NEENAH, WI--(Marketwired - December 01, 2016) - What would you do if given $1,000 towards a jewelry purchase? Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company is giving you a chance to fulfill your jewelry wish list as they launch the Season to Sparkle Sweepstakes -- a $1,000 giveaway in collaboration with the American Gem Society (AGS), a nonprofit association dedicated to consumer protection.
"The Season to Sparkle Sweepstakes is the perfect way to get people excited about jewelry as a gifting idea, whether shopping for loved ones or ourselves," said Trina Woldt, vice president, chief marketing officer at Jewelers Mutual. "Everyone loves the gift of jewelry."
Participants may enter the sweepstakes on the Jewelers Mutual Facebook page from December 1st through the 15th. Entrants are rewarded for sharing the sweepstakes with friends by receiving two bonus entries for every referral that uses their unique link to enter.
As part of the entry process, participants are asked to share what piece of jewelry tops their wish list and why it would make their season sparkle.
Randomly selected winners will claim one of several prizes:
- One grand prize winner receives a $1,000 jewelry gift card to any AGS retail jeweler.
- One runner up receives a $500 jewelry gift card to any AGS retail jeweler.
- Two third place winners each receive a trio of mini diamond canvases from artist Angie Crabtree, a $144 retail value.
- The first 25 people to enter each receive a jewelry cleaning cloth to keep their jewelry sparkling like new.
"Choosing jewelry is personal, emotional and exciting," added Woldt. "Anyone who has given or received a gift of jewelry understands the sentimental value attached to each piece that goes beyond the metal and stone. We're thrilled to celebrate this season to sparkle in a way that adds special meaning to gift giving."
Ruth Batson, CEO of the American Gem Society (AGS) and AGS Laboratories agreed, "We understand the thought and consideration that goes into picking out the perfect piece. And we're confident the winners will enjoy shopping at their local American Gem Society-member jeweler for jewelry that will be treasured for years to come."

ABOUT ANGIE CRABTREE
Angie Crabtree paints diamond facets enlarged 1,000+ times. Ranging from 24 to 64 inches tall, their large scale allows viewers to experience the small, beautiful gems in an up-close and personal way. Painted in oils on canvas, she uses a classical glazing technique to create a stained-glass effect, reminiscent of 17th century royalty portraiture. Using symmetry and repetition, the kaleidoscopic shapes suggest a hypnotic brilliance similar to the real thing. Crabtree creates commissioned paintings using gems from clients' personal collections. Her work belongs in private and corporate collections worldwide. She graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute, and attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Crabtree's studio is located in Berkeley, CA.
