Let us build your ethical dream ring! 

Now the design...

Select your fave peridot from our gemstone vault, to build your custom dream ring.

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

Peridot settings:

  • Classic bezel setting with gold all the way around the stone
  • Open bezel setting, which goes around the girdle (edges) of the peridot, but exposes the culet (the bottom) of the stone
  • Prongs
    • 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.

If you choose an irregular shaped peridot, we can send you sketches to see some prong placement options, and you can request to position the stone horizontal or vertical.

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.

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. 

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 from Montana, around 2 mm

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 peridot 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.

We're making this for you, from scratch

Your custom peridot ring will be made to order with the peridot of your choice in around 8 to 10 weeks. You'll receive a photo before we ship it out. The price is for one finished ring in 18 karat eco gold.

Since your ring will be made especially for you, we don’t accept returns on custom orders.

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!
