One Tree Planted
For every Brilliant purchase you make we plant one tree.
A win all-round.
Brilliant gems are produced in state-of-the-art facilities so you know for sure they are conflict-free. What’s more, they are far kinder to the environment than mining for diamonds where as much as 250 tons of earth is blasted and excavated in order to find just one carat of gem diamond.
Diamond mining has taken an enormous toll on our environment—huge, permanent holes dug into the earth, polluted ground waters, wildlife displacement—the list goes on. We seek to help Earth by partnering with the One Tree Planted organization.
Brilliant and One Tree Planted both share the same passions and concerns for our environment. It is imperative new trees are continually planted, to facilitate reforestation, biodiversity creation and creating new eco-conscious employment.
That’s why we are proud to donate 1 tree to be planted for every purchase made. With the new trees made available by your purchase, we will work with One Tree Planted to focus reforestation primarily in Africa, where people have suffered the worst consequences from diamond mining.
WHY PLANT TREES?
AIR: trees absorb harmful pollutants so we don’t have to, converting bad air to good in the form of clean oxygen released for us to breathe
CLIMATE: The carbon dioxide and other pollutants absorbed by trees help to clean air and regulate climate
WATER: trees purify rain water for our safe use, prevent floods and maintain Earth’s water cycles
BIODIVERSITY: forests full of healthy trees provide habitat to many animals, birds, insects, fungi, moss, and plants—all necessary components for our eco-system to thrive
SOCIAL IMPACT: planting and maintaining trees provides jobs, yielding security to workers in many communities
HEALTH: trees and nature are proven to reduce stress, aid in recovery and promote overall wellness
One Tree Planted places trees on 4 continents around the world: North America, South America, Africa and Asia. Reforestation focus areas include wildfire restoration, biodiversity, habitat expansion, agroforestry, food security, social impact and watershed maintenance among others.
We hope you’ll join us celebrating and supporting the Earth’s most vulnerable environments.
