Brian Gavin Gives Birth to Diamond Triplets – Twice!

A spokesperson for the Brian Gavin Diamond University Hospital announced today that University President Brian Gavin has recently given birth to virtually identical sets of Diamond Triplets… Twice!  One set of triplets shares a birth weight of 0.802 carats each and the other set weighs 0.807 carats each, both sets share G-color and VS-2 clarity ratings as determined by the AGS Laboratory.  A spokesperson for Brian Gavin Diamonds emphatically denies that Brian underwent in vetro fertilization for the purpose of producing matched sets of diamonds and suggested that I stop using the word “litters” to describe the puppies.

Brian Gavin could not be reached for comment, the organization insists that he is overseas in Antwerp (recovering from the birth) planning the production of his next litter (paraphrasing) but I was able to reach Brian’s wife Lesley who laughed emphatically at the suggestion and asked me not to print that, but did not deny the allegations.

A source deep within the Brian Gavin Diamonds organization confirmed my suspicions via Skype by stating “it would not surprise me, my father will do almost anything to ensure the continued production of diamonds of this quality” but then said “this conversation isn’t on the record, right?” (too late, I got what I needed).  Brian’s son also verified that all of the diamonds exhibit a crisp and complete pattern of Hearts and Arrows and look phenomenal when viewed through both an ASET Scope and an Ideal Scope.  I convinced him to post images of each diamond from the family scrapbook online and you can access them via the links provided below:

0.802 carat, G-color, VS-2 clarity, Signature Hearts and Arrows Diamond from Brian Gavin according to the birth certificate issued by the AGS Laboratory, the diamond measures 5.96 – 5.98 x 3.69 mm and has a total depth of 61.8% with a table diameter of 55.9% and a crown angle of 34.8 degrees which is offset by a pavilion angle of 40.8 degrees with a thin to medium, faceted girdle and a pointed culet.  The internal characteristics of this diamond include crystals, needles and pinpoints, all of which are simply tiny diamond crystals which got trapped within the larger diamond crystal as it formed.

0.802 carat, G-color, VS-2 clarity, Signature Hearts and Arrows Diamond from Brian Gavin according to the birth certificate issued by the AGS Laboratory this puppy measures 5.97 – 6.01 x 3.70 mm and has a total depth of 61.7% with a table diameter of 57.4% and a crown angle of 34.9 degrees offset by a pavilion angle of 40.9 degrees with a thin to slightly thick, faceted girdle.  The clarity grade of this diamond is based upon small feathers.  Because I really like to get a feel for the extent of feathers within diamonds, I used the “verify lab report” option provided on the diamond details page to look at the file copy stored on the server for the AGS Laboratory and used the magnification tool provided to the right side of the screen to enlarge the lab report several times.  Upon doing so I was able to determine that the feathers are all located in the crown (upper half) section of the diamond and that they appear to be of no consequence.

0.802 carat, G-color, VS-2 clarity, Signature Hearts and Arrows Diamond from Brian Gavin according to the AGS Laboratory this diamond measures 5.96 – 5.99 x 3.69 mm and has a total depth of 61.7% with a table diameter of 55.6% and a crown angle of 34.3 degrees which is offset by a pavilion angle of 40.8 degrees with a thin to medium, faceted girdle and a pointed culet.  The primary inclusions consist of needles, crystals and feathers… once again, I opened up the file copy of the lab report on the AGS Laboratory server and determined that the feathers are of no consequence.

The second set of diamond triplets is as follows:

0.807 carat, F-color, VS-1 clarity, Signature Hearts and Arrows Diamond from Brian Gavin according to the AGS Laboratory the diamond measures 5.97 – 6.01 x 3.70 mm and has a total depth of 61.7% with a table diameter of 55.7% with a crown angle of 34.9 degrees and a pavilion angle of 40.7 degrees with a thin to medium, faceted girdle and a pointed culet.  The primary inclusions consist of clouds, needles and crystals…

0.807 carat, F-color, VS-1 clarity, Signature Hearts and Arrows Diamond from Brian Gavin according to the AGS Laboratory the diamond measures 5.96 – 5.98 x 3.70 mm and has a total depth of 62.0% with a table diameter of 55.8% and a crown angle of 34.9 degrees with a pavilion angle of 40.9 degrees and a thin to medium, faceted girdle and no culet.  The primary inclusions consist of small clouds of pinpoint size diamond crystals which are no big deal.

