Gemfields Announces Mila Kunis as Global Brand Ambassador
LOS ANGELES, March 1, 2013 – Gemfields, the world’s leading coloured gemstone producer, has announced that Mila Kunis is the company’s new brand ambassador and the face of its latest advertising campaign.
A natural fit for Gemfields, Mila was chosen for her natural beauty, versatility, intelligence and love of rare coloured gems.
Photographed by Mario Sorrenti and styled by Anastasia Barbieri, the campaign features a fresh-faced and modern Kunis wearing one-of-a-kind emerald and ruby jewelry created by six of Gemfields’ designer partners: Alexandra Mor, Amrapali, Dominic Jones, The Gem Palace, Sutra and Fabergé, the storied Russian brand acquired by Gemfields earlier this year.
The star recently returned from Africa, where she toured Gemfields’ Zambian mine, Kagem, which produces approximately 20 percent of the world’s emeralds.
Accompanied by Harebottle, Kunis learned about Gemfields’ environmentally-friendly mining practices and visited several Gemfields-sponsored community projects, including schools and a farming cooperative.
“While in Africa, I learned that the entire journey that each Gemfields stone takes is carefully considered and that the environment and the local communities where its mines are located are held in the highest regard,” said Kunis.
The global advertising program, running in publications including Vogue, Vanity Fair, Bazaar and W, is just one of many initiatives in a multi-pronged consumer campaign that Gemfields will roll out for 2013.
A newly revamped website will launch this spring, enabling consumers to learn about the brand’s initiatives and commitment to sustainability while receiving an in-depth education on coloured gemstones.
Gemfields will also release a large format book on emeralds in 2013. Finally, in March, the brand will debut a collection of exclusive coloured gemstone jewelry designed in collaboration with 37 international designers.
