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.

A Beautiful Mystery

My mystery box was such a fun experience! Getting it around Christmas time was like a present for myself. And the coordinated aquamarine set was beautiful and such a unique design.

Since it was a mystery box, I couldn’t vet the stone in my ring, which had an inclusion. But their great customer service got back to me quickly confirmed it didn’t put the ring at risk of breaking. I can’t wait to wear this set!
