A diamond has the indentation hardness of 1.25 million tons per square inch. That means if you placed the Eiffel Tower upside down on top of it, the precious gem would still be in the most perfect condition.

Diamonds were formed between 900 million and 4.25 billion years ago, roughly 150km to 200km below the Earth's surface.

Forevermark diamonds carry a unique inscription on the table facet that is 1/5000th of the thickness of a human hair. The inscription is the promise that the diamond is rare, beautiful, and responsibly sourced.
