of our trip,” Adam continued.

The father and son set out on a mission to create the eternity band once returning to the States. “I wanted to ensure we used the most perfectly cut diamonds, which led me to Brian Gavin,” Adam described.

Touched by the sentiment, Brian Gavin created a perfect eternity band using nine Brian Gavin Signature diamonds along with nine of Hayden's sapphires from Thailand. After this creation, Hayden’s fascination continued to grow. He requested a Brian Gavin Diamonds Signature signature round diamond for his seventh birthday and his family did not disappoint.

With five generations of diamond cutters in his family tree, Brian grew up with a fascination for diamond cutting that’s quite similar to Hayden’s own. We loved Hayden’s enthusiasm for diamonds and gemstones so much that we invited him for a personal meet-and-greet with Brian to learn more about the precision and light performance in our Black by Brian Gavin line. After his visit, Hayden walked away with an engraved Black by Brian Gavin hearts and arrow viewer.

“After that visit, Hayden told me he wants to keep upgrading his Brian Gavin diamond every year and present his future fiancé with the final upgraded diamond and a book showing each of the diamonds that led up to the final diamond before engagement.” His father goes on to say, “So, I guess you could say he is a young romantic.”

With a .728 carat diamond in his possession at a young age, some may wonder why Hayden wants to continue to upgrade his stone year after year. Aside from having exceptional taste at such a young age, Hayden is already planning the day he’ll get on one knee with his Brian Gavin Diamonds stone and we look forward to greeting him with open arms on that day!

We’re so happy to have inspired Hayden to continue learning about diamonds and are thankful to have him as a life time customer until the day he says, “I do.” We know Hayden will have a bright future; we're just honored that he's invited us to add to his already brilliant sparkle. If you loved the eternity band Adam and Hayden created, you'll love the similar options on our site.

Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend

Did you know diamonds are the most popular gemstone? The stunning stones are also a symbol of for steadfast love.
