History of the Emerald Cut Diamond

As one of the oldest diamond shapes in history, the emerald cut is definitely one to be admired. With its sleek and modern architecture, this diamond has been worn by women for centuries. The emerald shape is known for having a one-of-a-kind sparkle and shine that is unlike any other.

Tracing back as far as the 1500s, the emerald cut diamond has an interesting history. Named after the emerald gemstone, this style was made famous due to its iconic shape. Emeralds were the first stones to be carved in this fashion, in order to prevent chips and cracks in the soft stone. Diamond cutters took notice of the clean lines and symmetry of this technique and began incorporating it into their own diamond cutting work to create beautiful pieces.

The emerald cut diamond rose to fame again in the 1920s during the art deco period. Art deco is an artistic style known for its unique geometric form. This time period admired emerald cut diamonds for their elegant and contemporary designs.

Now you can find women all over the world sporting emerald cut engagement rings, including celebrities like Beyoncé and Eva Longoria. Paired with other gemstones or worn by itself, this diamond is perfect for someone who cherishes its vintage history. Here are some of our Brian Gavin Diamond emerald-cut rings that you will never want to take off.

Yellow Diamond Engagement Rings

If you are looking for an engagement ring with the durability of a diamond combined with the individualism of a gemstone, a yellow diamond ring may be the perfect choice for you. Also known as the canary diamond, yellow diamonds have become increasingly popular over the decades. This stone offers beautiful and unique hues while also being an affordable, colored diamond option.

What causes the yellow coloring in these exquisite diamonds is the introduction of nitrogen during the formation process. Colored diamonds add up to only .0001% of all mined diamonds, which makes it a precious and exclusive stone! Celebrities such as Kelly Clarkson, Heidi Klum, and Carrie Underwood can be spotted rocking this style of engagement ring, and so can you! Here are some of our favorite yellow diamond engagement rings that your special someone will cherish forever.

A Love Worth Waiting For: Robert And Monica

When it comes to love, we believe everyone has a soulmate – that special, perfect someone who’s somewhere in this crazy world looking for them. No matter how long it takes for your paths to cross, you instantly recognize the moment a person is meant for you. It feels like all the pieces start to fall into place, and all the time you spent waiting will finally feel worth it.

For Robert, that’s exactly what he felt when he met Monica for the first time.

“We knew each other through a mutual friend for years, but neither of us thought of crossing the line because of our friendship.” – Robert

As the couple spent more time together and grew closer, Robert knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Monica. But as a merchant mariner at sea, it was a difficult task to see diamonds in-person. So, he reached out to our stellar team at Brian Gavin Diamonds and enlisted our help in finding the perfect ring for the woman he has waited for his entire life.

“Although I was uneasy about buying a diamond online, Jamie was patient and reassuring about the entire process. Jamie answered MANY emails and guaranteed me that the diamond would be magnificent and stunning.” – Robert

After many ongoing conversations with Jamie and our diamond experts, Robert decided on a breathtaking custom engagement ring that best reflected his future fiancée’s personality and preferences. With a beautiful split shank with diamonds surrounding the band, we’re not surprised that Monica said yes to Robert and their new life together!

“The ring is beautiful and did not disappoint. The Brain Gavin team went above and beyond.” – Robert

As Robert arrived home from his most recent 120-day tour on a ship at sea, Jamie made sure the ring was shipped to Robert & Monica’s house in Las Vegas, NV. The very next day, Robert & Monica went down to the Colorado River – right below the Hoover Dam – and started taking pictures. After ten attempts to set the camera timer and run out into the river where Monica was standing, Robert had the timing down to ask the all-important question.

After a joyful “Yes” in the middle of a river, Monica stood beaming, star-struck by the beauty of the ring Robert had designed just for her.

A Love Meant To Be: Andrew And Emily

Andrew and Emily’s story began when these two lovebirds met through an internship at their church. The early days of their relationship were straight out of a modern-day fairy tale. They started off as friends, but, as time went by, they started spending more time together at and outside of work.

For the sake of their incredible friendship, the couple initially put their feelings aside, but as they grew closer, it became hard to deny the chemistry that crackled between them. Everything changed on an unforgettable ski trip to Breckenridge, CO, as Andrew realized he would regret not asking out the girl of his dreams!

The couple’s first few months of dating were challenging due to their long-distance relationship. They made it work by creating a series of “destination dates” wherein they met for a long weekend in different cities. For Andrew, this chapter of their lives gave him the inspiration he needed to plan a beautiful proposal: they would relive their past adventures while creating new ones.

To pop the question, Andrew planned a date for Emily over New Year’s Day. Spanning two days, the couple would make 10 special stops, and Andrew crafted a letter for Emily to read at each location. Knowing his future fiancée might catch on to his plan, Andrew attempted to throw Emily off by telling her he wouldn’t have a ring in time and that it would be the last time they could go out for a while since he had to prepare for his CPA exam.

  It worked! Emily had no idea it would be the day she always remembered.  

With the help of Emily’s family, Andrew’s future fiancé started off her morning by “running an errand” to the church, only to find her first letter waiting. It explained she was about to embark on a walk down memory lane, reliving some of their best times together.

The next stop was a lake house where the couple had their first conversation and the start of their friendship. Upon arrival, Andrew surprised her with a romantic dinner, and the two talked for hours.

Before ending their night, Andrew took Emily to Mozart’s Coffee Roasters, the site of their first date. There, she found a letter with a quiz about the order and location of their first five dates – their “destination dates” when they lived in different cities. Once Emily filled it out, Andrew sent her a text with a picture: two plane tickets to Denver, Emily’s favorite city and where Andrew knew Emily was The One.

Tickets in hand, the couple raced home to pack everything up for our early flight the next morning, just in time for New Years, Emily’s favorite holiday.

When the couple arrived in Denver, they spent their day at some of Emily’s favorite places before heading to Breckenridge for the final surprise. The couple ended their day with a walk around Blue River Plaza, a beautifully lit area of Breckenridge, where Andrew read the final letter. By the end of the letter, Andrew got down on knee to ask if Emily would spend the rest of her life with him. Of course, she said yes!

To express his love for Emily, Andrew decided on a Kristin Split Shank Halo setting with a Round Brian Gavin Blue center stone. This dazzling custom split shank halo diamond engagement ring features a 1.25 carat Brian Gavin Signature diamond melee that shines brightly, even from afar! The couple was blown away by the detailed work that went into making this ring sparkle and how the melee diamonds on the sides shined so vibrantly.

At the moment, Andrew and Emily are in the exciting process of wedding planning, and we wish nothing but the best for this couple!

Our team at Brian Gavin Diamonds know better than most people about the hesitation and pressure of finding the perfect engagement ring for a significant other. With a vast variety of diamonds to choose from, our team of expert diamond consultants guides customers through the process to ensure they can find a ring their future life partner will love.
