Meet

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:

  • Fancy cut
  • Weighs 0.54 ct 
  • Measures 6.47 x 4.45 x 2.49 mm
  • Cut grade is good with good symmetry and polish
  • Clarity is SI2 with noticeable inclusions: natural, feather and crystal
  • Color grade is near colorless (I) with strong blue fluorescence (LW)

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 this 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.

Beautiful ring. Outstanding experience.

I love my custom opal ring! I have been wanting to purchase something opal from Gardens in the Sun for several years now but was never able to. For my 30th birthday, my partner helped me realize that an opal ring from Gardens in the Sun would be the perfect gift to mark the occasion! It was an easy process to go through and when I had a concern about something I was seeing in the pictures, my concern was taken seriously right away. Once my ring was in the mail it made it to me faster than I thought it would! And when I opened the ring box I actually gasped! My ring is beautiful and I can't help but stare at it while the rainbow colours in the opal dance in the sun. It is the perfect thing to mark this new decade in my life. The packaging was also beautiful- I love the little paper rose inside! Thank you so much for all of the care that was put into getting this ring to me, from the silversmith, opal miners, customer service support and so on. I am very grateful.

Beyond beautiful

When my partner and I decided to get married, I didn’t even need to give it a second thought on where I wanted to get my ring from. Having previously purchased jewelry from Gardens of the Sun, I knew I could only expect a beyond beautiful, high quality piece. I love that I am able to support a truly wonderful company who is all about ethical sourcing and sustainability. It is amazing that I am able to know the origin details of the specific diamond I have chosen to incorporate into my ring - it truly makes it all the more special to me.
The Garden of the Sun team was amazing throughout the entire process of creating this custom salt and pepper brilliant-cut ring and were very responsive to any questions I had. Thank you all so much for creating the exact ring I had been envisioning!
