Brian Gavin Signature Diamond Reviews: Best options around the 2 carat mark

Legara pave diamond engagement ring reviews for Brian Gavin Diamonds“Hey Todd, I love your site! It’s helped me understand diamonds better, but I don’t feel comfortable enough to pick a diamond on my own, so I’m going to take you up on your offer to help me find a diamond via your free diamond concierge service, which makes no sense to me because I know you’ve got to earn a living somehow. Anyway I’m hoping that you can help me find a ±2 carat diamond that delivers the best bang for the buck, and I’ve got about $20k to spend, but could go up to $22k for the right diamond if I have to. I guess the question is, if you were me and had that kind of money to spend, what would you choose if you were buying the diamond?” — Skyler

Has Enchanted Diamonds cast a spell on Nice Ice?

Enchanted Diamonds review, can a zebra change it's stripesI probably shouldn’t be telling you this, but I’ve made peace with Enchanted Diamonds of New York City. I know, I know what you’re thinking… “Isn’t Enchanted Diamonds the company that YOU awarded an F minus in your review of the Enchanted Diamonds web site a little more than a year ago?!?! The online diamond vendor that YOU linked to and then proceeded to highlight the link address with the comment <==== Definitely NOT an Affiliate Link ====> to emphasize the fact that you weren’t recommending them as an online diamond vendor?” That is actual commentary from another affiliate who I work with and I can see why they are concerned about my recent alliance with Enchanted Diamonds.

Does James Allen or Enchanted Diamonds offer the best price?

James Allen round ideal diamond reviews, GIA 17158559“I found this GIA Triple Excellent Cut 2.21 carat, E-color, VS-1 clarity, round diamond from James Allen and would like your opinion on it, I think that I found the same diamond for less from Enchanted Diamonds. During the course of my research, I found your negative review of Enchanted Diamonds, but then you wrote a positive review of a pear shape diamond from Enchanted Diamonds the other day. Why the change of heart? Obviously I’d like to get the best price possible when buying a diamond, but I want peace of mind also. Given that the diamond cut quality is GIA Excellent, who would you buy it from? Who does the best custom work? And do you have any discount coupons for either vendor?

Enchanted Diamonds review: 2.14 carat, H-color, Internally Flawless pear shape diamond, GIA 5176443685

What are the best proportions for pear shape diamonds?Hi Todd, I need your help ASAP because I’ve spent the past few months learning all that I could about round brilliant cut diamonds for an engagement ring, and just discovered that my girlfriend prefers pear shapes; thus I’m back at the drawing board, at ground zero with less than three weeks to find the perfect ring! My target range is around 2.50 carats, H-I color, VS-1 or higher in clarity, with the best proportions possible for a pear shape diamond, and a ceiling of about $25K including a 3 stone baguette ring in platinum if that’s possible. I realize that the budget is kind of tight, but I might be willing to stretch a little further if the vendor offers competitive financing. Thanks! — Marcus W.
