Moody Borneo Salt and Pepper Diamond Ring

In the darkest night she paints swaths of neon joy. Trees turn to purple under her fingertips and the skies blaze with splatters of lush greens and cheerful yellows. Pink puddles where she stands, and she smiles satisfied. She's punk rock, and she defies the dark.

Adventures aren't reserved for pirates and treasure seekers. Sometimes it's the journey in understanding. This dense salt and pepper diamond is bursting with wisdom and wisecracks. A contrast of personalities you'll enjoy deciphering.

These diamonds are of Indonesian origin. They have been mined by artisanal miners in the Banjar region in South Kalimantan, and cut by an independent local cutter.

The ring in US size 4.25 features a 0.62 ct champagne salt and pepper diamond. The diamond is a hazy light grey with hints of champagne and an entire galaxy inside. The diamond has a natural surface pit.

The ring in US size 7.25 holds a 0.72 ct moody and dark salt and pepper diamond. It has a slightly wonky native cut.

It's rare to know the origin of a diamond, so if you've been looking for an affordable ethical engagement ring on a budget, you'll want to take these two into consideration!

Cannot recommend enough (but at the same time want to keep it all to myself!)

Beautiful and meaningful, sparkly and colourful, sophisticated and fun. I feel very fancy when wearing this ring, which is a good thing during these grey months when neat outfits rarely leave my closet. But most of all, a true heirloom piece which I hope will stay in our family for generations. I bought the pink Ceylon spinel ring as a gift to myself, to celebrate the long longed-for birth of our firstborn daughter. As always, Tessa was extremely kind and helpful during the process of resizing the ring, and was even able to make sure the ring got engraved, even though I forgot to ask for the engraving when placing my order. I always marvel at the kindness and patience of GotS customer service, and unpacking the lovingly wrapped jewelry boxes and reading the handwritten notes truly sparks joy.

Beautiful and convenient

It looks awesome and true to the picture . So we've been getting their rings for all our milestones in our relationship and now this as our engagement ring and hopefully getting our wedding ring as well ! We both have a high connection to gardensofthesun as this started our mutual enjoyment of looking at rings .My partner likes to read their mailing list as we find it quirky and filled with bite sized reading materials .Usually most women would require to try out the rings, probably a possible suggestion would be to have an AR type of look for those rings that are reoccurring. However with their photos and videos , it is usually more than enough for us to make an informed decision !

Cornflower sapphire earrings

The product was lovely but the item look smaller than expected . Would think it is better if dimensions of the stones are included in future as well. Otherwise , beautiful piece

Completely obsessed

I absolutely adore my gardens of the sun ring. My fiance and I picked it out together. It's so beautiful and unique, and more than I could have dreamed... I can't stop looking at it. It arrived beautifully packaged and didn't take long to arrive.
Highly recommend gardens of the sun.
