In today’s world, there’s a huge focus on supporting companies that have strong values and ethics. This is especially true for many shoppers when it comes to buying jewelry, particularly diamonds. This is because far too many diamonds that make their way into our jewelry boxes are sourced using less than ethical practices. The good news is that we can choose to shop with companies that use much more sound practices so that your next diamond can come from a company you feel good about!

If you’re shopping for an engagement ring, this may be top of mind. We’ve rounded up some of the most ethical diamond ring companies so that you can make the most educated choice possible as you shop.

Brilliant Earth

Brilliant Earth is all about offering eco-friendly diamonds to their customers. This brand follows strict ethical guidelines, ensuring that all materials are derived from mines that have sound labor, trade, and environmental standards. Furthermore, Brilliant Earth only accepts diamonds from areas that possess a fair trade diamond certification, further verifying their strong call to ethics.

On top of that, Brilliant Earth recycles its gold and platinum in order to further reduce a need to mine those materials. You can shop ethically without sacrificing on options, as they have tons of diamonds to choose from as well as choices for settings, shapes, and clarity.

Up next is a company called Valley Rose. This is the perfect place to shop if you want to buy a unique diamond ring that you can feel good about. These pieces are each handcrafted by a Northern California-based designer Brittany Groshong. They use a technique called lost-wax casting. In this process, they create an original model hand carved out of wax. Using only the highest quality of ethically sourced materials, they build beautiful jewels. Some of the materials used are fairmined gold and ethical gemstones which include recycled diamonds and SCS certified sustainably rated grown diamonds.

Littman Jewelers
