Winner Of The Paul Gross Jewelers Diamond Dig!

Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. – After last night’s game between the Rafters and the Chinooks, Paul Gross Jewelers presented the Ladies Diamond Dig. 300 women took place in the event which was held on the Witter Field infield.

All 300 ladies received a Paul Gross Jewelers ice cream scoop as their tool as they tried to find the buried pendent box in the infield. After quite a bit of digging we finally had a winner as Lisa Zvolena found the pendent box. Robin Koeshall, the owner of Paul Gross Jewelers, then presented Lisa with the half carat pendent that is valued at $1,900.

Paul Gross Jewelers will also be holding a "Digging for Gems" event at their store located at 241 Oak St, Wisconsin Rapids, August 21st & 22nd where they will have a sandbox filled with 1 carat diamonds and over 300 gemstones! Please see store for more details.
