    Price is for one finished salt and pepper diamond engagement ring in 18 karat gold. The rings in the photos have already sold. 

    Your ring will be made to order with the diamond of your choice in around 6 to 8 weeks. The diamond can be positioned vertically (North to South) or horizontally (East to West), except for the round diamond of course.  

    We can use a bezel setting (with the gold all the way around the diamond) or five prongs. We don't recommend prongs for white gold, as the rhodium plating will wear off the prongs. You can choose a round (tends to spin more, so not recommended if you have larger knuckles) or half-round band. 

    We can add one, three or five diamonds in the band on one side or each side.

Lovely journals and customer service

These little intention journals are wonderful: very well made and every bit charming. I love them!
Communication was great throughout the shipping/delivery process and the journals were packaged with so much love one could feel it.
Thank you, Meri and Gardens of the Sun Team, for doing what you are doing and for providing a great customer experience all around.

It's all in the details

These journals are beautiful and hold so much detail. The images are vibrant and intentions in each journal are so nice. I love them

Beautiful, one of a kind piece

I purchased this ring for myself as a replacement wedding ring. It's simplicity yet beauty spoke to me. It wad definitely hard to choose which stone to go with, but the person I spoke with on email was very helpful and assisted with all of my questions. I would advise, that if you're trying to figure out which color gem to go with, the darker gems look darker on the skin. Just FYI. Great customer service. Beautiful work. A great company to support!
