Designer provides diamond as a prize for garden?s 60th celebrations.
Jewellery designer Andrew Geoghegan has donated a diamond to help RHS Garden Harlow Carr in Harrogate celebrate its diamond anniversary year.
RHS Garden Harlow, which is said to be home to some of the North’s most dazzling horticultural treasures, will use the diamond donated by Geoghegan as a competition prize for its visitors. In November visitors will be given the chance to find the diamond, worth £2,500, in its 60th anniversary Diamond Quest.
Geoghegan said: “We are really pleased to donate the prize in such an exciting year for Harlow Carr. The diamond is a stunning 0.5ct brilliant cut with a Gemological Institute of America certificate. The colour of the stone is G and the clarity is VS2 – a truly beautiful stone.”
Although visitors will take part in a quest to hunt out the diamond, the actual stone will be kept safe at Geoghegan’s studio in Leeds until the winner has been named.
