Custom Made, please allow 3-10 weeks for production

Gay 1 carat diamond engagement ring based around the "equality" concept. Equality between partners in marriage, equality in human rights....both are vital in love and humanity.

► Center Gem: One square cut center stone, approximately 1 carat in weight, 5.5mm across. Diamonds in this size are sold and certified individually, this pricing is for one in the E-G color range, SI2 clarity. Please contact me for more options; this was chosen as an excellent mid point of quality and price.

► Side Gems: Two exquisite quality baguette cut support diamonds, 0.46 cts each, 3mm x 1.5mm, VS clarity, GHI color. All diamonds I use are conflict-free.

All diamonds are ideal to very good cut. All values for stone size and weight are approximate.

Band: Two 3.3mm wide bands are joined together by diamond and metal supports. The overall width of the ring is 9.5mm. Choose from platinum, palladium, or gold. All of our metals are recycled, refined in the USA for ecological and social responsibility. If you would like a metal not listed, or would like preview images of a certain metal, just contact me :) I can use anything from platinum to exotic golds like rose and green gold, as well as 22k royal yellow gold.

I'm also including one awesome-looking mixed metal option, 14k white gold with 14k rose gold accents. Despite the reputation of rose gold as a feminine metal, it sort of rocks when used in small amounts with mostly white-metal men's rings. I think it looks very masculine and cool in that context.



Each ring is made to order in exactly your size using a combination of a sophisticated jeweler's CAD system, modern CAM milling technology and old-school hands-on goldsmithing. With this technology you get a completely custom ring in weeks rather than the months that are standard for custom jewelry. It takes an average 3-8 weeks from the time your order is finalized.


You can order your ring pre-configured with the options listed above, or tweak the design to your exact specs. All it takes is a quick email to get details and pricing on custom ring design options.

1. What Kind of Metal do You Want?

Any ring, any metal. Only the most popular options are listed to the right, but with a quick email to customize you can choose from:

  • Platinum
  • 14k gold in white, yellow, rose, or green
  • 18k gold in white, yellow, rose, or green
  • Palladium

2. Pick Your Diamond:

Don’t get stuck with anything less than perfect; choose the quality, size, and shape of your diamond from the world’s largest international diamond exchange, not the lackluster selection at a jewelry store. We’ll even send you pictures and certificates of diamonds you might like so you can make a thoughtful choice in your own home. We order on demand rather than holding diamonds in inventory, giving you instant access to unlimited choice.


3. Would You Prefer a Special Gem or Birthstone?

Tired of shopping and finding everything but the gem you actually want? You’re in luck, because you’ve found one of the top colored gemstone specialists on the net. In addition to an extensive gem inventory, we work with fair trade/direct trade gem sources worldwide. Give us a little time, and we’ll be able to get just about any gemstone you can imagine....even if we have to send a guy to the mine, have it dug up, and cut it to order. How’s that for awesome?

Got a gem without a home? Don’t let in languish, get your precious out of that dusty drawer and enjoy it every day. We’ll turn it into a custom ring you’ll love to wear.

4. What Texture Would You Like on the Metal?

If our signature mirror polish finish doesn't do it for you, pick from eight different surface textures. Hammered and satin are the most popular alternatives.

5. Engrave the Band With a Custom Message in Your Handwriting:

Get your special message engraved in one of 5 fonts, or use our handwritten engraving service to transfer your own handwriting to the inside of the ring. Make it stand out by filling the lettering with enamel - your choice of 5 colors.

6. Make the Design Perfect:

If nothing you see is quite right, and you want a ring that really sings to your heart, we can help. I’ve always had a gift for asking questions of my clients and using your answers to design the perfect piece. If you do see something you like, we can tweak any ring to suit your needs. Speaking of designs you might like....here's a whole catalog full.

7. Add Some Star Power:

Ever wonder where celebrities get those custom engraved diamonds, one-of-a-kind rare gems, and custom made engagement rings? Our unique service allows you to engrave a personal message on the girdle of any diamond purchase of roughly 1/3 carat or larger. Add a rare, fine gem like an award-winning blue sapphire, and set it in a ring made from scratch to join our elite clients in LA & NYC.


We use recycled, eco-friendly metals and certified, conflict-free diamonds for luxury with a clean conscience. All of our metals are recycled, refined in the USA for ecological and social responsibility. We offer Canadian, Australian, and Kimberley Process compliant diamonds. I buy direct from a DTC sightholder for a rock-solid conflict free chain of custody.

Caveats and Addendums*

Custom made items such as this ring cannot be returned. Please be sure of details like metal and stone choices, size, etc. before you order. Thanks for your understanding!

Ring images are photorealistic renders from my CAD system. Consider them a really amazing preview sketch! Diamonds tend to render accurately, but colored gemstones are often markedly different in appearance from the renders. Whenever possible I’ve included an example photo of the actual gem variety for a more realistic presentation. Unique designs even include a photograph of the exact gem that will be used in the ring.

* Yes, that is a Firefly reference.
