When it comes to finding the perfect diamond from the top online jewelers, we offer some great tools to help you sift through the noise. StoneAlgo only shows diamonds with real HD images from the top sites and includes light performance images when available. You can also see our custom ratings like match rating, cut quality, and savings – showing you how underpriced a diamond is compared to similar diamonds.
You can even track the price of any specific diamond over time to see if the dealer has been lowering the price, or if it’s a new diamond that just hit the market. You can even search for diamonds you’ve found elsewhere using nothing but a GIA number to see if one of the top online jewelers carries it for less. We also provide custom write-ups on over 500,000 diamonds so you know exactly what you’re buying. If it’s a diamond you want to buy, simply head over to the retailer and complete your transaction on their site.
It’s no secret in the jeweler community that Brian Gavin’s diamonds have some of the highest cut quality in the industry. In fact, Brian Gavin consistently ranks in the top 10% of all GIA excellent cut diamonds based on our StoneAlgo cut score (note: BG diamonds are graded by the AGS due to its more stringent cut quality grading system). However, with high quality comes a slightly more expensive price tag. This is why I think Brian Gavin Blue is such a great offering. Brian Gavin Blue is a line of diamonds that Brian has hand selected as the best diamonds that exhibit medium or strong blue fluorescence. Fluorescence is a luminous property that appears in about 30% of diamonds when viewed under UV light.
These diamonds typically sell at significant discount versus non-fluorescent diamonds. Brian Gavin chooses the best of these diamonds in order to pass along savings while providing buyers with the same incredible cut quality you expect from a Brian Gavin diamond. Fluorescent diamonds sell at a discount, but fluorescence can actually help make diamonds look whiter than their color grade would otherwise appear. For this reason, buyers should especially consider fluorescence when buying diamonds in the I – K range.
