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 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.

We were so happy we could be part of this magical day and wish both Roshi and Brendon an eternity of happiness.
