The Natural Diamond Council (NDC) has announced an exclusive strategic partnership with Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group (Chow Tai Fook), in the Greater China region, to advocate the “Natural Diamonds Dream” to Chinese consumers, especially the younger generation, through diverse communication channels and accessible digital content, along with professional training resources.
The partnership aims to convey the value and beauty of timeless natural diamonds to Chinese consumers and enhance their confidence and desire for natural diamonds. As the first and exclusive strategic retail partner of the NDC in China, Chow Tai Fook will fully support the natural diamond-related promotional and educational campaigns launched by the NDC in China. The Natural Diamond Council will also step up its support in different areas, including advertising assets, digital assets, social media content and search engine marketing, to fully reveal the core values and emotional significance of natural diamonds underlined by their preciousness, rarity, and uniqueness. While inviting consumers into this spectacular world, the partnership will further bring profound and positive impact to the natural diamond jewellery industry.
“One of our key priorities is to work closely with natural diamond retailers to accelerate the market growth and convey the ethical and unique beauty of natural diamonds together,” said David Kellie, CEO of the Natural Diamond Council.
“Chow Tai Fook is the leader in China’s jewellery industry. By joining hands with Chow Tai Fook in the China market, we will expand the reach of the ‘Natural Diamonds Dream’ among young consumers. Going forward we will extend similar initiatives in other markets, including similar synergistic partnerships in India and the Middle East.’’
