Saturday morning, March 9, couples and individuals from as far
away as Jackson gathered in front of Hill's Jewelry in Laurel to
participate in the city wide scavenger hunt for a diamond ring with a
.92K cushion cut diamond on a 14K white gold mounting.
to get the first clue in the hunt, the participants had to complete a
crossword puzzle by answering several questions about Laurel. The race
was on when one-by-one the twenty-three participants figured out the
first clue and scampered to their vehicles. One couple, who was among
the first to leave, were so excited they forgot to put the car in gear
before trying to take off. Others couldn't get their keys in the
ignition fast enough.
Hill's Jewelry owners, Jeff and Cortney
Hill, came up with the idea for the Diamond Hunt when they were looking
for a way to say thank you to their customers for their loyalty over the
past three years since opening their business. As they developed the
clues for the hunt they wanted to showcase historical places and
non-profit organizations in Laurel as well as other small businesses.
