Let us build your ethical dream ring! 

Now the design...

Select your fave emerald from our gemstone vault, to build your custom dream ring.

This dream is yours to design. Over to you now.  

Emerald settings:

  • Classic bezel setting with gold all the way around the stone
  • Open bezel setting, which goes around the girdle (edges) of the emerald, but exposes the culet (the bottom) of the stone

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.

  • Prongs
    • 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.

Number of prongs:

  • 4 prongs compass, positioned North, East, South and West
  • 4 prongs in the corners
  • 5 prongs (recommended only for stones over 5 mm)
  • 6 prongs (recommended only for stones over 5 mm)

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.

Band shape

  • Half round band, flat on the inside and rounded on the outside, for a comfortable fit. Around 1.8 mm wide. 
  • 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 1.3 mm wide. 

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)

Additional stones on the side with bezel or 3-prong setting

  • Salt and pepper diamonds around 2.5 mm
  • Purplish blue Yogo sapphires from Montana, around 2 mm

The price will be automatically adjusted depending on the stones and design you choose. 

Engraving is on us!

We offer complimentary hand engraving up to 24 characters on the inside of your gold  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.

Beautiful

This necklace was a must have to for me. It’s my husband/love of my life/best friend birthstone. And my lucky stone! I’m a very indecisive person when I log on to this site. But while browsing, I saw this necklace and fell in love. It’s absolutely beautiful. I love the clever way the chain is designed on the pendant. And the citrine is just lovely.
I’m so happy with my purchase and with this company. If I could give 20 stars I would.

Gorgeous!

I have a few pieces from GotS and every single one is my favorite. However, thiq ring might be my most favorite. It was a custom order, the customer service team was awesome with communication and helping me get the ring exactly as I wanted it. The ring was completed a couple weeks ahead of what I was expecting, and shipping took half the time originally quoted. Overall I am overjoyed with GotS and my jewelry.
