Do you know where your diamonds have come from? Has the money it took to purchase the diamonds in your wedding band or anniversary necklace been used to fund devestating civil wars in Africa?
What is a conflict diamond? Conflict diamonds are those sold in order to fund armed conflict and civil war. Wars that have cost an estimated 3.7 million lives. That’s why purchasing conflict-free diamonds is so important.
Brilliant Earth is among the few businesses that are helping make a change. They believe that luxury goods need not come at great human or environmental cost. They also support underdeveloped communities ravaged by the jewelry industry by donating a share of our profits.
