If you are like me and happen to be a fan of diamonds with blue fluorescence, you are going to love this 1.496 carat, F-color, VVS-2 clarity, Brian Gavin Signature Blue Cushion cut diamond which exhibits medium blue fluorescence! Oh I am in LOVE! And you can save big on this diamond for two reasons: (1) because it falls just under the 1.50 carat mark, so you get the look of a 1.50 carat diamond, without getting hit with the price increase that occurs between the 1.49 – 1.50 carat marks; and (2) because it qualifies for the 10% discount via the NICEVVS10 Brian Gavin Coupon Code! It’s like you’re practically stealing it from Brian Gavin![separator]
There is a trick to being able to use the NICEVVS10 “Brian Gavin Diamonds Coupon Code” to buy this diamond however, but it’s a pretty simple one… Reserve the diamond by clicking on the orange “Buy Now” button on the diamond details page, and following the prompts, then call Brian Gavin Diamonds at 1.866.611.4465 and ask them to apply the “NICEVVS10” coupon from Nice Ice to the transaction… this is necessary because the shopping cart software used on their web site only allows the coupon to be applied to one product category at a time and this is the only VVS clarity cushion cut diamond available from the Brian Gavin Blue collection.
I don’t know how Brian’s diamond cutters are managing to produce these puppies just under the mark where the price increases occur, but I have to admit that if I were Brian Gavin, I’d be firing whoever is producing diamonds that fall just short of the price increase because this must be costing him a fortune! This 0.990 carat, F-color, VVS-2 clarity, Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamond would cost considerably more if it weight just one point more and weighed in at 1.00 carats.
There is a substantial increase in the price per carat (PPC) of diamonds that occurs between the 0.99 – 1.00 carat marks. Most diamond cutters would have decided to cut the diamond a little less precisely, probably by increasing the crown height, pavilion height, or girdle thickness to increase the total depth of the diamond, and push the carat weight over the 1.00 carat mark, but clearly Brian Gavin is so focused on perfection that he’s not worrying about the price tiers… this is great for you because it enables you to pick up a diamond that faces up like a one carat without incurring the price increase! This is one of those “Grab it and RUN” moments because I can’t remember the last time I saw a 0.99 carat anything cut this nicely!
Moving up over the 1.00 carat mark and out of the realm of diamonds that fall just short of the magic marks where the hidden price increases occur within the diamond market, there are a few more which peak my interest:
I find this 1.138 carat, H-color, VVS-2 clarity, Brian Gavin Signature Cushion attractive because it is well over the 1.00 carat mark, and the H-color is an affordable offset for the VVS-2 clarity grade, especially when the 10% discount available by using the Brian Gavin Diamonds Coupon of “NICEVVS10” is taken into account. And just look at how bright and consistent the pattern of light return is within the ASET image which is displayed to the left. The color red represents the brightest light being returned by the diamond, and green represents the 2nd brightest light, the combination seen in the center of the table facet is because both colors share the edge of 45°[separator]
I also like the thought of this 1.253 carat, E-color, VVS-2 clarity, Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamond because I know that the brightness created by the E-color when combined with the incredible volume of light return and sparkle factor created by this particular cut of diamond is going to be absolutely wicked and mesmerizing… If you’re a fan of precision and like things to be bright white and pristine, then this is the diamond for you!
But you can pick up a little bit of size while maintaining the internal clarity of the diamond by dropping down in color a bit by picking up this 1.553 carat, I-color, VVS-2 clarity, Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamond. Understand that the volume of light return and sparkle is going to be relatively even across all of the diamonds featured within the Brian Gavin Signature Cushion Cut collection, the primary difference is going to be the body color of the diamonds and how they look when examined through a loupe. So while this I-color diamond will be a little warmer in tone than the E-color diamond mentioned previously, it will be just as beautiful and sparkly! All you have to decide is whether you prefer something a little smaller that is a few shades brighter in color, or if you’re more focused on size than subtle differences in color… I have a funny feeling that most women would prefer the larger diamond, because that is a difference that they are more likely to see from across the dinner table.
Now if price is not really an obstacle, you can have the best of both worlds with this 1.663 carat, E-color, VVS-2 clarity, Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamond, which combines bright, white E-color, with impressive size! Who could resist a diamond such as this? Not me, that’s for sure!
And finally, I find this 3.070 carat, J-color, VVS-2 clarity, Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamond to be an incredible find because this is the first one that I’ve seen in the three carat range… not much has been produced over the two carat mark.
These are just a few of the wonderful treasures to be found within the VVS clarity diamonds that are available within the Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamond collection… Be sure to check them out and use the coupon code “NICEVVS10” at checkout to save 10% on a Brian Gavin Signature Cushion cut diamond.
