Colored Gemstone Origins

Our mission is to cultivate a more ethical, transparent, and sustainable jewelry industry. We hold true to our values of awareness and transparency by carefully tracking our origins.



Brilliant Earth's sapphires are sourced in accordance with fair trade and environmentally responsible principles. These sapphires are sourced directly from our partner mines in Sri Lanka, Australia, and Malawi. We guarantee that all of our stunning sapphires have been handled according to strict labor, trade, and environmental protocols. Learn more


Our lustrous pearls are sourced from small scale farms that are dedicated to harvesting pearls and preserving the unique species that create them. These pearl farms provide fair wages, practice natural techniques, and respect the local ecosystems. Each natural, untreated pearl is carefully tracked and handled according to strict labor and environmental protocols. Learn more


We offer emeralds of deep, stunning color and ethical origins. A portion of our emeralds come from the Muzo Mine region in Colombia where miners are employed under fair labor standards. The other portion of emeralds come from the Kagem mine in central Zambia where the mine’s owners have funded social investment projects such as upgrading a local clinic to a hospital and creating a new secondary school.

Our peridots and garnets are ethically sourced from protected reservations in the Southwestern United States. Our amethysts are traceable to Uruguay, while our fire citrines come from Brazil. Our grape garnets come from the east coast of India, by the Bay of Bengal. All of our semi-precious gemstones are mined, cut, and polished in accordance with responsible labor, trade, and environmental practices. Learn more
