How to Enter

By registering for the Sweepstakes you will be agreeing that your registration and any other information collected in connection with the Sweepstakes may be used by Plukka (HK) Limited and/or JewelSnob and may be shared with their affiliated business entities, if you opt-in to receive email or other communications from JewelSnob. You may subsequently opt-out of the receipt of such email or communications by contacting JewelSnob directly.
All online entries must include entrant’s valid email address. The Sweepstakes will begin on February 1st, 2012 and end at 11:59 PM EST on March 15th, 2012. Only one entry per person. We expressly reserve the right to disqualify any entries that we believe in good-faith are generated by a so-called spam or automated e-mail program or via scripts and automated submission. By participating, all entrants agree to abide by these Official Rules.
Two winners will be randomly selected. The winner will receive their choice of ONE of these: the “Anansi,” the “Purple Haze,” or the “Wavy Gumdrop.” Entries and prizes are nontransferable and cannot be redeemed for cash. No substitutions are permitted, except that Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater monetary value or cash value for any prize. Winners shall be responsible and liable for all federal, state and local taxes on the value of their prize. The result of the sweepstakes will be posted on www.JewelSnob.com by March 9, 2012.
A random drawing from among all eligible entries received will take place on March 15th, 2012 and the winner will be notified no later than March 31, 2012 by e-mail at the address submitted at entry. Winners must claim their prize within three (3) business days after the date of notification of such prize. A Sweepstakes winner’s failure to respond to the prize notification within the specified three (3) business days will be considered such Sweepstakes winner’s forfeiture of the prize and an alternate winner may be selected from the pool of eligible entries. The number of eligible entries received determines the odds of winning. In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the person submitting the entry, the entry will be deemed to be submitted by the person in whose name the e-mail account is registered. All drawings will be conducted under the supervision of JewelSnob. The decisions of JewelSnob are final and binding in all matters relating to this Sweepstakes.
Potential winners may be required to execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release (except where prohibited) (the “Affidavit/Release”). The Affidavit/Release must be returned by the deadline stated in such documents. If a potential winner fails to return such documents within that time, or if an entrant is found to be ineligible, or if a potential winner does not comply with the Official Rules, then the potential winner will be disqualified and an alternate entrant will be selected from among all eligible entries received as a potential winner. Grand Prize winner will be issued an IRS 1099 tax form for the approximate retail value of any awarded prize.

If a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, this will result in disqualification and an alternate winner will be selected.
