(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.

Want More “Me” Time? Wilkerson Will Get You There!

It was time. Teri Allen and her brother, Nick Pavlich, Jr., had been at the helm of Dearborn Jewelers of Plymouth in Plymouth, Mich., for decades. Their father, Nick Pavlich, Sr., had founded the store in 1950, but after so many wonderful years helping families around Michigan celebrate their most important moments, it was time to get some “moments” of their own. Teri says Wilkerson was the logical choice to run their retirement sale. “They’re the only company that specializes in closing jewelry stores,” she says. During the sale, Teri says a highlight was seeing so many generations of customers who wanted to buy “that one last piece of jewelry from us.” Would she recommend Wilkerson? Absolutely. “There is no way that I would have been able to do this by myself.”
