(PRESS RELEASE) NEENAH, WI — Protecting jewelry and the memories jewelry represents for over 107 years has made Jewelers Mutual Insurance Group a little obsessed.

This (very healthy) jewelry obsession is featured in the company’s latest advertising campaign, “Jewelry Obsessed,” developed with Chicago-based creative agency Laughlin Constable, which takes a satirical journey into the reality of jewelry infatuation.

Among the campaign’s bevy of lovable characters, “Sarah,” a newly engaged woman, would prefer her engagement ring be front and center as a bridesmaid if it were socially acceptable. Her fiancé “Kevin,” who has evolved from geeking out about dinosaurs to memorizing diamond specs, finds it harder than he expected to part with the ring — even when giving it to his beloved.

“We get it. We love jewelry so much, we have a polisher for our polisher. We insure jewelry, and only jewelry. And that’s why people like Kevin trust us with theirs,” the 30-second commercial says.

While Jewelers Mutual’s obsession is protecting jewelry, the premise for the “Jewelry Obsessed” campaign came straight from the company’s consumer focus groups who noted the process of shopping for engagement rings and other jewelry takes time, attention, and can become an obsession. More importantly, the jewelry pieces they settle on become their ultimate obsession.

“Not surprisingly, our research shows most consumers are obsessed with their jewelry because of the emotional events their pieces represent, such as marriage, a special trip or a promotion,” said Ken Murray, Jewelers Mutual vice president of digital and marketing. “But we also found that many jewelry wearers are simply not aware personal jewelry insurance exists, or that their homeowners’ or renters’ policies typically do not provide effective coverage.

“With this campaign, we are, in a fun, whimsical and relatable way, sharing consumers’ obsession with jewelry, because insuring jewelry is all we do.”

The annual campaign launched in January 2020 for consumers with the jewelry trade coming in early spring. It includes a full digital campaign, social, and select print.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