The last of the triplets is another 0.807 carat, F-color, VS-1 clarity, Signature Hearts and Arrows Diamond from Brian Gavin which according to the AGS Laboratory measures 5.98 – 6.01 x 3.70 mm with a total depth of 61.7% with a table diameter of 55.5% and a crown angle of 34.5 degrees and a pavilion angle of 40.9 degrees with a thin to medium, faceted girdle and a pointed culet.  As with the others, the inclusions are minimal and consist merely of clouds, needles and crystals.

Setting the Birth Record Straight:

All right, so while it’s terribly entertaining to throw my friend Brian under the proverbial bus driven by satirical wit, the reality is that each of these diamonds was graded by the AGS Laboratory on a different date and thus it is highly unlikely that he produced them all at the same time… in a perfect world, I’d be able to back up my story by showing diamond grading reports which all shared the same date of publication… so it goes.  Just the same, it is extremely rare to find a matched pair of eighty pointers, let alone three and I don’t even want to try to calculate the odds of finding two matched pairs of three in the  hands of one diamond cutter at this point in time… the only reasonable explanation that I could come up with was in vitro fertilization, hey it’s all the rage right now!  And it’s a fact that a lot of the technology which is currently used by the diamond and jewelry industry was first invented and used for medical purposes…

For the record, Brian’s explanation for how it came to be that he happens to be in possession of two matched sets of diamond triplets had something to do with unrivaled production standards, consistency of production and creating his own luck… Now just in case you’re not in the market for diamond triplets (all of which may be purchased separately by the way) I found a couple of individual options which are also available for adoption:

For instance, this 0.808 carat, G-color, VS-1 clarity, Signature Hearts and Arrows Diamond from Brian Gavin made me chuckle because if it had happened to weigh just 0.001 of a carat less and been an F-color instead of a G-color, I could have spun a tale about Brian Gavin giving birth to virtually identical quadruplets!  According to the AGS Laboratory this diamond measures 5.99 – 6.01 x 3.69 mm with a total depth of 61.3% and a table diameter of 56.8% with a crown angle of 34.9 degrees offset by a pavilion angle of 40.9 degrees with a thin to medium, faceted girdle and a pointed culet.  The  primary inclusions within this diamond consist of crystal and needles and just like the other siblings it exhibits a crisp and complete pattern of hearts and arrows and looks phenomenal when viewed through both an ASET and an Ideal Scope.

This next one is just as good… 0.810 carat, F-color, VS-1 clarity, Signature Hearts and Arrows Diamond from Brian Gavin and here again, if it only weighed 0.003 carats less, Brian would have given birth to quadruplets!  According to the AGS Laboratory this diamond measures 5.95 – 5.98 x 3.69 mm and has a total depth of 61.8% with a table diameter of 57.4% and a crown angle of 34.9 degrees offset by a pavilion angle of 40.8 degrees with a thin to slightly thick, faceted girdle and a pointed culet.  The primary inclusions consist of crystals, needles and clouds.

Last but not least, we have this 0.838 carat, G-color, VS-2 clarity, Signature Hearts and Arrows Diamond from Brian Gavin which according to the AGS Laboratory measures 6.04 – 6.07 x 3.74 mm with a total depth of 61.8% and a table diameter of 56.7% with a crown angle of 34.9 degrees offset by a pavilion angle of 40.9 degrees with a thin to medium, faceted girdle and a pointed culet.  The primary inclusions consist of a feather and a few small diamond crystals, here again I opened up the high resolution version of the lab report on the AGS server to get a good look at the feather and it is inconsequential.

It goes without saying that all of these diamonds are virtually identical and thus I don’t really have a favorite pick up the litter… I truly feel that any one of these would make a phenomenal center stone for an engagement ring or they could be paired up exceptionally well for earrings or an earring and pendant set!

I hope that you enjoyed this article and invite you to contact me if I can assist you with finding the diamond of your dreams, or if you simply have a diamond related question.  And of course feel free to leave a comment below.
