“Diamonds are a Girl’s Best friend,” is a well-known saying by Carol Channing in the original Broadway production of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, as well as by Marilyn Monroe in the movie version of the play. The saying is true,  and the best thing about Brilliant Earth Jewelry is that the diamonds used in their jewelry are conflict free.

Brilliant Earth Jewelry was founded in 2005 by Beth Gerstein and Eric Grossberg and offer ethical bridal, fine and antique jewelry. All the designs are hand drawn in San Francisco before being brought to life by jewelers who use eco-friendly and recycled precious metals. Brilliant Earth Jewelry has the strictest labor and environmental standards. This brand aims to make their customers feel good about the jewelry they are wearing without destroying a community to get the diamonds, gems and precious metals that it uses. Apart from that, the company also donates 5% of all profits to African communities that have been harmed by the diamond trade.

As of this moment Brilliant Earth Jewelry offers five different collections. Customers also have the option to customize their own rings. If you are not looking to buy rings, then they also have earrings and pendants (some of which are also customizable). For those that are on a budget, they also sell gifts for under $250, with beautiful pendants starting at $75 and up. The Wisteria Collection, The Windsor Collection, the Belle Époque Collection, The Sapphire Collection, and the Vintage Collection are the five collections now available; with plans to release other collections in the near future.

The Wisteria Collection was inspired by nature and features leaves and autumn branches to give it a very natural and earthy feel. The Windsor Collection is inspired by Hollywood’s Golden Age and exudes a lot of class and glamour through the bold designs and the lavish amounts of diamonds used in each piece. The Belle Époque Collection, which is French for Beautiful Era, is a collection that has feminine accents and combines Victorian Nouveau designs with old world craftsmanship. The Sapphire Collection features blue, yellow, and pink amongst many other effervescent hues of sapphire. The Vintage Collection has very distinct designs that vary from Victorian-era to modern jewelry pieces. This collection also features earrings and pendants.
