We’ve been saying ‘I do’ with wedding rings for more than 6,000 years – and in the U.S alone some 17,000 tonnes of gold are melted to make this traditional marriage token every year.
Now one Northampton jeweller is giving you the chance to run rings around your special day by giving away a pair of wedding bands worth £1000 in a once-in-a-lifetime competition.
Michael Jones Jeweller, which has shops in Northampton and Banbury, is offering one lucky keyworker couple the chance to win a pair of rings as part of the Delapré Abbey ‘Wedding with Thanks’ competition.
The giveaway has been organised to thank and celebrate carers, key and essential workers in Northamptonshire who have gone above and beyond during the coronavirus crisis. The fantastic prize includes everything from wedding cake and stationery to hair styling for the bride and a DJ.
The independent cooperative, which has been part of the town since 1919, is well known for its range of 18 carat gold and Portfolio of Fine Diamonds’ jewellery – as well as being a watch centre for major brands such as Rolex, Omega and Breitling.
And the jewellers, which has shops on Gold Street and at the Grosvenor Centre, is no stranger to community work. It has been involved in raffle prizes for a number of different primary schools, community groups, hospital fundraisers and local hospices.
“The people of Northampton and surrounding area have supported us through difficult times, and it is a great opportunity to give something back,” says Managing Director Stuart O’Grady. “We are more than happy to donate to this fantastic event for a key worker, and at such a wonderful setting in Northampton.”
