Brian Gavin Signature vs Brian Gavin Select Cushions
“I’ve been shopping for a cushion cut diamond. I’ve had my heart set on a Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamond, but the reality is that exactly what I’m looking for hasn’t come along in terms of the combination of carat weight, color, and clarity. The impression that I have from reading various articles online is that the BGD Signature Cushion is hard to beat. I’m curious about where the new Brian Gavin Select Cushion cut diamonds fall in the scheme of things. Do they offer the same incredible light performance? I notice that some of the diamonds listed have photographs and others do not. I guess what I’m asking is which would you pick? Is a select cushion cut diamond going to be good enough, or should I wait for the right signature cushion?”
Choosing the Best Cushion Cut Diamond:
Without a doubt, the Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamond is the most incredible cushion cut diamond that I’ve ever seen. Every one of them exhibits a stunning pattern of hearts and arrows, which is a result of being cut to exhibit the highest degree of optical precision. Each one has an overall cut grade of AGS Ideal-0, which is the highest cut grade available. It is very difficult to achieve since the diamonds are subjected to Angular Spectrum Evaluation Technology (ASET). The ASET image provides verification that the diamond is going to be incredibly bright, and proves that light is reflecting evenly throughout the diamond. This insight provides peace of mind.
Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamonds are cut to exacting standards, as defined by Brian Gavin. He spent years experimenting with different proportions and facet designs to determine which combination produced the highest volume of light return and the best balance of brilliance and dispersion.
Brian Gavin Select Cushion cut diamonds are not produced by Brian Gavin, rather they are produced by a cutter who produces cushion cut diamonds that Brian Gavin has determined provide great light return and a nice balance of brilliance and dispersion. Brian likes the production quality provided by this particular cutter, and has contracted with him for the online distribution of his production. The diamonds are GIA graded cushion brilliant cut diamonds, which feature the traditional eight-star pavilion facet pattern. This is similar to the facet structure of a traditional round brilliant, but with a pillow-like cushion crown section.
