Earth Day 2017: Eco-Friendly Jewelry



Happy Earth Day! For 47 years, Earth Day has inspired individuals to renew their commitment to environmental protection. It also gives us at Brilliant Earth a chance to discuss one of our favorite topics: Eco-friendly jewelry.

At Brilliant Earth we are committed to environmentally friendly practices. Brilliant Earth is the first jeweler to earn independent third-party certification of the origin of our diamonds and the recycled content of our precious metals with SCS Global Services, a leader in third-party environmental and sustainability standards development.

We go above and beyond the current industry standards to guarantee that our diamonds originate from pure, ethical sources. Our ethically sourced natural diamonds originate from mines that adhere to strict labor, trade, and environmental standards. We’re also committed to handcrafting our fine jewelry from recycled precious metalsDirty gold mining has a history of civil war, labor abuses, and environmental devastation. Choosing recycled precious metals helps diminish the negative impacts of dirty gold.

By choosing to purchase products made from ethically sourced materials, consumers can reduce the demand for dirty gold mining and diamond mining that leads to environmental degradation.

Here are our favorite nature-inspired jewelry gifts to celebrate Mother Earth.
