BCD is "boron carbide diamelle" -- a popular diamond simulant that legally must be designated as such.

And before I get a lot of angry pushback: this is a joke.

No, wait! It's "Blood-Conflict Diamond." Just a State Department thing.

When I bought my EC from Diamondhouse in Antwerp back in 2004 in person, I was given the option whether to laser-inscribe the HRD certificate number on the girdle of the stone before it was set, and I said yes.

Never saw it in person as it was bezel set soon afterwards.

That was my first thought, Brian Gavin Diamond

Is it possible it might have said “BGD” instead?
Perhaps Brian Gavin?
It was my first thought as well but I have pair of studs from him and he has his name fully spelled out and imprinted as Brian Gavin in his signature font.
