Forevermark US gave back to the Long Island Sound community through a waterfront cleanup initiative. Together with local environmental education non-profit SoundWaters, volunteers from Forevermark US and staff from four Forevermark authorized jewellers removed 246 pounds of trash from Cove Island Park in Stamford, Connecticut.

Forevermark’s US headquarters are based in Stamford. As part of The De Beers Group of Companies, Forevermark is committed to giving back to the communities in which it operates.

Globally, Forevermark is committed to the preservation and protection of habitats, their species and the wider natural world, as well as furthering education in countries where its diamonds originate. For every acre of land used for mining by De Beers, five acres are dedicated to the conservation of nature, building thriving ecosystems with healthy populations of native wild animals and plants.

SoundWaters was founded in 1989 with the mission to protect the Long Island Sound through education and action. The local non-profit educates over 28,000 students of all ages from Connecticut and New York annually.

SoundWaters will also be the beneficiary of 10 per cent of proceeds from an upcoming Forevermark shopping event, held on Wednesday October 19th, 2016 at Forevermark Fairfield County Jewelers from 6:00-9:00 pm. Guests will be able to enter for a chance to win $2,500 towards their next Forevermark purchase by posting a photo using #ForevermarkGivesBack. Participating jewelers include:
