Why Brilliant Earth Has a Tradition of Giving

Brilliant Earth, a fine jewelry store, founded in 2005 by Beth Gerstein, who at the time was having troubles finding the right engagement ring that will represent her style and values, partnered with Eric Grossberg who in 2005 was impassionated (and still is) with the idea that ethically sourced fine jewelry could be a start of something new – a positive change in the jewelry industry.
Today, we can say that the partnership and cooperation between Beth and Eric was successful because that exact partnership has grown into a brand, a company, and a team of qualified and dedicated jewelry designers and gemologists who are working really hard to provide beautiful, unique, and conflict free jewelry.
