Gem Sleuth £100 Giveaway



Like Sherlock Holmes, fine gemstones have enduring appeal and we're excited to introduce our literary fans to our collection of fine jewellery.

And what better introduction, than a mind- stretching competition.

The winner of our competition gets £100 to spend on authentic gemstone jewellery. To enter you simply need to cite as many written and visual references to gems and jewels as you can from the canon. This could be the title of a story, some finer detail related to a case, an illustration caption or annotation. It really doesn't matter, just so long as the reference is from the original Sherlock Holmes stories.

How to enter:

For each reference you cite, simply use the message box below to provide a few details of the cited gem or jewel and the name of the story to which it relates.  Please input each reference on a new line. 

The winner is the entrant who accurate cites the most number of references.  In the event of a tie, the names of the qualifying entrants go into a lucky dip draw.  The first name drawn wins the £100 and the remaining runners up get a 221b key pendant and chain.

Terms and conditions of this competition can be found here.  Please note that your email address and telephone number are collected for the purpose of administering this competition only.
