Lazare Kaplan International announced the three finalists from its pre-holiday contest.
A panel of judges, including JCK senior editor Rob Bates, Ruth Batson from AGS, Helena Krodel from the Jewelry Information Center, and Denise O’Donoghue from Brides magazine, selected three finalists based on their heartfelt stories. Through Nov. 6, the public is invited to vote to determine which couple will win the Lazare Diamond Carlotta ring. People can vote on contest.lazarediamonds.com, as well as on the Lazare Diamond Facebook page.
The finalists are:
- John Sarver, Texas (Bachendorf’s in Plano, Texas)
- Tiffany Dover, Ark. (Roberson’s Fine Jewelry in Little Rock, Ark.)
- Allison Maliniak, Va. (Long Jewelers in Virginia Beach, Va.)
After the winner is chosen, the finalists will head to their local participating Lazare Diamond retailers where the grand prize will be awarded.
