“Despite the hype and marketing buzz around lab-grown diamonds, Millennials still want the real thing,” says Asaf Herskovitz, CEO GN Diamond. In fact, a recent survey revealed that Millennials would prefer to buy or receive natural diamond jewelry over clothing, electronics, cosmetics, and more. Gen Z consumers ranked naturally occurring diamonds as highly desirable as well.
Consumers young and old are increasingly drawn to authentic and organic items that tell a unique story. This is especially true for the 18-39 demographic, who are rejecting synthetic, factory-produced goods in favor of the qualities they value: uniqueness, rarity and sustainability.
Speak to Millennials’ Core Values
“To satisfy meticulous Millennials’ demands for natural diamonds that reflect their tastes and standards, emphasize what matters to them in your marketing and sales presentations,” advises Herskovitz. Here’s how you can directly address young consumers’ concerns and tie their core values into their purchase:
- Uniqueness. Natural diamonds are not perfect, and that’s ideal. “Millennials don’t want to see airbrushed models in their ads, because they see beauty in diversity and individual quirks,” said Herskovitz. Diamond Hunt, GN Diamond’s white-label online inventory search portal, provides high-res, 360-degree views of each loose diamond, allowing you to showcase the unique character and personality of inclusions and birthmarks.
- Rarity. Diamonds are valuable and desirable precisely because a finite number of them exist. “Millennials see lab-grown diamonds as common and replaceable – hardly the treasured symbol of lasting love they’re looking for,” Herskovitz said. GN Diamond offers an easy-to-use 4 Cs sales presentation that enables you to highlight exactly why each and every natural diamond is so precious.
- Sustainability. It takes a massive amount of energy to replicate the earth’s heat and pressure. “When talking to Millennials, you can combat the myth that lab-grown diamonds are eco-friendly by explaining that their carbon emissions are 3 times that of natural diamonds,” says Herskovitz. “Not only that, but when you stock your inventory from GN Diamond, you can assure customers that their purchase supports independent retailers like you.”
