Meet

There's no shortage of possibilities. This is your chance to design your own natural pear diamond engagement ring or self love ring.

Now the design...

Choose a diamond that speaks to you and let's get started!

Diamond settings:

  • Classic bezel setting with gold all the way around the diamond
  • Open bezel setting, which goes around the girdle (edges) of the sapphire, but exposes the culet (the bottom) of the stone
  • Prongs
    • Prongs only; The prongs rise up from the base of the ring, without any additional support or security.
    • Wire basket prongs; The prongs rise up from the base of the ring, with a thin wire around halfway at the pavillion (underside) of the stone for extra support.
    • Basket prongs; The prongs rise up from a base or 'basket' into which the gemstone or diamond is set. This offers more security, but can look bulkier than prongs only, especially when the stone has a higher profile.

Our white gold is rhodium plated, and the rhodium plating tends to wear off over time. It wears off faster around the areas that get most wear, in this case, the prongs. So white gold prongs need more care and maintenance than a white gold bezel, or than yellow or rose gold prongs.

We can use four prongs or a five-prong setting for bigger diamonds, with four regular prongs (two on the bottom, two on the side) and one U shaped prong at the very top.

For stones over 3.5 mm deep, we recommend an open bezel setting rather than a regular bezel setting. This will avoid the bezel setting looking too "chunky" considering the stone has a high profile.

Your pear diamond can be set up with the belly and angle facing up (vertically or north-south) or sideways (horizontally or east-west). 

Band shape:

  • Half round band, flat on the inside and rounded on the outside, for a comfortable fit. Around 1.6 mm wide. Can be engraved. 
  • Round band, this band tends to spin more and is not recommend if your knuckles are wider than the part of your finger where the ring sits. Around 1.2 mm wide. No engraving possible. 

Additional small stones in the band:

  • Plain band, no additional diamonds
  • Small sparkling white Canadian diamonds (G-H color, SI clarity) - you choose how many
  • Small salt and pepper diamonds (you choose how many)

We offer 3 styles of embedding the diamond in the band: plain (no accents), dots between the diamonds, and lines between the diamonds, with tiny dots on the corners of each diamond. The embedded diamonds in the band will be set with the lines between the diamonds, unless requested otherwise.

Engraving is on us!

We offer complimentary hand engraving up to 24 characters on the inside of your gold diamond ring to personalize it even more. This is only possible for half round bands, as the round bands are too dainty, and can be selected in the dropdown menu.

Our signature ethical gold

We use 18 karat eco-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 white gold is rhodium plated.

Both labs employ GIA Graduate Gemologists.

Happiness

This customized piece was sooooo beautiful. Bought this as a gift to my mother. Definitely something that could be wore everyday. One of the gems fell out on the first day being worn but customer service was quick to respond to handle the situation! Cant wait to buy more jewelry from them!! And also create more customized pieces!

The Real Deal

I started working with GotS after one of my best friends introduced me to their work with jewelry, the planet and the most amazing humans around. After starting the process of creating my dream ring set… I feel like I have gained more best friends!
I am absolutely in love with the stunning set Meri, Tessa, Wulan and the rest of the team at GotS put together for me. I had an idea in my head of what I was asking for… but like a true fairytale they used their hearts and magic to send me a set I couldn’t have dreamed of.
I am truly in love with my rings and indefinitely indebted to the amazing heart of every thought and person who touched my dream wedding ring set.
Gardens of the Sun is a true group of people making real change in the world, with actions and words. ❤️
