The showstopper of this ring is a 7.5 x 4.1 x 2.7 mm spinel in a sweet mauve scissor cut. I picked up this gemstone from Ratnapura in Sri Lanka when I was there in December 2018. It was mined and cut in Sri Lanka.
The bicolor spinel has a soft purple to mauve color and a beautiful golden cloud in the center. It's set with prongs in a wire basket setting and flanked by three Canadian diamonds on each side.
Spinel is a gemstone for joy, intuition and grounding.
You'll receive the one of a kind spinel and diamond ring from the photos.

I had put the title as 'ONE OF A KIND' for several reasons. First off this is truly a one of a kind ring, no one except my beautiful soon to be wife will ever get the satisfaction of wearing such a treasure. Second it comes from a one of a kind company, a company who sources their metal and precious stones conflict free , helping many people along the way. Not to mention planting FIVE trees with your purchase, what companies do you know sacrifices profit for such a beautiful way of business? Third which should have been first is the one of a kind customer service and business ethics. I have always been the skeptical one out of my fiancé and I, especially when it comes to online ANYTHING lol However this team of ladies is truly something special and the ones to admire. Any question or concern I may have had Maharani was right there to answer and ease each and every one of them. The ring not only made it to the United States in less then a week but it was more perfect then any of the photos had shown.(Not to mention it came all the way from Bali, Indonesia) So what I'm saying is if there is any doubt on whether to go through Gardens of the Sun, put that doubt to bed. This company is truly ONE OF A KIND and as a happily engaged man, I stand by every word. I'm still not sure if she wants to marry me more or this company more ;)

Cannot recommend enough (but at the same time want to keep it all to myself!)
Beautiful and meaningful, sparkly and colourful, sophisticated and fun. I feel very fancy when wearing this ring, which is a good thing during these grey months when neat outfits rarely leave my closet. But most of all, a true heirloom piece which I hope will stay in our family for generations. I bought the pink Ceylon spinel ring as a gift to myself, to celebrate the long longed-for birth of our firstborn daughter. As always, Tessa was extremely kind and helpful during the process of resizing the ring, and was even able to make sure the ring got engraved, even though I forgot to ask for the engraving when placing my order. I always marvel at the kindness and patience of GotS customer service, and unpacking the lovingly wrapped jewelry boxes and reading the handwritten notes truly sparks joy.

I absolutely adore my gardens of the sun ring. My fiance and I picked it out together. It's so beautiful and unique, and more than I could have dreamed... I can't stop looking at it. It arrived beautifully packaged and didn't take long to arrive.
Highly recommend gardens of the sun.

Easy and swift communication from the start. Good advice on taking the ring measures (the ring fits really well), nice packaging, the ring was even more beautiful in real. Knowing where the pieces come from and knowing with how much love and care the ring is made, makes it a precious piece. I am saving for earings :-)
