A made to order diamond engagement ring, geo cut for those protective vibes with an ethical diamond of your choice. We have diamonds from Indonesia, Canada and Australia. Talk about a unique diamond engagement ring! 

Now the design...

Choose a diamond that speaks to you and let's get started!

Diamond settings:

  • Classic bezel setting with gold all the way around the diamond
  • Open bezel setting, which goes around the girdle (edges) of the sapphire, but exposes the culet (the bottom) of the stone
  • Prongs
    • Prongs only; The prongs rise up from the base of the ring, without any additional support or security.
    • Wire basket prongs; The prongs rise up from the base of the ring, with a thin wire around halfway at the pavillion (underside) of the stone for extra support.
    • Basket prongs; The prongs rise up from a base or 'basket' into which the gemstone or diamond is set. This offers more security, but can look bulkier than prongs only, especially when the stone has a higher profile.

Number of prongs:

  • 4 prongs compass, positioned North, East, South and West
  • 4 prongs in the corners
  • 5 prongs (recommended only for stones over 5 mm)
  • 6 prongs (recommended only for stones over 5 mm)

Our white gold is rhodium plated, and the rhodium plating tends to wear off over time. It wears off faster around the areas that get most wear, in this case, the prongs. So white gold prongs need more care and maintenance than a white gold bezel, or than yellow or rose gold prongs.

For stones over 3.5 mm deep, we recommend an open bezel setting rather than a regular bezel setting. This will avoid the bezel setting looking too "chunky" considering the stone has a high profile.

The diamond can be positioned vertically (North to South) or horizontally (East to West). 

Band shape:

  • Half round band, flat on the inside and rounded on the outside, for a comfortable fit. Around 1.8 mm wide. Can be engraved. 
  • Round band, this band tends to spin more and is not recommend if your knuckles are wider than the part of your finger where the ring sits. Around 1.3 mm wide. No engraving possible. 

Additional small stones in the band:

  • Plain band, no additional diamonds
  • Small sparkling white Canadian diamonds (G-H color, SI clarity) - you choose how many
  • Small salt and pepper diamonds (you choose how many)

Engraving is on us!

We offer complimentary hand engraving up to 24 characters on the inside of your gold diamond ring to personalize it even more. This is only possible for half round bands, as the round bands are too dainty, and can be selected in the dropdown menu.

Our signature ethical gold

We use 18 karat eco-gold, which is mined and processed with traditional, mercury-free low-impact practices by indigenous Dayak women in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, who receive fair pay. Our white gold is rhodium plated.

The diamonds in this collection come with a diamond certificate, diamond memo or a certificate of origin. The diamond memo is less complete, and issued for the smaller diamonds of lower value. This diamond certificate may by the LPSB lab certificate, which is a government lab, or by the South Kalimantan Gem Laboratory, a women-owned gem lab. Both labs employ GIA Graduate Gemologists.

Our style tip: wear yours as an alternative engagement ring or a protective self-love ring.

Beautiful ring

We were very happy to find our perfect engagement ring with Gardens of the Sun. We were looking for a beautiful and ethical ring and this more than answered. The team were very helpful and patient with us while we decided on the exact one we were after and even did all they could to make sure it could arrive in time for my birthday in the middle of the pandemic postal situation! We were very impressed and beyond happy with the ring when it arrived.
