In 1970, Senator Gaylord Nelson established the first Earth Day, and the movement has been growing steadily ever since. On this day we all join together to celebrate how fortunate we are to live on this beautiful planet! This is a time to raise awareness and discuss the environmental challenges we all face, such as climate change and air and water pollution. Check out www.earthday.org for more information on how you can participate.
Earth Day is important to Brilliant Earth because part of our goal is to end environmentally harmful mining practices and restore land that has already been affected. We use only recycled gold in our jewelry to avoid the negative environmental impacts of dirty gold mining. We also partner with the environmental nonprofit One Sky and the Conservation Society of Sierra Leone (CSSL) to support redevelopment efforts in Kono, the diamond mining region in Sierra Leone.
We want to thank you for supporting the ethical jewelry movement! Through April 22nd, you will receive a beautiful Green on the Inside Pendant with your diamond engagement ring, sapphire engagement ring, or unique colored gemstone engagement ring purchase. This recycled sterling silver pendant features a vibrant and ethically sourced green sapphire charm.
