A diamond must go through, at minimum, a seventeen-step process at the hands of master selectors and expert graders to become a Forevermark diamond.
Using patented technology developed by the De Beers group, Forevermark diamonds are inscribed with an icon and a unique identification number which is invisible to the naked eye and in no way affects the internal clarity of the diamond.
Less than 1% of the world's natural diamonds are eligible to become a Forevermark diamond, meaning that each and every one is a masterpiece.
The Forevermark promise means that each Forevermark diamond is not only beautiful and rare, but also responsibly sourced.
Throughout a Forevermark diamond's journey from rough to polished, particular care is taken to ensure responsible business practices through Forevermark’s Three Pillars of Responsible Sourcing: Protecting The Natural World, The Mark of Integrity and For Women, Forever.
Protecting The Natural World
For every hectare mined by De Beers (Forevermark’s parent company), 6 hectares is set aside for conservation. So far, approximately 200,000 hectares of land around DeBeers’ mines has been set aside for this purpose. This includes a 15,669 hectare conservation park in Botswana which is home to more than 1,700 animals and a field unit for Cheetah conservation. At certain times of the year when the Caribou migrate, mining is stopped to allow safe passage for the animals.
The De Beers Group has been active in rhino conservation for many years, including breeding and relocation programmes. The white rhino, in particular, is under severe threat. This has led to De Beers undergoing a joint venture with the Government of Botswana to support a significant proportion of Botswana’s white rhino population through initiatives that conserve and grow the population and release individual rhinos back into the wild.
Mark of Integrity
At the heart of a Forevermark diamond lies an enduring commitment to integrity. Each Forevermark diamond’s unique inscription is an assurance that it has been tracked and monitored at every stage of its journey to ensure it is conflict-free, untreated and natural.
For Women. Forever
Forevermark supports women and their families in diamond producing countries by providing access to education, healthcare, professional training and enterprise development programmes. De Beers supports a diverse range of initiatives which help women become successful entrepreneurs by assisting in their development, funding and mentoring to enable them to grow their own businesses.
