Lab-grown diamond manufacturer Diamond Foundry has announced a contest that gives couples a chance to win a proposal worth up to $25,000—complete with a Diamond Foundry engagement ring.
The “Perfect Proposal” contest, which launched Aug. 13 and wraps up Aug. 31, invites U.S. residents to submit stories about how they met their significant other, what they love about them, and how they plan to propose.
The winner will design their own bespoke ring, worth up to $15,000, using the Diamond Foundry 3D Design Studio. Then, a team of producers will bring the proposal idea to life, “whether it’s a hot-air balloon over Niagara Falls or a float in their local parade,” valued up to $10,000, according to a company statement. That prize includes flights, hotels, space rentals, equipment, etc.
Additionally, the winning couple will be gifted with an original illustration by renowned artist Alessandra Olanow and have their personal love story written by best-selling romance author Sylvia Day—two very cool and unique prizes.
Two runners-up will also be chosen and will receive a Diamond Foundry ring worth up to $10,000, an original illustration by Olanow, and a personal love story written by Day.
There are no real losers in this contest—all entrants will receive a $300 gift card toward a Diamond Foundry engagement ring, “as a thank you for sharing their love stories,” according to the company.
The winner and runners-up will be contacted by Oct. 5, and the final proposal will be released in December.
San Francisco’s Diamond Foundry has been increasingly stepping out as a stand-alone brand in recent years. Its small but well curated in-house engagement ring collection is competitive in both price and design.
And the company has plunged headfirst into collaborations with buzz-y fine fashion jewelers. The Vogue-ready partnerships—with Pamela Love, Jennifer Fisher, Eva Fehren, Pili Restrepo and Taliana Varga, and Nak Armstrong, among others—have garnered plenty of enthusiastic press for the brand.
