Paul Minton Goes Mining with Forevermark!

_dsc7516-2

BC Clark is honored to announce that Paul Minton, Director of Operations, was recently named to the inaugural Forevermark Carat Club, an honor given to only the Top 17 Forevermark salespeople in the nation. As a result, Paul was awarded a very exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit Ontario’s first diamond mine.

On August 17th, the members of the 2016 Forevermark Carat Club embarked on an expedition to the De Beers Victor mine in Northern Ontario, Canada. While at the mine, they experienced the journey of a Forevermark diamond first-hand.

Club members toured the open-pit mine site and process plant, where more than 5.6 million carats have been recovered since the mine opened in 2008. The tour ended with a viewing of some of Victor’s rough diamonds, which are among the best quality diamonds in the world.

BC Clark is proud to employ the most highly educated diamond experts in the state, and Paul exemplifies our commitment to quality!

Following the trip to Victor mine, Paul was given the opportunity to fly to Sudbury, where he visited Forevermark Diamantaire Crossworks Manufacturing’s state-of-the-art cutting and polishing factory. Here, Paul and other Carat Club members experienced the next steps following the mine in the life of a Forevermark diamond.

Carat Club members also got to try their hands at the polishing wheel and feel what it takes to achieve the perfect combination of touch, angle, and rhythm to polish a facet on a diamond.

To say that we are honored to be partners with Forevermark would be an understatement. The DeBeers Group spans the globe in search of amazing diamonds, and we take great pride in being able to bring only the world’s finest diamonds to our customers, here in OKC.

We’ve talked a lot on the blog about the rigorous scrutiny and detail that goes into certifying a Forevermark diamond, and we feel confident that when you lay your eyes on one of these diamonds for the first time, you will immediately see the difference.

Forevermark has put together a beautiful video that carefully explains their “pursuit built on responsibility.” If you find this film to be as beautiful and informative as we do, then please come in and take a closer look at these mesmerizing diamonds, and let us help you take a piece of this amazing collection home.

Less than 1% of the world’s diamonds are worthy of the Forevermark distinction, and we are proud to closely align ourselves with their values.

These diamonds are truly unique, and when combined with our Gravity Collection, provide our customers a truly exclusive diamond jewelry experience.

Forevermark Diamonds: Week 6

We are proud of the fact that less than 1% of the world’s diamonds of worthy of carrying the Forevermark distinction. Experts at the Forevermark Diamond Institute carefully inspect every diamond, going beyond the technical qualities of the 4Cs to hand-pick only those diamonds that are truly beautiful. And as we’ve always promised here at BC Clark, we inspect these diamonds even further to ensure that we bring nothing but the best to our showrooms.

Every Forevermark diamond receives an inscription that represents our promise that it is beautiful, rare and responsibly sourced. Invisible to the naked eye, this inscription includes theForevermark icon and a unique number, making each Forevermark diamond as special as the promise made when it is given or received.

The Forevermark Promise

Option-13

forevermark-lock-up

The Forevermark Promise means not only that each De Beers Forevermark diamond is beautiful and rare but also that it has been responsibly sourced. The Forevermark responsible sourcing standards apply throughout the entire journey of a Forevermark diamond, ensuring that each Forevermark diamond can be given or worn with pride.

RESPONSIBLY SOURCED

It is an important element of the Forevermark promise that all diamonds are sourced from mines that not only comply with Forevermark’s strict political, financial, social and environmental requirements, but also actually benefit the communities in which they are operating.

Discover GRAVITY Forever, an exclusive collection of GRAVITY engagement rings featuring Forevermark diamonds, at GRAVITYForever.com

SELECTING MINING SOURCES

To assess this, Forevermark analyzes the impact on the local area, investigating areas such as health, education and training, investment in the local community infrastructure, and best practices regarding the local environment and ecology.

Countries where Forevermark diamonds are sourced continue to use revenues generated by diamonds to build a more prosperous future. Forevermark diamonds come from mines in countries such as Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Australia and Canada.

The Kimberley Process is an international certification program that was established in 2003 to prevent the sale of diamonds which are illegally traded to fund conflicts. While all BC Clark diamonds adhere to the industry standards and are certified to be “conflict free,” Forevermark’s sourcing standards have been developed to add assurance over and above the Kimberley Process, providing extra confidence.

THE UNIQUE INSCRIPTION
