Discover Love’s Defining Moments in the New Platinum Love Bands Campaign

Oct 23, 2023

Modern love has a different tale to tell, it’s not just about the initial rush of emotions. But about what lies beneath, it is about the dreams, and aspirations that young women have today. It is about love being able to overcome fears of a very real kind. The fear of compromise, having to live a life where one constantly feels constrained, and unable to truly be oneself. Young love today seeks an equal partnership that lets one thrive. A bond where individuality is embraced, where each one invests in the other’s dreams and there is a shared vision of the future. At its heart, it’s about the hope of finding someone who nurtures your growth, where a relationship is a haven for individuality and mutual respect.

While these are the aspirations of young couples today, our predominant cultural truth is still very much an arranged match. What has been added to it in the last few years is a period of courtship giving rise to the phenomenon of arranged-love marriages. And within this scenario, fears get pronounced. The expectations of perfection, the pressure to conform to ideals, and the need to have it all impeccably put together and well-orchestrated are most acute. Platinum Love Bands from Platinum Guild India within this context has always stood for a modern brand of love, one based on partnership, where values like mutual respect, equality, respect, and friendship flourish. Qualities much sought after in love today, that are truly rare, much like platinum.

The new campaign is one that takes this brand narrative forward. This season, Platinum Love Bands shines a spotlight on those defining moments that change the course of a relationship. Those that propel each other forward, allow each other to grow. The campaign is a multi-media campaign supported via TV, print, digital and social.

The film is directed by ace Bollywood director Nitesh Tiwari and celebrates moments​ of distinct transformation, that change the trajectory of where a couple is headed. It zeroes in on a pivotal instance in an arranged match, where a couple is still in the phase of understanding each other. Amidst palpable anxiety, he glimpses an unfamiliar facet of her, one that isn’t like the perfect side to her that he has seen so far. Instead of doubt or surprise, this revelation only deepens his affection for her. He comes to realise that he loves his partner for all that she is, liberating her from any pressure to always be perfect. She on the other hand in that instance realizes she has found a partner who will always encourage her to be unapologetically herself. He is the one who will back her dreams and be her loudest cheerleader. This defining moment marks their Platinum Day of Love. The film concludes with them marking this one-of-a-kind love with metal just as rare and precious – Platinum.

Nitesh Tiwari, director of the film, shared his thoughts on the film’s narrative, “It was a wonderful experience to work on such a refreshing thought that formed the underlying thread for the entire narrative.  It is simple to love the perfect side of your partner, but the true test of love lies in effortlessly committing to the less appealing aspects of your partner.  It was the unsaid lines that emerged as the true heroes leading the narrative towards the core thought and instantly building a connection with modern couples who resonate with the film’s overarching messaging. I am delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Platinum Love Bands and create a film instrumental in unveiling its new campaign.”

Speaking on the campaign Sujala Marits, Director- Consumer Marketing, PGI India said, “Relationships have evolved, becoming more individualistic than ever before, a sentiment echoed by the young women who make up our core audience. They seek partners who support them and let them flourish. This quest, however, has shifted the relationship landscape, with many modern depictions appearing transactional or even negotiated. While love has become hardwired, however, the dream of romance and magic still stays. We are platinum and wanted to approach this from the lens of a love that is truly rare, where the quest for acceptance of individuality didn’t mean the magic was lost. That’s what equal partnerships are based on. Finding a relationship based on shared dreams, strong support, mutual respect and acceptance in fact makes a love truly rare more so against the backdrop of arranged marriages. These are defining moments in a relationship that merit only platinum.”

The pressure of perfection is very real. Especially in an arranged marriage, where every moment happens in front of the families, and you really don’t have the opportunity to be yourself until much later. We felt where folks always have to portray the best version of themselves, platinum stands for that rare love that lets people just be themselves.” Vishnu Srivatsav, National Creative Director, 22feet Tribal Worldwide

Ushering a new chapter in the brand’s narrative, the campaign launches a new collection of Platinum Love Bands available across leading jewellery retail stores in India.
