Borneo Sapphire Ring with Hidden Gems

Here's a ring that understands heartbreak and knows how to turn the experience into strength. A hard core of raw sapphires that sings songs of tomorrow, encased daintily in sweet silver, a delicate embrace to get you through your toughest days. This ring will show you what 'beauty is strength' truly means. 

Like the dark blue that sweeps through lush green leafs that paint the rainforest in a million shades of life, these ethically mined sapphires are full of the vitality and promise that the wilderness offers. Connect to one of the lungs of the earth with the sapphires that are traditionally and sustainably mined from it. 

Rich sapphire shades are snuggly cocooned in recycled silver in this ring. Dreamy colors, containing hundreds of years of lore and tradition. Verbal storytellers of the oldest kind, with remembered words and lilting cadences.

We love that the sapphires in this ring are all mined using low impact, manual methods. They were mined by hand and with wooden pans by indigenous people in Kalimantan. We share more about this partnership here. It can take days for one person to find enough sapphires to make this ring! You can read an interview with one of the miners here

Colors

You can choose between 3 colors of raw sapphire:

  • Blue sapphire
  • Forest green sapphire
  • Peach berry sapphire

Very satisfied nonetheless

This was my engagement ring and I love it ! True to size. Went down a little like recommended and it fits perfectly. Packaging was really sweet with fun details about the stone. Giving only 4 stars because I had to pay extra shipping fees for "remote area delivery" although the carrier they ship with regularly ship to my house and I never heard about my address being considered remote. Also, please note the gems are more of a dusty blueish tone. Although it's perfect for my taste and a color I really enjoy, the pictures represented show more of a white pearlescent tint than what I received. I'm very satisfied regardless but it's something that might bother someone else.

Hi Shani,

Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience and lovely photos. I'm sure your valuable feedback will help many customers when they're deciding to purchase the rough opal ring with hidden gems :)

I'm deeply sorry about the additional shipping fee and I understand your confusion. Please know that the shipping price stated upon checkout is the shipping price that Gardens of the Sun and FedEx has agreed to ship to the recipient country. Normally, FedEx or other shipping carriers are able to ship our packages to any address within the country without additional cost.

However, unfortunately, certain shipping carriers have their own policy and reasons why some areas are considered remote, hence the more expensive shipping fees. In cases like this, we'd find another shipping carrier that doesn't consider the recipient's address as remote so our clients don't have to pay for the extra shipping fee. It's unfortunate that your address is considered remote by both FedEx and DHL. You can find the list of areas FedEx and DHL consider as remote through these links:

https://www.fedex.com/content/dam/fedex/us-united-states/services/Zipcodes_OPA_ODA.pdf

I hope you understand that the remote location pricing is beyond our control and we don't have a system yet to automatically integrate the price with FedEx and DHL remote location pricing. Hopefully, a system like this will be available in the future. We'd absolutely use this to deliver a better customer experience on our website.

Yes, our rough opals have slightly different base colors and different colorful flashes. I'm so glad to hear that you love the opal shade in your ring and that it fits perfectly on you!

Again, thank you for leaving us a review. I'm excited to see your next order, Shani. Please let us know if you have another address that isn't listed as remote area or if you need any help before placing an order. We'd be happy to help!

With love,
Maharani

I have been dreaming of these rings for several years. I was finally able to make my dreams come true. I love these rings, and the meaning they have for me.

Obsessed!

I ordered this as my wedding band and its absolutely beautiful! I had to get my size made and the team was so nice and quick to respond, when I mentioned it was a wedding band they let me know about potential rubbing with a lower set engagement ring (not an issue for me) but it was great they communicated that. Its so beautiful and feels so me, I couldn't love it anymore!
