Uptown Diamond will present a $30,000 hand-crafted diamond ring Thursday to the lucky winner of the company’s clue-themed World’s Most Expensive Easter Egg Hunt contest.   Housed in an 18K yellow gold hinged egg, the ring showcases a 1.29 carat oval diamond surrounded by 1.27 total carat weight of round diamonds set in palladium. Both the ring and golden egg were designed by company founder Rick Antona.

“So often, Easter is focused on children’s activities,” said Antona. “I wanted adults in Houston to have a chance to embrace their inner child and be a part of the action.” As a father of two, Antona is no stranger to yearly Easter egg hunts, but was inspired to create a fresh, grown-up take designed to reward one clever participant.

The World’s Most Expensive Easter Egg Hunt contest was launched April 10th on the Uptown Diamond Facebook page, and invited participants to crack clues for a chance to participate in Thursday’s golden egg hunt at The Meadow at The Houstonian Hotel, Club and Spa. Participants were asked to guess the location of the egg, which was photographed at the Uptown Diamond offices, as well as at several Houston landmarks. Each participant solving at least one clue correctly is invited to participate in the hunt for the golden egg and ring.
