Meet

The modern shield cut diamond is a real eye-catcher. She's a very pale yellow, which means that she doesn't look yellow from a distance, but rather like a warm disco party with copious amounts of champagne. 

The ethically sourced diamond weighs just over half a carat. Think: the perfect size for everyday wear. 

According to the diamond certificate report:

  • Triangle modified brilliant cut
  • Weighs 0.54 ct and measures 5.63 x 5.22 x 2.72 mm
  • Cut grade is good with good polish and symmetry
  • Clarity grade is SI2 with noticeable inclusions, namely crystal, cleavage and natural 
  • Color grade is faint yellow (M) with medium blue fluorescence (LW)

So why is this 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 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. 

Would make a wonderful ethical engagement ring or wedding band for the couple who wants a guilt-free ring to symbolize their love. This is that ring.
