Brian Gavin Signature Series Review

Through a programmed user interface, the available stock from suppliers around the world can now be browsed by a shopper. In most cases, this resulting database is searchable using ordinary terms and filters like carat, cut, color and etc.

That’s not in the case of Brian Gavin diamonds, though. They use nifty terms like “Brian Gavin Signature“, “Brian Gavin Blue” and “Brian Gavin Select” to brand their in-house inventory. Don’t be confused by these seemingly un-ordinary names. These are diamonds that meet a set of stringent criteria established by Brian Gavin and are classified as their special collections.
