As a core element of the partnership, Nyong’o will support De Beers’ Building Forever commitment, which aims to advance women and girls where its diamonds are discovered.

De Beers will work with Nyong’o in pursuit of the brand’s public goals to engage 10,000 girls in STEM, support 10,000 women entrepreneurs, and invest at least $10 million across southern Africa to achieve these goals by 2030.

“This campaign brings to life the transformative power that I feel when I wear De Beers’ diamond creations, and the pride in knowing where they come from and the good they do," Lupita Nyong’o said in the news release. "My partnership with De Beers allows me to extend my advocacy for women and girls around the world."

“This campaign represents a number of firsts for the De Beers brand – the first time we’ve partnered with a global ambassador, the first time we’ve depicted the full breadth and scope of the brand from diamond discovery to finished jewelery, and the first time we’ve showcased a rough diamond in a campaign. It’s a powerful new focus for De Beers that represents source, discovery, potential and authenticity, while driving desire for De Beers natural diamonds.” said Marc Jacheet, De Beers CEO Brands, in the news release.

The De Beers Where It Begins campaign launches globally with integrated media activations across multiple touchpoints on November 3.
