Rough Borneo Ruby Ring with Hidden Gems

She was addicted to love. Not the real thing - not the unconditional love and compassion one can feel for oneself. She indulged in the short-term pleasure of feeling wanted. The quick fix of external validation. It was an escape from being with herself.

Ruby is the birthstone of July, and is associated with all forms of love, from faithful and courtly commitment to wild and passionate sensuality.

This ring features ethically sourced rubies. Their color is between red ruby and pink sapphire. We buy them straight from a group of indigenous people in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. They receive fair pay, and we can guarantee you that these rubies are conflict free and untreated. 

It can take weeks for one person to find enough of these rough rubies to make a ring. Trust me when I say that this pink ruby ring is something truly special. 

This ethical ruby ring looks fabulous when stacked witha blue hauyne ring or spinel ring from the same collection.

    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

    perfect

    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!
