A new class of diamond.

Black by Brian GavinTM is more than a collection of diamonds. It’s the culmination of five generations of knowledge and expertise, the result of unyielding dedication to precision craftsmanship, and the stunning tribute to life’s most important moments.

The Black by Brian GavinTM difference

Eclipsing all other diamonds in their light performance, the diamonds in the Black by Brian GavinTM collection represent a new level of diamond selection, cutting, and presentation.

A Black by Brian GavinTM is a wonder of nature mixed with the precision of storied craftsmanship.

The Gavin EffectTM Cut

A breakthrough in light optimization in diamonds.

Light is everything when it comes to diamonds. The way the light catches a diamond during a pivot or a gesture. The hypnotic movement of light as it dazzles the eye—captivating the viewer and drawing them close.

Light performance is what separates Black by Brian GavinTM from other diamonds—this dazzling light performance is due to a patent pending diamond cutting technique, which is the result of years of extensive experimentation and diamond research. You can be assured a Gavin EffectTM diamond meets our strictest and most exacting quality requirements.

To achieve our strictest and most exacting light performance requirements for the Gavin EffectTM cut in every diamond in the Black by Brian GavinTM collection, we select the finest possible natural diamond material. Then we follow a meticulous and proprietary process to optimize secondary angles, symmetry, and reflective potential. We then inspect each diamond to ensure that it meets the pinnacle of our demanding light performance standards for the Gavin EffectTM.

The result is a diamond that has Impeccable PerformanceTM, Exacting PrecisionTM and Incomparable BeautyTM. And you're guaranteed to find it with Black by Brian GavinTM.

The Angular Spectrum Evaluation Tool®, or ASET, was developed by AGS to demonstrate, in red, green, and blue colors, the light performance of a diamond (how it handles and returns light to our eyes). See the following examples below. Both ASET images achieve the 0 for light performance grade. However, the one on the left displays “Low-intensity light zones" beneath the table. While the one on the right has been optimized for Gavin EffectTM. All diamonds in the Black by Brian GavinTM collection will have the most exacting ASET image possible.

Extreme light performance—so you get the most vibrant reflective qualities and the most hypnotizing sparkle imaginable.
