A Jamais vs jamais

A Jamais vs jamais

 à jamais was new for me. jamais I only knew  as "never" But I see as an adjective it can be "for ever" ! Is it always used with à in this context?

so jamais = never

à jamais = for ever

I think of it this way. Jamais  has the sense of "ever"  so that "ne [verb] jamais"  means "not ever" or "never".

Je ne mange jamais de haricots verts. = I never eat green beans.

  à jamais  = "to ever" or "forever"  

à jamais gravés =forever engraved
