Handmade 18K White Gold Martini Earrings With Brian Gavin Signature Hearts And Arrows Round Diamonds

Handmade 18K White Gold Martini Earrings With Brian Gavin Signature Hearts And Arrows Round Diamonds Jeanne was searching for the perfect pair of earrings and reached out to the Brian Gavin Diamonds Team through our online live chat. She was nervous about purchasing online, but our Diamond Consultants were there to ease her concerns.

“Saw a positive review on Brian Gavin Diamonds while looking at another beautiful brand that we have purchased from. Having not purchased DIY earrings (diamond and setting selections), I was not comfortable. Husband was urging me to wait – purchase on our next Caribbean cruise – where you could SEE what you were buying. Lesley, our "live chat" rep, was very helpful and made the process smooth. I trusted what she was communicating AND offered a President's Day coupon which made the purchase immediate. I hope that the earrings are as she assured me they would be. My husband is skeptical, but if it is this easy…”

Jeanne picked out the Handmade 18K White Gold Martini Earrings With Signature Hearts And Arrows Round Diamonds. These earrings are designed and created in house by the finest craftsmen according to Brian Gavin’s strictest standards. Once she received her new earrings in the mail, she instantly fell in love!

“Brie, the glamour shots were beautiful!! Picked up the earrings this morning before the Nor'Easter hit with all its might. I LOVE THEM!!! The entire process from serious-purchase browsing to selection (diamonds and settings) to order-placing to now worn was very customer-friendly. Very much a surprise, since it is online. The certificates and product information was better than at the finest jewelers. Very impressed with our first Brian Gavin purchase. Thank you for being the best competitor for some of the finest brands.”

We were so pleased to read this wonderful update from Jeanne and look forward to working with her again in the future!

Parade Design Hera Bridal Band With A 1.072 L VVS1 Brian Gavin Signature Hearts And Arrows Round Cut Diamond

Parade Design Hera Bridal Band With A 1.072 L VVS1 Brian Gavin Signature Hearts And Arrows Round Cut Diamond Caleb and Theresa’s story is like something out of a cute rom-com. They’ve known each other as acquaintances through mutual friends but met once again at a friend’s wedding where everything changed. They went on a few more dates after the wedding and realized they wanted to share their lives together. That’s when Caleb hatched a plan to propose to Theresa on their trip to Europe. All that was missing was the engagement ring.

"I had an idea of what ring design I wanted. We had gone ring shopping only once a year earlier which spawned my idea for this one specifically. It was a Parade Design Hera Bridal Band with a Brian Gavin Signature Hearts and Arrows Round Cut Diamond. I worked with Diamond Consultant, Brie, who was a great help. She was very accommodating and helped narrow my selection to the ring we have now."

The Parade setting has intricate milgrain-etched curves of metal in open space below a tapered band of sparkling diamonds, elevating a six-pronged center stone to perfection and featuring 26 round cut diamond melee (0.16 ctw).

This ring was special to Theresa because she wanted something that stood the test of time and reminded her of her fairytale story. She felt that her input, Caleb’s research and the help of the Brian Gavin Diamonds Team made a ring that captured their feelings for each other.

"I wanted him to pick the one that he felt represented our relationship the most. He did exactly that. And man does it shine too. It doesn’t look like everyone else’s, it makes me feel on top of the world and proud of the man I get to spend the rest of my life with.""

With the ring ready all Caleb had to do now was pop the question. On their trip to Europe, Caleb had an idea of proposing at a castle in Germany, very fairytale-like and romantic. Unfortunately, the castle proposal wouldn’t work out because of the number of tourists and time constraints, so he quickly came up with a plan B that was a slight detour from their hiking path and had a beautiful view.

"Once Theresa calmed down from the height scare and took in the view I started recording. I proposed to her on this snowy cliffside overlooking the castle. She couldn’t believe it was happening and was full of emotion. So much so, she’d didn’t remember much during the actual proposal so I had to go over my speech again where she finally said yes. We took a few more pictures and then hiked down the mountain to celebrate."

We are glad that Caleb trusted us to find the perfect ring for Theresa and his perfect moment in the mountains overlooking the castle in Germany.

Kate's Custom Platinum Crown Style Trellis 3 Stone Ring With Brian Gavin Signature Hearts And Arrows Diamonds

Custom Platinum Crown Style Trellis 3 Stone Ring With Brian Gavin Signature Hearts And Arrows Diamonds Kate has been a long time customer of Brian Gavin Diamonds and has always appreciated our work and attention to detail. She purchased the Platinum Dream Half Eternity Band from us in 2011 and reached out to us again about upgrading her ring around the time of her and her husband’s 13 year anniversary. She knew she wanted a three stone ring, and with the help of the BGD team, we were able to create a custom design just for her!

Kate decided on a Custom Platinum Crown Style Trellis 3 Stone Ring to match her Platinum Dream Half Eternity Band. She chose our Brian Gavin Signature Hearts And Arrows Diamonds for her new ring; a 2.17 H VS2 Center Stone and two .58 H VS2 Side Stones. She sent in her Platinum Dream Half Eternity Band to make sure it was a good match and to have it serviced under our lifetime warranty. Once she received both her rings by mail, she emailed us right away from the parking lot! We felt overwhelmed with happiness when we read Kate’s response to seeing her ring in person for the first time.

I just picked up my package and I'm sitting in the FedEx parking lot shaking and crying!!  It's SO beautiful – I can't even believe it!! I'll write more later, but thank you ALL so much for your help on this stunning ring!!!  You've got me as a customer for life!! 😊

We were overjoyed that Kate was ecstatic with her ring. It means the world to us knowing that our customers receive above and beyond their expectations. What made this story more meaningful was when Kate told us about why this ring was so special.

I also wanted to share a story with you as I'm confident that my three stone ring was made for me.  Also, because I know in the diamond world – you are all about numbers. 😊 My dad was born on 8.3.53 and passed away from cancer a little over 5 years ago (which also happened to be on his birthday 8.3).  It was very sudden and hard on all of us. Anyways, since then, those numbers appear for me in the most random places. When I was designing my ring, I quickly realized that there are so many proportion preferences for a three stone ring and I couldn't decide what was right for me. However, when I calculated the average mm on the diamonds you suggested to figure out the proportion ratio, I realized the center stone was 8.3mm and the two sides were 5.3mm.  In other words- 8.3.53. So, now, not only do I have a beautiful ring to represent my marriage and my three children – but, also another reminder that my dad is always with me as well.

I can't say enough good things about you, Brian and the entire BGD team.  Thank you all again! What a wonderful experience all around! I told my husband maybe someday we will have to make it down to Houston so I can meet you all!

We hope you make it down to Houston soon Kate!

  We followed up with Dustin to hear the proposal story. Not only did all go as planned, but his fiance, Brianna, was so impressed with the ring that she sent us a message as well!  
Hi Brie, this is Brianna! I just wanted to say that the ring is absolutely gorgeous! Dustin did an amazing job picking it out, I honestly was so shocked! I’m not someone who wears jewelry much and I always thought I would have a hard time adjusting to wearing a ring; that is not the case. I absolutely love wearing it, just gives me a beautiful reminder through my day of the wonderful man who gave it to me. I am so incredibly happy! We both look forward to working with you in the future! The wedding band is next on the list! Thanks! Dustin & Brianna
  Congratulations Dustin and Brianna, we wish you the best and are honored to be a part of your story!

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.

Fancy Light Yellow Cushion 1.5ct Diamond Ring

This one-of-a-kind Fancy Light Yellow Cushion ring will have you looking, and feeling, like a movie star.
