Queenstown mega-jeweller’s dazzling global giveaway


Queenstown jewellery magnate Michael Hill has lined up an American reality TV star to front a diamond giveaway. 

Kim Kardashian (pictured) is launching Hill’s global competition “ulitmate engagement ring – search for the world’s best couple” in New York next month – and there’s a killer 22-carat, princess-cut diamond up for grabs. 

Kardashian – from hit show Keeping Up with the Kardashians – will model the ring at the Rockefeller Centre unveiling before it goes on tour through nine cities, accompanied by Hill, from October 19 to November 4. 

Dating, engaged or married couples from New Zealand, Australia, the United States or Canada can enter the contest, which involves a series of online challenges. 

Six will then advance to another round of the competition, with a panel of judges selecting the lucky couple to fly to Chicago to collect the hefty rock.
