Sunday, 16th August was a bright and sunny Scottish day with the best kind of light to catch the sparkle of Eric N Smith’s diamonds.
We teamed up with iconic Glasgow Southside jewellers, Eric N Smith, and all ten of our finalists made the trip to the bespoke jewellers for a stunning photoshoot. While they were there they got to learn more about the precious stones.
As well as getting to try on some beautiful pieces in front of photographer Alan Peebles’ lens (more of which at the final) the girls were able to pick Eric’s jewellers brain. Our young ladies walked away much more clued up on diamond clarity, cuts and settings!
Eric enjoyed sharing his knowledge and said, “It’s enjoyable to promote these things and help the Janis-Sue and the girls along the way in this exciting competition.”
Unsurprisingly the girls fell in love with some of the pieces – and were able to understand just how valuable the pieces were. Julie Govan was particularly stunned saying “I’m wearing a house on my finger.”
They were delighted to admire the beautiful, bespoke designs which perfectly personify Eric’s 30 years of experience in diamonds and design. He added it’s a shame that only one will win.
Exactly what the girls got up to you will be revealed at our Grand Finale – we’ll see you there!
