Notes to Editors:
Every Forevermark diamond is inscribed with a promise; a promise that it is beautiful, rare and responsibly sourced. Less than one per cent of the world's diamonds are eligible to become a Forevermark diamond and be inscribed with the Forevermark icon and individual number.
Forevermark is a diamond brand from the De Beers group of companies and as such, benefits from over 120 years of diamond expertise. Forevermark diamonds are carefully selected and come from sources committed to high standards; are beautifully crafted by a select group of diamantaires; and are exclusively available in select jewelers.
FOREVERMARK INSCRIPTION & GRADING
Less than one per cent of the world's diamonds are eligible to become a Forevermark diamond and be inscribed with the Forevermark icon and individual identification number. Invisible to the naked eye, the inscription is made using bespoke technology from the De Beers group. It is also recorded on the personalized Forevermark identification card which comes with each and every Forevermark diamond. The actual size of the inscription found on Forevermark diamonds is only 1/20th of a micron deep and can only be seen using a special Forevermark viewer which can be found in Authorized Forevermark Jewelers. It is confirmed by leading gemological institutes that the Forevermark inscription does not affect the internal quality of a diamond in any way.
Authorized Forevermark Jewelers are able to provide a Forevermark Diamond Grading Report. It is an accurate blueprint of the qualities - cut, color, clarity and carat of each Forevermark diamond. The Forevermark Diamond Grading Report also features the individual identification number inscribed on the diamond and a specifically designed security hologram, providing reassurance that the Forevermark Diamond Grading Report is valid and genuine.
