“Jewelers of America’s primary mission is to maintain consumer confidence for jewelry. One important aspect of that mission is to ensure fine jewelry is in front of consumers throughout the year,” Gizzi said in a press release about the campaign.
In another push to promote fine jewelry, JA launched the “Make Mom Shine” sweepstakes on Instagram.
The contest, sponsored by Jewelers Mutual Group, ran from April 28 to May 1 and then again from May 2-5.
Shoppers entered to win two GiGi Ferranti blue sapphire bracelets or two Brevani amethyst necklaces, one for the winner, and one for a special mother figure in their life.
“These media tours and sweepstakes allow JA to reach a wide number of consumers and encourage them to buy fine jewelry from a Jewelers of America member retailer,” said Gizzi.
