In the recently published special edition of Wanted Watches, Jewellery and Luxury 2019/20, we erroneously posed a competition question that refers to only one of the six covers of this magazine. That means those readers who received one of the other covers would not have been able to find the answer.

Wanted apologises for this error and would like to clarify the answer:

The question for the competition on page 103 of the magazine is: How many diamonds are there in the earrings on the Van Deijl Jewellers cover.

The correct answer is: The earrings on the Van Deijl cover contain 168 calibrated diamonds (totalling 1.18ct). 

Wanted Watches, Jewellery and Luxury 2019/20 Van Deijl Jewellers cover.
