You said your prayers every single night, then you shut your eyes and dreamed your prayer to life. Everyday it was like this. Rinse and repeat. One day your prayer lay down beside you, in your arms, in the nook of your body. The prayer you lived on, it became your life. No longer in your dreams.
Design your antique cut diamond engagement ring or self love ring.
Antique cut diamonds are those using cutting techniques from before the 1930s. Think cut by hand rather than machines. Larger, more asymmetrical facets than the brilliant cut diamond, so the diamonds glow like a candle more than a fire.
The old mine cut dates back to the 1700s. An old mine cut diamond typically has a large culet, deep pavilion, small table, and a high crown. In terms of shape, the modern cushion cut comes closest to it.
The old European cut (OEC) resembles the modern brilliant cut diamond with its round shape. It differs from the brilliant cut diamond with it’s open culet, deep pavilion, small table and tall crown.
Whether an old mine cut diamond or old Euro cut diamond, choose an antique cut diamond that speaks to you and let's get started!
We’re making this for you, from scratch
Your custom antique cut diamond ring will be made to order with the antique cut diamond of your choice in around 8 to 13 weeks. You'll receive a photo before we ship it out. The price is for one finished ring in 18 karat eco gold.
Since your antique cut diamond ring will be made especially for you, we don’t accept returns on custom orders. You can read our return policy here.
Your custom ring design
You can choose from 18 karat yellow gold, rose gold or white gold. We use 18 karat ethical gold, which is mined and processed with traditional, mercury free, low impact practices by indigenous Dayak women in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, who receive fair pay. Our 18 karat white gold is alloyed with palladium. This white gold has a warm gray color. If you prefer that white metal look, we recommend adding rhodium plating for $50.
You can choose between a bezel setting, which has the gold all the way around the stone and a prong setting, where small claws hold the stone. Not sure which setting is right for you? Compare bezel vs prong setting here.
Diamonds in band
Want to add some extra sparkle? Pave diamonds in the ring band can really elevate the look of your ring. Choose between salt and pepper diamonds (the rebellious budget option) or white diamonds (G-H color, SI clarity).
Engraving is on us
We offer complimentary engraving on the inside of your ring to personalize it even more. Our team will reach out to you after your purchase for details.
Conflict free diamonds
The diamonds used in this jewelry have been purchased from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict and in compliance with United Nations resolutions. Based on personal knowledge and/or written guarantees provided by the supplier of these diamonds they are conflict free and mined in accordance with the Kimberley Process.
Gardens of the Sun goes beyond conflict free. Since our sourcing policy came into effect in November 2018 we only purchase diamonds from known origins. We avoid sourcing diamonds from Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Russia (last purchased in 2019), Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe.

I dreamed of owning a hexagon diamond ring by Gardens of the Sun, years before my proposal. When it became my time to design my custom set, the team could not have been more helpful in creating a unique piece of wearable art. Maharani suggested a silver wedding band with blue sapphires to compliment my hexagon salt & pepper diamond ring set in gold - and while I had not originally envisioned my gold ring with a silver band, I was truly blown away by the end result! The rings just fit together so perfectly, and compliment each other in the most gorgeous way. I get compliments daily on how beautiful my ring set is! I've never seen another set quite like mine, and I love it even more knowing that it was designed specifically for me. Thank you to the Gardens of the Sun team for creating such a magical, dreamy set of jewelry that I will cherish for a lifetime!!
Two rings, a story, and a lot of heart.
Like every good love story, we wanted our wedding and engagement rings to be unique and true to the love that inspired them. That's a lot to ask of jewelry, and I truly believe that Gardens of the Sun is the only company that could live up to that lofty vision. Friends and family are sick to death of us talking about our rings, but every time I look at my finger I smile, and what kind of value can you place on that? The entire experience was a delight. Thank you GOTS team. We love your impeccable work!

20 times and counting!
I have been thrilled again! I have bought no less than 20 times from GOTS, and seriously never been disappointed. I've ordered several custom rings and they have been amazing at bringing my dreams to life.
Now we can't believe in that many orders (probably 50 items!) That everything has been perfect? Once, and only once, did I describ my custom ring in an unclear way. For that, I am so thankful that GOTS send a preview photo for your approval before shipping! I saw the photo and realized I explained my concept in a confusing way. After I clarified my dreams (with a drawing) they actually took the ring apart and reset it in the way I had really hoped! Thank you a million times over! For caring about my desires, your quality, your staff, and the planet. I will purchase another 50x without a hesitation!
