Dennis Allen, chairman of Emagold, and John Henn, chairman of the National Association of Goldsmiths drew the three prize-winning postcards on 3 September from a bumper entry drawn from retailers countrywide. The competition was open by post to all members of the NAG as well as providing some light entertainment to visitors during the first three days of the fair.
The winner was Anthony Frost of Frost Brothers in Worthing. Mr Frost, who has won an 18ct. double drop diamond pendant from Emagold member, T A Durant worth £715 and a place on the NAG’s JET Gemstone Course, value up to £850, said he was ‘Delighted and astounded’ to have won.
Second prize, a pendant from Charles Green worth £395 went to Melanie Jeffrey of T N Hill in Moreton-in-Marsh, while Anne Simpson from Scottish Gems in Edinburgh took the third prize of a pendant worth £275 from M & M.
