Now the design...

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

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

Morganite settings:

  • Classic bezel setting with gold all the way around the stone
  • Open bezel setting, which goes around the girdle (edges) of the morganite, 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.

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.

If you choose an irregular shaped morganite, we can send you sketches to see some prong placement options, and you can request to position the stone horizontal or vertical.

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.

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
  • Soft peachy pink spinels in high quality pentagon cut. With their unusual cuts this makes for a unique three stone ring!

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 ring. Outstanding experience.

I love my custom opal ring! I have been wanting to purchase something opal from Gardens in the Sun for several years now but was never able to. For my 30th birthday, my partner helped me realize that an opal ring from Gardens in the Sun would be the perfect gift to mark the occasion! It was an easy process to go through and when I had a concern about something I was seeing in the pictures, my concern was taken seriously right away. Once my ring was in the mail it made it to me faster than I thought it would! And when I opened the ring box I actually gasped! My ring is beautiful and I can't help but stare at it while the rainbow colours in the opal dance in the sun. It is the perfect thing to mark this new decade in my life. The packaging was also beautiful- I love the little paper rose inside! Thank you so much for all of the care that was put into getting this ring to me, from the silversmith, opal miners, customer service support and so on. I am very grateful.

Beyond beautiful

When my partner and I decided to get married, I didn’t even need to give it a second thought on where I wanted to get my ring from. Having previously purchased jewelry from Gardens of the Sun, I knew I could only expect a beyond beautiful, high quality piece. I love that I am able to support a truly wonderful company who is all about ethical sourcing and sustainability. It is amazing that I am able to know the origin details of the specific diamond I have chosen to incorporate into my ring - it truly makes it all the more special to me.
The Garden of the Sun team was amazing throughout the entire process of creating this custom salt and pepper brilliant-cut ring and were very responsive to any questions I had. Thank you all so much for creating the exact ring I had been envisioning!
