Brilliant Earth, jewelry that's ethically sourced, opens in L.A.

'Brilliant Earth believes that luxury goods need not come at great human or environmental cost'

San Francisco-based Brilliant Earth, which specializes in ethically-sourced fine jewelry, has opened a showroom in Los Angeles.

The 1,000-square-foot space in the Beverly Robinson Design Plaza in West Hollywood includes two areas for private client consultations.

Brilliant Earth's mission is to provide high quality jewelry that is made from materials harvested using socially responsible practices.  "Brilliant Earth believes that luxury goods need not come at great human or environmental cost," the company says in the mission statement on its website. Besides dealing in ethically sourced gemstones and metals, the company earmarks 5% of its profits to help communities that have suffered from unethical jewelry industry practices.

The showroom is at 8797 Beverly Blvd., Suite 206. It is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday through Monday, by appointment only. Appointments should be made two days in advance (although sometimes last-minute bookings are available) by calling (800) 691-0952 or going online to www.brilliantearth/los-angeles-jewelry-store/
