Which mother in your life deserves a bit of luxury this year? Whether it’s your mom, the mother of your child, or your favorite mama figure, she’s certain to love a pair of earrings, a pendant, or a stackable ring from our collection of ethically sourced, eco-friendly fine jewelry. And this year, your gift will have extra meaning.
With each purchase from May 4th through Mother’s Day, May 10th, we will provide one mother in Africa with the maternity care she needs to give birth safely, through a $25 donation to the non-profit Maternity Worldwide.
About the issue:
Mothers in developing countries too often don’t receive prenatal medical care, and give birth without access to a hospital, or even a clean blanket. The consequences can be tragic for mother or baby. But you can change that for an expectant mother this year. With your purchase of Brilliant Earth jewelry this Mother’s Day you’ll give a child a healthy start and allow a woman to experience the safe childbirth that every mother deserves.
Around the world, more than 800 women die in pregnancy and childbirth each day, one every two minutes.
99% of these deaths occur in developing countries, more than half of them in sub-Saharan Africa.
In Malawi a woman’s lifetime risk of dying in pregnancy or childbirth is 1 in 36, compared to 1 in 3800 in developed countries.

The organization’s vision is to create “a world in which all women and their babies can access safe and appropriate childbirth regardless of where they live.”
