Canadian Diamonds Assessment
Brilliant Earth is strongly dedicated to offering an environmentally and socially responsible alternative to current industry practices. Our analysis of Canadian diamonds from the Diavik and Ekati mines reveals a strong environmental and social commitment as evidenced by independent environmental monitoring, wildlife protection, water management, and local community involvement and development. All of these activities have additionally been formalized and legally integrated to ensure that the commitment will last throughout the lifetime of the mines, even after they are no longer functioning.
Brilliant Earth is committed to ending the trade in blood diamonds, or unethically sourced diamonds, by offering our customers a guarantee that every step of the production of our merchandise has been performed under humane and environmentally responsible conditions. We do however, believe that there will always be room for improvement of these operations and we are continually working with our suppliers to address opportunities for improvement as they arise. While we continue to evaluate new diamond mining operations and are actively working to promote fair trade diamond mining in developing areas of the world, we believe that the Diavik and Ekati mines are two of the most socially and environmentally responsible diamond mines in the world.
