Have you ever found a ‘GREEN’ jewellery business? Well, I finally did and can’t wait to share it with you! I suppose with so many people and businesses going ‘GREEN’ these days, there would have to be some type of ‘GREEN’ jewellery, but they are certainly not easy to find.
The company I did find is: Brilliant Earth!
This company has been raising awareness of re-emerging concerns about conflict diamonds.
They have found that many diamond deposits found in Zimbabwe are now under government control. Terrible things have happened there including torture and murders even though the stones are being sold as ‘conflict-free’.
The diamonds from Brilliant Earth however, are sourced directly from mines with impeccable labor and environmental standards. Their oxidized silver Earth digger’s pendant represents the plight of diamond diggers in Africa and support of their cause. They even have an education campaign to help consumers understand the current diamond industry and what to expect from retailers.
Brilliant Earth offers helpful buying tips as well as gifts to match any style or price.
Brilliant Earth has found an alternative to mining like their silver peace pendant made from 100% recycled silver, as seen here: Recycled Silver.
They are also participating in the very first fair-trade gold program with gold petroglyph-inspired pendants that reflect their commitment to the well-being of communities that make a living from mining.
