In the world of astronomy, a nova is a star that suddenly releases a huge burst of energy, temporarily becoming extraordinarily bright.
Our Ara-Nova band is professionally solidly cast from 925 sterling silver, 14k rose, white or yellow gold, and features 4 sparkling genuine conflict-free diamonds along the band, surrounding your own personal inclusions marquise stone.

Ethics & sustainability
We are committed to ethical sourcing and environmental sustainability, including the use of only ethically sourced genuine gemstones, and the use of recycled precious metals.
When you purchase this design from us, you can be assured the metals and gemstones in your jewellery have been made under a certified member of the RJC, and certified recycled precious metals under CSC certification.
Every mined diamond we use complies with the Kimberly Process.
Your natural materials which we work with, such as cremation ashes, hair, and milk, all come in an array of tones and colours. Your inclusion materials are as unique as you are, and vary from person to person. What you see on our website is an example of the design, however, the main stone will always vary in textures and colours.
We don't add anything to change the colour or consistency to your provided materials unless you are choosing effects such as flecks & shimmers.
Flecks and shimmers dance around and settle in their own way, a way we can not predict or change. We don’t see these as flaws or imperfections. We see them as unique and amazing just like the inclusions you send us.
Please note we have a no-refunds policy and as such we encourage you to read our FAQ page and ask any questions PRIOR to ordering: HERE
