Our Beginnings

Brilliant Earth was founded when Beth Gerstein, who was struggling to find an engagement ring representing her values, partnered with Eric Grossberg, who was impassioned with the idea that responsibly sourced jewelry could be a tool for social change. This partnership has grown into a team of dedicated jewelry designers, sales associates, gemologists, and more, working to provide exceptional jewelry that our customers can feel good about wearing.
