    There's no shortage of possibilities. This is your chance to design your own natural  diamond engagement ring or self love ring.

    Now the design...

    Choose a diamond that speaks to you and let's get started!

    Diamond settings:

    • Classic bezel setting with gold all the way around the diamond. Looks nice on more shallow stones up to 3.5 mm deep. 
    • Open bezel setting, which goes around the girdle (edges) of the diamond, but exposes the culet (the bottom) of the stone. Looks nice on deeper stones over 3-3.5 mm deep. 
    • Prongs
      • Prongs only
      • Basket prongs. A basket setting is a type of prong setting, but with a little difference when viewed from the side or profile. The prongs will rise up from a base or 'basket' into which the gemstone is set.
        • 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.

      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.

      The diamond can be positioned vertically (North to South) or horizontally (East to West). 

      Band shape:

      • Half round band, flat on the inside and rounded on the outside, for a comfortable fit. Around 1.8 mm wide. Can be engraved. 
      • 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. No engraving possible. 

      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)

      Engraving is on us!

      We offer complimentary hand engraving up to 24 characters on the inside of your gold diamond 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.

          Wonderful experience and product

          This amazing group of humans were so gracious and responsive when I had to exchange a ring for a different size. I was even able to switch to a custom ring!
          I love my new piece and everything was taken care of so quickly, efficiently, and with great communication through out. Would highly recommend ☺️

          A dream come true

          What a special experience this has been. I have been following Gardens of the Sun on Instagram for 2 years and their rings have always captured my attention. I knew when the time came to choose where to purchase my engagement ring from the choice would be easy, Gardens of the Sun. Your team has been incredibly helpful, always answering my questions in a timely fashion and making any changes my heart desired. When the ring showed up on my doorstep my stomach filled with butterflies. I opened up the package and there wrapped with love was exactly what I had envisioned, my dream engagement ring.

          Love,
          A lifelong customer

          LOVE LOVE LOVE, but long wait time!

          First, let me say that I am OBSESSED with my custom blue sapphire engagement ring. I had the stone set in an open bezel in 14K gold. Everytime I look at it, it makes me smile. My friends and family love how unique and "me" it is. 5 stars for this!

          That said, we ordered this ring in mid-December, and did not receive it until mid May! While I appreciate the fact that Garden of the Sun held their jewelry maker to a high standard of quality (twice!), I had to be the one to reach out and see what the status of my ring was. I will say that the customer service representative answering my emails was super helpful in giving me updates, but it would have been nice to not have to be the one reaching out the two times the ring was sent back to the jewelry maker. Fortunately we didn't have a specific timeframe that it was needed for, but 5 months seems like a really long time to wait for a custom piece!

          Hi Caitlin,

          Thank you so much for your review! We're pleased to hear that you LOVE your custom blue sapphire ring. That makes our day.

          We gotta thank you as well for being so understanding and patient, waiting for your ring to arrive. As you know, we've had some setbacks a few months ago related to our gold supplies, where we temporarily paused new custom gold orders coming in and had some significant delays in our existing orders, including yours.

          Your feedback is well noted - we should've been more proactive in reaching out to you and keeping you updated about the progress. We're definitely taking it as a lesson learned for our team to be able to improve our communication in a timely manner should unexpected delays like this happen in the future.

          Always let us know if you need anything. Sending our warmest hugs to you and to your beloved ones there!

          Much love from Bali,
          GotS

          Even more beautiful in person!

          My necklace looks exactly how I imagined and even more beautiful. The photos of the stone are very flattering, but they don't show just how the stone reflects light from every single direction. I highly recommend you make your dream necklace come true. You won't regret it!
