At Brilliant Earth, we carefully and continually monitor our gemstone and precious metal sources to ensure that they remain up to our high standards of ethical and environmentally responsible practices. We recently conducted a comprehensive assessment of the two mines from which we obtain our Canadian-sourced diamonds. Both mines were assessed for responsible Wildlife + Water Management and Progressive Labor Practices and found to be strongly committed and performing very well in both areas. Both mines have relatively small footprints and are dedicated to employing local Aboriginal workers and to minimizing environmental impacts. In particular, they take care not to adversely affect the vulnerable caribou herds that roam the Northern Canadian region.
