FOREVERMARK LAUNCHES IN INDONESIA
De Beers Group today announced that its Forevermark diamond brand has launched in Indonesia as it continues on its global growth trajectory.
For the market launch Forevermark is partnering with Indonesia’s premier jewellery company, Central Mega Kencana (CMK), which will sell Forevermark in its leading retail brands, Frank & Co., The Palace and Miss Mondial. Forevermark will initially be sold in 12 stores in the CMK network in the Jakarta region, with plans to expand further in the near future.
The official launch event took place on 11 April 2018 at Plaza Senayan in Jakarta, and was marked with a showcasing of Forevermark red carpet jewellery, as well as an exhibition highlighting the brand’s key message: diamonds that are beautiful, rare and responsibly sourced.
The Indonesia launch means Forevermark will now be available in 26 markets globally.
Stephen Lussier, Chief Executive, Forevermark, said: “We are delighted to be launching Forevermark in the fast-growing Indonesian jewellery market, with our market-leading partner CMK. Forevermark’s brand promise continues to resonate very strongly across the world, and we look forward to exploring the potential for further new market launches as the brand goes from strength to strength.”
Stefanus Lo, CEO of CMK, said: “Carrying the Forevermark brand through our licensee partnership will introduce an exciting new product opportunity for diamond lovers in Indonesia, while also broadening consumer interest in the diamond category as a whole. Our goal is to deliver the very best quality product in whatever we sell to our customers, meaning that a partnership with Forevermark is the perfect match for us.”

FOREVERMARK DIAMONDS BEYOND the 4Cs
Forevermark goes beyond the standard 4Cs to select diamonds that are genuine, natural and untreated. Forevermark diamonds are cut and polished by master craftsmen to reveal their ultimate beauty and natural brilliance.
FOREVERMARK DIAMONDS ARE RARE
Less than one percent of the world’s diamonds are worthy of the Forevermark inscription.
FOREVERMARK DIAMONDS ARE RESPONSIBLY SOURCED
Each Forevermark diamond is responsibly sourced and embodies our principles of integrity, striving to create opportunities for women and our dedication to protection of the natural world. The inscription is an assurance of the physical integrity of our diamonds throughout their journey, as well as the conscientious integrity with which we run our business.
FOREVERMARK INSCRIPTION & GRADING
Each Forevermark diamond is inscribed with an icon and individual number as an assurance that it has met Forevermark’s standards of beauty and rarity and that it is responsibly sourced.
