Diamonds DO do good!!!

Share your proposal story for the chance to win an African adventure of a lifetime!

Remember the night you got engaged, that special someone down on one knee asking you to spend the rest of your lives together? Don’t you just want to relive that moment over and over and over? Well, we want you to relive it too! And how about the chance to win the adventure of a lifetime to go with it? I’ve teamed up with the Diamond Empowerment Fund’s Diamonds Do Good Initiative for their ‘Real Stories. Real Diamonds. Real Impact’ contest.

Diamonds Do Good is a global initiative showcasing the good the diamond industry is doing in communities where it does business. From education and employment initiatives to environmental protection and access to healthcare, the diamond industry continues to make a positive impact in countries where real, natural diamonds are found like Africa, India, Canada and more. Visit to read some of these incredible stories.

We want to hear YOUR real proposal story, what it was like seeing your real diamond engagement ring and the real impact it had on you!

What’s the Prize? An African Excursion of a Lifetime! I'm excited to announce that I will help judge the top 5 entries and the winning couple will be flown to Botswana – known for being one of the world’s largest producers of diamonds including where Meghan Markle’s center diamond is from and where Harry and Meghan fell in love!

On this trip, you will witness the real impact diamonds have on this beautiful country first-hand. Botswana is one of the fastest growing economies in Africa largely thanks to the discovery of diamonds in 1967.

Since then, Botswana has seen: • Per capita growth averaging 5.9% every year making Botswana one of the fastest growing economies in the world; • Free tertiary education and universal healthcare for all its citizens, • Longest continuous multi-party democracy on the African continent.

Discover the Natural Beauty of Botswana

On a 4-Day ‘Chobe Off the Beaten Track’ Safari! Renowned as one of the top wilderness reserves in the world, you will roam among the wildlife of Chobe National Park, home to the largest concentration of elephant on the African continent. Glimpse into the world of these magnificent creatures as they enjoy a refreshing dip. Follow the steps of a lion, lurking through the brush. See through the eyes of a giraffe, grazing from the trees above.

A stay at the Grand Palm Hotel in Gaborone

An Afternoon visiting the SOS Children’s Village
