He explained that over the next few months, the organization will work closely with Mother New York to develop what he calls a “powerful marketing strategy.”

We were impressed with Mother New York’s deep understanding of modern culture and with the very innovative and impactful work they’ve produced for important lifestyle brands that matter to millennials,” said DPA board members and Alrosa vice president Andrey Polyakov.

The DPA’s objectives include enhancing consumer demand for and confidence in diamonds, including through joint category marketing initiatives.
