  5. To claim the major prize of a loose diamond, the winner must bring their ring prize (numbered box and ring) plus the letter to Wallace Bishop headquarters at Cnr Commercial Rd and Doggett St, Newstead Brisbane by close of business on Friday 29 December 2017.

How many ring boxes are there a day?
At least one ring box will be placed every day of Brisbane Festival.

How many clues are there a day?
One. But that doesn’t mean there aren't more sparkly surprises around for unsuspecting Festival goers!

What time will the clue come out?
Any time of day. We like a surprise.

Can you tell me more about how they are hidden?
The ring boxes won’t be anywhere you need to move furniture, climb or dig to find them. Please look with your eyes not your hands, and be respectful of the places and people where you are searching.

Will you announce when the ring boxes are found?
We’re not monitoring and announcing when the ring boxes have been found – you’ll only know if someone shares their lucky find on the Facebook event.

What happens if the ring boxes aren’t found by the end of the day?
The ring boxes are snapped up quickly! But in the unusual event that one is not found, it will be re-hidden on another day.

I’m under 18 – can I participate?
You can find the ring box but cannot exchange it for a diamond.

Are the diamonds ethically sourced?
Please see the below statement from Wallace Bishop:

At Wallace Bishop we are committed to ensuring that every one of our diamonds is sourced in a sustainable and ethical manner. As such we adhere to stringent procedures to guarantee that we are constantly acting in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. In doing so, we hope to provide you with the utmost peace of mind when making your diamond purchase.
