Black by Brian Gavin 30-Pointers


Here is a list of Black by Brian Gavin 30-pointers that I have picked out. Preference is from top to bottom, but ultimately, it is up to individual preference:

0.316ct D VS1
USD 931
Calculated weight: 4.37 x 4.39 x 2.71 x 0.0061 = 0.313ct
Actual weight: 0.316ct
https://black.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond-details/bkcags-104093587070?a_aid=myengexp
Remark: My favourite piece among all current 30-pointers. Why? Great colour, great clarity level, and 75% lower girdle facet makes me expect a lot of bold flashes from this diamond.

0.327ct E VS1
USD 890
Calculated weight: 4.44 x 4.46 x 2.73 x 0.0061 = 0.330ct
Actual weight: 0.327ct
https://black.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond-details/bkcags-104093587078?a_aid=myengexp
Remark: Value for money. Size also not bad. Proportions will return great fire as it small table and high crown height. Contrast level, clarity level, colour level is also great.

0.330ct F VS1
USD 881
Calculated weight: 4.44 x 4.45 x 2.74 x 0.0061 = 0.330ct
Actual weight: 0.330ct
https://black.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond-details/bkcags-104093587042?a_aid=myengexp
Remark: Not bad, but if USD 9 difference can have a better colour, then the 0.327ct E VS1 wins. There is also a small feather close to the edge of the diamond's pavilion at the 12 o'clock position, but this looks very safe to me. Besides, this is a VS1 diamond. roportions will return great fire as it small table and high crown height.

0.346ct F VS2
USD 891
Calculated weight: 4.52 x 4.54 x 2.78 x 0.0061 = 0.348ct
Actual weight: 0.346ct
https://black.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond-details/bkcags-104095881018?a_aid=myengexp
Remark: Not bad, can consider if want to go for size. Bigger than most stones here. Better value than the 0.345ct E VS2. Everything checks out pretty good. Prefer this over the 0.338ct F VS1.

0.338ct D VS2
USD 977
Calculated weight: 4.46 x 4.48 x 2.77 x 0.0061 = 0.338ct
Actual weight: 0.338ct
https://black.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond-details/bkcags-104093587074?a_aid=myengexp
Remark: This one looks like a high VS2, close to VS1, which is good. 34.4 degree crown angle may be the lowest among all but it can still return pretty great fire I believe. This is due to its small table and high crown height.

0.336ct E VS1
USD 966
Calculated weight: 4.43 x 4.45 x 2.75 x 0.0061 = 0.331ct
Actual weight: 0.336ct
https://black.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond-details/bkcags-104093587077?a_aid=myengexp
Remark: Not bad. But I prefer the 0.338ct D VS2 more, for better colour grade and perhaps slightly bigger size.

0.332ct E VVS1
USD 966
Calculated weight: 4.44 x 4.46 x 2.76 x 0.0061 = 0.333ct
Actual weight: 0.332ct
https://black.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond-details/bkcags-104093587075?a_aid=myengexp
Remark: The arrow head at the 10 o'clock position seems to be slightly titled to the right. The arrow shaft of the heart at the 11 o'clock position also looks smaller than the rest. But then, I am just being picky! If you want fire, colour, clarity, contrast, you won't be disappointed by this diamond. The 75% lower girdle facet will return bold sparks as well and this diamond seems to cut to maximum fire. The size of this diamond is also not bad!

0.338ct F VS1
USD 907
Calculated weight: 4.47 x 4.50 x 2.77 x 0.0061 = 0.340ct
Actual weight: 0.338ct
https://black.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond-details/bkcags-104095881001?a_aid=myengexp
Remark: The shafts of the hearts at the 3 o'clock region is a bit smaller than preferreed though. The arrow head on the ASET seems to be slighly tilted to the right as well. But overall, should return great fire based on proportions.

0.345ct E VS2
USD 929
Calculated weight: 4.52 x 4.54 x 2.78 x 0.0061 = 0.348ct
Actual weight: 0.345ct
https://black.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond-details/bkags-104095241035?a_aid=myengexp
Remark: Referring to the ASET image, the arrow head at the 11 o'clock position is very slightly moved to the right. 77% lower girdle facet, although is higher than the others here, but it can still return some seriously good sparks. Bigger than most stones here.

The price range is approximately between to RM 3900.00 - RM 4300.00, assuming the exchange rate from MoneyMatch is at 4.12.

Memory Jewellery solitaire ring setting is around RM 1000 for non-custom made setting, while between RM 1300 - RM 1500 for custom made setting. Taking the maximum RM 1500, the final ring price will be approximately RM 5400 - RM 5800.
