Borneo Shield Diamond Ring in Yellow Gold

Size Guide

Even after tasting all her complex flavors, and seeing her technicolor dreams, and touching her jagged edges and feeling her soft center; she was still so simple, it was all so simple: there is love and there is she, and that's all that there is.


  • 18 karat yellow gold, mined with traditional and low impact practices by indigenous Dayak women in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, who receive fair pay
  • 0.54 ct shield cut light yellow diamond from South Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo
  • Comes with a diamond certificate from the government-owned LPSB lab, unfortunately the certificate has been damaged at the top during transit
  • Ethically sourced and conflict free
  • One of a kind


The modern shield cut diamond is a real eye-catcher. She's a very pale yellow, which means that she doesn't look yellow from a distance, but rather like a warm disco party with copious amounts of champagne. 

The ethically sourced diamond weighs just over half a carat. Think: the perfect size for everyday wear. 

According to the diamond certificate report:

  • Triangle modified brilliant cut
  • Weighs 0.54 ct and measures 5.63 x 5.22 x 2.72 mm
  • Cut grade is good with good polish and symmetry
  • Clarity grade is SI2 with noticeable inclusions, namely crystal, cleavage and natural 
  • Color grade is faint yellow (M) with medium blue fluorescence (LW)

So why is this diamond ethically sourced? Rarely will you know where your diamond comes from, as they're traded in large batches and mixed in the process. For this stone, we personally went to South Kalimantan to visit the diamond mines on the rubber plantations of the locals and met with the cutters. We know that thus stone was mined and cut in Indonesian Borneo, where all diamonds are mined and cut on a small scale rather than by large corporations. 

The diamond has been securely set in 18 karat gold. This gold was responsibly mined by indigenous Dayak women in Central Kalimantan, who receive a 20% premium for their gold in exchange for using low impact techniques that are free of mercury and cyanide. 

We only get small batches of this gold, because traditional gold panning means they only get very small particles of gold, which combines into less than a gram a day. Your ring is a true labor of love. 

Would make a wonderful ethical engagement ring or wedding band for the couple who wants a guilt-free ring to symbolize their love. This is that ring.

A Kind Of Magic

My Geometric Moonstone Ring have just arrived, and it is far more formidable than the picture! I am in love with it! There is something very special about the Moonstone — something magical — I can see a delicade glimpse of a rambow at it! And the format of cathedral setting is perfect to higlight it's beauty. <3

In love!

This was my first time ordering and I was so pleasantly surprised with everything. The ring itself is gorgeous, it’s a perfect size and the stone is so pretty when the light hits it! The packaging had so many little touches that left me feeling so happy with my order.

I am in love with this ring!

When I first saw this ring on instagram I could not look away, I knew it was meant for me. The whole experience was wonderful. From the email confirmation message to the beautiful, precious, unboxing that was just so special and experiential. I am just so pleased!!

The tiny sparkles are unbelievable!

I’ve purchased a white diamond for “build your own ring” and the Embraced Emerald Ring. Both exceeded my expectation in their sparkle-power. They are not overpowering but enough to draw a bit of attention to them. I love stacking them together and couldn’t be more happier
