Brilliant Earth Diamonds are the Planet's Best Friend

As a leader in supplying conflict free diamond jewelry, Brilliant Earth Diamonds is a company also committed to spreading the word regarding socially conscious concerns of the world. With fascinating designs and master craftsmanship, wedding and anniversary rings sparkle on eco-friendly gold or platinum bands with breathtaking Canadian diamonds and fair trade sapphires. Donating 5% of profits to communities plagued by the diamond industry, the company also educates consumers by using the beauty and meanings behind their Brilliant Earth Reflections Collection, thus giving a voice to a handful of inspiring causes in the world. When purchasing an exquisite piece from this collection, you'll support the greater good…and do so in style. Silver Brilliant Earth Diggers Pendant If you've seen the movie, Blood Diamond (with the very own eco-conscious, Leonardo DiCaprio), then you're already familiar with the plight of diamond diggers residing in diamond-rich regions in Africa. Death, famine, child abuse and brutal violence are just some of the hardships that fall upon the shoulders of unwilling participants in a vicious cycle of power and greed. The Digger’s Pendant serves as a reminder of the struggle by encouraging the purchase of fine jewelry through safe and fair trade practices. Black oxidized silver is used to highlight the teardrop imprint of the palm belonging to a diamond digger – thus the name, Digger’s Pendant. A small conflict free diamond completes the design. Sea of Cortez Pearl Pendant This cultured organic pearl pendant with milgrained diamond accent is absolutely enchanting as it hangs from an 18K white gold cable twist chain. Originating from the Sea of Cortez (the Gulf of Mexico), the pearls are a product of a pearl farm established by a group of marine biologists focused on preservation and environmental safety. Chocó Fair Trade Pendant For an eco-conscious 18K yellow gold pendent, the Chocó Fair Trade Pendant offers two decorative sides hailing from what is known as the first true sources of fair-trade gold from Oro Verde. Upholding environmentally responsible harvesting practices, cooperatives in the Chocó region in Colombia, South America produce limited quantities of this exclusive pendant – a treasured find in a world where fair trade gold is limited. With a hand-hammered finish and eye-catching, pre-Colombian petroglyph pattern, the Chocó Fair Trade Pendant allows you to easily make a fashion statement for a good cause. Grape Garnet Dangles To dress the ears in elegant classic style, consider the Silver Grape Garnet Dangles featured in the Brilliant Earth Reflections Collection. Comprised of recycled sterling silver with small Canadian diamond accents, complete your look with the more contemporary Grape Garnet pendant. Image Credits: Brilliant Earth
