Hi Everyone!
I'd say a little fun is always a good thing.
I only have one photo to show you tonight. For me, this contest is going to be fun just because we'll be looking at this amazing diamond.

The diamond is Fancy Yellow. The Diamond is VVS2. Those grades are from the GIA report.
Don't guess just yet, there's more photos, and possibly a video coming tomorrow.
I'll let you guys know when I've finished giving clues.

The contest will run until December 23rd Merry Merry!

The closest 3 guesses will win gift certificates for use on any item in our store.  The size of your gift certificate will vary based on purchase size.
If you are spending up to $1000, the certificate is good for $100. From $1001-$2000 it's $150.
If the purchase is between $2000-$5000 it's good for $250.
$5001 and up it's worth $500

The contest is open to one and all - including moderators should they choose to enter.

I have a copy of the GIA report here and will publish photos of when the contest is over.
