Brilliant Earth, found online at BrilliantEarth.com, is an online retailer which says they go beyond diamonds classified as "conflict free" to specialize in "ethical origin" diamonds, engagement rings, and fine jewelry.
The Kimberley Process Certification was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2003 to address the issue of conflict diamonds, which they define as diamonds that finance rebel movements against recognized governments.
Brilliant Earth says that they believe this is definition is far too narrow and does not address all the concerns that conscientious diamond buyers have. Their "ethical origin" jewelry goes much farther than that basic definition.
In addition to the definition used by the Kimberley Process, this company also says that they qualify all diamonds that are "tainted by violence, human rights abuses, poverty, and environmental degradation" as conflict diamonds.
The diamonds that you purchase from Brilliant Earth not only do not finance civil wars, but also will be traceable to their origin, use environmentally responsible mining, fair labor practices, and do not come from areas that have issues with human rights abuses.
Because they are an online retailer, they do offer free shipping on all of their products, including free return shipping if your item needs to be resized - which is complimentary - or otherwise returned for any reason.
They do offer a 30 day money back guarantee if you receive your item and have complaints or realize that it simply is not for you. It is up to you whether you want to exchange your piece or just want to request a refund.
They also offer two beneficial Life Guarantees. First, that if there is ever an issue with your piece that is due to a manufacturing defect, they will repair or replace your piece at no cost to you.
Their other Lifetime Guarantee regards diamond upgrades. Any loose diamond purchased from Brilliant Earth, excluding lab created diamonds, can be exchanged for credit equivalent to the original purchase price for a new diamond that is at least 50% greater in value.
