The Platinum Guild India has launched its new initiative ‘Season of Hope’ on platinum jewellery that pans out across 1,200 stores in India and is backed by a robust communication plan. It is led by a new film, supported by print, digital, and PR across markets to ensure high reach and frequency.

It is drawn from the insight that the pause to the hustle of everyday activities, the constraints, restraints and challenges on most of the things that we actually took for granted has meant a re-evaluation of our priorities and new realisations for many. Many have arrived at a point of clarity on the values that count, the relationships that hold ground and are precious to them, the gestures that can carry one through and have brought in some joy in the midst of tough times.

The pandemic has been particularly harsh on certain marginalised sections of our community such as the migrant workers. Platinum Guild India has joined hands with Oxfam India to assist 4,500 families, approximately 22,500 individuals over a period of three months in states where the impact has been the harshest such as West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkand and Odissa, offering help in the form of support for food, sanitation essentials and non-good essentials too. 


The film for the Season of Hope campaign focuses on the importance of acknowledging the relationships that have indeed stood the test of times. It opens with two sisters discussing how the younger one’s work from home phase has concluded and embracing the unlock she is ready to leave home, to return to her workplace in another city. But through the lockdown and time spent together, she has realised that what she is about to do is what she has done all along. Leave her parents in the care of her elder sister who has willingly stayed home all along, taking up this responsibility — so that her younger sibling can find the wings to fly, the wind to soar. The younger one realises that she has perhaps never fully appreciated the magnitude of what her sister has so quietly and willingly done all these years. It's all the quiet reflections locked in at home that has really propelled her to get out there and voice what has been unspoken for so long.

As the narrative progresses, the younger girl presents her older sibling with an elegant platinum bracelet as an expression of immense gratitude and appreciation for all the times she played the supporting role in helping her realise her dreams. 


Sujala Martis, Consumer Marketing Director, PGI India, said, “The lockdown has been a period of re-evaluation for all at varying degrees. We have all examined and arrived at our own versions of what truly matters. Whether it's our value system, or our relationships, our needs and wants, or how we can play a stronger role in alleviating so much of what the world is going through. It is only positive action and hope that is taking us to the next. Now more than ever it’s important for brands and businesses to put action behind their purpose and that is exactly what we wanted to do. Hence the partnership with Oxfam to help migrant workers in some way.” 

The campaign has been conceptualised and executed by Famous Innovations. Raj Kamble, Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Famous Innovations, said, “These last few months have been dark but have also given all of us time for introspection and realisation. It has made us thankful for lots of people and things we took for granted. Our campaign highlights one such moment of realisation between two sisters, weaving in the role of the brand as a symbol of gratitude. Through this and other upcoming campaigns, we aim to highlight the positive side of this difficult time and shine hope for our consumers. Platinum, with its uplifting emotional associations, is in a unique position to do so.”


Season of Hope will act as a catalyst building on positive sentiment during this period. It will straddle all three platinum jewellery categories, Platinum Days of Love — the couple band offering, Men of Platinum — the offering for men and Evara — placed in the women’s segment.
