Press Release: Forevermark, the diamond brand from the De Beers Group of Companies, last night celebrated their Australian launch with a glamorous soiree in Sydney. From today forward, Forevermark diamonds will be available from authorized jewelers in Australia, including Diamonds International, Musson and Percy Marks in the cities of Brisbane and Sydney.

Acclaimed television presenter and journalist Sarah Harris and Forevermark hosted high-profile guests, including Steven Khalil, Nerida Winter and Donny Galella, at a stunning event in the iconic Guillaume at Bennelong restaurant, Sydney Opera House. Guests were treated to an evening of exceptional Forevermark diamond pieces seen on elegant models and in specially curated displays. The stunning collection included Forevermark diamond jewelry worn by international stars, including Grammy Award-winner Alicia Keys and actresses Liz Hurley and Elizabeth McGovern.

Forevermark's CEO, Stephen Lussier, said, "We expect Forevermark to do exceptionally well in Australia. We partner with jewelers of the highest caliber around the world who share our passion for diamonds, and we are excited to be partnering with established jewelers such as Musson, Percy Marks and Diamonds International. Australia is a natural extension for us having expanded extensively around the globe since launching in 2008. Anyone wearing Forevermark can be assured that each diamond is responsibly sourced, beautiful, rare and of the highest quality."

Forevermark has extended an existing partnership with Canada-based Forevermark diamantaire, Crossworks Manufacturing, to now include Australia. Crossworks  engaged Australia-based Storch & Co. to oversee local distribution.

Dylan Dix, the group executive at Crossworks Manufacturing,  said, "Crossworks is pleased to be part of the launch of Forevermark in Australia. This brand is about a promise that is given from mine to market and I am excited to be here with our partners De Beers and Storch & Co. to launch Forevermark with a retail partner who truly understands the rarity and beauty of a diamond purchase."

Daniel Storch, the managing director of Storch & Co., said, “We ’re incredibly excited about the launch of Forevermark in Australia. We are working with our Canadian partners and authorized jewelers to deliver the world's premium diamond brand. I believe Forevermark will provide a great benchmark for our industry.''

Forevermark diamonds are genuine, natural and untreated, and the promise that they have met  stringent criteria is evidenced by the unique inscription of an icon and individual number that identifies them as always uniquely yours. Invisible to the naked eye, this inscription is made using bespoke technology from the De Beers Group.
