Upgrade

 

We offer a Lifetime Upgrade Policy on all Brian Gavin Signature diamonds (Signature hearts and arrows round, Signature cushion, Signature princess, Signature emerald, Signature Blue®, The Cape Series®, Black by Brian Gavin® and Advance Selection).

This does not apply to jewelry or jewelry that contains diamonds or diamond melee.

When upgrading to another Brian Gavin Signature diamond (see all above), apply 100% of the original purchase price (less shipping and sales tax) towards your upgrade (see more below) and pay the difference.

All in-house natural diamond upgrades require spending 50% or more of the original diamond purchase price, excluding original shipping and sales tax. For example, if your original natural diamond cost $1,000, the new natural diamond would need to cost at least $1,500.

Additional charges may apply at time of upgrade. If there was any sales tax paid on your original diamond purchase, this sales tax is nonrefundable and cannot be applied towards your upgrade.

Please note: Original certificates must be returned together with the diamonds. Each certificate that is not returned in its entirety and/or its original condition will incur a $250 restocking fee.
