Go down the rabbit hole of raw diamonds, colored gemstones, and stunning rings from Gardens of the Sun

Our jewelry partner, Gardens of the Sun, is my FAVORITE kind of shopping experience in which to lose myself. There are so many kinds of rings, so many gorgeous gemstones, natural diamonds, raw gems, and ethical metals, all forged by hand, often one-of-a-kind, and always intentional in their commitment to the Earth and giving back. I went down a serious rabbit hole and never wanted to come back.

Remember when pear-shaped engagement rings were controversial? They're not anymore…

Remember WAY back in 2001 when Carrie Bradshaw wigged TF out when Aidan planned to propose with a pear-shaped diamond on Sex and the City? The even weirder part was that she balked at yellow gold, which of course is back with a vengeance now. It seems like a very long time ago.

I wanted to see what was going on in the world of the pear and how weird and gorgeous and HUGE they could get. So I went a-hunting. I'm totally going to cheat by including some non-diamonds in here, too. Fight me. Let's shop!
