“I start each day with meditation to clear my mind, and always utilize the Headspace app. This—coupled with fresh air and movement — helps me to daydream, take in my surroundings and think of new creative ideas. Working in the jewelry industry, creativity is at the core of our business, making this app a vital part of my day.”— Beth Gerstein, CEO and co-founder of Brilliant Earth.
"You don’t have to be a large organization to have an impact. If you’re authentic, persistent, and bring a unique perspective, even a small team can drive significant change and create strong customer and industry awareness." — Beth Gerstein, Co-CEO, Brilliant Earth
THE FOUNDING STORY
Brilliant Earth was co-founded by Beth Gerstein and Eric Grossberg, who met at Stanford University. When Beth was about to be engaged, she experienced firsthand, with her fiancé Alex, the challenge of finding a conflict free engagement ring that represented her values. Eric, through his research at Stanford, became impassioned with the idea that responsibly-sourced jewelry could be an effective tool for social change in developing countries. Together, Beth and Eric founded Brilliant Earth in 2005.
What began as a partnership between two entrepreneurs has grown into a community of people with a passion for fine jewelry and a commitment to change. The Brilliant Earth team is a group of dedicated individuals – jewelry designers, sales associates, gemologists, and more – all working to provide exceptional jewelry that our customers can feel good about wearing. Our customers, too, are part of our community. It is with our customers' help that we are cultivating a more humane jewelry industry, one stunning piece of jewelry at a time.
Our goal at Brilliant Earth is to make jewelry as beautiful as it can be. We are passionate about cultivating a more ethical, transparent, and sustainable jewelry industry.
Brilliant Earth provides jewelry of exceptional quality originating from pure sources and harvested using socially responsible practices.
Brilliant Earth provides education about the social and environmental issues affecting the jewelry industry and identifies ways to help.
Brilliant Earth supports underdeveloped communities ravaged by the jewelry industry by donating a share of our profits.
At Brilliant Earth, we are dedicated to socially and environmentally responsible sourcing. Our carefully selected suppliers follow strict labor and environmental standards and demonstrate a complete chain of custody for their gemstones. To reduce the demand for additional dirty gold mining, we use recycled gold and platinum. These precious metals come from secondary sources and are re-refined, meaning they are of the same high quality as newly mined metals.
From beautiful packaging to our exclusive jewelry designs, everything at Brilliant Earth is held to exceptional standards. Our made to order jewelry is handcrafted and carefully inspected by our jewelry experts. At Brilliant Earth, there is no compromise between quality and conscience.
At Brilliant Earth, we combine the ease of online shopping with the personalized service of a fine jewelry boutique. Our team of jewelry specialists is dedicated to working with you to create the perfect piece of jewelry. We believe that jewelry that reflects your values should also reflect your unique preferences.
As part of our mission to transform the jewelry industry, we work in partnership with advocacy groups to promote awareness about conflict diamonds, dirty gold, labor and mining issues, and environmental concerns. We also donate 5% of our profits to benefit communities harmed by the jewelry industry.

I have been working at Brilliant Earth full-time (More than a year)
This is probably the best group of people that I've ever worked with. Lots of very smart and interesting people from diverse backgrounds. Products are beautiful and most customers are really happy and engaging. I've learned a ton since I've been here and I've already experienced strong growth in compensation and responsibility. Several of my colleagues have been promoted to management from junior roles. The mission is inspiring and the company really cares about the bigger issues but also smaller ways to have an impact.
Not really a con for me but my schedule includes weekend days. I had concerns at first but actually really enjoy being off during the week.
