Individual Selection

Forevermark Goes Beyond The Standard 4Cs To Individually Select Only The Most Beautiful Diamonds

While all grading reports assess diamond for colour, clarity, cut and carat weight (the standard 4Cs), Forevermark individually selects diamonds against additional rigid criteria to ensure that only the most beautiful diamonds become Forevermark.

This assurance comes from Forevermark's exacting selection process that is so rigorous, less than 1% of the world's diamonds can become Forevermark.

A standard grading report only tells part of a diamond’s story as the 4Cs are only four of the many characteristics of a diamond.

In fact, since every diamond is as unique as a snowflake, even two diamonds with the same 4Cs grade may not be the same and therefore not equally beautiful.

Pursuit of Absolute Beauty

Forevermark considers a number of different additional criteria when selecting diamonds to ensure that the only diamonds we choose are truly beautiful.

The Standard 4Cs

Diamond grading is an assessment of the 4Cs. Each of the 4Cs describes one of a diamond’s core characteristics—its cut, colour, clarity and carat weight. The 4Cs play a role in determining a diamond’s value. However, there is much more to a diamond's value – and beauty – than just these four traits.

The Standard 4Cs: Carat

A carat is the metric unit used to measure a diamond’s weight. One carat equals 200 milligrams, and each carat is divided into hundredths called points.
