Hi Denise, My ring arrived and I have to say it's turned out spectacularly well. The photos didn't do it justice. Everything is absolutely spot on. The 18k rose blends perfectly with my skin and the polished sides add the perfect bling without looking feminine. The surprise diamonds are also perfectly sized. Please pass on my thanks to everyone who worked on it. They should all be proud of their craftsmanship. As always, thanks for your assistance. You've been great to work with. Thank you very much. Cameron P.
Hi Denise, This email is extremely late but I want to thank you for helping me out with the engagement ring. She is in love with it and gets compliments right and left about how sparkly and unique the ring is. It was a pleasure working with you and we did an awesome job! The time has come to pick up wedding bands and she asked me to come back and pick up a matching beauty. Do you have any suggestions on a matching band for her ring? She is interested in an complimenting eternity band with either light pink diamonds and white diamonds. I personally am a fan of the Velvet band in rose gold.. would the pave go well with her double band? If possible get one of the criss cross sides in pink diamonds? Eric G.
Hi Katie, The loose Brian Gavin Signature Blue diamond I purchased for my fiancee's engagement ring was out of this world. I had bought 3 others from James Allen, but your diamond out-shined them all. Plus, the cool blue fluorescence, which is very apparent here in Denver and the surrounding mountains, makes it all the more valuable and special to us. We picked a cool Celtic knot design that was crafted by hand by a local jeweler. The diamond is set in 18k yellow gold. Basically, it looks beyond gorgeous, and I'll still find myself mesmerized by its sparkle in low-light conditions--and by it's blue hue on sunny days. Thanks very much for your help and for supplying us with such a breathtaking diamond. I have already recommended you to friends of mine who are looking to tie the knot. By the way, do you have any coupon or discount codes I could give them to sway their decision on getting a diamond? -Bob
Lesley, Just got back from my trip to Paris early late last week. I wanted to thank you and everyone at Brian Gavin for working with me to get a great diamond just in time. When I took the ring to a local appraiser, Patrick Davis, he mentioned that he knew Brian and could tell I did my research since Brian Gavin is the best diamond cutter and the U.S. Patrick also explained how Brian is a pioneer in diamond cutting. After getting the appraisal I again reassured that I had made the right choice by going with Brian Gavin. Her co-workers are also very envious of the ring/diamond, which is exactly what I was going for. Thanks again for everything. Martin S. p.s. I attached a few shots that have the ring as well as the proposal.
Hello Catherine, The ring is absolutely gorgeous!!! I was blown away as it had just more sparkle than anything I had seen locally. The pave looks great and doesn't overshadow the diamond at all and the center stone itself looks really big! I took the ring to a local independent appraiser as well and he had nothing but good things to say about it. He even thought that the stone was a VS2 at first before shining additional light on it to see some of the smaller clouds. There was simply too much sparkle for me to even try and find inclusions without 10x magnification. Thank you so much for helping me select this amazing stone. The appraiser also suggested that the best way to keep this ring sparkling like new all the time is to soak with ammonia/water and I wanted to confirm with you that there would be no problems with me doing this. Now I just have to figure out when I want to propose, I don't think I can keep this ring to myself for very long! Have a great week, Stephen S.
Hi Jamie, Just wanted to send you a big Thank you for you and all your team at Brian Gavin Diamonds. As you promised, the ring arrived on time, and went through the Australian Customs without too much delay. This gave me a week to prepare myself for the big night :) Last night, it was our Anniversary, and I picked up my girlfriend, and went to our favourite place for a walk along the lake. We have had previous memories of beautiful sunsets over the lake, and I was truly blessed that last night was a beautiful clear night as well. After watching a glorious sunset together, I said how much my now fiancee mean's to me, and bent down on one knee, and proposed. She said Yes!!!! She loves the ring, and I am so thankful for all your service, and assurance during this tight schedule of events. I will definitely recommend you to my friends, John K.
Hi Denise, Things have been a little crazy the last few weeks but I wanted to thank you and everyone else that helped Sarah and I with our ring purchase. It looks amazing and I'm excited to propose very soon! I wanted to also invite you and Brian and Leslie and whoever else might be interested to the Houston symphony this weekend! I am conducting and playing a great program including some tangos by Piazzolla, and would love to leave some comp tickets at will call if there is interest. 2 concerts left, Saturday 3/8 at 8pm or Sunday 3/9 at 2:30pm both at jones hall downtown. Thanks again for everything! Ray H. & Sarah L.
Jamie, The 1.48 J SI1 arrived today and it's gorgeous! You were right that it's incredibly clean for an SI1 - I could barely see the inclusions with the loupe. Easily very eye clean. What impressed me was the sparkle from the profile view - it had noticeably more fire and colored light than my other diamond when looking at it from the side in sunlight. From the top they are both fireballs though with a slight edge to the BGD diamond. I'll be returning my other diamond. Thanks so much for your help! Derrick C.
Hi Jamie, I finally got the package yesterday, after a seem to be eternal wait over the weekend. I was tracking the package continuously all the time. It arrived in Singapore on Friday late afternoon. But as the package was instructed to be delivered on weekdays, i only received it on the next Monday afternoon. The feeling of knowing its presence in Singapore but not being to see it... It's terrible.. Haha.. My wife had a wonderful time opening the package and looking at every single content inside. The sweet that comes with it, she enjoy it! The diamond was brilliant! She stared at it for while, then she turned and looked at me "Shall we go to the local jeweler to set it now?" I was like "NOW?!!" She replied yes and off we go. Now it is in the shop for its Tiffany style 6 prong setting. I didn't even chance to admire the diamond. Enjoying the experience of BG diamond, we started to look at some of the wedding bands design today. She prefer a shared setting eternity ring but i actually prefer a channel set eternity ring. Was wondering does BG offers something combination of both shared setting and channel set (tiffany style to match her e-ring)? The only i could find was the grace diamond eternity band. Thanks, Samuel L.
Hi Jamie,, Just picked-up the earrings from FedEx. They look INCREDIBLE!!!! Thank you so much for accommodating my request to use Sapphires; I really can't express my thanks enough. You've made a customer for life.May I request an appraisal for my insurance policy? Can't wait to see the glamour shots! Kindly thank Brian and Lesley for me. With kindest regards, Rick P.
Hi, Just wanted to say thanks to all and especially Jamie that helped me throughout my whole purchase experience. It's been a week and my fiancee Judy absolutely loved the ring. This is what she told me after wearing it to work for a week:People walking down the hallway definitely noticed her ring as she walks by, and so do people that are also sitting in meetings with her. Sometimes she has to try not to get too much attention at inappropriate times by covering it up with her hands. A couple girls would still go to her cube and grab her hand and just stare at the ring... and one of them has a Tiffany but she's still amazed at the sparkle our ring has. A few guys are now sad because they bought their wives/girlfriends more expensive diamond rings that now looks boring to them. And best of all everyone guessed i paid much more than what i really did for the ring. So overall we are very happy with the ring. Thanks again, Gabriel L.
Jamie, Hi -- success!!!! Not only did she say yes (was totally surprised) she absolutely LOVES the ring and can't take her eyes off of it. She kept taking photos of it and kept staring at it and talking about it. It looks amazing. Thank you again. I think I got the size right too. She would like to wear it several days to confirm which I assume is fine? And she really likes the setting too and says the ring is super comfortable and likes the design very much which was your recommendation. Total home run ;) --Ted S.
