Winner of Braunschweiger Jewelers “The Ultimate Diamond Giveaway” Relishes Her Good Fortune

Ringing in 2014 was extra exhilarating for Michelle Radley of Morristown, NJ.  While enjoying an inspiring holiday get-a-way in Thailand, she was chosen as the lucky winner of “The Ultimate Diamond Giveaway” from Braunschweiger Jewelers.  The news came to her on New Year’s Eve – just in time to start 2014 on a note of gratitude.

Owner of JM Lifestyles, a design company in Randolph that specializes in concrete applications, Radley and her family were on holiday in Thailand to ring in 2014.  One of the traditions there is to let go of lanterns on the eve of the New Year.  The idea is to take all the negative happenings and everything that didn’t work from the past year and let it go into the air in order to make room for all the good that the upcoming year has to bring.  Radley was already reeling in the excitement of having won a raffle at the hotel before the evening activities of music, dancing and releasing of the lanterns, when she received an email that she was also the winner of Braunschweiger Jewelers “The Ultimate Diamond Giveaway.”   The prize being an exquisite 1.09ct round cut diamond with a retail value $5000.

“I was thrilled to be experiencing another culture and enjoying their unique customs –what an incredible way to ring in a new year,” stated Radley.  “I was already feeling thankful and thinking that 2014 was about being fortunate, this was the icing on the cake!”

The contest kicked off in November in collaboration with the airing of Braunschweiger Jewelers new television commercial.  Contestants were invited to enter the online drawing, through December 30th, by simply ‘liking’ Braunschweiger Jewelers on Facebook.  The random winner was announced on Facebook on New Year’s Eve.
