If you know anything about diamonds, then you know that anything in the 1.90 – 1.99 carat range is extremely rare, due to the substantial price increase that occurs between the 1.99 – 2.00 carat marks. This is why diamonds weighing between 1.90 – 1.99 carats are heavily sought after. Diamonds weighing just short of two carats offer tremendous savings as compared with two carat diamonds. Thus if you’ve been looking for a two carat Brian Gavin Signature princess cut diamond, you should seriously consider this 1.930 carat, G-color, SI-1 clarity, BGD Signature Princess cut diamond. This Brian Gavin Signature princess cut diamond 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!
The first thing to understand about princess cut diamonds is that it is not possible to predict the light return and visual performance of a princess cut diamond. Only the visual performance of round brilliant cut diamonds can be estimated by the numbers. The facet structure of a princess cut diamond is not symmetrical, and thus I truly prefer the Light Performance grading platform provided by the American Gem Society Laboratory, which uses Angular Spectrum Evaluation Technology (ASET) to measure brightness. It also provides a visual impression of how evenly light is reflecting throughout this 1.930 carat, G-color, SI-1 clarity, BGD Signature Princess cut diamond. All of that red color indicates that this diamond is going to be extremely bright and lively! This is exactly the type of high end ideal princess cut diamond, that Brian Gavin is well known for![separator]
One of the critical factors that determines the type of light return and sparkle that will be exhibited by a princess cut diamond is the number of chevron facets that are polished on to the lower half of the diamond. I find princess cut diamonds with two or three chevron facets to be the most visually appealing, since it produces broad spectrum sparkle that is larger in size, and which is brighter, bolder, and more vibrant!
As with all Brian Gavin Signature Princess cut diamonds currently being produced, this 1.930 carat, G-color, SI-1 clarity, BGD Signature Princess cut diamond features three chevron facets on the pavilion side of the diamond. This combined with the ideal proportions, and excellent optical precision, ensures that this diamond is going to delight the senses!
The primary inclusions within this 1.930 carat, G-color, SI-1 clarity, BGD Signature Princess cut diamond consist of a diamond crystal, and a cluster of pinpoint size diamond crystals that is referred to as a cloud. The primary inclusions are located in the center of the table facet, and are nothing but tiny diamond crystals that were trapped within the larger diamond crystal as it formed. No big deal. There is also a tiny feather indicated in the lower right hand corner of the diamond in the upper plotting diagram on the lab report, this is also not an issue since the feather does not run through the stone, e.g. it is not indicated in the lower half of the diamond on the lab report.
This BGD Signature Princess cut diamond just cleared the AGS Laboratory on May 06, 2015 so it is still in the process of being photographed by Brian Gavin. Don’t wait for the photographs to be posted to purchase it, or it is likely to be gone… This 1.930 carat, G-color, SI-1 clarity, BGD Signature Princess cut diamond is a rare enough size, that somebody is going to recognize it for the rare opportunity that it presents and snatch it up!
