Let us build the ethical dream ring for the woman of your dreams. It's important to her that the ring she wears for the rest of her life to symbolize your commitment to her, has been ethically made and sourced. 

Choose your favourite sapphire

Each of these sapphires has been mined in Dry Cottonwood Creek, Montana. The crystals were then heated in the USA. Many of them have orange coloration due to higher levels of magnesium in those areas of the crystal. 

These stones are more flat and therefore not really suitable for traditional brilliant cut. Each stone was cut by hand in Ratnapura, Sri Lanka.

Now the design...

This dream is yours to design. Over to you now.

Sapphire setting

  • Classic bezel setting with the gold all the way around the sapphire
  • Basket 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.

Band shape

  • Half round band, flat on the inside and rounded on the outside, for a comfortable fit. Around 1.8 mm wide. 
  • 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. 
  • Tapered split shank band. The band tapers off to a thinner section and splits into two where the sapphire is set.

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)

Additional stones on the side with bezel or 3-prong setting

  • Salt and pepper diamonds around 2.5 mm
  • Purplish blue Yogo sapphires, also from Montana, around 2 mm
  • Soft peachy pink spinels in high quality pentagon cut. With their unusual cuts this makes for a unique three stone ring!

      The price will be automatically adjusted depending on the stones and design you choose. 

      Engraving is on us!

      We offer complimentary hand engraving up to 24 characters on the inside of your gold sapphire 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.

      I wouldn't normally purchase a mystery item because I like to choose my own thing - but I am so glad I did because Meri and the Gardens of the Sun team knew exactly what I needed. Reading the little stone explanation cards reinforced that they knew better than I did :) The ring and necklace set are perfect and so well made and are my new daily go to. This wasn't my first GotS purchase and it definitely wont be my last!
