HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A new gold standard for Easter egg hunts is hatching in Houston, but with a modern twist and a dazzling ending for one lucky winner. Local jeweler and cutting house Uptown Diamond announced today its plans for a clue-driven Easter egg hunt with a prize valued at $30,000: a one-of-a-kind diamond ring designed by company founder Rick Antona. The ring, housed in a 18K gold hinged egg also crafted by Antona, is fashioned with palladium and showcases a 1.29 carat oval diamond surrounded by 1.27 total carat weight round diamonds.
“So often, Easter is focused on children’s activities,” said Antona. “I wanted adults in Houston to have a chance to embrace their inner child and be a part of the action.” As a father of two, Antona is no stranger to yearly Easter egg hunts, but was inspired to create a fresh, grown-up take designed to reward one clever participant.
The World’s Most Expensive Easter Egg Hunt contest begins today. Participants will follow a series of clues posted on the Uptown Diamond Facebook page to guess the location of the golden egg hunt, to be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 17. Each participant who answers at least one clue correctly will have the opportunity to hunt for the golden egg and diamond ring. No purchase is necessary; complete details and contest rules can be found at www.uptowndiamond.com/official-rules/. Participants must visit www.facebook.com/uptowndiamondandjewelry to enter the contest.
