(PRESS RELEASE) Brilliant Earth, the leading global retailer of responsibly sourced fine jewelry, announces a partnership with Diamonds That Care, the social initiative and a namesake brand of Alrosa, the world’s leading diamond producer. Brilliant Earth and Diamonds That Care will unveil a new responsible limited-edition jewelry collection benefiting people in need.

Launching late summer, the Diamonds That Care collection exclusively available to Brilliant Earth customers will include nine designs, all handcrafted from recycled gold and featuring natural diamonds of brown hues, ethically mined in Yakutia. Ten percent of the sales from each piece will be donated directly to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Every Diamonds That Care collection piece is engraved with the message “I Care”, symbolizing the generosity behind each design.

“Brilliant Earth was founded on a commitment to social and environmental responsibility, and we strive to make jewelry you can feel good about wearing. This partnership reinforces that ethos and provides another opportunity to give back to those in need,” says Beth Gerstein, CEO and co-founder of Brilliant Earth.

Diamonds That Care started as a social responsibility initiative of Alrosa aimed at giving back to society. Many projects under this initiative have already been implemented in Yakutia, a region in Siberia: hospitals, schools, sports and cultural centers in small towns and remote villages have been constructed using funds generated by Alrosa’s diamond mining and polishing operations.

“Diamonds That Care is more than a brand name, it is a line of thought, a calling to the luxury industry to cultivate more products and projects “that care” for the communities. We believe every natural diamond should be more than just part of a jewelry piece but a helping hand for those who need support. People have become much more responsible than before, and now the diamond is another way to show responsibility”, – says Sergey Ivanov, Alrosa CEO”.

Recently, Diamonds That Care has already taken the first step, bringing diamond charity to the world level. The initiative raised $338,781 through the sale of three Anna Hu design jewelry pieces at Christie’s auction. The funds are donated to the Brave of Heart Fund, which was founded to provide financial and emotional support to the families of frontline healthcare workers and volunteers who have lost their lives in the COVID-19 fight.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
