They say diamonds are a girl’s best friends but who are diamonds’ best friends? Looking at trend reports and market analytics, K-pop idols seem to hold that position. The love affair of K-pop stars and luxury isn’t a new bloom; a collaboration between the two gigantic industries has been on the horizon, and they did not disappoint. Brands like Fred, Bvlgari, Cartier, and Tiffany & Co. have tapped into the global appeal of K-Pop stars, having some of the biggest names as their brand ambassadors and house friends.

Jin has recently finished his military services and is now back to work in full force. Given the fact that he is part of one the biggest K-pop groups on the planet right now, everyone saw a luxury collaboration coming. On July 8, Fred Jewellery announced Jin as its new Global Brand Ambassador.

In an Instagram post, the French house wrote, “Maison FRED is pleased to announce its new Global Brand Ambassador: Jin of 21st-century pop icons BTS. Both considerate and committed, with a perpetual smile and a great sense of humour, the eternal lover of life perfectly embodies the spirit of Maison FRED. His collaboration with The Sunshine Jeweller promises to shine with a unique sparkle.”

Cartier didn’t only manage to bag one but three biggest K-pop stars at the moment. In September 2020, BLACKPINK’s Jisoo was appointed as the main model of Cartier’s Pasha de Cartier. And in 2022, Cartier announced her as their global brand ambassador, joining the brand’s family which was later joined by Got7 star Jackson Wang in 2021.

One of the the most impactful collaboration on the list. On July 19 2023, French luxury jewellery house announced BTS singer V (Taehyung) as its newest global brand ambassador. And as soon as the brand dropped V’s campaign wearing Cartier’s iconic Panthère de Cartier necklace, made of white gold, diamonds, onyx, and emeralds, it got sold out within minutes while crashing the website.

 Rosé and Jimin: Tiffany & Co.

Giving Cartier a tough competition, we have Tiffany & Co. which has two of the most popular names as its ambassadors. On April 21, 2021, American label onboarded BLACKPINK star RosĂ© who made her campaign debut with the Tiffany HardWear digital campaign. The streak followed in March 2023, when the brand bagged BTS’ Jimin as its newest global ambassador. Jimin is popularly hailed as the ‘IT’ boy by the fans and is known for his chic style and worldwide influence.
