Hitting the Jackpot in Real Life: Gary and Talia’s Proposal

The odds were in Gary and Talia’s favor on a summer night in 2013 when the couple met at a casino in Scranton, PA. Sparks instantly flew between the two, and to say the couple came out ahead that night is a bit of an understatement considering they hit the biggest jackpot life can offer – finding their soulmate.

Gary and Talia

Talia made the biggest bet of the night when she decided to start up a conversation with the tall man who caught her eye in a sea of people. Her bet certainly paid off because she knew Gary would be her husband someday. The couple fell hard and fast for each other but soon hit a roadblock. With Gary finishing medical school then moving to Tampa for a residency program, the couple decided to take a leap of faith.

Gary and Talia Proposal

Moving together was already a big step; therefore, it came very naturally for Gary to start looking for an engagement ring. He knew Talia wanted a simple timeless piece that sparkles to the skies and could go with anything she wears. Gary worked with the Brian Gavin Diamond team to pick out the perfect piece that would hold a special place in Talia’s heart forever – a Novela Platinum with a custom Hearts and Arrows Round diamond. The Novela’s "illusion-trim" bead set solitaire with four beads per stone makes any diamond shimmer and sparkle by enhancing its appearance to look larger. The dazzling ring certainly reflects the light that Talia brings into Gray’s life every day.

Talia Ring

In July, the couple celebrated their fifth anniversary at an elegant restaurant in Hyde Park. Little did she know, Talia actually scheduled their engagement photographer when she asked a friend who lived nearby to come by and take a picture of the two in front of a fountain then turned around to see Gary on one knee. Talia immediately started crying and got even more emotional when she saw the inside of the stunning ring was engraved with the date they met, July 10, 2013. Talia could not be happier with the ring Gary picked for her. She swears it sparkles even in the dark and she is constantly told by friends and even strangers that they have never seen a ring sparkle like hers.


Gary and Talia can’t thank the Brian Gavin Diamond team enough for being part of the most exciting moment in their life. The Brian Gavin Diamonds team continues to wish this beautiful couple the best of luck and was grateful to play a role in their journey by providing an amazing ring that they will cherish forever.

We’re happy to work together with you and work on a ring that will shine just like Talia’s by following our website.

Sparkling and Brilliant: Adam's Proposal

At Brian Gavin Diamonds, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with the tools and knowledge necessary for them to make an intelligent and informed decision. We provide a detailed analysis of the diamonds which we offer because we know that doing so separates our diamonds from the myriad of lab graded diamonds. Adam along with all our customers receive an education unparalleled to any other store, so they know they make the right choice when buying an engagement ring. Adam chose a Six Prong Solitaire 14K Gold ring for his fiancé.

Hi Jamie,

I received the ring in the mail yesterday and all I can say is: WOW. I absolutely love both the diamond and the setting, and I have no doubt whatsoever that my future fiancée will too! The comparison between this ring and the first one that I bought elsewhere are night and day, in both color (even though it’s only one grade better it faces up much whiter), and of course, in cut. The amount of sparkle and brilliance is more than I’ve ever seen in a diamond. I honestly could not be happier with it! I also want to thank you and Emily for the time that you put in from start to finish with me. You both always answered any questions that I had and made this a great experience. If anyone asks me for advice on where to get an engagement ring, I know exactly where to send them. Thanks again!

The Brian Gavin Diamond team thoroughly enjoys working with their clients during such a special time in their lives. Jamie and Brian had the great fortune of crafting Dr. Mark’s ring, which left his fiancée speechless upon popping the question. The ring is a custom handmade 14ct Yellow Gold Shank with Platinum.

Dear Brian and Jamie,

I want to thank you both for all your help. The ring you created is beautiful, and she absolutely loves it!

Great job with everything and you will hear from me again when it is time to design the wedding ring!

A Perfect Match: Sahana and Junaid

Sahana and Junaid are an example of the perfect match. They understand each other, have the same goals in life, and respect each other. For perfect match couple, they have a perfect ring waiting for them, and the Brian Gavin team is always happy to be the ring matchmaker for couples.

Junaid and Sahana were amongst the thousands of singles trying their luck at online dating. However, Sahana had not been active on her account in years and decided it was time to cancel her subscription. Upon logging on, Sahana saw the backlog of messages and was overwhelmed by the number but decided to see who has viewed her page recently.

