The winner of my Gem Hunter competition is…


I hope this short blog finds you all as well as can be expected.

I just wanted to start by thanking all of you that entered my  “Gem Hunter” competition that closed on Wednesday.

We had a wonderful response and I really appreciated it!

As with every competition there has to be a winner and in this instance I’m delighted to congratulate Ruth Hedges, who’s name was successfully pulled out of our “virtual hat” aka “The Randomiser” – isn’t that a great name for a TV Detective series?

Ruth, these fabulous earrings are on their way to you and congratulations to you again!

I’d also like to thank our guest Eli who’s company generously donated the prize as well as our fab Gem Buying team at The Q.

Next week’s Diamonique offer…

I’ve started a short break from ‘The Q’ and will be returning on-air at midnight on Thursday 26th to launch a stunning pair of Sterling Silver, Diamonique  100 facet stones,  fluid drop earrings – it’s our glamorous TSV for Friday the 27th.

I know you like to see pictures of Ellie and Toby my Bearded collies, so I decided to add a very short but energetic video – enjoy!

    Hi Dale. Back to 2011 were you in the audience of an Andre Rieu concert? Playing the Youtube clip I see a tall silver-haired guy who looks quite like you. He only appears for about 2 seconds though, so it’s hard to say. Just curious. It is said that we all have a double, so if it wasn’t you then that’s the answer!!
