Responsible Sourcing

Few of the world's diamonds meet Brilliant Earth's standards for ethical sourcing and exceptional quality.

Recycled Precious Metals

As part of our commitment to environmental responsibility and ethical practices, our fine jewelry is crafted from primarily recycled precious metals. Because our recycled metals are refined back into their pure elements, they are of the same high quality as newly mined metals.

Dirty gold mining has a history of civil war, labor abuses, and environmental devastation. Our objective is to diminish the negative impacts of dirty gold by reducing the demand for newly mined metals.

Where We Source From

Eco-Friendly Packaging

Our responsibly sourced wood ring boxes are designed to be as iconic as the jewelry they hold. Our non-toxic, biodegradable jewelry cleaner is complimentary for ring orders over $1,000 with gemstones. Our silver jewelry arrives in a fabric pouch inside a paper gift box.

To keep your surprise safe, your purchase arrives in discreet and unmarked packaging. This shipping packaging also comes from responsibly managed sources. As part of our continued commitment to reducing our environmental footprint, we redesigned our packaging in 2018. We estimate that our new packaging will result in a 35% decrease in paper packaging used in the first 12 months.

Colored Gemstones

Colored gemstones are a vibrant and distinctive choice, and have been sought after for centuries. We strive to offer gemstones sourced in alignment with safe working conditions and environmentally responsible principles. Many obstacles still exist in obtaining information about gemstone mining conditions around the world which makes it challenging to trace some gemstone origins and track the conditions under which they were mined.

By continually working with our colored gemstone suppliers to improve standards and traceability, we strive to promote higher standards for gemstone sourcing to transform dangerous mining conditions and encourage responsible practices. For instance many of our sapphires originate from Sri Lanka, where miners employ techniques that minimize impact to the environment and operate in small cooperatives that share the costs, labor, and profits from the sale of gemstones.
