Dear BGD team, My ring just came back from being repaired, and I would like to express my delight in the transaction. Not only was the repair covered by your warranty (no free repair offered by wf), but the presentation took my breath away. Your new ring box is the classiest I have seen, and I was touched that you would include it for a repair ring. You are a class act and have really set yourselves apart from the crowd. Thank you!!! Tytti K. PS, loving the mint tin also!
Hi Jamie, I started looking for a diamond in May 2013. I knew very little. I went to the 2 best jewellers in Northern Ireland, a jewellers in Manchester England and various Uk websites such as 77diamonds.com and qualitydiamonds.com. I realised that online was the best way to get the best diamond for my money. At that stage I had no idea about EGL certificates but did learn about GIA XXX cut. Thats what I wanted 1 carat GIA xxx D colour VS2 as I couldn’t risk it not being eye clean. I then progressed to USA websites and looked at bluenile.com whiteflash.com and highperfomancediamonds.com. I reviewed them all as well as independent websites thetruthaboutdiamonds.com Michael Fried now diamondspro.com and nice ice.com Todd Gray. As independents they both told me that Brian Gavin H and A was the very best diamond you could buy. I was sold and then had to save for a year and a bit and find a 1 plus carat D VS2. Of course I asked Jamie a million questions in between times by phone and e mail. I ended up with a 1.732 D VS2. The setting was also a nightmare as we simply couldn’t find anything either of us liked anywhere then BG custom made one for us exactly as we wanted. I also ordered the wedding band at the same time so they were exactly the same. Sarah-Louise knew we were going away but not where to and not when until a couple of weeks before hand. I told her at the airport that it was New York. We stayed at the Trump Soho and went to the Empire state building that night then on to Restaurant Daniel in Manhattan where I proposed. I could write book on diamonds but Im done for now until I need a wedding band! Thanks Jonathan T.
Hi Jamie, Just wanted to let you know I received the rings and they are gorgeous. I love them! Thanks Mimi W.
Hi Denise! I picked up the package last night and tore through both boxes and the envelope once I had the chance. You were totally right, it looks amazing and I can't wait to propose with it this weekend!! The design came out perfect - it's subtle (for me) but has my personal twist to it (for her). We'll be sure to send some pictures after :) I'm truly grateful for everything you did to make this happen. All the best, Chris P.
Jamie This is a belated thank you for all your efforts to help with my earring purchase. I'm very pleased with them, but I'll probably be paying higher car insurance premiums soon because I spend so much time admiring my right earring in the rear view mirror. These studs are little sparkle machines! Thanks again. Donna G.
Hey Denise, Just wanted to send a HUGE THANKS your way for organising Danica’s 30th birthday present and to all the BGD team for ensuring the bracelet and earrings arrived on-time. Denise, she is going to love your suggestion for earrings and a bracelet! Talk about spoilt! I’ll be sure to let you know her reaction on Monday.As always the diamonds and overall quality is exceptional! I’m soo excited about giving them to her. It’s going to be difficult for me to hold out until her birthday on Sunday! Funnily enough, I was admiring the sparkle of her ring at lunch today and these extra items will look beautiful together! To Lesley, I also wanted to copy you in to let you know that Denise has always done a sensational job looking after me since we first spoke way back in 2010. Her customer service, suggestions and the overall customer experience is seriously second to none! That goes for all the whole BGD team and lucky for me in that I was able to meet you all when I was in Houston! As soon as anybody asks me about diamonds I always send them your way and to Denise without hesitation! Thanks again for everything and send my regards to Brian and the team. Denise, we’ll speak soon! Cheers from Australia. Victor C.
Jamie, Hello Jamie! I'm absolutely thrilled about the ring. It's exactly as I imagined it to be and more! It has fully exceeded my expectations. I was apprehensive about ordering online, but you made the experience easy and comfortable. After several emails and phone conversations I became very confident in buying from Brian Gavin. The proposal is going to be the end of July. We are heading to Greece July 23 to August 8. Im planning on proposing on the beaches of Santorini. Thank you again for all your help! Will keep you updated on how it goes. I know she will love the ring! Jamie D.
Jamie, The BGD milgrain bezeled old cut diamond earrings are among my most prized possessions. The setting enlarges a 0.7 ct stone so that the studs are very prominent when worn, yet is delicate and quietly complementary to the diamonds, not overpowering. I get lots of compliments with viewers leaning in close for a good look at the lovely artisanship. The platinum is luxurious and sets off the diamonds, making them face up whiter than they are. There is a reason that the BDG bezel treatment is so popular: It Rocks! Lynne Fieber
Jamie, I got the diamond last Friday, and it's incredible. Thank you for working with me and answering all of my questions. Also, please pass my thanks on to Mr. Gavin. It was very cool to have him call me when you had to send me a replacement diamond. His friendly, caring attitude will go a long way in making me recommend Brian Gavin to anyone I talk to. Thanks again, Christopher C.
Hi Denise, Everything went well with the proposal! She was surprised and she really loves the ring. I showed her the other ring and she's decided to keep the one she has (thanks, nice pick). It is a little bit too big but I'm not sure if we'll send it to you to get resized or just get it resized in Edmonton. For the difference in the ring price can you just leave a credit on my account as we will be buying the wedding band at some stage. Thanks so much for all your help!! Greg J.
Hi Denise, November was such a whirlwind month I totally forgot to email you and tell you how it all went. Well she said yes and it was awesome. I decided I didn't want to ask Amber in Hawaii (too cliché) so the day before we left I took her to a local chocolate factory here in Springfield (Askinosie Chocolate) where we had an amazing date when we first started dating. I took her under the guise of having a tour and tasting (so yes I plied her with chocolate so she had to say yes). At the end of the tour the guide brought out a bar of chocolate that I had secretly slipped a fake label inside asking her to marry me : ) Here’s a couple of pics, but the tour guide was so nervous (literally shaking) that they are a little blurry.Anyway, now I need to look at the wedding band and I think Amber is going to contact you about my band. What band to you recommend that would fit with her ring? Wedding is November 1. Thanks Denise. Bryan M.
Catherine, It's glorious!! Exceeded my expectations. The diamond appears as big as a 1ct oval we looked at. You were right, the bowtie is not visible at all and the brightness is amazing. Needless to say, Debra was jealous! I'm planning to propose this weekend or next, I'm going to the hotel to meet with a manager and discuss options on Thursday. I have a photographer that will be documenting the event and will definitely send you the photos :) Dylan B.
