Forever inspiration from four inspiring women

Extraordinary and inspirational, as part of De Beers Forevermark’s “Be Inspired: Women, Forever” series, we celebrate four accomplished women and their passionate pursuits in life. From a leading chef to doting mother, each woman shines in their own unique way, and a way that inspires Forever. They include celebrity chef and restauranteur, Esther Sham, famed photographer and stylist, Olivia Tsang, renowned fashion designer, Cecilia Yau, and top model and TV host, Cara G.

Profiling the lives of these four iconic women who epitomise the same passion and integrity De Beers Forevermark strives for in pursuit of its beautiful, rare and responsibly sourced diamonds, we showcase each woman for their individual achievements and values, revealing what ‘Forever’ means to them.

Cara G, model, actress and entrepreneur –
the joy of togetherness

A TV host, blogger, model, entrepreneur, actress and a loving mother of two, Cara G simultaneously juggles multiple roles in her life.

Working alongside De Beers Forevermark since the launch of the Endlea Collection in Milan in 2016, Cara G will collaborate again with De Beers Forevermark in a craftsmanship workshop along with her closest friends to highlight the joy of togetherness.

As a true symbol of success and a role model inspiring women to empower themselves through work, love and friendships, Cara G demonstrates the same kind of passion that is synonymous with the De Beers Forevermark name. Forever for Cara is something that lasts beyond our lifetime, it transcends time. Whether it’s a moment or a gift, it’s something that can be passed on for generations.

Forever means to me something that lasts beyond our lifetime, something that will be here for years or centuries to come, even long after you’re gone… A moment or a gift, that can be passed on for generations.

Olivia Tsang, photographer and stylist –
captured moments

Olivia Tsang adheres to the highest levels of dedication, professionalism and respect when it comes to her career. A renowned photographer and stylist, Tsang has partnered with De Beers Forevermark on numerous projects. This included a trip to Botswana in southern Africa to explore the incredible journey of a De Beers Forevermark diamond. Tsang explains how she was inspired by the eye-opening experience, “When I witnessed the impact on women, children and sustainable development by De Beers Forevermark's practice of responsible sourcing, I realised the meaning of ‘A Diamond Is Forever’. The respect and passion I put into my work, is what ‘Forever’ really means to me.”

the perfect balance

Esther Sham, the mother of two, boasts an impressive resume. Model-turned-chef and now owner of French restaurant, Maison ES, Sham has collaborated with De Beers Forevermark on “In Love with Swans” – an afternoon tea where Sham shares her inspiration through De Beers Forevermark’s Swan Bridal Collection. A collection exclusively designed by jeweller Chow Tai Fook.

Priding herself on her ability to strike the perfect balance between work and family, Sham reveals, “To me, ‘Forever’ means something that is never-changing and never-ending, like the love we have for family and the passion we have for work. I feel so blessed to have them in my life. I will protect them with all my heart and soul forever.”
