Specialized insurer receives award for “Jewelry Obsessed Campaign”

For the past 62 years, the IMCA (Insurance Marketing Communications Association) has recognized the best work in insurance marketing and communications. Jewelers Mutual Group is excited to accept the 2020 Award of Excellence for their “Jewelry Obsessed” marketing campaign.

The campaign was a joint effort from Jewelers Mutual and Chicago-based advertising firm, Laughlin Constable. The campaign’s goal was to continue to drive awareness of Jewelers Mutual’s Personal Lines insurance.

The premise for the “Jewelry Obsessed” campaign was inspired by consumer focus groups, where not surprisingly, research showed that most consumers are obsessed with their jewelry because of the emotional events their pieces represent, such as marriage, a special trip or a promotion. They’ve obsessed over every detail when they researched and purchased these pieces and they continue to play a highly emotional role in their lives.

When it comes to insurance for their jewelry, however, consumers have spent very little time considering options. More often than not, they anticipate their jewelry is automatically covered on their existing homeowners insurance policy. The “Jewelry Obsessed” campaign highlights this disparity and drives home that Jewelers Mutual, a specialized insurer in the industry for over 100 years, is the right solution for them.

“We are honored to be recognized by IMCA for our effective and innovative work done with the 'Jewelry Obsessed' campaign,” said Tyler Krowiorz, Brand Marketing Manager at Jewelers Mutual. “Jewelry insurance is about more than a financial investment. It’s about protecting the stories behind these jewelry pieces. We wanted to – in a fun and slightly off-center way, show how we share in this jewelry obsession with consumers. Insuring jewelry is all we do and have done since 1913, and to us that defines obsession.”
