Round vs cushion cut diamond stud earrings

Round vs cushion cut diamond stud earrings

“Christmas is just around the corner and I remember from last year that it can be a challenge to find truly well matched pairs of diamonds for earrings, so I’m contacting you early this year, because last year I ended up going with a Brian Gavin diamond pillow style tennis bracelet, which she loved, but maybe this year I can scratch diamond stud earrings off of my gift giving list! I’m looking for something in the range of three quarters of a carat each, SI-1 clarity, I-color, to match the diamond set in her engagement ring; what do you recommend? And should I go with Brian Gavin Signature round diamonds, or the new Brian Gavin Signature cushion cut diamonds? I think she’d be happy with either diamond shape, but might prefer the cushion cuts because they are different; but how is the sparkle compared to Brian’s round ideal cut diamonds?”

The Brian Gavin Diamond Pillow style tennis bracelet:

brian-gavin-diamond-pillow-style-tennis-braceletI’m sure that your wife did appreciate the Brian Gavin diamond pillow style tennis bracelet that you presented her with last Christmas, because it is an absolutely stunning design that is extremely popular with our clients! I thought that I would provide our readers with a photograph of the tennis bracelet, since they might not be familiar with it. Diamond tennis bracelets such as this make wonderful gifts, and they can be worn with practically any outfit, for any occasion. Brian Gavin offers a wide selection of diamond bracelets, but it is best to order early since each one is custom made to order.

Round Brilliant vs Cushion cut diamond stud earrings:

Whether to select a matched pair of Brian Gavin Signature round diamonds, or a matched pair of Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamonds for earrings, is truly a matter of personal preference, because the diamonds are virtually identical in terms of the overall volume of light return and the sparkle factor… Brian Gavin spent countless hours perfecting the design of the new Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamond that he introduced last year, and the visual performance is simply stunning!

I don’t think that we have a photograph of a pair of Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamond earrings readily available on the web site, so here is a photograph of a pair that we delivered to another client earlier this year, they turned out spectacular and she was absolutely thrilled with them! When talking about the carat weight of diamond stud earrings, we tend to refer to the combined carat weight of the two diamonds which comprise the set, so this matched pair of Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamonds weighing 1.442 carats total weight (t.w.) might be of interest.

The pair of Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamonds consists of two cushion cut diamonds, weighing 0.714 and 0.728 carats respectively, both of which have an overall cut grade of AGS Ideal-0 and a clarity of SI-1 and are I-color with negligible fluorescence.

And if you prefer a matched pair of Brian Gavin Signature round diamonds for earrings, there is this pair weighing 1.400 carats total weight, which is SI-1 in clarity, and I-color, with negligible fluorescence, which is selling for right around the same price, so it really comes down to simply which diamond shape you prefer, round or cushion cut diamond, because the carat weight, color, clarity, light return, and sparkle factor are comparable.

And of course, we’ll be ready to help you select the perfect diamond for a diamond solitaire style pendant, if that happens to be the direction you are headed next year! Thank you for being a loyal customer of Brian Gavin Diamonds, we truly appreciate your patronage.

P.S. this blog post was posted and made public, only after our client had the opportunity to decide upon a slightly larger pair of Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamonds
