Every year, Koop Diamond Cutters has a cool event called the “Grab-a-Gem.” Here’s the idea: they have a ton of different gems (including a 1.07 ct Diamond, 22.15 ct Aquamarine, and 1.26 ct Sapphire!), you buy a chance for $25 and you’re guaranteed to get a gem with your pull… possibly one of the big ones! Pretty cool concept, eh?
Well, this year, the event got even better because the 2017 Grab-a-Gem is set to benefit the NICU at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital! Woohoo! So, keep in mind when you’re buying your chances that 5% of all sales will be donated to the NICU at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in honor of staff who helped support owner, Justin Koop, and family after their daughter Audrey spent the first few weeks of her life in the NICU.
The event will be held on May 12 from 9 am to 6 pm and on May 13 from 9 am to 4 pm. Oh, and if you’re unable to attend, call and do a draw over the phone and have your winnings mailed to you!
This is such a great idea for a Mother’s Day gift… take your mom (or have your family take you, mama bears!) and let her pick a gem or two, and then have her make a custom piece with the gem she gets! And to get your inner fashionista prep for the event, here are a few ideas of Koop jewelry designs you could make with your gems! 🙂
We’ve been working with Koop Diamond Cutters for years now, and the last time I went and met with them, the owner Justin happened to mention that their family owns the building and they have a cool event space upstairs if we ever want to use it! Ding ding ding! Light bulbs immediately went off… Of course I had to go see it! It was BEAUTIFUL! The wheels immediately started turning on what we could host there. That’s when it hit me… Let’s do an event that incorporates Koop’s gorgeous jewelry, and my other favorite hobby other than shopping… WINE! And voila! Wine & Shine was born! And it’s coming up on Oct. 15! And it’s free! And did I mention there will be jewelry, shopping…. and wine?! 🙂
When: Thursday, October 15, 5:00-8:00pm
Where: Koop Diamond Cutters 214 E 8th Street Cincinnati, OH 45202
Enjoy: Wine tastings, local boutique shopping, and a freeze model fashion show dripping in the season’s latest custom design jewelry trends and Curate Boutique clothing. Each attendee will receive a complimentary Cincy Chic tote bag filled with glam goodies!
I think this is such a great event idea! It’s the Grab-A-Gem event at Koop Diamond Cutters downtown. The concept is simple: you pay $25 to “grab a gem” (limit of 4 per person) and you could be the lucky winner of diamonds, sapphires, or one of their many other gems.
The great news is that EVERYONE is a winner! You could win their grand prize (a diamond valued at $6,400), but even if you don’t, you still leave with a fab gem that you can create a custom piece around!
Check out a few examples below of things people have made with their “grab a gem” winnings! Click here to find out more about the upcoming event taking place May 8 & 9, which is Mother’s Day weekend! What a great way to create a memory with mom! See you there! 🙂
