The funny thing about a tribal dance, a truly tribal one – where you all whirl around a fire, chanting a dervish lullabye and breathless in unison, stepping to the sound of the crowd – is that if you miss a beat, you never lose your place, and the collective rhythm just makes space for the new tempo you've created.
Shades of sapphires from Indonesia are wrapped up in a recycled sterling silver cocoon, dangling from a hook and a dainty chain.
Rough organic shapes from different sapphires stones intentionally mismatched to make irresistible pairs. Their colors streaked with patterns of silk, banded crystal formations and star rays.
Like the reflection of a cloud-filled sky dancing upon the ocean’s surface on a beautiful summer day. A demonstration that you don't have to be 100% the same to be an awesome match. Nothing too loud, but enough to make a subtle statement.
Whether rough green sapphires, raw blue sapphires, raw pink sapphires, raw purple sapphires or shades of peach. Each of these sapphires are raw, unheated and not treated or polished in any way. Just cleaned with some water after they were dug up from the soil.
Select your favorite pair of mismatched sapphire earrings!
Each pair is made by hand and one of a kind due to the raw nature of the gemstones.

I picked up my ring from DHL today and was blown away by the care and detail just with the packaging! That ring box is gorgeous! The ring itself is everything I wanted from the dainty cuts of the gems, the shades of purple (my favorite color), to the sizing. It fits perfectly on my middle finger on my left hand. I have been following Gardens of the Sun for years on Instagram, but I wasn’t able to justify such a treat before. Now I can have an elegant ring as a gift to myself for my birthday.

Such a unique and overall nice quality piece. I have been fond of this jeweler for years and all of my pieces from here get so many compliments. The price is so fair for the quality and appearance of the jewelry and it feels good to know I’m putting my money into a company that supports causes that are important to me. Never stop doing what you’re doing!!
My Sister and I love 'em!
We've been wanting to have matching rings that represent our sisterhood. The moment I laid my eyes upon the rings, I knew that the ring is definitely that. The color arrangement is very vibrant and it looks so different from any other ordinary ring.
(Plus the delivery is super quick! Shoutout to the girls for helping me.)
