Win a 1/2 Carat Diamond!

To celebrate the diamond anniversary year of  RHS Garden Harlow Carr in Harrogate we have donated a 1/2 carat diamond.  Harlow, which is said to be home to some of the North’s most dazzling horticultural treasures, will use the diamond 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.

The diamond is a stunning 0.50ct 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 our studio in Leeds until the winner has been named.

The lady behind Andrew in the image is Harlow Carr curator Elizabeth Balmforth; “We wanted to do something really special to mark our sixtieth anniversary year and a diamond hunt, on our diamond anniversary, hit the spot.  Not only does it give visitors the chance to explore the grounds and find out more about our work at RHS Garden Harlow Carr, but the person who marks the correct grid reference will take away the diamond!”

Competition entrants will follow the trail of five giant diamonds, gather clues and mark X on the printed grid on their entry sheet. The nearest entry to the diamond’s location in the gardens will win.  Click Harlow Carr for more details on the gardens.

If you take part good luck and if you win, Andrew will see you later this year.

All Images on Flickr

All our images have had some TLC: Re-touched, backgrounds whitened and standardised in size. We have uploaded them to Flickr. But how is this helpful you may ask?

  • If you are a Journalist or Editor, then all the images can be downloaded in 300dpi with no need to cut the images out.
  • If you are an AG Retailer, then these can be downloaded in high res for your advertisements and also for your website.
  • If you are a simply looking for stunning piece of AG jewellery you can see the full range in one glance rather than trawling through the site.

So all you retailers and journalists, downloading is a cinch:

  1. Click on Andrew Geoghegan Flickr and you should see a page with a large selection of images.
  2. Click on the relevant photo you would like to download.
  3. You should now see a large image with an ‘actions’ tab on top.
  4. Click the ‘Actions’ tab and then ‘view all sizes’.
  5. You can click which ever size you want to view and then download. All the images are 300dpi and the original image is the largest.

Each time we shoot new pieces we will update the collection on Flickr so keep logging on from time to time. If you are struggling at any point then please get in touch.
