Tanishq Jewelfie case study

The case study explores Tanishq delving into the stories behind people buying jewellery through a selfie campaign – Jewelfie on social media.

Creative Idea

Be it bridal jewellery, a piece one has inherited from his/her grandmother, the very first diamond jewellery or even the everyday imitation jewellery one might have picked up on a whim; every jewellery piece has a story.

Through Jewelfie, Tanishq invited people to celebrate their treasure trove of jewellery, relive the memories and share them with the world. 


Audiences were still confused about ‘how to enter’ even after reiterating the method of sending an entry that would result in losing a few entries even though the intent was very much there.

Missing out on a larger reach of the campaign with Jewelfies from private accounts.


This was primarily a social media-led campaign that was executed on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

On Instagram, a bunch of themes was launched. On stories, the brand reposted the organic entries that came in every day.

As for Facebook, Tanishq highlighted all the entries on an album and put up posts inviting people to participate in the contest.
