Once upon a time, you believed in magic. You spoke of it with wonder. Now, things are just magical – an adjective to a fictional noun. And then you let the word dance on your tongue, plucking at your tastebuds, and you realized it was there all along. In your belly, in your gut. Where magic lives.

We’re making this for you, from scratch
Your custom kite diamond ring will be made to order with the kite diamond of your choice in around 8 to 12 weeks. You'll receive a photo before we ship it out. The price is for one finished ring in recycled sterling silver. You can upgrade to our signature ethical gold and add additional rings and diamonds as you please.
Since your rose cut kite 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 design
You can choose from recycled sterling silver, 18 karat yellow gold, 18 karat rose gold or 18 karat 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.
Ring set or ring stack
Would you love to have a kite diamond ring set or kite diamond ring stack? Add a V shaped nesting band or open diamond ring, or both. Create a kite diamond engagement ring and add the matching wedding band right away.
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.

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.

Kite diamonds for you to choose from
KD34 - 0.66 ct brown kite diamond Opaque and wonky chocolate brown diamond. Because it's rather a high profile stone for a rose cut, a bezel setting is best used here.

KD38 - 0.79 ct - salt and pepper kite diamond Asymmetric salt and pepper kite diamond, heavily included with a fun Dalmatian pattern. ond with a fun dalmatian pattern and so much depth in this stone. Measures 6.6 x 5.9 x 3.4 mm.

KD42 - 1.02 ct - salt, pepper and coffee diamond This salt and pepper diamond has orange inclusions, which make this diamond seem like a hot cup of chocolate at first glance.

Both rings I ordered were what I expected but I really appreciated the handwritten tags and informational inserts. The box was also lovely and I love that it's made of recycled banana leaves!

Best Case Scenario
This company is absolutely amazing. I decided last minute that I wanted a wedding band made in addition to my custom engagement ring. I sent the ring back a few months later, and it got lost in the mail. Their customer service was AMAZING. They provided updates as soon as they got them, they reached out to everyone to find my ring, and let me know when it arrived safely. They completely suppressed my anxiety around the whole situation. They ask questions when crafting instead of making assumptions, and even sent progress pictures. I could not be more thrilled with Gardens of the Sun and will definitely be telling everyone I know about them! In addition to all this, I got to support a women run company with the same environmental views I have. It is so cool to have a story behind my beautiful, one of a kind, wedding ring and I could not be happier with the end result! They even sent a little gift at the end of the whole journey! 10/10 recommend.

Custom Diamond Slice Engagement Ring
I ordered a custom sliced diamond ring and another ring for my engagement ring and wedding band. There was great communication throughout the process of my rings’ creation and when it arrived it was beautifully packaged and you could tell there was love and care put into this order. I would definitely recommend purchasing a piece of jewelry from Gardens if The Sun, and plan to purchase more myself! I love that with each purchase trees are planted and that ethically sourced materials are used.

Excellent customer service! Great products!
These awesome ladies worked with me from the beginning and even worked with me when I made an oops and had to change things around. They were very accommodating and flexible to my needs and I couldn’t be happier with the end result!! They were very quick to respond to my (annoying, I’m sure) emails despite the time difference (USA). And shipping didn’t take as long as I’d expected either! I was finally gifted my engagement ring so I’ve been waiting to leave a review until it was official. You ladies are amazing!
