Alexa called in last July to start the process of looking for an engagement diamond. We worked together and selected two that we sent to the appraiser, Martin Fuller in Virginia for them to view. They ended up purchasing a 2.047 I SI1 Brian Gavin Signature Blue Diamond set into a Customized Platinum setting featuring a full eternity Novela shank with the Truth head. We shipped the ring to her fiance Brian and waited to hear from Alexa when he proposed. He held on to it for a little while and we received the following e-mail and fabulous proposal video from Alexa a few days ago:
Hi Lesley! Brian crashed the Secret Santa gift exchange last night that my friends and I do in New York every year (we all went to NYU for undergrad) to propose. He and I live in DC, so I had no idea he and I were even in the same state. It was amazing, I was totally surprised, and the ring is sooooooooo gorgeous. I can't believe it's actually mine. It's way more beautiful in person than I had ever thought it would/could be! Everyone was in love with it, and the boyfriend of one of my friends who was also there asked me to give him your contact info. Thank you so much for everything! My friends took a video and we uploaded it to youtube. You may appreciate the confusion I expressed at first as to why my secret Santa had wrapped my present in a Brian Gavin box. Thanks again for everything! Alexa P.
