Shimansky Jewellers: Ledge escape

It should have been Shimansky.

To dramatise the importance of proposing with the right ring, that being a Shimansky ring, we show what could happen if the wrong ring was offered.

I was going to say the same thing. If I can't get a print ad without it having to be explained to me then it isn't working.

I ask for a short description, which can be provided on will. So it's just for us in the industry. The ad needs to evaluated without the description.

I'm not too sure about this one. Somehow, it makes a mockery of the emotions. After all, isn't love blind? The ring or diamond is nothing but a symbol. It's the proposal that matters, not the ring.

I saw this "It should've been" approach done so many times before. Surely we should've been moving on from it now?

And yeh, the photo is a bit half bake lah.
