Our Journey Toward Sustainability
At Grown Brilliance, our years of experience and knowledge in the jewelry industry have helped us identify the unique opportunity and incredible need for an alternative to traditionally mined diamonds. We crafted a brand that delivers at every level of our commitment to quality, ethics, product integrity, design and value. Stripping away the friction and ambiguity in the online diamond buying process by offering you high-quality jewelry choices that ethically sourced and 100% guilt-free, is our main goal. Our commitment to ethical luxury parallels your commitment to ethical shopping at the best possible price...always.
The process of traditionally securing mined diamonds has been known to be very destructive to the environment and comes at a high cost to both the earth as well as, you, the consumer. It is no secret that conflict diamonds still exist today, and their sales contribute to the funding of war, abuse, and oppression. Preventing this pattern of violence is what inspired us to start a brand that is committed to selling only 100% conflict-free, lab grown diamonds.
Lab created diamonds are remarkable in quality but instead of being mined from the ground are grown in highly controlled laboratory environments using advanced technological processes that duplicate the conditions in the earth. Learn more about the process here.
The optical, chemical and visual composition of a lab-created diamond is identical to a mined diamond. Since it is grown in a controlled environment, we can even control the color and clarity to some extent. This helps us offer clearer and near colorless diamonds at prices that are much lower than that of mined diamonds of similar qualities. We believe you deserve value and quality without compromising on ethics or conscious choice. We believe everyone deserves diamonds, our commitment is to find the diamonds that deserve you!

Lab grown diamonds are the ethical choice for anyone who loves diamonds but wants to avoid conflict diamonds. Conflict diamonds are still mined in war-torn areas of the world, which puts their workers at risk and destroys the environment through deforestation and environmental pollution. These special stones give you beautiful jewelry without risking human lives or devastating wildlife habitats.

Recycled gold is an ethical luxury. It's an opportunity to feel good about choosing a metal that has been lovingly made into something new again.
Our recycled gold refines your old gold into luxury jewelry, jewels, and other timeless pieces that are perfect for the person who wants to stand out from the crowd.
Recycled gold is created by a process that allows you to reuse unused precious metals, such as jewelry and other types of gold. By recycling old, broken or unwanted gold items, we can help keep processed and refined gold out of our landfills, reduce the amount of raw materials required for new gold products, and limit the need for additional mining activities.
We use 96% recycled gold in all our products. We do this because we believe that recycling is a way to protect Mother Earth and at the same time create beautiful things. The unique process we have developed makes sure your piece of jewelry is absolutely original and of world-class quality.
We are committed to making ethical choices that contribute to a healthier planet. That's why we are proud to use 100% recyclable packaging,made from biodegradable materials and plantable seeded paper and designed with the utmost care for both your products and the Earth.We believe in the power of responsible choices to create a positive change, starting with the materials we use.Shop Lab-Grown Jewelry

As part of our journey towards sustainability, we purchase carbon credits in an effort to reduce the carbon footprint in our lab grown diamond jewelry supply chain. This means that we offset a portion of the greenhouse gas emissions that are created from growing, cutting, and polishing the diamonds as well as manufacturing the jewelry.
