For a diamond ring, this is usually around two weeks from the date the order is placed, but can be up to four.

This time allows for the diamond to be sourced from a supplier and matched to your ring setting, plus the ring setting to be sized to fit the wearer perfectly.

When it comes to the actual shipping itself, Brilliant Earth use FedEx for all its shipping for customers.

On the FedEx website, it says that deliveries within the United States takes 1-5 working business days. If you’re in Alaska or Hawaii, it will take up to 3-7 days, due to the longer distances. You can click through to the Brilliant Earth shipping page here to read more.
