Stylish Looking Website

Writing an accurate review of an online diamond retailer is a task that raises several problems. First of all, the majority of online vendors offer similar search tools and devices to assist you in your buying process. For this reason, it can rather hard to discover something new and identify what makes the particular service unique.

Then, the second problem – it is basically related to the first one: should we seek uniqueness or reliability when we try to judge such a service?

Let us try to answer these questions by taking a look at what Brian Gavin Diamonds has to offer and why they became one of the most established names in the industry.

A Review of’s Services

As the state of the art has been pushed forward again and again, there are a myriad of features that have fallen out of the “Wow!” sector and to be expected of any online jeweler. An easy jewelry browser tool is one such feature. Luckily, Brian Gavin Diamonds does this right and provides an excellent browser which incorporates easy-to-use sliders.

Quality At Its Best!

Also, when the goods sold by an e-commerce site sells are priced in the range of tens of thousands of dollars, live customer support is among the least that you should expect.

Having said that, I decided to test the live chat service several times. Even though the default greeting message is an undemanding standard greeting sentence, the peers on the other side proved to be human every time.

Another pair of features that consumers enjoy are free shipping and money back guarantee. Now, you should not allow yourself to be mesmerized just by hearing these as they are also standard terms for any good online retailers.

Instead, what is really more important and meaningful for you is the quality of their diamonds and their service standards.

Design And Marketing – Different by Choice

Brian Gavin Diamonds offers an entirely different browsing experience. Instead of the heavenly whites and pale blues you are probably accustomed to when visiting other sites, BGD comes with a black background with powerful orange and green contours.

My first impression was that such a design is too aggressive for a business related to diamonds. However, I soon realize that even though it is unusual, it does not make the diamonds which are delivered by them also black, orange or green. That is, even though they spot an unconventional website design, they still deliver top-notch diamonds and take pride in making you a happy customer.

Next, we dig beneath the surface and performed an in-depth analysis of diamonds from their signature lines. That’s where things really start to get interesting as we bring you the next part of our Brian Gavin Diamonds review. Read on to find out more…

    Thanks for this awesome website! I really appreciate the amount of information that one can learn just from visiting your site alone.

    I have a couple of questions about Brian Gavin’s signature cushion cut diamonds. My husband and I are looking for a 15th year anniversary present and Christmas came early for me. How do they compare to the regular diamonds and are they a good buy in terms of value?

    I am assuming you are asking about the newly released series of hearts and arrows cushion cut diamonds. This is a specially patented cut by BGD (aka Brian the Cutter) and their unique selling point is the AGS 000 certification and optical patterning for the fancy cushion shape.

    Having looked through their inventory, I think there is no argument that these are beautiful diamonds. The light performance grading by AGS is testament to that. However, I am not particularly impressed by the cushion hearts and arrows for one reason – lack of consistency in craftsmanship.

    Unlike Brian Gavin’s other signature line of diamonds, I see a lot of variation in terms of precision cut quality and even optical performance. I don’t say this easily without the technical data to backup my views.

    Checking the patterning on the pavilion side of the 5 random stones, it isn’t hard for a layman to see obvious differences between each stone.

    Likewise, the ASET imagery of another 5 random selections also shows clear discrepancies.

    From my point of view, if I am paying a premium for cut quality, I expect the best and nothing less. The newly released cushion cuts don’t fulfill my own Nazi-styled cut standards. Coming from Brian Gavin’s selections, this disappointment can be almost considered blasphemy as I was always a fan of BGD.

    Perhaps the lack of quality control could stem from this line of diamonds being new and inadequately tested. When I do manage to get my hands on one of these diamonds, perhaps I will do a more thorough write up on it.

    Does Brian Gavin Diamonds have a showroom at their location? Also, what’s the difference between BrianGavin and WhiteFlash? You seem to recommend both companies highly but if it comes down to it, which company is better?

    They do operate a showroom at their address: 7322 Southwest Fwy #1810, Houston, TX 77074, United States. It is best to call in advance and set an appointment as they can get really busy at times and it is also advisable to check if they have available stones within your specifications.

    With regards to White Flash and Brian Gavin, it’s hard to say who’s better. Both vendors sell extremely well cut diamonds with unbeatable light performance. The main differences lie in the type of designer settings offered. For example, White Flash carries Verragio & Tacori while Brian Gavin carries Scholdt.

    It is also worth noting that Brian the Cutter recently patented their signature line of cushion hearts and arrows diamonds which you can’t find anywhere else. BGD also offers a special line of ideal cut blue fluorescence diamonds which are out of this world.
