Brilliant Earth ~conscientious luxury
My quest to discover all things pampering and green has led me to some fabulous discoveries. The most recent of which is Brilliant Earth, a San Francisco based company, dedicated to offering extraordinary pieces of fine jewelry that are created only of socially and ethically responsible practices.
Brilliant Earth stands out in the jewelry industry by insisting on only using conflict free diamonds, which are sourced primarily from Canadian eco-responsible mines.
Conflict free? I was under-educated on this subject myself. If you are, and I know you are, challenging yourself to go more green and live responsibly, ensuring that your fine jewelry purchases follow your life philosophies is essential.
Conflict diamonds have funded devastating civil wars in Africa, ending millions of lives. These conflict diamonds, also known as "blood diamonds", are associated with human rights abuses including violence and worker exploitation, as well as environmental damage.
Brilliant Earth is further committed to provided exquisite jewelry that is eco-friendly, utilizing resources that are obtained and refined using only environmentally sustainable and responsible practices.
Brilliant Earth is determined to promote sustainable practices by using environmentally responsible gold and platinum. Our precious metals come from secondary sources and are re-refined in order to ensure that they are identical quality to newly mined metals. We strive to reduce the need for additional "dirty" mining by using renewed metals
Taking business practices essential steps beyond...
