Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a question, query or need some help, discover our frequently asked questions below.
Alternatively, if you still can’t find what you’re looking for, contact our customer service team.
What are the 4C’s?
The standard 4C’s refer to a diamond’s Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat weight. These help in the grading or assessment of the quality of the diamond in question, and as such play a part in the valuation of the stone too. At De Beers Forevermark we believe this is just the beginning and that there is much more to a diamond than just these four traits, we go beyond the 4Cs to ensure only the world’s most beautiful diamonds can become De Beers Forevermark.
How do I check the inscription number of my De Beers Forevermark diamond?
Each De Beers Forevermark diamond above 0.10 carat is inscribed with the De Beers Forevermark icon and a unique identification number. They are also accompanied by a De Beers Forevermark Diamond Identification Card that includes verification of each diamonds shape, carat weight and unique inscription number – the number that identifies the diamond to be unique.
If you are interested in viewing the inscription number on your De Beers Forevermark diamonds, you can bring your diamonds into your local Authorised De Beers Forevermark Jeweller and request to view the inscription number with the De Beers Forevermark Viewer.
Do all De Beers Forevermark diamonds come with a Grading Report?
De Beers Forevermark diamonds of 0.50 carat and above come with a grading report. The report contains detailed information on the diamond’s cut, clarity, colour and carat weight. You can download a PDF copy of your Grading Report after you have registered your diamond on our website.
Every De Beers Forevermark diamond is also accompanied by a Diamond ID Card, which includes verification of each diamond’s shape, carat weight and unique inscription number.
What is De Beers Forevermark doing to protect the environment?
All De Beers Forevermark diamonds are products of nature, formed in the earth over billions of years ago. Our passion for diamonds is matched by our deep sense of connection with the natural world, which we are dedicated to protecting for future generations. De Beers Forevermark, as part of the De Beers Group, is committed to the preservation and protection of environmental habitats, their species and the wider natural world. Respect for nature is deeply ingrained in the De Beers Forevermark philosophy, as it is in that of the De Beers Group. That is why, for every hectare of land De Beers Group uses to recover diamonds, it dedicates six hectares to conservation. The land it manages for conservation covers around 200,000 hectares and is home to several indigenous and endangered species.

Diamond Care & Repair
What is the best way to take care of my De Beers Forevermark diamond jewellery?
Whilst diamonds are the hardest natural material known to man it doesn’t mean they don’t need taking care of. When not being worn, we recommend you keep your piece in jewellery box or soft cloth pouch in a dry, cool and secure location. We also recommend taking out adequate insurance to cover you against loss or theft. It’s also worth noting that your diamond jewellery can easily become exposed to harsh chemicals or abrasive solutions. Whether it is wearing perfume, applying sunscreen, washing up, or simply using hairspray, these chemicals can erode or dull metal settings. It is often best to remove your jewellery or wear protective clothing.
When taking off a ring you should always ensure to pick it up by its band, not by the diamond or the setting. This will help to keep the diamond secure in its setting as well as preventing natural oils from your hands building up around the diamond.
For further information, please visit our How to Care for Your Diamond Guide page on our website.
Can my De Beers Forevermark jewellery be repaired?
If your piece has been damaged, please contact the Authorised De Beers Forevermark Jeweller where you made the purchase directly to find out the possible repairing options. Unfortunately because De Beers Forevermark does not manufacture the jewellery, we are not able to offer a repair service.
What do I do if my De Beers Forevermark diamond is lost or stolen?
Given the preciousness and high value of your De Beers Forevermark jewellery we recommend that you take out adequate insurance to protect against theft or loss of your piece. If you believe your De Beers Forevermark diamond has been stolen, we recommend contacting your local police station. De Beers Forevermark does not directly offer a tracking service, although if you have registered your diamond with us this may help in terms of proof or purchase or identification.
Where can I get my De Beers Forevermark diamond jewellery cleaned?
We recommend that you take your jewellery to your Authorised De Beers Forevermark Jeweller for professional cleaning once every six months. The jeweller can also inspect your ring for any weakness or trauma, making sure that the diamond remains safe in its setting.
In between professional cleans you can clean your diamond jewellery yourself by simply using hot soapy water and gently brushing it using a soft-bristle toothbrush. Alternatively, you could use aa solution of one-part ammonia to six-parts warm water, rinsing well to renew the sparkle. Shop-bought non-abrasive jewellery cleaners are also another option to clean your diamond. Make sure the cleaner is safe to use on your jewellery metal, as well as on the diamond itself. After cleaning, rub gently with a soft cloth to accentuate your diamonds shine.
