what is the best stone for an engagement ring

the type of gemstone you'd like in your ethically sourced engagement ring is perhaps the first big decision you'll make in the process. though everyone has their own preference, we define “best” as the most durable, sustainable, and beautiful.

Though we work in a variety of stones, we specialize in montana sapphire engagement rings, which are beloved for their soulful array of colours and shades, and we also use antique or recycled diamonds. we recommend these stones because they score among the highest on the mohs hardness scale. They are best suited to daily wear and will last generations as future heirlooms, they are ethically and sustainably sourced, and they have uniquely beautiful properties.

How do I choose the right ring?

Much like finding your beloved, choosing the right ring is mostly based on feeling and instinct— when you find it, you'll know.

When you book an appointment with one of our experts, you'll get one-on-one guidance, advice, and personalized recommendations based on your partner's tastes and preferences— our goal is to make the selection process easy, memorable, and fun.

some good starting points to consider:

  • What colours does she love?
  • Is her style more classic, contemporary, or unique?
  • When it comes to her lifestyle, is she very active, adventurous, or outdoorsy?
  • What kind of jewelry does she already wear and love?

how do i determine the right ring size for my partner?

there are a few different methods you can use to get a good estimate if you're unsure of your partner's ring size:

  • Let us know that you're bringing her in to determine her ring size, and we'll help you
  • ask a close friend or family member if they know your partner's ring size
  • borrow a ring that your partner already wears and bring it to a jeweller to be measured
  • use a printable ring size chart to measure your partner's finger yourself, or you can secretly measure one of their rings while they're not looking

some things to keep in mind:

  • if you don't get the perfect size on the first try, we can resize most rings. please note: resizing can take between 2-3 weeks depending on the ring's style and the size change.

    in some cases, the ring may need to be rebuilt to accommodate a size change. we can walk you through this process in or after your appointment.

is your gold recycled, and are your sapphires and diamonds conflict-free?

Yes! Our sustainable engagement rings are handcrafted in recycled 14k yellow gold, and all of our sapphires are ethically and sustainably sourced from montana. our diamonds are always ethically sourced in compliance with the kimberley process.

what is your return policy if she says no or if she doesn't like the ring?

we treat each of our rings as a sculpture: a wearable piece of art that will someday become an heirloom. due to the craftsmanship and artistry that goes into each piece, our engagement rings and wedding bands are final sale.

tips from our experts: if you want to be 100% certain that your partner will like the ring, many of our guests bring their partner for a free ring consultation so that they can explore all of our options together— it makes for a fun date and gives you clarity on their preferences, too!

if you're hoping to surprise them, you can have them pick out a shortlist of their favourite rings in the appointment for you to choose from— a failsafe surprise!

i'm on a deadline — can i place a rush order?

yes— in many cases, we can accommodate a rush order. typically our special orders and resizing take 4-6 weeks. if you need to pick up your rings in less than six weeks, it is considered a rush order. rush fees start at a minimum of $100, and your fee will be determined and communicated by our experts.

typical rush orders take 3-4 weeks; shorter turnarounds can be discussed on a case-by-case basis. please make sure that you let us know your preferred pick-up date for the ring instead of the date of the wedding. this way, we can ensure that you have your rings well in advance, leaving you free to focus on preparing for your big day.

How much should I spend on a ring?

We've created our own way of doing things, and here, there are no rules!

Ultimately, it doesn't matter what anyone says you “should” spend. We offer gorgeous pieces in a wide price range, and we love them all equally.

Find the ring that makes you excited to get down on one knee— the one that gives you the feeling”, that you can't wait to see your love wear for the rest of your lives. The perfect ring is one that gives you this feeling and is affordable to you.
