Manchester Jewellers hide £5K diamond ring: If you thought treasure hunts were a thing of the past, think again, as Manchester diamond experts are about to get the city searching for a very expensive gem.
To celebrate the opening of their new showroom in Manchester city centre, jewellers at Steven Stone have hidden a £5,000 diamond ring for one lucky winner to find.
With showrooms currently in London and Hale, Cheshire, Steven Stone is reopening its doors in Manchester city centre in November and will now be located on the first floor of St John’s Court.
To celebrate, a five-day treasure hunt is about to taking place, giving shoppers the chance to find – and keep – a one carat lab grown diamond with a retail value of £5,000.
From Monday, November 1 to Friday, November 5, at 12pm the team will reveal consecutive digits of the postcode location where the prize is hidden. For each day of the week, a new digit will be unveiled, along with a cryptic clue, in a bid to draw diamond hunters closer to the prize.
On the final day (Friday, November 5) those signed up to take part will receive an exclusive email with one final clue.
Whoever gets their hands on the diamond can have it set into a piece of jewellery worth up to £600 – whether it’s an engagement ring, pendant, or a special Christmas gift for a loved one.
Established in 1937, Steven Stone is led by Cheshire born brothers, Maxwell and Zack Stone, who have worked in the diamond industry for over 15 years.
Previously located at Hardman Square, the doors were closed in 2020 to make way for a more collaborative environment to allow customers and designers to create custom pieces of jewellery together.
Creative director, Maxwell Stone, said: “We are delighted to be opening our new city centre showroom – and what better way to celebrate than to give one lucky person the chance to seek this one-of-a-kind gem.”
Managing director, Zack Stone, added: “We’ve been working on the new showroom for over 12 months now, after facing unfortunate delays due to Covid-19, so we can’t wait to finally open our doors and spread the word with our exciting treasure hunt.
“Everyone deserves a diamond, so whether you want to pop the question to your partner or give your mum a gift she’ll never forget, this is your chance, so keep your eyes peeled next week.”
Treasure hunters should keep their eyes peeled for a Steven Stone gift box, sealed with a beautiful pink ribbon, containing instructions on how to claim the prize.
