Ring holds big hopes

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

LO­CAL jew­ellery store Sock­lich & Co is plan­ning to use the sale of a spe­cial ring to help the Starlight Foun­da­tion make wishes come true.

For­mer Princess Mar­garet Hos­pi­tal pa­tient Rani (16) won the Soklich & Co ring de­sign com­pe­ti­tion.

The de­sign was hand-crafted into a yel­low di­a­mond and tan­zan­ite ring set in 18ct white gold.

Soklich & Co sales man­ager Terry Hunt said po­ten­tial buy­ers should con­sider how many wishes the Foun­da­tion could grant with the sale of the ring.

“At the end of the day, we want as much money as we can get for Starlight,” he said.

“A hun­dred per cent of the money for the ring will go to them,” he said.

“We fig­ure wishes cost on av­er­age $6500 so we think we should be get­ting two or three wishes for this beau­ti­ful ring.”

While the de­sign boasts over 100 vis­i­ble di­a­monds, the jewellers hope the mys­tery be­hind a se­cret di­a­mond would en­tice a gen­er­ous buyer.

Mr Hunt said the de­sign in­cor­po­rated a spe­cial sur­prise di­a­mond that only the wearer of the ring would be able to find.

“Only the wearer will know there’s a se­cret yel­low di­a­mond in the ring,” he said. “Di­a­monds are sup­posed to pro­vide good karma.”
