The green sapphire is set in an open bezel setting that allows light to come in from the sides of the stone.
It's flanked by 5 tiny diamonds set playfully in the shank. These Canadian diamonds are from responsible origin, traded in line with the Kimberley Process Certificate System.
The sapphire measures 5.3 mm in width, and 3.8 mm in height. It was mined by hand by artisanal miners in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. These miners are indigenous Dayak men and women, who received a fair price for their rough sapphires.
This round sapphire boasts multiple shades of green, like a happy patch of leaves. To get this sapphire, our founder, Meri, travelled 3 days into the remote jungles of Borneo. She slept in a tiny village along the river, and mined together with the miners.
The rough sapphire has been cut by Scott Maier in Vermont, USA. It has a beautiful precision cut that really brings out the vibrant green color.
You can see how this sapphire is fully traceable from mine to ring, and why we dare to say it's been ethically sourced!
At first glance, sapphire gleams with power and strength, but its true colors shine within kindness and hope – that’s the stone’s real secret sauce. Sapphire lets us get real because it offers protection, discipline, insight and healing. She carries great wisdom of intuitive truth and memories of the elders. A symbol of friendship and peace, and a shield for negative energy.
Our signature ethical gold
We use 18 karat ethical 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. This gold is as ethical and sustainable as it gets.

Beautiful and simple
I loved how I was updated along the way and the care they put into designing my ring. I expected it to take a lot longer and they got it done so quickly I already have my ring. I’ve long wanted to purchase a Garden of the Sun ring, but haven’t had an excuse until I found one that will look perfect with my engagement for my wedding coming up next month.
