Emerald glows lush green in abundance for the May babe. It helps you stay sharp in the mind, soft in the soul, and successful in life.
What would you say if you were May’s birthstone, the emerald? Maybe that you’ve seen a lot? From your days merrymaking in the markets of Babylon to being a worshipped vessel of goddesses by the Incas, then making cameos in Egypt, Greece, India…well, well, aren’t you the little jet-setter. Yes, the emerald is a connoisseur of culture, a most wanted superstar. But that’s not all… They say holding one in your hand for five minutes a day helps mental acuity. Want to know more?
Every emerald has unique inclusions; the fingerprints of Mother Nature run through each and every one. That's what makes an emerald beautiful and it’s really the only gemstone where inclusions are embraced as being a very positive thing.
Just like Mother Nature’s succulence, Emerald is a powerful stone that’s overflowing with richness. A cornucopia of sorts, if you will. It provides mental calm and emotional equilibrium. It’s the proverbial chill pill, and it’s also sexy as hell.
If only the emerald could talk – it has a long, rich history; from its days merrymaking in the markets of Babylon to being a worshipped vessel of goddesses by the Incas, then making cameos in Egypt, Greece, India…the list goes on. The emerald is a connoisseur of culture, a most wanted superstar.
These days, the emerald is still a go-to support stone. They say holding one in your hand for five minutes a day helps mental acuity; carrying an emerald out of sight, near your heart attracts romance; and whispering words of love into an emerald then sealing it in an envelope to send to a long-lost love will rekindle the fire. Zing!
This company is absolutely amazing. I decided last minute that I wanted a wedding band made in addition to my custom engagement ring. I sent the ring back a few months later, and it got lost in the mail. Their customer service was AMAZING. They provided updates as soon as they got them, they reached out to everyone to find my ring, and let me know when it arrived safely. They completely suppressed my anxiety around the whole situation. They ask questions when crafting instead of making assumptions, and even sent progress pictures. I could not be more thrilled with Gardens of the Sun and will definitely be telling everyone I know about them! In addition to all this, I got to support a women run company with the same environmental views I have. It is so cool to have a story behind my beautiful, one of a kind, wedding ring and I could not be happier with the end result! They even sent a little gift at the end of the whole journey! 10/10 recommend.
I love my new ring! I've had a white gold and diamond band for the past 6 yrs but it doesn't really match my style (I'm more of a boho hippie free spirit type). My husband replaced his wedding band with a pretty wooden band that has my birthstone, turquoise, inlaid in it, so I also replaced my wedding band with my husband's birthstone. I LOVE IT! It's perfect! It's dainty and really matches my style a lot better than before. Plus, I love all of the sustainability efforts of the company. Really pleased with my purchase.
Not only is the ring exactly what I wanted, the entire process of working with the Gardens of the Sun staff to design my teensy polki diamond ring was so sweet. I loved the photos shared along the way and multiple opportunities to alter design if desired. I feel great about wearing my ring and supporting this ethical company!
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).
So happy with my purchase. The ring fits perfectly-sizing is spot on. The colour of gem and the shaping/style of thr ring is beautiful. So much love and care for this company is shown through thr packaging - the environmentally friendly pretty box. The notes and little flower inside.. best packaging I've ever seen! Thank you
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!
