Brilliant Earth goes above and beyond the current industry standards to guarantee that our diamonds originate from pure, ethical sources. We believe that high quality diamonds should not come at a great social and environmental cost.
Our ethically sourced diamonds originate from mines that adhere to strict labor, trade, and environmental standards. All of our center diamonds are traceable to their origins in Canada, Namibia, Russia, or Botswana.
Dirty gold mining has a history of civil war, labor abuses, and environmental devastation. As part of our commitment to environmental responsibility, we handcraft all of our fine jewelry from recycled precious metals. Our objective is to diminish the negative impacts of dirty gold by reducing the demand for newly mined metals.
Brilliant Earth promotes the development of a fair trade gold system. This system will guarantee fair wages, promote economic growth, and empower mining communities. To demonstrate our support, we are now offering a stunning Fairmined gold collection.
We offer our clients the option of having their jewellery made using recycled gold and platinum. This reduces demand for newly mined metals, diminishing the environmentally damaging effects of mining practices.
Once refined, recycled gold and platinum are of identical quality to (and therefore completely indistinguishable from) newly mined refined gold or platinum. For this reason, our refiner is independently audited and certified to guarantee that their metals really are 100% recycled.
