Tacori recently announced the fourth winner of its Love Tacori contest, a campaign that asks fans to try on Tacori jewelry in-store and share their experience on social media for a chance to win $20,000 in jewelry.

The most recent winner is the newly engaged (with a Tacori ring!) Lindsay Ross of Perrysburg, Ohio, who visited C Sterling Jewelers. “I absolutely love the comfort and quality Tacori brings,” said Ross in a press release. “My fiancé was shopping around for rings and fell in love with what Tacori has to offer. He made the best purchase ever, and I’m in love with his choice!”
