Do you have a favorite store that you like to shop at just for the pleasure of the experience? You stop in and browse around even when you don''t actually need anything? That''s what Brian Gavin Diamonds is like for me...I had such a great experience buying my 1.74 RB that I decided I really NEEDED some diamond studs!

I saw two diamonds in their inventory that appeared to be a great match in table size, depth and lgf% - one is an H and one is an I but I can''t tell them apart for the life of me! Lesley assured me that they were a perfect match so I went ahead and pulled the trigger.

I really love the delicate look of Leon''s martinis and asked if they could use his design as the inspiration for my platinum setting. They came out beautifully!!!

I forgot to mention the incredible service I received with this purchase. I knew I had a good bonus coming to me which is what got me thinking of buying the studs....then I found out that my bonus was going to be delayed and along with it, my purchase of the studs.

Brian and Lesley came to my rescue and generously reserved the stones and let me pay in a couple of installments. Yippee!!

I have some ''ear shots'' but my daughter swiped my camera and took it to school so I''ll have to post them later.

Nice studs DB. Might just have to hop on a plane for a looksee! I know what you mean about Brian and Lesley. I'm not sure I need to shop anywhere else! I'm pretty sure I will end up sending them my new Rubellite, once I've got my head around what I want.

I'm going to be starting a thread on a JKT project that Lesley moved heaven and hell to help for. She was just wonderful. And when you add to that the fact that they have really nice diamonds, well it's just a marriage made in heaven isn't it.

Can't wait to see them in your ears. I see you have the Poucette posts and grip. I just love them. They don't give me a minute's worry, and so much less fiddly than screw-ons.

ETA: I just checked LM website. I think he must have posted mine on his website. The earrings shown even have the double grooves I asked for, specifically for my posts (because of my paranoia - turned out not to be necessary after all because the La Pousette backs really grip the posts very tight).

LOVE yr studs!!

I would so love a pair of really great diamond studs and that martini setting is so open and wonderful. From any angle, that diamond will shine.
