Win a £2,000 replica of the royal engagement ring

A £2,000 replica of royal bride-to-be Kate Middleton’s engagement ring can be won by a Lancashire Evening Post reader.

The ring has been hand-made by David Jones Goldsmiths and Jewellers to commemorate her forthcoming marriage to Prince William - and it is yours to win.

Simply answer the three questions on page four of Thursday’s Lancashire Evening Post and send off the coupon to the address shown for the chance to win.

The coupon will also appear in the LEP every day until April 21.

Based at Friargate in Preston city centre, David Jones Goldsmiths and Jewellers is established for 35 years and specialises in creating bespoke diamond engagement and wedding rings, alongside other jewellery.

Modelled on the ring given to Princess Diana by HRH Prince of Wales, the ring was crafted at its in-store workshop and the 18ct yellow gold/white gold setting holds an oval sapphire and 14 brilliant cut diamonds.

David Jones, owner of the jewellers, said: “The ring has been entirely handmade and set in the store and bears the unique DJ (David Jones) hallmark alongside the official 18ct gold hallmark and date stamp.”

“The clarity of the sapphire is flawless. You can see from the colour of the stone that it is of high quality and the diamonds set it off perfectly.”

David caters for not only the people of Preston but for many across the North West.

“Customers usually find the store by recommendations and tend to stay loyal customers for many years – we’ve helped two and sometimes three generations of families find their perfect fit.”

The ring is taking pride of place in an elaborate window display at the jewellers.

Closing date for entries is April 28 2011.
