What jewellery taught me about love
The Forevermark Icon Collection invites you to celebrate joy every day
As someone who shies away from ostentation, my entire jewellery collection consisted of one white gold bracelet with a Forevermark diamond that I wore every day because my sister bought it for me.
When I tore open the delicate wrapping paper then, I was ecstatic to receive my first real diamond. But now that my sister and I are separated by distance, I look at my wrist and realise the bracelet is more than just jewellery. It carries a world of sentiment and history, it was something she had bought just for me from her first salary.
Feeling its imperceptible weight on my wrist is a daily reminder that despite loud quarrels over whose turn it is to do the dishes or take the dog for a walk, we are always there for each other. Jewellery has that power, to capture emotions and set them in stone, so when you catch that diamond glinting in the sun, it sparks your memory and warms your heart.
And it doesn’t have to be something ostentatious that you only get out from the bank locker when a wedding is around the corner. We can create our own everyday mood lifters in beautiful and wearable pieces that make us feel good on a daily basis. I discovered that in the Forevermark Icon Collection, when I was looking for something special to give my sister in return (hey, better late than never).
Inspired by the brand’s globally recognised icon, which was originally designed to capture the romance and brilliance of a starry South African night sky, combined with the outline of a diamond.
There’s a celestial sparkle in each of the Forevermark Icon pieces that will carry special meaning for you.
The Forevermark Icon Collection Bypass Enamel Bangle is a daily reminder that like a diamond, we have the strength to withstand any pressures.
Stack that with the Open Pave bangle in mixed white and rose gold — because, like most strong relationships, opposites do attract.
I know my sister will see our timeless bond reflected in the classic appeal of the Forevermark Icon Collection pendant. It’s versatile enough for her to style with her entire wardrobe, so she can keep me close even if we don’t get to see each other as often as we’d like.
And while I was exploring the Collection, I couldn’t resist splurging on a Halo Bracelet for myself. It’s a reminder to myself to look for the diamond lining in every situation, no matter what life throws my way.
