More Exciting Diamond and Colored Stone Jewelry Projects by Brian Gavin…

We have many customers who send in their diamonds and colored stones to be set into beautiful new settings here at BGD. We'll post the "Picture Gallery" of 5 projects first and then the descriptions and testimonials will follow: Project 1:

Erica sent in a 1.25ct purple spinel measuring 5 x 7 mm to be set into a 14K white gold split shank rope setting by Adwar.

I just picked up the ring and it is amazing! I love how delicate the ropes look. After seeing the rough cast photos I really do think it must have been polished up by magical fairies! The whole thing shimmers and shines! The prongs, which I had been worried about being too bulky, are absolutely perfect!!! I can't stop staring at it! Thank you guys so much! I will, of course, be taking photos this evening. Erica

Project 2:

Amy sent in two 4mm blue sapphires after being really pleased with the sapphire and diamond eternity band we had made for her previously. We paired the 2 new sapphires with 2 x .25 carat H SI marquise diamonds and set them into yellow gold bezeled movable earring charms.

I picked up the charms at lunch today and they're absolutely gorgeous! Thank you! Amy

Project 3:

Tanya sent in an old flower style ring that her mother had given her on her wedding day which just sat in her drawer. We unmounted the diamonds and created a custom 18K white gold 9 stone half eternity bezel band.

Lesley! I just picked up my band. The FedEx people must of thought I was nuts sitting in the lot ripping open the box. Anyway, the band is STUNNING!! Even more beautiful and sparkly in real life. I still cannot believe that these are the same diamonds and this came from the old ring. The bezels are so dainty and well done and although I had it done as a stacker ring, I like it even more than my 5 carat shared prong eternity. It just has so much character. I am so excited to be able to wear this ring everyday instead of having it sit in a drawer. OK I will stop rambling now. The only bad news is I am going straight from work to the beach and I have no camera here, so I probably won't be able to get my Pricescope pics up for a few days 🙁 THANKS AGAIN! You are awesome, Brian is awesome, the "jewelry elves" are awesome. Tanya

Project 4:

Megan sent in a .50 carat princess cut diamond that was set into a 4 prong solitaire. We unmounted the diamond and set it into a custom 18K rose gold full bezel pendant with milgrain and a 16" rose gold chain.

OMG!!!!!!! I picked up my pendant this morning from FedEx and immediately went to the car to sit down and rip through the boxes….Swoon!! I love it. Any worries I had about the way the chain was attached are gone, and I love, love, love it. You guys have done far more than I expected in terms of customer service and quality. You can plan on more projects coming your way from me! (I doubt this will be a wedding piece, I love too much to wait 🙂 I have it on as we speak… I think it is going to be my everyday piece other than my e-ring and w-band…) Many thanks to you and Brian (and your bench crew). Best, Megan

Project 5:

Barbara sent in her diamond for a recut, and was thrilled when it was given an AGS0 cut grade and had become a D SI1 after starting off as an E SI1! We set the diamond into a custom platinum full bezel pendant with a 16" platinum wheat chain.

Dear Leslie, You're right – it is gorgeous! Thanks for working on these fine details with me. The bezel is is very dainty and makes the diamond look huge. I can't wait to wear it and I will take some pictures as well. Thanks for all the support and patience. Please say thanks to Brian for as well. I can't wait to see it. Kind Regards, Barbara
