De Beers Forevermark unveils the Females in Focus exhibition in New York City

At an intimate cocktail event in New York City’s Meatpacking district, we unveiled our Females in Focus portrait series that highlights the stories of six exceptional women. Shot by renowned photographer Sophie Elgort, the series features portraits of Rosario Dawson, Janet Mock, Cristina Ehrlich, Violetta Komyshan, Dr. Niamey Wilson and Elgort herself. Styled by Ehrlich using the Forevermark Tribute™ Collection, which honors the unique qualities and characteristics of the woman who wears it, each woman in the series conveyed her own sense of style through the endless combinations of the multi-diamond designs.

When talking about the project, Elgort said, “This collaboration was such a natural fit for me as an artist. Portrait photography is a form of storytelling, and to have the opportunity to photograph these incredible women is a way of celebrating their stories.”

Each De Beers Forevermark diamond is unique and in wearing them in her own way, each woman can celebrate the one of a kind qualities that make her who she is.

Actor Michelle Williams and model Chanel Iman were among the inspirational women in attendance of the event to celebrate the featured women and reflect on their own unique qualities. 

The event also launched our online store (exclusive to the US), which features select pieces from the Forevermark Tribute™ Collection and Forevermark Alchemy™ Collection by Jade Trau. Charles Stanley, President of De Beers Forevermark US, explained, “We have always believed in the ability of art and fashion to empower women, which is why we were so thrilled to collaborate with Sophie on this series. The Forevermark Tribute™ Collection symbolizes the unique and multi-dimensioned woman wearing it, and we are delighted that De Beers Forevermark’s entry into e-commerce will continue to provide new opportunities for women to use diamonds to tell their stories.” 

Celebrating For Women. Forever

We were extremely honored to host an event that celebrated such extraordinary and talented women. As part of our own ongoing For Women. Forever work, it is extremely important to us to continue to celebrate the women who are dedicated to using their voice to make a change in the advancement of women – an empowerment we greatly value and live by.
