I have been dreaming of these rings for several years. I was finally able to make my dreams come true. I love these rings, and the meaning they have for me.

I ordered this as my wedding band and its absolutely beautiful! I had to get my size made and the team was so nice and quick to respond, when I mentioned it was a wedding band they let me know about potential rubbing with a lower set engagement ring (not an issue for me) but it was great they communicated that. Its so beautiful and feels so me, I couldn't love it anymore!

Truly a gift of love
Everything about choosing Gardens of the Sun was perfect for making a special gift for my daughter. I wanted to get the same ring with different birthstones for me, my daughter and my mom. I chose the hidden gem collection and am so impressed with every detail, from the gorgeous rings and individual wooden boxes, to the beautiful packaging wrapped with love. AND there's the added bonus of knowing I'm helping people and the earth!! Thank you ❤️
