Wish for giant diamond ring

SANTA gets asked for a lot of things by a lot of people.

Top of his list in Coffs Harbour this Christmas will be a 22-carat engagement ring set in platinum, that’s worth a staggering $320,000.

The special wish will be made by Jess Lane and Nathan Johns at Park Beach Plaza this Saturday.

As contenders in the Michael Hill Jewellers Ultimate Engagement Ring Competition, the couple must complete a public display of affection and they’ve brought Santa in on the act.

“We will do a short skit in the Plaza at 10am where we will sit on Santa’s lap and I will say ‘All I want for Christmas is the Michael Hill 22ct diamond ring’ and then we will kiss in front of everyone,” Jess said.

“But we also need Coffs Harbour’s support to win.”

The high school sweethearts need votes via Twitter or Facebook to stand a chance of winning the giant rock.

If they make the top six, they will receive a $5000 voucher to spend at the jewellers. To vote for Jess and Nathan go to www.my22ct.com/profile/10489. Voting closes Wednesday.
