Every year, Koop Diamond Cutters has a cool event called the “Grab-a-Gem.” Here’s the idea: they have a ton of different gems (including a 1.07 ct Diamond, 22.15 ct Aquamarine, and 1.26 ct Sapphire!), you buy a chance for $25 and you’re guaranteed to get a gem with your pull… possibly one of the big ones! Pretty cool concept, eh?
Well, this year, the event got even better because the 2017 Grab-a-Gem is set to benefit the NICU at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital! Woohoo! So, keep in mind when you’re buying your chances that 5% of all sales will be donated to the NICU at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in honor of staff who helped support owner, Justin Koop, and family after their daughter Audrey spent the first few weeks of her life in the NICU.
The event will be held on May 12 from 9 am to 6 pm and on May 13 from 9 am to 4 pm. Oh, and if you’re unable to attend, call and do a draw over the phone and have your winnings mailed to you!
This is such a great idea for a Mother’s Day gift… take your mom (or have your family take you, mama bears!) and let her pick a gem or two, and then have her make a custom piece with the gem she gets! And to get your inner fashionista prep for the event, here are a few ideas of Koop jewelry designs you could make with your gems!
