Of all the world’s diamonds, less than one percent is eligible to become Forevermark. Every Forevermark diamond receives an inscription that represents our promise that it is beautiful, rare and responsibly sourced. This means you can be proud to own and wear your Forevermark diamond forever.
Diamonds that are eligible to become Forevermark are sent to the Forevermark Diamond Institute, the internationally renowned center of diamond excellence, with locations in Antwerp, Belgium; Surat, India; and Maidenhead, United Kingdom. As part of the De Beers group of companies, our experts draw on cutting-edge bespoke technology and 125 years of diamond expertise to carefully inspect every diamond, going beyond the technical qualities of the 4Cs to hand-pick only those diamonds that are truly beautiful. Only once a diamond’s provenance and quality are confirmed can it receive the Forevermark inscription – a symbol of our promise.
Invisible to the naked eye, this inscription includes the Forevermark icon and a unique number, making each Forevermark diamond as special as the promise made when it is given or received. . The inscription is 1/20th of a micron deep – 1/5,000th the depth of a human hair – and is placed on the table facet of the diamond, using confidential, proprietary technology. It does not affect the internal quality of the diamond.
The inscription can only be seen with a Forevermark Viewer, which offers superb magnification and clarity. The inscription also allows each Forevermark diamond to be registered in your name, confirming it as uniquely yours.