Sahana and Junaid Proposal

There was Junaid, the most recent viewer of Sahana’s profile! Intrigued by Junaid, Sahana searched her messages for a chat from him but didn’t find anything, so she decided to send a message that said, “How dare you visit my profile and not say hi!” Although his excuse that the message got lost in the mail didn’t impress her, there was something special about Junaid that stuck out to Sahana. Right from the beginning, there was an instant connection and their first six-hour phone call confirmed that what they was special.

Although Junaid and Sahana both knew they met their perfect match, the distance between their two cities got in the way of them meeting. Thankfully, Junaid couldn’t wait much longer and booked a flight to visit Sahana soon after. Any apprehensions the couple held prior to meeting were immediately forgotten because the same chemistry they had on the phone was still there in-person.

Sahana and Junaid Yes

Before proposing to the love of his life, Junaid asked Sahana’s parents for her hand in marriage then knew it was time for the pair to pick out a ring. For any couple, the diamond buying process can be a daunting adventure. Junaid and Sahana did not want to purchase from a chain jewelry store and wanted specifically to buy something unique, handcrafted by expert diamond cutters, and from a small business.

After doing countless hours of research and even looking beyond the four C’s, there was truly no stone (no pun intended) that the couple had not turned over. Finally, they found Brian Gavin which was exactly what they were looking for. They were in love with the fact that Brian was a 5th generation diamond cutter from South Africa and took careful precision in each diamond. Sahana picked out the setting and diamond, and the rest was up to Junaid!

Sahana and Junaid Amazed

Junaid wanted everything to be perfect when it came to the proposal, so he recruited one of Sahana’s friends, Omi, to help. He had Omi pretend to be going through a bad breakup and in need of some advice, which led to Sahana and her friend meeting up and going for a walk. Sahana was so enthralled in the conversation and that she had been looking down for most of their walk but noticed they were nearing “her spot,” a place where she comes to reflect and had her first date with Junaid.

When they got to “her spot” that overlooks the San Francisco Bay Bridge, Omi turned Sahana to the right where she saw a well-dressed Junaid. Sahana was completely surprised to see him, and of course, when he got on one knee she said yes and was absolutely thrilled with the ring he had gotten her!

Sahana Ring

The couple chose a Tapered Classic Style Half Round ring with a Brian Gavin Hearts and Arrow 1.1 carat diamond set in 18K rose gold. Junaid still catches Sahana staring at the ring with a smile on her face remembering the special moment they had. The Brian Gavin Diamond family is beyond happy for this wonderful couple and takes pride in giving couples a reason to smile because of the work they have done.

A Trip Full Of Surprises: Daniel and Liz’s Proposal

Whether it’s a simple engagement or a surprise vacation to Barbados, every Brian Gavin engagement ring has a unique story. For Daniel and Liz, their special story has surprises around every corner that will make your heart melt.

Daniel and Liz Ring

After looking at different places and doing his homework, Daniel finally found the perfect ring to propose to his future fiancée. The Brian Gavin Diamonds team educated and provided him with the knowledge that led Daniel to choose the ring he knew symbolized the special bond that he has with Liz. The ring buying process was the easy part for Daniel, but now, he had to pull off the biggest surprise of his life!

The first of many surprises began when Daniel booked Liz a manicure then dropped off a book he put together on her doorstep. A childhood favorite, the book Daniel created was a “choose your own adventure” style book that allows readers to decide where the storyline goes by turning to certain pages. The adventure book took Liz to special destinations in their relationship starting at Columbia University where they met then the restaurant where they had their first date and ending with a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Daniel and Liz

With every turn of a page came a new riddle to decipher. Finally, Liz had one last page to solve, and by using clues throughout the adventure book, she finally realized certain pages spelled out B-A-R-B-A-D-O-S. Being the sweet romantic that he is, Daniel booked a flight to leave the next morning and even coordinated with Liz’s boss to allow her to take time off for their trip.

Upon their arrival in Barbados, Daniel planned a private chartered sailing and snorkeling excursion with the idea to propose to Liz at sunset. Although each day was beautiful, choppy water prevented them from going through with Daniel’s original plan. With the time of their trip starting to dwindle away, Daniel improvised and thought of a brand new plan.

Daniel and Liz Proposal

After a beach day together, Daniel suggested they find somewhere nice to watch the sunset. Without a true destination in mind, Liz and Daniel jumped in the car and found a perfect spot where the waves were crashing against rocks and the sun started to slowly set. Daniel proposed with the perfect backdrop, and Liz was absolutely blown away by the ring’s beauty.

