If you know anything about diamonds, then you know that anything in the 1.90 – 1.99 carat range is extremely rare, and heavily sought after because of the tremendous value that diamonds in this range of carat weight present, due to the substantial price increase that occurs between the 1.99 – 2.00 carat marks. Thus if you’ve been looking for a two carat princess cut diamond, you should seriously consider this 1.930 carat, G-color, SI-1 clarity, Brian Gavin Signature Princess cut diamond
, because it is cut like a dream and offers tremendous savings over the price of a two carat! Don’t sit around contemplating whether to buy this diamond or not, it is likely to sell very fast!
“I’m in the process of shopping for a diamond engagement ring online, and am trying to decide between Blue Nile Signature round diamonds
and James Allen True Hearts diamonds
, which seem to offer a good balance of quality and price. Neither vendor seems to have anything that matches your preferred range of selection parameters at the moment, but I’m hoping you can help me select the best option from the list provided. How important is diamond culet size? I know that you specify a preference for a culet size of either GIA “none” or AGS “pointed” and indicate that it is the same thing in concept, but what difference does a very small or small culet make in the appearance of a diamond?”

I’m interested in the Enchanted Hearts Diamonds (see below) and am hoping that you can help me decide which of them is better, the specifications seem pretty similar to me, and both diamonds exhibit nice patterns of hearts. I’ve been reading your blog for awhile now, and notice that you write about Brian Gavin Signature Hearts and Arrows diamonds a lot, but the 1.81 carat, H-color, SI-1 clarity, BGD Signature diamond
is several thousand dollars more expensive — is it really worth it? Obviously I can see that the hearts patterns exhibited by the Brian Gavin Signature diamonds
are more uniform and crisp, but will this correspond with anything that will be visible to me in the real world?
Previously I wrote a Review of this 1.81 carat, I-color, VS-1 clarity, GIA Excellent cut diamond from Enchanted Diamonds
, wherein I was also asked to review this 1.83 carat, H-color, VS-2 clarity, GIA Excellent cut diamond from Enchanted Diamonds
, and compare them with this 1.81 carat, H-color, SI-1 clarity, Brian Gavin Signature Hearts and Arrows round diamond
, and help the client decide between what the two options which he referred to as “Enchanted Hearts Diamonds” and the BGD Signature diamond. Let’s start with the inclusions, which consist of small diamond crystals, and a few pinpoint size diamond crystals which are clustered together in what the industry refers to as a cloud.
The hearts pattern of this 1.810 carat, H-color, SI-1 clarity, Brian Gavin Signature Hearts and Arrows round cut diamond
that I was asked to review is simply stunning! It is everything that a hearts pattern should be, the hearts are consistent in size and shape, with very little variance from what I can see, the word “uniform” comes to mind, and that is exactly what a hearts and arrows pattern should look like. By the way, this is the last chapter of a three part article that began with my Review of this Enchanted Diamonds 1.81 carat, I-color, VS-1 clarity, round diamond
, and this Review of a 1.83 carat, H-color, VS-2 clarity, round from Enchanted Diamonds,
I hope that you read and enjoy them all!
“I’m in the early stages of shopping for a diamond engagement ring online, you helped a friend of mine select a James Allen True Hearts princess cut diamond
a few months ago, and definitely is beautiful! He was really pleased with the level of customer service that he received from James Allen, and the advice which you provided, and highly recommended both of you. I’m hoping that you can help me pick out the best James Allen True Hearts round brilliant cut diamond
, in the range of $6-10K, but I might be willing to spend more.
So I was checking out the newly redesigned web site for High Performance Diamonds
today, and tripped over this 1.442 carat, I-color, VS-1 clarity, Crafted by Infinity Hearts and Arrows round diamond
! Now anything in the range of 1.40 – 1.49 carats is pretty rare, but even more so when they are cut as incredible as the super ideal cut diamonds produced by Paul Slegers of Crafted by Infinity! Of course I hopped on Skype and asked Wink about this puppy, and he exclaimed “Oh man, it really is spectacular! You should see it…” which is nothing short of a mean spirited tease, since I’m down in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and there is no way that I’m going to be able to feast my eyes on it, but you can!
“Are GIA Excellent and AGS Ideal cut comparable? How does GIA’s “symmetry” and “polish” come into play? Do I need all three of GIA’s symmetry, polish and cut grades to be GIA Excellent for the diamond to be comparable in light performance to AGS Ideal cut diamonds? Thank you.”
People tend to assume that GIA Excellent cut diamonds and AGS Ideal-0 cut diamonds are comparable, however that is not really the case as you will soon discover. But not to worry, by the time you finish reading this article, you will know how to select the best GIA Excellent and AGS Ideal cut diamonds with supreme confidence!
“Can you shed some light on the differences between the Blue Nile Signature Cushion
vs the Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamonds
? Both seem to exhibit hearts and arrows patterns, which I’ve read is a sign of superior optical precision in round ideal cut diamonds. Is hearts and arrows more of a gimmick in a cushion cut diamond, or does it bring something to the table in terms of visual performance? I’m also considering the X-factor cushion cut diamond from Enchanted Diamonds
, but they aren’t cut to exhibit hearts and arrows — what do you think of those? Looking for recommendations in the range of 1.90 – 2.25 carats, G-color, VS-1 or VS-2 in clarity, GIA Excellent or AGS Ideal Cut.”
