THE EXCEPTIONAL DIAMOND PROGRAM: Of all of the polished diamonds emerging from the rough diamonds mined by the De Beers Group of Companies, only one in a million has what it takes to be an exceptional Forevermark diamond. Typically above five carats after being polished, the gems in this program boast of a carat weight, colour and purity that make them extraordinarily rare.

The mesmerising result of decades of research and development by the De Beers Group of Companies, the study revolved around how light travels within a diamond – based on its cut and polish, facet alignment, and shape.
