Eliot and Anastasia were best friends growing up, and in their senior year of high school, they started dating and fell in love. Nine years later, Eliot was ready to propose and he came to Brian Gavin Diamonds to create the perfect custom engagement ring.
“I knew I wanted to hit a certain size but at the same time meet a certain budget. I was very grateful to the Brian team that they kept me in mind when our stone hit their inventory. It was exactly what I was looking for!”
Eliot and our team chose a 1.945 J VS1 Signature Hearts and Arrows Round Diamond in a 3/4 Eternity Pave Platinum setting. “Meeting Brian in person was a true pleasure, his passion shone through as he educated me on diamonds. He made sure that I didn't just settle for good but I went and got the best. Everyone talks about how much fire Anastasia's diamond has and that is no accident, her stone is truly a one of a kind work of art.”
All that was left was the proposal! Eliot and Anastasia discussed her dream proposal ahead of time, but that didn’t make the execution any easier for Eliot. “I gave Eliot the impossible task of a private proposal and having everyone there at the same time, and he certainly rose up to the challenge. My 25th birthday was coming up and I told him that I wanted to do a big vacation in NOLA with all of our friends. We ended up having 26 people come down to NOLA and celebrate with us for the whole weekend.”
Eliot saw the perfect opportunity to propose on Anastasia’s birthday weekend. He told her they were going to have a romantic dinner, just the two of them, on Saturday night. They both got all dressed up, and Anastasia didn’t suspect a thing! Eliot had booked a private room at a diner, and it was full of their friends waiting to surprise Anastasia. When they arrived at the private dining room, all of their friends screamed “surprise!”
“Little did I know, the night of surprises was just beginning.” Anastasia said.
Eliot surprised her with a beautiful video featuring all of their friends and loved ones wishing her a happy birthday, and then he surprised her with a trip to one of their favorite places on earth, Universal Studios, Orlando. With so many surprises coming her way, she never suspected what Eliot had planned next.
There was a professional photographer there to “photograph the birthday party”, and Eliot convinced Anastasia to go to the perfect proposal spot by telling her that the photographer had to leave soon. He led Anastasia away from the group of partygoers in pursuit of the perfect New Orleans birthday picture.
“We took pictures all through the city, ending at a gorgeous rooftop at sundown, which was laid out in roses, candles and huge letters spelling out: Marry Me. A few minutes after he proposed all of our friends joined us on the rooftop and that’s how I got my perfect private/public proposal.”
And what did Anastasia think of her new engagement ring?
“The first time I saw the ring, I was blown away. It was exactly the ring I've always dreamed of but it was better than I could have ever imagined in person! In every type of light, it shines and glistens from within.”
Congratulations to Eliot and Anastasia from everyone on the Brian Gavin Diamonds team!

Austin, a military veteran from Nebraska contacted us online in search of the perfect diamond to fit his budget. He’d shopped around at local jewelers and found that their diamonds just weren’t up to snuff. He had his eye on the Black by Brian Gavin line, nothing but the best for his future fiancée Taylor.
With some help from our expert associates, Austin selected a .695 D VS1 Black by Brian Gavin Diamond and was able to use his military discount to keep his purchase within his budget.
We kept in contact with him and once he’d set the diamond in the perfect halo setting, he sent us a picture of the stunning results.
“I must say it has been a pure delight to get to show off my impeccable stone to some of the local jewelry stores when looking for a place to set my stone. Obviously many have tried swaying me to purchase a stone through them, but every one of them have had to admit my Black was a perfectly cut stone that was absolutely stunning and couldn't believe what I paid for it as well! I look forward to picking out an eternity ring from BGD in the future as an eventual anniversary gift. Thanks for all your help.”
Congratulations to Austin and Taylor! If you’d like to learn more about our military discount, contact us today.

Last February, Nisha contacted us in her search for the perfect pair of diamond earrings just in time to take advantage of our Valentine’s Day discount! She had her eyes on a .555 H VS2 and a .558 G VS2 round Signature Hearts and Arrows diamond to set in a custom 14K yellow gold four prong basket setting, a stylish and popular choice.
She was traveling out of the country soon after her earrings would arrive and was concerned about being unable to return them if there was any problem. We have a 15 day return period on diamonds, but her travels would keep her abroad until the return window was closed. When she learned that we would be able to hold her gorgeous new earrings until she returned from her trip, thus allowing her the full 15 days to get to know her brand new diamonds, she was thrilled.
Just as we suspected, she didn’t need to return her diamonds. It was love at first sight!
“I do love my new beautiful earrings! It has been a wonderful experience dealing with Brian Gavin as well! Thanks!”
Congratulations, Nisha! If you’re looking for your dream earrings but aren’t sure where to start, contact us today and one of our experts will work with you every step of the way.
