Brilliant Earth - Wed, 06/19/2019 - 19:56

Lauren Bushnell’s Engagement Ring via Instagram @laurenbushnell


Time to make some Big, Big Plans! Congratulations to Lauren Bushnell and Chris Lane.

Bushnell’s ring from Chris Lane features a center 3.5 carat emerald cut diamond set on a delicate, diamond accented band. The elegant simplicity of the ring’s design allows the gorgeous center diamond to be the focal point, and the minimalist design is reflective of Bushnell’s down-to-earth personality.

Lauren’s ring is on trend, as emerald cut engagement rings are becoming increasingly popular. Many celebrities including J.Lo and Jennifer Lawrence have recently opted for this particular diamond shape. Elongated diamonds—including emeralds, elongated cushions and ovals—create a flattering look as their shape lengthens the wearer’s finger. Additionally, Chris knew he had picked the right ring for his fiancé-to-be as the couple had gone ring shopping together “just for fun,” five months prior to the proposal, another trend we’ve seen in the engagement ring shopping process. In a recent survey, we found that 77 percent of respondents said they would prefer to go engagement ring shopping together.

Lauren’s previous engagement ring, from Bachelor star Ben Higgins, was an Art Deco style ring featuring a 4.25 carat radiant cut diamond surrounded by over 240 round and baguette cut diamonds.

For fans hoping to emulate Lauren’s engagement ring style, we’ve rounded up our favorite lookalike rings below!

Can These Significant Others Guess Which Ring Their Partner Designed?

Brilliant Earth - Tue, 06/11/2019 - 23:33


Buzzfeed enlisted three couples in a challenge to design their significant other’s dream engagement ring.

In this challenge, half of the participants were tasked to create a one-of-a-kind engagement ring from the Brilliant Earth website that they thought best matched the hints their significant others had dropped, as well as their unique style and taste. After the rings were created, their S.O.’s were challenged to guess which ring was designed for them from a selection of five Brilliant Earth engagement rings; the Reverie Ring, Ballad Diamond Ring, Elodie Ring, Waverly Diamond Ring and Selene Diamond Ring.


What stood out most to the couples was the unique design elements of the rings, with one person noting the “delicate, rose gold” setting of the Selene Diamond Ring and that the ring “feels really personalized.” Other couples commented on the intricacy of the diamond detailing in the gallery of the Waverly Diamond Ring.

After being told that the rings were made from ethically sourced materials, one participant said, “Every time you look at it you can feel comfortable about it and feel good about the decision.” We couldn’t agree more!

Shop the looks Reverie Ring


At once feminine and contemporary, this ring divides into graceful ribbons of precious metal that intertwine and embrace the center gemstone, securing it with claw prongs.

Selene Diamond Ring


Classic simplicity defines this delicate setting, which features a thin precious metal band that gently tapers towards a diamond accent on each side of the center gem.

Waverly Diamond Ring


Featuring a sparkling halo of diamonds, this ring is at once unique and eye-catching. Scalloped pavé diamonds and a diamond encrusted gallery add to the brilliance of this ring.

Ballad Diamond Ring


This classic engagement ring features sparkling scalloped pavé diamonds that extend one half of the way around the ring. The center gem appears to float above the delicate band.

Elodie Ring


This elegant solitaire features an open basket with claw prongs that cradle the center gem. The petite band adds to the sleek, classic look of this ring.

All About June Birthstones

Brilliant Earth - Sun, 06/09/2019 - 22:01


If you’re a June birthday baby or are shopping for one, you have lots of options when it comes to birthstone jewelry.

Pearl and moonstone are two of  June’s birthstones, and both of these gems have a rich history and unique beauty. Birthstone jewelry also makes a heartfelt gift for a new mom who has had a June baby.  Here’s the scoop on June’s extraordinary birthstones:

June Birthstone History

For centuries pearls were the most valuable gem. They were treasured in ancient cultures around the world, and the 1500s of Tudor England were known as the Pearl Age. Ancient Chinese cultures believed that wearing pearls protected you from fire and dragons, and other cultures have associated them with chastity and modesty. In Victorian England small seed pearls were often used in mourning jewelry to symbolize tears.

