Forevermark is a diamond company and subsidiary of De Beers Group. Forevermark currently operates in China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, and the United States. Forevermark is present in 32 markets in total across Europe, Asia, Australia, and the United States, and has over 2,400 outlets.
Richard Jenkins, The Diamond Guru shares some thoughts about Forevermark in his blog: "When I look at Forevermark jewelry, I cannot help but think, ‘what a shame’. If Forevermark utilised independently graded diamonds, their engagement rings and bridal jewelry would be some of the most beautiful out there. Unfortunately, it is not a flaw that can be overlooked, as it is the most important element in a diamond engagement ring. The modern diamond buyer is an informed buyer – the increased information and rise of online diamond vendors has shone an unflattering light on the traditional jewelry store. If you want a stunning engagement ring, a high-quality diamond is of paramount importance."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Forevermark full-time for more than a year Cons: Departments have no idea what the other departments are doing and they are all tired in together. Too many meetings but no forward movement. Fairly new employees with no background of the business i.e new director, clueless. Terrible office set up, cubicles are open with absolutely no privacy, terrible. Old employees are nervous that new folks will take their jobs....so everybody's into everybody's business. Lots of gossip. Not a professional atmosphere. Some women actually where shortie shorts to work. Don't bather talking to HR..... A lot of weird people, stay clear"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Forevermark full-time Cons: I wanted to transfer to a new territory and instead they hire someone else. All management has blonde hair and blue eyes you will not get promoted or considered for a promotion unless you are a token, even if you don't have experience and there a couple of those in the U.S Office. Many internal groups and favorites. They don't care about you nor your efforts"
Former Employee - Operations Assistant says"I worked at Forevermark full-time for more than a year Cons: Poor progression prospects Snobbish culture which is dominated by the privately educated Unqualified/inexperienced management who are undynamic and focused on fighting the battles of the last decade Genuinely no communication from senior management about the strategic direction the firm was going in."