Since the proposal, everyone that Liz has shown the ring to was stunned by how gorgeous it is. According to the couple, those people describe Liz’s ring as one of the most sparkly/brilliant/shiny diamond they’ve ever seen. Daniel puts it best, “when people see the ring it’s not typical, ‘oh that’s a nice ring’ but a kind of wide-eyed stare and wowed look.” To this day, both Liz and Daniel are still in awe of the ring and are so grateful for Brian Gavin Diamond’s efforts in helping them create something that represents their love.

Whether it’s an anniversary, birthday, or even a push present, John and Patara keep coming back to Brian Gavin Diamonds to help mark all of their special milestones. Although each of their unique jewelry pieces has its own special story, John and Patara’s engagement story is a must tell that will melt your heart. Patara and John One summer night, Patara was invited to an early screening of a new Transformers movie with her friend and her friend’s cousin. Patara had always heard stories about her friend’s cute, tall cousin, and upon meeting at the theater, Patara wondered if this was the infamous cousin. Although the two sat next to each other, there wasn’t much time for them to chat and they quickly parted ways after the movie was over.

While Patara was on the phone with her mom, John came home and tried to rush her off the phone, urging her to accompany him for a quick walk. In an effort to not seem rude and hang up abruptly, Patara followed John while continuing to chat with her mother. During their walk, John stopped at a tree that had always been a special place for the two to talk and connect. John sat down, and Patara remained on the phone with her mom. Glancing over she saw John take out one of those plastic containers that you get from a gumball machine. Initially confused, Patara finally realized that something might be happening. She quickly got off the phone and walked over to John. Patara and John Wedding After confessing his love, John explained that he didn’t have enough money to buy her a real ring yet, but still wanted to be with her and got on one knee to propose with a gumball machine ring. With tears in her eyes, Patara said yes as he placed the gumball ring on her finger! Little did she know, John had one more surprise up his sleeve. Remaining on one knee, John pulled out a wooden box that contained a breathtaking engagement ring from Brian Gavin Diamonds. With even more tears running down her face, Patara said yes a second time and accepted her real ring. Like so many, John wanted an easy, stress-free process for buying an engagement ring. After extensive research, he found Brian Gavin Diamonds and was educated about the four C’s. With the expertise of the Brian Gavin Diamonds team helping him, John was able to find the perfect engagement ring for Patara. He selected the Classic Truth ring with an embedded birthstone, which is Patara’s favorite feature! Patara BGD Ring The wonderful experience John received at Brian Gavin Diamonds has kept him coming back to pamper Patara with more beautiful jewelry pieces including earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. She’s certainly a lucky lady!

In a Galaxy Not So Far Away: A Force Awakens Between Corey Beth & Brandon

For many couples, the stars have to align for a magical proposal, but for Corey Beth and Brandon, it was the inspiration from “a galaxy far, far away” that brought them together. While visiting the location of one of their favorite movie scenes (from Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Brandon asked Corey Beth to marry him with an out of this world proposal that absolutely blew her away.

These two lovebirds are both from Galveston, Texas, and grew up together attending the same schools with the same group of mutual friends, but somehow neither of them ever crossed paths. With the help of a dating app, Corey Beth and Brandon finally met at a coffee shop and talked for hours until the coffee shop closed for the night. Knowing that their bond was special, the couple fell in love quickly and got engaged after seven months.

corey beth and brandon

The couple planned a trip to Ireland, and as huge Star Wars fans, they both wanted to venture to Skellig Michael—home to the famous scene between Luke and Rey in the most recent Star Wars movie. Due to the overcast and inclement weather that day, Brandon was anxious that his plan to propose on this infamous mountain might be squashed. However, all his worries washed away as they went on their way.

After a winding hike to the top of the mountain, it was time for Brandon to ask Corey Beth the most important question of his life. Their original plan was to reenact a scene that took place on the edge, which gave Brandon the perfect excuse to set up his tripod and capture their special moment. Right before they finished, Brandon got on one knee and Corey Beth immediately said YES!  In true Ireland fashion, they celebrated this huge milestone with two pints of Guinness.

To begin their life together, Brandon wanted to choose an engagement ring that captured his and Corey Beth’s unique relationship.
