Emerald

Let us build your ethical dream ring! 

Your ring will be made to order with the emerald of your choice in around 6 to 8 weeks. The design of this custom ring is where you come in! You'll receive a photo before we ship it out. The price is for one finished ring in 18 karat eco 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.

Emerald setting

  • Classic bezel setting with the gold all the way around the stone
  • Open bezel setting, which goes around the girdle (edges) of the emerald, but exposes the culet (the bottom) of the stone
  • Prongs
    • 4 prongs compass, positioned North, East, South and West  (round emerald)
    • 4 prongs in the corners (round or hexagon emerald)
    • 4 prongs on the sides (hexagon emerald)
    • 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. 
  • 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. 

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 mm

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