Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group Limited (“Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group”, “the Group” or “the Company”; SEHK stock code: 1929), a Hong Kong Main Board listed company with over 90 years of heritage, is delighted to announce an exclusive strategic partnership with The Natural Diamond Council (NDC) today to advocate the “Natural Diamonds Dream” and introduce the Chinese consumers, especially the younger generation, to the timeless beauty of natural diamonds through the use of diverse communication channels and accessible digital content, as well as the provision of professional training resources.
The partnership aims to convey the value of natural diamonds to Chinese consumers and enhance their confidence and desire for natural diamonds. As the first and exclusive strategic retail partner of the Natural Diamond Council in Mainland China, Chow Tai Fook will fully support the natural diamond-related promotional and educational campaigns launched by the Natural Diamond Council in Mainland 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 its preciousness, rarity, and uniqueness. While inviting consumers into the spectacular world of natural diamonds, the partnership will further bring profound and positive impact to the natural diamond jewellery industry.
"One of our key priorities this year is to work closely with natural diamond retailers to protect and convey the authentic and unique beauty of natural diamonds together," said David Kellie, CEO of the Natural Diamond Council. "Chow Tai Fook is a leading enterprise in Mainland China's jewellery industry with massive influence. By joining hands with Chow Tai Fook in the Mainland China market, we hope to ignite the ‘Natural Diamonds Dream’ among young consumers.”
"We are honoured to partner with the Natural Diamond Council and promote the ‘Natural Diamonds Dream’ hand in hand,” said Chan Sai-Cheong, Managing Director, Mainland China of Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group. “Over the years, Chow Tai Fook has established an extensive retail network in the Greater China region and a professional team of sales experts to help us communicate the values and significance of natural diamonds, and boost the desirability and consumer confidence in these natural gifts. I am confident that this partnership will solidify the values of and forge consumers’ desire for natural diamonds. It will also help young consumers nurture an emotional connection with and recognise the symbolism of natural diamonds, making them their preferred choice for jewellery."
"Since our renaming in 2020, we have developed a diverse portfolio of digital content for natural diamonds, attracting over 5,000,000 consumers to our platforms every month. Through this strategic partnership, we would like to leverage Chow Tai Fook’s extensive sales network, stellar reputation, and strong support to reach a much wider consumer community even more quickly and deeply through our content. As consumers gain a better understanding of the significance and values of natural diamonds, it will fuel the future growth of the natural diamond industry," noted Mabel Wong McCormick, Managing Director of the Natural Diamond Council for Greater China.
Consumers’ fondness for natural diamonds is growing across the globe. Therefore, actively listening and responding to consumer needs, and flexibly adapting the messages and business models to nurture a long-lasting emotional connection with consumers will be the key to the sustainable growth of the diamond jewellery industry.
The Natural Diamond Council looks forward to collaborating even more closely with the industry in the future to promote the true value and emotional symbolism of natural diamonds to consumers. By taking the awareness of and desire for natural diamonds among Chinese millennial consumers to the next level, the Natural Diamond Council and industry players will take an important step towards the “Natural Diamonds Dream” and drive the rapid growth of the natural diamond industry together.
