Frequently Asked Questions
FOR CONTEST PARTICIPANTS

How are Winners Picked?
Gemstone winners are selected by Contest Panel Judges (teachers from Orange County, California) who search for creativity, sincerity, and originality.

Why Didn't I Win?
Not every participant is selected for a gemstone prize. But we still consider you a winner for taking the time to compose words of love! You now have a beautiful poem that you may read to your mother right now. (It is important to read these words to your mom, for it is your thoughts and feelings that are more valuable than any gem.)

How Do I Write a Winning Entry?
It is important to grab the attention of these Contest Panel Judges immediately. Try trimming out non-important words and replacing them with strong, colorful words. Also, try to quickly get to the heart of your entry by omitting "My mom deserves a diamond because..." or, "...and that's why she deserves a diamond." Also, we know that your mom is the best in the world. we prefer you to tell us, in short, descriptive words, why she is the best.

Can I Enter Again Next Year?
If you weren't selected as a gemstone winner this year, you are welcome to enter again next year. Be prepared for our telephone call. You might even be the Diamond Winner!

Frequently Asked Questions
FOR WINNING FAMILIES


What if we can't come at my scheduled time?

To give equal attention for every winner and mom, each family is provided with a Date-to-Come and Time-to-Come. If you cannot come at your scheduled time, you may come anytime AFTER your scheduled time during the current Contest Year without an appointment.

The 2018 Contest Year will conclude on December 29, 2018. Please check for holiday and regular hours.

Can I Pick Up My Prize Without Mom or Without the Winner?
Winners must come with the person who inspired the entry to recite their winning words. Your winning entry is at Gallery of Diamonds Jewelers.

We Can't Find the Entry!
Don't worry. A copy of each winner's words is at Gallery of Diamonds Jewelers. Since we believe in the magic of the spoken word, each winner will read these words to their mom. This is the real prize of the contest! Make sure you leave with a copy of your entry on the free paper provided.

What Should we Bring?
Bring a camera! Some areas may be restricted, but your contest helper will make sure you can take a photo with an official winner placard. Sorry, NO VIDEO cameras are allowed. If you have any jewelry that needs to be repaired, this is the time to do it! Gallery of Diamonds is an expert at most all repairs. Some jobs can be done while you wait.

Do We Need to Purchase Anything?
No. The prizes are free. If you would like to set your winning gemstone into a piece of jewelry you can wear as a memory, your contest helper will show you many options and price ranges to choose from.