In the early 1900s people in Asia discovered how to create cultured pearls by carefully placing a small nucleus into a living oyster, which then forms a pearl around the nucleus. Since the invention of the culturing technique, which allows pearls to be created in oyster farms, pearls have become less expensive than they once were. However, these lustrous gems are as beautiful as ever, whether cultured or wild-harvested, saltwater or freshwater, luminous white or one of the many other colors in which pearls naturally occur. Pearls are incredibly versatile, at once a go-to accessory for First Ladies and society matrons and beloved by cutting-edge fashion lovers like Rihanna.

Moonstone exhibits an almost magical, multicolored glow called adularescence, caused by light scattering between the mineral’s internal layers. This dreamy quality made it popular with artistic Art Nouveau jewelers, and moonstone is frequently seen in jewelry from that design era. It regained popularity during the hippie era of the 1960s and 70s, because of its otherworldly appearance.

Hindu mythology has said that moonstone is made of moonbeams, and many other cultures connect moonstone with moonlight because its multi-hued glow resembles the look of moonlight on the water or seen through thin clouds. With the recent popularity of vampire stories moonstone has had some big pop culture moments: The character Bella wears a moonstone ring in the film versions of the Twilight series, and rumor has it that True Blood star Anna Paquin’s real-life engagement ring features a moonstone (though some sources say that the center gem is a rough cut diamond, and the star hasn’t spilled the details).

June Birthstone Jewelry: Pearl

Pearls are prized for their natural beauty, rarity, and unique appeal. Pearls grow naturally in mollusks. Pearls can vary in color, from a bright white, to peach and pink, and even to deep blues and greys, all with a luminous and satin sheen. They are known to evoke light, warmth, and love, and make the perfect gift for those born in June. This June birthstone looks great in modern designs, but we also love vintage pearl jewelry.

Premium Akoya Cultured Pearl Stud Earrings

A beautifully matched pair of premium Akoya cultured pearls are mounted on classic white gold push back posts, exuding elegance and beauty.

Sea of Cortez Cultured Pearl Pendant with Diamond Accent

This mesmerizing cultured pearl pendant has a milgrained diamond accent and hangs from a beautiful 18″ cable chain. The eco-friendly pearl has a rich bright luster, and shimmers with a spectrum of iridescent hues.

Premium Akoya Cultured Pearl Twist Pendant

This spectacular pendant is crafted in recycled sterling silver and features a lustrous premium round Akoya cultured pearl centered in a delightfully sculptural twist.

June Birthstone Jewelry: Moonstone

Moonstones are recognized for their stunning earthy glow. They range from very translucent to opaque in appearance. Their beauty is often described as mysterious or otherworldly. Vintage moonstone jewelry makes for a magical June birthday gift.

The Briggs Ring

Classic and timelessly chic, this Edwardian-style ring features a lustrous moonstone set with unmistakable vintage allure.

The Kaladar Ring

Utterly unique, this Retro-era moonstone ring features decorative prongs and two baguette-cut diamond accents.

Pearl Halo Diamond Earrings

A moonstone is surrounded by a halo of sapphire cabochons in this Retro-era ring.

The Cinta Ring

A luminous rose colored cultured pearl rests at the center of a diamond halo in this unique Edwardian-era 10K yellow gold and sterling silver ring.

The Ivett Ring

Dating from the 1830’s, this extremely rare and unique Georgian-era ring showcases a natural pearl placed amongst a bursting sterling silver halo of diamond accents, all resting atop a lustrous 10K rose gold band.

The Badden Ring

This majestic Victorian-era ring effortlessly holds a center round moonstone cabochon in a warm 10K yellow gold setting.

How to Find Out Her Ring Size Without Her Knowing

Brilliant Earth - Tue, 06/04/2019 - 17:00


Brilliant Earth jewelry expert Jessica Anand is frequently asked by our customers about how they can find out their girlfriend’s ring size without her knowing. Here we’ve shared some of Jessica’s best tips and tricks!

Request a Free Ring Sizer

We are happy to send you a complimentary plastic ring sizer so that you can easily measure your ring size at home. Plastic ring sizers shipped to the US and Canada will arrive within five to seven business days and delivery time to Australia may take longer.

