Brilliant Earth was co-founded by Beth Gerstein and Eric Grossberg, who met at Stanford University. When Beth was about to be engaged, she experienced firsthand, with her fiancé Alex, the challenge of finding a conflict free engagement ring that represented her values. Eric, through his research at Stanford, became impassioned with the idea that responsibly-sourced jewelry could be an effective tool for social change in developing countries. Together, Beth and Eric founded Brilliant Earth in 2005.
What began as a partnership between two entrepreneurs has grown into a community of people with a passion for fine jewelry and a commitment to change. The Brilliant Earth team is a group of dedicated individuals – jewelry designers, sales associates, gemologists, and more – all working to provide exceptional jewelry that our customers can feel good about wearing. Our customers, too, are part of our community. It is with our customers' help that we are cultivating a more humane jewelry industry, one stunning piece of jewelry at a time.
At Brilliant Earth, we are dedicated to socially and environmentally responsible sourcing. Our carefully selected suppliers adhere to strict labor and environmental standards and can demonstrate a complete chain of custody for their gemstones. To reduce the demand for additional dirty gold mining, we only use recycled gold and platinum. These precious metals come from secondary sources and are re-refined to ensure that they are identical in quality to newly mined metals.

I absolutely love my ring and am so amazed at how beautiful it is! We’re thankful for all your help, advice, and wonderful service. John proposed while on our recent trip to New Mexico after a sunset hike atop a gorgeous mesa. The only thing more stunning besides that view and my sweetheart was my gorgeous engagement ring. I'm proud to have a ring that symbolizes our values as much as our love for each other and am recommending BE to my friends and family.
