Brian Gavin Creates Vintage Style Custom Platinum Setting for Cushion Cut Diamond…

In the middle of June we received an e-mail from a previous customer who had purchased Brian's A Cut Above hearts and arrows diamonds two years ago. She was looking to create a custom platinum "vintage" ring for her new cushion cut diamond…

…I just purchased one of Good Old Gold's smashing signature cushions and need to build her a permanent home. I am so enamored with this diamond that I've named it — Josette — waaaay off the deep end, even for a bling addict like me….So, Josette needs a special home — somewhat vintage with a bit of milgrain…

She e-mailed us several pictures for inspiration and had a couple of in depth phone calls with Brian. We provided her with sketches of several options. Once she had made her decision, we proceeded to design the setting using CAD and then we created her magnificent new custom, completely hand finished setting.

When we e-mailed her the pictures of her finished ring she e-mailed back:

Aiiiiiyeeeeeeeeeeeeyeeeeeeeeeeeyeeeeeeeeeee. She is beautiful! Exactly what I envisioned…Can't wait to get it on my finger. I'll have to moisture for the PS hand pics. LOL. I treasure my experience with you and Brian. Maybe I'll have a few minutes to drop by when I'm in Houston next month.

On receiving the actual ring, she e-mailed us this wonderful testimonial:

I'm sitting on the sofa staring at it. Driving home was a challenge with all of the sparkle flying around the car on this beautiful sunny day. I lost all civility driving to Fed Ex. I tailgated, laid on the horn, and flashed my headlights at all of the slowpokes on the road. LOL. I was awful but it was for a good cause. There is much to love about the craftsmanship of this ring. It is substantial yet delicate. It appears as though the diamonds are simply floating in formation which means there is no overwhelming presence of metal. I think this is what gives the ring such delicacy. The center stone prongs are nearly invisible allowing the cushion to take center stage. And the milgrain is the best I've seen and I've been around the block a few times, lol. Exquisite, perfect. Words are inadequate. I need to give you guys a hug so please accept a virtual one. Deborah.
