Infinity theme for hospital ring raffle

Infinity is the theme for this year’s diamond ring being raffled by Woodland Jewellers as a fundraiser for Cariboo Memorial Hospital.

Infinity is the theme for this year’s, hand-crafted, one of a kind diamond ring being raffled by Woodland Jewellers as a fundraiser for Cariboo Memorial Hospital.

This is the seventh year that Woodland’s jeweller Geoff Bourdon has designed and made a ring especially for Woodland’s annual hospital ring raffle.

For this 81st anniversary ring raffle, Bourdon has designed a beautiful ring in white gold with .81 ct. of diamonds on the top in a figure-eight pattern with a natural blue diamond at the centre.

“The blue diamond is very rare,” Bourdon says. “The ring is made of 19/c white gold and is shaped in an infinity sign. There is a signature emerald in the bottom corner.”

Bourdon says the blue diamond is so rare that there was only one available among all of his diamond suppliers.

The ring is valued at $7,100.

There are 600 raffle tickets available for the ring at $20 each. All of the money raised by the ring raffle will be donated for Cariboo Memorial Hospital.

The winning ticket will be drawn during the Cariboo Foundation Hospital Trust’s annual gala fundraiser taking place at Sacred Heart Hall on November 29.

The $100 a plate Christmas Gala 2014 is already sold out but raffle tickets on the diamond are still very much available at Woodland Jewellers.

“To date our anniversary ring raffle has raised more than $50,000 for the hospital,” Bourdon says.
