LONDON - London Hilton on Park Lane, in the heart of Mayfair, celebrated the royal wedding in style by holding a surprise card draw on the day of the wedding (29th of April) with one lucky winner given the chance to win a beautiful Ceylon Sapphire necklace, gifted by the Sri Lanka Gem and Jewellery Association (SLGJA). The SLGJA have created a website to celebrate the Ceylon Sapphire and its long history with Royal Romances - http://www.ceylonsapphire.co.uk.

A limited edition Sapphire Afternoon Tea was created in honour of this great occasion and took inspiration from the Ceylon Sapphire engagement ring presented to the Duchess of Cambridge by Prince William. Everyone attending the Sapphire Afternoon Tea was automatically entered into this one-off surprise card draw to win this gorgeous and valuable Ceylon Sapphire necklace set in white gold and worth £2,000. Ceylon Sapphires, from Sri Lanka, are recognised by their distinct cornflower blue and are some of the oldest sapphires in the world.

The lucky winner, Joanne Safo from Middlesex, was picked and presented with the necklace donated by the SLGJA at the London Hilton on Park Lane. Joanne was extremely delighted and says “As always, I had such a lovely time at the Podium afternoon tea. It was my Mum’s birthday and she really enjoyed herself. Wow – it was really exciting news about the necklace and very unexpected, thanks very much! It really made my day!”
