The experience of working with Todd Gray to help navigate my search for the perfect diamond was priceless. His expertise is invaluable in an industry I had limited knowledge of and I always felt that he had my best interest in mind. Finding an affordable stone through Brian Gavin was an added bonus. I had been looking at Brian Gavin’s website for years yet never believed that I would someday own one of his stunningly beautiful perfectly cut stones. Thank you Todd Gray and Brian Gavin for such a pleasant experience through this entire process!
