Even after tasting all her complex flavors, and seeing her technicolor dreams, and touching her jagged edges and feeling her soft center; she was still so simple, it was all so simple: there is love and there is she, and that's all that there is.
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:
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.
I’m in love with this little ring! It arrived EXACTLY as shown in the pictures, the band is the perfect in between tone to match gold or silver jewelry and the little raised stone is flawless. Very satisfied!
You guys, this necklace is everything. I’m so in love with it—how delicate it is, the fine craftsmanship is, the colors of the stones. This necklace is special, and it makes me feel that way, too. Bonus?? I’ve gotten so many compliments on it. Do yourself a favor and pull the trigger on that special piece. If you have an experience at all like mine, you won’t regret it!
I adore my new ring! It it so beautiful and I just can't stop looking at it. This is definitely not my first purchase, nor anywhere close to my last purchase from Gardens of the Sun. Thank you for yet another gorgeous piece, and thank you for being such a lovely company. As always, the presentation was impeccable. Yay!
