Be like the trees, the moon, the neon colored beetles in the dirt. Live knowingly. Trust that every moment, you change a little, grow a little, even if unnoticed. Until one day, looking back, the magnificent explosion that is your life takes your breath away.
The eye catcher of this ring is an oval diamond from South Kalimantan, Indonesia. The oval diamond weighs a third of a carat and has been cut by hand in Martapura, South Kalimantan. The diamond is mostly clear with some small inclusions, it could be called a very light salt and pepper diamond, although it's a lot less included than most. The cut is slightly irregular and has a lot of character. A beautiful stone if you're into antique diamonds.
According to the accompanying diamond certificate:
The ethical diamond has been securely set in 18 karat gold. This gold was responsibly mined by indigenous Dayak women in Central Kalimantan, who receive a 20% premium for their gold (as compared to the national gold price at the time) in exchange for using low impact techniques that are free of mercury and cyanide.
We only get small batches of this gold, because traditional gold panning means they only get very small particles of gold, which combines into less than a gram a day. Your ring is a true labor of love.
Would make a wonderful ethical engagement ring or wedding band for the couple who cares about responsible sourcing and where the materials came from. After all, a ring that's supposed to symbolize your love should leave you feeling empowered and guilt-free.
This has quickly become my favourite necklace. It's perfect for everyday wear, yet would easily be worn out in a dressier setting. I love looking down and seeing my family's birthstones and my daughter's initial.
This is truly a classic piece that will become a family heirloom.
I love my custom diamond ring and the free stacking ring that came with it. I couldn't be happier! Thank you for the rings, the fast shipping and wonderful service. You are amazing and the kindest jewelry company of all times. ♡
Really wish to thank Misha and the entire team for their excellent customer service, patiently walking through the options and even going through the trouble of obtaining pictures just to make sure everything turns out perfect. And it certainly did! Love the ring as well as the beautiful message GOTS is spreading!
I love the beautiful rings I ordered for myself and my fiancé! They're elegant, organic, unique, and understated—all the things I was looking for. The GOTS team was amazing to work with, even seamlessly accommodating a custom moonstone addition. I'm so grateful for their warm, friendly, and timely service! Opening the box and seeing all the thoughtful, handmade touches was such a moving reminder that this small team was with me every step of this process, and that these rings are truly special.
