Mumbai: The Diamond Producers Association (DPA), an international alliance of the world’s leading diamond mining companies launched their integrated marketing campaign ‘Real is Rare. Real is a Diamond’ in India.
Created & executed by BBH India, the campaign focuses on celebrating the precious moments which mark the journey of a relationship between couples.
This campaign marks the first ever category marketing initiative in the diamond industry since a decade.
Inspired by real stories, the ‘Real is Rare. Real is a Diamond’ campaign has recreated such moments of intimacy and bonding which couples can relate to and recognise as milestones.
Sharing his thoughts on the launch, Jean-Marc Lieberherr, CEO, Diamond Producers Association, said, “We are thrilled to announce the ‘Real is Rare. Real is a Diamond’ campaign which links diamonds to the precious moments between young Indian couples. The announcement is also to work closely within thesector to revitalize category marketing, focusing on the younger generation and catering to their specific needs and aspirations”.
Sharing her thoughts on the launch, Richa Singh, Managing Director, Diamond Producers Association, India, said, “Real is Rare. Real is a Diamond focuses on a diamond’s billion-year old natural heritage and equates that with what is most authentic and real in our lives. The campaign expresses the real and rare moments between couples and beautifully connects it to the unique quality of diamonds”.
Commenting on the experience creating the campaign film, Subhash Kamath, CEO and Managing Partner, BBH India, said, “Our mandate was to reinterpret the idea of “Real is Rare” for the Indian market, and root it in a cultural truth. We’re not trying to promote any particular brand here, but make people see diamonds in a whole new light. It’s a long term goal and we’re thrilled to be partnering the DPA on this journey”.
The ‘Real is Rare’ platform aims to connect with the younger generation in a personal and emotionally relevant way, while emphasising that diamonds are a symbolic expression of emotional commitment. It is a story that is real, that is theirs and that is rare, with the diamond being a true symbol of what the relationship is all about.
The campaign has been launched through an integrated marketing communications mix of TV, cinema, digital, PR, mobile and social media. The DPA will also be engaging with the entire diamond and jewellery community to bring this to life.
