CHRISTMAS will come very early for 11 Weekend Post readers from this weekend as stunning crystal jewellery is up for grabs in our first of three competitions with top Eastern Cape-based jewellery design house Jenni Collections.

There will be a whopping R26550 worth of exquisite, hand-crafted Swarovski crystal jewellery to be won until the end of the year – and your first shot at this treasure trove starts today! All you have to do to find out how to enter is get your copy of Weekend Post today (Saturday) – or tomorrow!

Jenni Collections’ owner Jenni Gault has built up a reputation for her magnificent, modern designs that have been turning heads around South Africa.

She is the only officially licensed Swarovski jewellery specialist in South Africa, and Africa, and clients may view her sparkling creations by prior arrangement at her new studio in Mill Park, Port Elizabeth. Her designs are sold at selected Eastern Cape jewellers and nationally, and she even has clients abroad.

“We show our new ranges in Europe every year at some of the world’s most important jewellery shows. We recently came back from International Jewellery London and also attended the biggest gem and jewel fair in Asia,” said Jenni’s husband and business partner, Bruce Gault.

“Jenni is especially excited as she’s been invited to attend the Hong Kong jewellery fair next year.”

This weekend’s competition, entries for which close at noon on Tuesday, is for three Crystal Combination rings – one of Jenni’s most exciting signature  ranges  – plus a R200 voucher for the first-place winner, valued at a total of R1850.

Then there are also a whopping 10 Crystal Combination rings as consolation prizes, with each of these 10 winners also receiving a R200 voucher from Jenni Collections, adding up to a total value of R6500. The prize package for this weekend’s competition totals a cool R8300.

Keep an eye on Weekend Post in the coming weeks as we will run two more competitions  – one in November and one in time for Christmas in December – when more  jewellery may be won.

Jenni’s Crystal Combination sets, one of which can be won this week, include one 7mm ring, flanked on either side by a 3mm version. The 10 rings for the consolation prizes are each 3mm and the winners may  choose from a variety of colours during a personal consultation with Jenni.

“Jenni only uses pure metals and the Crystal Combination rings to be won are made from jewellery grade stainless steel,”  Bruce said.

 Jenni Collections is on 083-379-9797.
