Let us help you design and build an ethical sapphire ring for the woman of your dreams. If you are reading this, it probably means that it's important to both of you that the symbol of love and commitment she carries for the rest of her life has been ethically made and sourced.

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

Stone settings:

  • Classic bezel setting with gold all the way around the sapphire
  • Open bezel setting, which goes around the girdle (edges) of the sapphire, but exposes the culet (the bottom) of the stone
  • 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 the prongs. So white gold prongs need more care and maintenance. 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.

Band shape:

  • Half round band, flat on the inside and rounded on the outside, for a comfortable fit. Around 1.6 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 1.2 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)

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 2-2.5 mm
  • Soft peachy pink spinels in high quality pentagon cut. With their unusual cuts this makes for a unique three stone ring!

The final price will be automatically adjusted depending on the stones and design you choose.

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. We mix this gold ourselves, in-house. There may be minor color variants between rings, as the gold we receive from the miners also has small variations in level of refinement and still contain some trace metals..
