Forever Companies – Franklin, WI
We are Forever Companies, and we are an extremely fast-growing and dynamic technology and eCommerce business centered in the jewelry and fashion marketplace.
Our mission is to disrupt the $70 billion dollar legacy mined diamond and precious gemstone industry with our lab-created diamond and jewelry products and to become the dominant and most valuable company in that expanding and exciting new world. The purpose of our mission is to help improve the environment by ending the practice of destructive diamond and gem mining as well as end the ethical concerns of “blood” or conflict diamonds.
Our three brands, Diamond Nexus, 12FIFTEEN Diamonds, and Forever Artisans, are re-inventing the jewelry industry and are supported by our vertically integrated internal business operations which span manufacturing, fulfillment, customer care, marketing, and technology development.
The Job: Our skilled Bench Jewelers are the heart and soul of our dynamic jewelry manufacturing operation. We are busy creating one of the most state-of-the-art and technologically advanced operations in the world and we are actively researching and investing in the latest equipment and techniques. You will be a part of that development and you will work with a highly integrated team to hit our quality and production goals.
Forever Companies is growing and scaling extremely fast. Every month the volume goes up. Our goal is to continue to develop and build a cutting-edge jewelry manufacturing operation that provides world-class quality, speed, and efficiency. We like to control our own destiny and our customers’ experience and we don’t like to outsource any critical functions. Our challenge is to build a team that can solve the problems of our fast-growing production environment and achieves sustainable excellence.
Our plan is to grow fast and dominate the direct-to-consumer eCommerce lab diamond space while controlling every major aspect that affects the customer experience internally. As we execute that plan there are tremendous opportunities to grow with the company if you have the talent and desire. We are dedicated to helping our people grow and part of how we measure the company’s success is by how we can empower the success of our people. We are committed to working on the training and development of our internal jewelry staff.
