You're a special kind of human - you care what you give, not just what you take.
By now, you know we're all about ethical jewelry.
By now, you might know we partner with indigenous women miners in Indonesian Borneo to go mercury free.
You might know these women are getting paid a premium to ditch mercury and cyanide, and opt for a safer and more sustainable way to mine gold.
On top of that, they pledged to go deforestation free too.
By supporting indigenous women to mine gold in better ways, we're not only creating a healthier and safer workplace for these women. We're also helping them make more money. And with more money, they can make better choices for their family’s futures.
But there's more to it than just that.
You see, the gold supply is dwindling, and they‘re panning less gold every single day.
That's why we're setting up a microfinance fund.
This fund offers these women the financial opportunities they need to set up their own small businesses and become financially independent.
Your support means so much more than a transaction.
For every dainty signet ring sold, $100 will go to a micro-finance fund for the women miners who mined the gold for these rings.
By choosing ethical gold, you're not only getting something beautiful. You're making a statement about the kind of world you want to live in - one that gives a damn about workers' rights and the environment. You're showing that you care about people and the planet.
Talk about an extraordinary way to make a real difference in our world.
So go ahead, show the world what you stand for.
We have a US size 5.5 ring in stock. This one is engraved with a gold pan and 3 gold flakes, the logo of the women's gold mining group we partner with for our ethical gold.
Other sizes can be made to order with the hand engraving of your choice. This takes around 6 to 9 weeks.
Our signature ethical 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.
This minimal signet ring for women stacks easily with your other gold rings. It can also easily be worn on its own.
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!
