MANILA, Philippines - At the 18th Wedding Expo of the Philippines to be held from March 12 to 13 at the SMX Convention Center, Goldenhills Jewelry, which will present its latest collection of wedding and engagement rings, is giving away a wedding ring and bridal diamond earrings. As a major participant of the event, it will also be offering discounts to buyers at the fair.

Goldenhills first started its chain of stores in 2004 to showcase its creations. From its first outlet at the jewelry section of the Greenhills Shopping Center, it now has a number of stores in Metro Manila and northern Luzon, all staffed with attentive and knowledgeable personnel. It has won in various jewelry design competitions in the country, including the Philippine Design Competition and the Guild of Philippine Jewelers’ Jewelry Design Competition, both in 2006.

For the grand raffle of WEP18, Goldenhills is raffling off a pair of sparkling baguette wedding rings among the soon-to-wed couples who will be booking with any of the exhibitors during the two-day fair. The pair of 14-carat rings is centrally set with a baguette-cut diamond with a total weight of 0.26 carat. The tri-band design is centered with matte-finished gold and shiny yellow gold on both sides. The rings are priced at P62,300.

A pair of bridal diamond stud earrings will be given away to the soon-to-wed bride who will buy from the Goldenhills booth onsite. The 0.64-carat diamond stud earrings are set in 14-carat shiny white gold, priced at P73,500.

Admission is free if you pre-register online at www.themesnmotifs.com. Free passes may also be secured at the Themes & Motifs Wedding Resource Center at Makati Shangri-La Hotel and from participating exhibitors. About 400 suppliers have signed up for the event, including photographers, videographers, photo booths, fashion designers, florists, caterers, reception venues, hotels, honeymoon destinations, cakes, invitation makers and social printers, and makers of souvenirs and giveaways.

WEP 18 will occupy 6,000 square meters of SMX, making it three times bigger than most wedding fairs in the country.
