The Jewelry Information Center (JIC) launched its third annual “Ultimate Proposal Contest” at www.JIC.org/contest, which is a nationwide search for the ultimate proposal story. This year the grand prize includes a Sandals Resorts Caribbean vacation as well as platinum jewelry.
Contestants enter their engagement proposal stories along with a photo or video. Submissions are accepted through April 10 at noon EDT. From that stage, through May 8, the public can review submissions and vote for a favorite entry. The 20 entries that receive the most votes will move into a final judging round. The couple who submits the winning story will receive a five-day, four-night Sandals Resorts ”Luxury Included®” Caribbean vacation courtesy of The Knot and Sandals Resorts. The grand prize also includes a platinum and diamond necklace courtesy of Platinum Guild International USA.
“The Ultimate Proposal Contest showcases incredible creativity and passion. Much like the engagement ring itself, every engagement embodies commitment and promise,” said Amanda Gizzi, the spokesperson for JIC. “After last year’s successful contest, the bar has been raised and this year’s contest will undoubtedly have many stories worthy of the ultimate proposal title.”
There are 90 jewelry retailers – all members of Jewelers of America — participating in JIC’s Ultimate Proposal Contest. Title sponsors include Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company; Platinum Guild International USA and The Knot.