Send me updates on new styles and special offers. REQUEST INFO


1. Be Subtle

If you are absolutely set on a surprise proposal but you still want to find out her ring size directly from the source, ask your girlfriend in a very subtle, smooth way. You can pretend, for example, that you are going to buy a ring for your mom/sister/aunt/niece etc. Make sure that this pretend recipient is someone whose hands are similar in size to your girlfriend. Casually ask what her ring size is for reference. If you really want to beef up the ruse, purchase an inexpensive ring and show it to her. Have her try it on and everything! Maybe afterward you can actually give that ring to your mom/sister/aunt/niece to appease your guilty conscience!


2. Ask Her Friends

A great way to find out her ring size is to ask one of her friends. Friends occasionally have this insight! And, if the friend doesn’t know right away, she can be the one to ask (nonchalantly). Even better, ask the friend to take your girlfriend engagement ring shopping “for fun.” Have her get professionally sized and ask her friend to report back to you. It’s best to choose a friend who might have once had acting aspirations!


3. Borrow One of her Rings

Another method is to snag one of her old rings for a day. You need to be careful with this method because it might backfire on you! Make sure that you grab a ring that she wears on a similarly sized finger, the ring finger of her right hand being the optimal choice (unless, of course, she wears a ring on her left ring finger, which is less likely). Even if you bring in a thumb ring we can usually come up with a close approximation of what size her ring finger will be. If you choose this option, make sure that you choose a ring that isn’t overly important to her and wouldn’t cause any emotional distress if she notices it missing!


4. Leave a Trace

If you are terrified of losing one of her rings try this method instead. Take one of her rings and place it on a piece of paper. Draw a circle on the inside and outside of the ring. Do this several times to make sure that your ring traces look consistent. We can usually figure out the diameter of her ring from your sketch!


5. Enlist a Friend

If one of your partner’s friends is engaged, ask her friend to let your girlfriend try on the ring. This will put you in a ballpark size range to start out with. You can also use this as an opportunity to ask what she thought of her friend’s ring (in private) and try to do a little sleuthing as to what style of ring she would like for herself.


6. Compare Fingers

This method is a little more difficult, but if you are desperate, go ahead and try it out! When you are holding her hand,see if one of her fingers is similar in size to a finger of yours. For example, her ring finger might be as big as your pinky. This method isn’t amazingly accurate, but the more information we have on her ring size the closer we can get!


7. Ask Your Partner!

There are some people in this world who like to do things the hard way, and then there are those who are very straightforward. If you and your partner have been discussing marriage for quite some time, ask her outright what her ring size is! Don’t worry though— you can still have the element of surprise. After all, she doesn’t know when you’re going to ask her, or how! If she doesn’t know her ring size, she can find it using our printable ring sizing guide.


Keep in Mind:

The two most accurate ways to confirm ring size are to come in and have your partner sized by us in person or have them visit a local jeweler. Using one or several of the methods above will result in a very good approximation, but there is always the risk that it will be slightly off.

Please note that for custom designed rings, we highly recommend visiting a local jeweler or coming in and having her finger sized with us, as custom pieces are final sale and may not be able to be resized in the future. Err on a larger size so that it will be guaranteed to slip over her finger when you propose.

Interesting Ring Size Facts:
  • Our dominant hands tend to be slightly bigger (so make sure you are measuring for her left!)
  • The most common women’s ring size is 6 to 6.5.
  • Wider rings have a tighter fit than thinner bands, so if you borrow a ring for us to measure, try to make sure that it is the same width as the ring you plan on purchasing.
  • Brilliant Earth is happy to ship you a free ring sizer, so that you can measure your ring size in the comfort of your home!



What if I just can’t figure out the size?

If you simply can’t figure out the size or you don’t want to risk it, consider choosing a temporary setting to propose with. Our temporary setting is our 18K White Gold 2mm Comfort Fit Ring. You have sixty days to propose, have her properly sized, and send the ring back. Once you have her perfect size, we can set your diamond in your ideal setting.  This way she gets to see the diamond you chose, but there isn’t the risk of having to resize the actual setting. Please contact us about this option, so we can explain the exact process to you! This is also a great option for those who don’t know whether to purchase an engagement ring before or after proposing.

