Hello! I am in need of some feedback from those of you who have a Brian Gavin DBTY piece. I have a Tiffany rose gold DBTY necklace which I love and wear everyday and adore. I also fell in love with the Tiffany bracelet with five .07 diamonds but at $2,900 it's just way too expensive. I reached out to BG and they will make me a custom one with the same size stones in 18k RG for a LOT less... But I'm scared to buy something custom I can't return without seeing it first. I'm worried the metal or bezels will look different than my pendant. Does anybody have any guidance or photos of their pieces from BG to post? I know Thanks in advance!!

I am sorry that I can't speak to BG pieces specifically, but I have a 36" DBTY necklace and bracelet from Whiteflash that I absolutely love!!! I feel that it is equal in quality to Tiffany, and the diamonds are probably better. The prices are incredibly better. So I'd never buy DBTY from Tiffany, but I do have other Tiffany pieces. You aren't going to see minor differences in bezels that small from your neck to your wrist anyway. I wouldn't think twice about it.

Here are pictures of the necklace and bracelet.

I also can't speak directly to BGD DBTY since mine is a necklace and is also from WF. Like you, I went to Tiffany's to try them on before I ordered but couldn't justify the price tag at all. My bezels are just a delicate and the diamonds are incredible.

Just wanted to point you in the direction of a few threads that might be helpful to you:

Hiya! :wavey:

I actually own a bracelet I bought pre-loved that was bezeled by BGD. Here are a couple comparison shots of bezels by various vendors:
1. IDJ DBTY earring
2. BGD dbty bracelet
3. BE dbty necklace
4. BN bar bracelet

the BGD dbty bezel is the most delicate/thinnest of the bunch.

I bought two DBTY (single stone) from BGD for myself and 2 bracelets and one necklace from IDJ for DDs. I also have a Tiffany CBTY and here is the link:

I personally love BGD and the bezel is more delicate compared to Tiffany's bezel setting. I feel like a I see more of the metal w the Tiffany setting. I would not hesitate to go with BGD and would highly recommend them. I feel that you get more for your $ and you are not get beautiful quality work. My 70 year old mother loved my necklace so much that we just got her a .5 DBTY necklace.

Good luck w your decision!
