Forevermark continues to go from strength to strength; the launch in Turkey follows the ongoing, successful expansion of the brand across Asia, North America, the Middle East, southern Africa and most recently, Australia. More than 1,320 retail outlets across five continents now sell Forevermark diamonds and the brand recently inscribed its 1 millionth Forevermark diamond.

Emil Güzeliş, the chairman of Zen Diamond, said,  "It is an honor to be working with Forevermark, the world’s leading diamond brand, as their licensee in Turkey. Zen Diamond dedicates itself to diamonds; we are the leaders in diamond jewelry manufacturing, retail and export in Turkey, so this is a fitting partnership for us. We are proud to be one of the selected jewelers exclusively providing the world's most beautiful diamonds - Forevermark diamonds - to our clients. I am sure this will be an important market for the brand."

Forevermark diamonds will be available in a range of designs, including the Cornerstones™ and Forevermark Setting™ collections as well as Zen Diamond’s own unique diamond jewelry designs.

Every Forevermark diamond is inscribed with a promise; a promise that it is beautiful, rare and responsibly sourced. Less than 1 percent of the world’s diamonds are eligible to become a Forevermark diamond and be inscribed with the Forevermark icon and individual number. Forevermark is a diamond brand from the De Beers group of companies and as such, benefits from over 125 years of diamond expertise. Forevermark diamonds are carefully selected and come from sources committed to high standards; are beautifully crafted by a select group of diamantaires; and are exclusively available from select jewelers.

Invisible to the naked eye, the inscription is made using bespoke technology from the De Beers group. It is also recorded on the personalized Forevermark identification card which comes with each and every Forevermark diamond. The actual size of the inscription found on Forevermark diamonds is only 1/20th of a micron deep and can only be seen using a special Forevermark viewer, which can be found in authorized Forevermark Jewellers. It is confirmed by leading gemological institutes that the Forevermark inscription does not affect the internal quality of a diamond in any way.
Authorized Forevermark Jewellers are able to provide a Forevermark Diamond Grading Report. It is an accurate blueprint of the qualities -- cut, color, clarity and caratage of each Forevermark diamond. The Forevermark Diamond Grading Report also features the individual identification number inscribed on the diamond and a specifically designed security hologram, providing reassurance that the Forevermark Diamond Grading Report is valid and genuine.