Good luck!

Brilliant Earth - Wed, 05/29/2019 - 21:54


Your wedding day should be a celebration of who and what you love, and the jewelry you wear should be a reflection of that.

A symbol of love and commitment, wedding rings are meant to celebrate love of all kinds. Whether through the relationships we have, the ways we like to dress, or even the jewelry we wear, we all should have the freedom to express ourselves in a way that feels right.

What we wear is an extension of ourselves, and we believe in wearing what makes you feel like your most comfortable self. Commemorating one of the most special moments in your life, your wedding ring should especially celebrate your own unique form of love and expression.

Celebrity Inspired Emerald Cut Engagement Rings

Brilliant Earth - Tue, 05/14/2019 - 01:35
Jennifer Lopez’s Engagement Ring via Instagram @people


At Brilliant Earth, we’re always paying attention to the latest trends in engagement rings, and one that’s recently caught our eye (and the eyes of many celebrities!) is emerald cut diamonds.

A sophisticated rectangular shape with geometric facets, emerald diamonds are treasured for their elegant silhouette. With celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Lawrence, Beyoncé, Amal Clooney, and more all wearing emerald cut engagement rings, it is the most sought-after step cut fancy shape.

Emerald Cut Diamonds

Like other square or rectangular shapes, emerald diamonds are known as a step cut diamonds, which offer a different type of appeal from a classic round cut diamond. Step cut diamonds offer exceptional clarity and a distinctive look when set in engagement rings. Instead of the brilliance typically offered by a round diamond, step cut diamonds produce a prismatic reflection which creates a mirrored staircase look – hence the name!

A striking and sophisticated choice, discover some of our favorite celebrity-inspired emerald diamond rings below!

Tapered Baguette Diamond Ring

With a delicate band, the Tapered Baguette Diamond Ring evokes the classic beauty epitomized by women like Amal Clooney. Clooney’s engagement ring features similar tapered baguette diamonds framing the center emerald diamond.

Horizontal Petite Comfort Fit Ring

Petite and delicate, the classic Horizontal Petite Comfort Fit Ring features four prongs that cradle a horizontally set emerald cut diamond for a distinct look.

Piper Diamond Ring

Captivating baguette diamonds are prong-set and vertically aligned in the elegant Piper Diamond Ring, brilliantly complementing the center emerald cut.

Waverly Diamond Ring

The sparkling Waverly Diamond Ring features beautiful scalloped pavé diamonds that encircle the center diamond and adorn the band. A diamond-encrusted gallery makes this ring truly spectacular.

Elodie Ring

An elegant and timeless solitaire, the Elodie Ring features an open basket with claw prongs that cradle the center gem. The petite band adds to the sleek, classic look of this ring.  Plus, it resembles the new stunner that Jennifer Lopez just received from A-Rod!

Fortuna Diamond Ring

The exceptional Fortuna Diamond Ring features a halo of diamond accents that curve gently around the center diamond for a distinctive look. Two rows of pavé diamonds sparkle on the contemporary split shank band, while a surprise row of diamond accents on the bridge completes this glamorous look. Victoria’s Secret model Josephine Skriver rocks a similar style ring!

Horizontal Petite Shared Prong Diamond Ring

The dainty Horizontal Petite Shared Prong Diamond Ring features sheer sparkle that extends halfway around the ring with a horizontally set center diamond for a striking look.

Ballad Diamond Ring

A classic engagement ring, the Ballad Diamond Ring features sparkling scalloped pavé diamonds that extend one half of the way around the ring. The center diamond appears to float above the delicate band.

Reina Diamond Ring

Unique and elegant, a regal halo of diamond accents surrounds a shimmering center emerald cut diamond in the dazzling Reina Diamond Ring.

Provence Diamond Ring

The timeless Provence Diamond Ring features a petite band that sweeps up to embrace the center gemstone in delicate claw prongs. This elegant style resembles the ring Jennifer Lawrence received from beau Cooke Maroney.

Emerald Eternity Diamond Ring

The dazzling Emerald Eternity Diamond Ring features prong-set emerald cut diamonds that encircle the finger for a timeless, eye-catching look. Queen Letizia of Spain wears a style that is similar!
