Laura Major, deputy manager for Drakes, said: “What an amazing competition! It’s the perfect opportunity to put that ring we have always imagined to paper and to offer our customers a ring that’s completely unique to Drakes. It will be such an achievement and I’m sure we are all going to have lots of fun.”

The team will have until 20 June to submit an inspirational ring design to the judging panel, Andrew Hirshman and two members of the jewellery manufacturer.

In July, the top 3 finalists will be invited to a state of the art jewellery workshop where the winner will be announced.

We pride ourselves in offering an exceptional experience at Drakes and what better way than welcoming a ring designed by one of our very own team members?
