    Move over clarity, perfection and conformity. You want your ring to be unmatched, exclusive and to stand out. You want your ring to be a story of its own and the diamond to be deep, sparkling yet earthy. You want to feel lost in maze-like flaws and crystal paths.

    Well, there's no shortage of possibilities. This is your chance to design your own natural rustic diamond engagement ring or everyday ring. Choose a diamond that speaks to you and let's get started on a ring that's just so you

    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 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.

      Please note that your ring will be made to order in 6 to 8 weeks. Need it sooner? Contact us about rush options.

      Perfect Engagement Ring

      Not only is the ring absolutely gorgeous (and a really unique engagement ring), but the people who worked with me to get my ring to me as quickly as possible were incredible. The unboxing was also wonderful—they sent me a “photo story book” with images of my ring while it was being made.

      Quality product and service

      They were very considerate and easy to communicate with. The ring looked just like I had hoped it would.
