A huge well-done to everyone who took part in the Holts Gems Gemmology quiz this week. We had a fantastic response and we’re very happy to know there are so many other gem geeks out there! 
And to announce the winner… drumroll please…
Nicky Wade of Gemmeus Historical Jewellery!
Congratulations Nicky, we will be in touch with you separately and look forward to seeing what you pick out with your prize! 
This week at Holts we have been busy adding some new coloured sapphires to our stock. We’ve been asked quite a lot recently for pink and purple sapphires, so we wanted to share a small selection of different shades with you (and of course use it as an excuse to practice our photomicrography skills!)
