When you gave her your heart, a part of you worried she'd one day hand it back to you, broken and withered. But she tended to it until it grew, like a rose in English soil, until its glorious fragrance could no longer be ignored.
Design your own spinel engagement ring or self love ring.
Choose a spinel that speaks to you and let's get started!
We’re making this for you, from scratch
Your custom spinel ring will be made to order with the spinel of your choice in around 8 to 12 weeks. You'll receive a photo before we ship it out. The price is for one finished ring in 18 karat eco gold.
Spinel is the August birthstone and one hell of a powerful elixir. Spinel is the magical underdog. It conjures up hope, purpose and makes you feel just right in all the right places. It’s a high-energy stone and used by those who are in-the-know to attract wealth and prosperity.
Spinel pulses with life and dispenses that sweet, sweet nectar in a thick, juicy smoothie, infused with vibrancy and a jolt of heartfelt positivity.
Your custom ring design
You can choose from 18 karat yellow gold, rose gold or white gold. We use 18 karat ethical 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.
You can choose between a bezel setting, which has the gold all the way around the stone and a prong setting, where small claws hold the stone. Not sure which setting is right for you? Compare bezel vs prong setting here.
Diamonds in band
Want to add some extra sparkle? Pave diamonds in the ring band can really elevate the look of your ring. Choose between salt and pepper diamonds (the rebellious budget option) or white diamonds (G-H color, SI clarity).
Engraving is on us
We offer complimentary engraving on the inside of your ring to personalize it even more. Our team will reach out to you after your purchase for details.

My fiancé and I picked out my engagement ring from Gardens of the Sun and I couldn’t be happier with it. The process of picking out the stone, setting and band was so much fun, and the team at Gardens of the Sun was so helpful in sending pictures and mock-ups! I’ve received so many compliments on my ring, and it’s so beautiful and unique!

Easy process and good advice
I have only the best to say about the company and the special piece for myself that I created with them. It is every bit so special and beautyful as I could hope and expect. And the customer-service is flawless with quick and easy contacts and good advice (especially since I got second thoughts about wich size to choose).

The most unique wedding set
I dreamed of owning a hexagon diamond ring by Gardens of the Sun, years before my proposal. When it became my time to design my custom set, the team could not have been more helpful in creating a unique piece of wearable art. Maharani suggested a silver wedding band with blue sapphires to compliment my hexagon salt & pepper diamond ring set in gold - and while I had not originally envisioned my gold ring with a silver band, I was truly blown away by the end result! The rings just fit together so perfectly, and compliment each other in the most gorgeous way. I get compliments daily on how beautiful my ring set is! I've never seen another set quite like mine, and I love it even more knowing that it was designed specifically for me. Thank you to the Gardens of the Sun team for creating such a magical, dreamy set of jewelry that I will cherish for a lifetime!!
Two rings, a story, and a lot of heart.
Like every good love story, we wanted our wedding and engagement rings to be unique and true to the love that inspired them. That's a lot to ask of jewelry, and I truly believe that Gardens of the Sun is the only company that could live up to that lofty vision. Friends and family are sick to death of us talking about our rings, but every time I look at my finger I smile, and what kind of value can you place on that? The entire experience was a delight. Thank you GOTS team. We love your impeccable work!
