Renowned Putnam & Putnam florists Darroch and Michael Putnam are two of the “brilliant creators” showing Kwiat jewels in a modern light in the brand’s new holiday campaign.
New York—For Kwiat’s first on-model campaign in its 111-year history, the jewelry brand chose to highlight extraordinary individuals.

“Brilliant Creators,” which launches today on Kwiat’s website and social media platforms, features a diverse group of young leaders making an impact in their respective fields, from philanthropy to art, fashion, science and entrepreneurship.

The campaign, which also fronts Kwiat’s annual “Diamond Book” holiday catalog, shows individuals such as Georgie Badiel, former Miss Africa and leader of her eponymous foundation bringing clean drinking water to West Africa; world-renowned Putnam & Putnam florists Darroch and Michael Putnam; and Dr. Elizabeth Comen, an oncologist and breast cancer researcher at New York’s Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital.
