It was a search for love, purpose, happiness – and you ventured far and wide. You looked high and low. Until finally you gave up and crumpled with defeat. But something caught you, something saved you. It was your own embrace, the one that awaits with open arms. Always ready to break your fall.
This ring holds just one stone and it's a very special one. It has a modern pentagon cut. I could see it symbolize a house, a home, the foundation of your life together.
According to the accompanying diamond certificate:
What do we mean when we say that this was diamond ethically sourced? Rarely will you know where your diamond comes from, as they're traded in large batches and mixed in the process. For this stone, we personally went to South Kalimantan to visit the diamond mines on the rubber plantations of the locals and met with the cutters. We know that thus stone was mined and cut in Indonesian Borneo, where all diamonds are mined and cut on a small scale rather than by large corporations.
The diamond has been securely set in 18 karat gold. This gold was responsibly mined by indigenous Dayak women in Central Kalimantan, who receive a 20% premium for their gold in exchange for using low impact mining techniques that are free of mercury and cyanide.
We only get small batches of this gold, because traditional gold panning means they only get very small particles of gold, which combines into less than a gram a day. Your ring is a true labor of love.
We made this ethical engagement ring or wedding band for the couple who wants a guilt-free ring to symbolize their love.
Customer service was friendly and responsive, have yet to present the ring to its recipient but I am sure she will love it!
I wanted something unique, stunning, and ethical. I wasn’t interested in a traditional diamond engagement ring, because that doesn’t represent me or my relationship. I love that I can be included in the Gardens of the Sun sourcing / processing / creating via Instagram. It’s important to me to know that everyone in the chain is taken care of. I was also able to get unique gemstone options. I love the purple sapphires — the energy of sapphire is amazing and I love purple. We requested moonstones on the sides — the blue flash is perfect! The ring came and it’s even more beautiful in person! Thank you thank you, we absolutely love it
This whole experience has been perfect! It was great to be able to have so much control designing this engagement ring, the people from GOTS couldnt have been more helpful. And the ring they made is stunning. Its so beautiful it doesnt even look like someone made it, its more like something found in nature ❤
My intention journals are simple, beautiful, and inspiring. They are just what I was looking for. I will keep one for myself and the other will be a birthday gift for a girlfriend. Thank you, Gardens of the Sun for putting such love into all that you create.
