We will run the contest for 1 week, ending JANUARY 25, 2011, at midnight (PST).
A winner will be chosen randomly from all those who submit the correct answers and will be announced on January 26th.

PM answers to Barbra Voltaire. If you do not get all answers right the first time, you can enter again.

The prize has again been donated by our own Jason Brim.
Appropriately, the Grand Prize is:

11ct oval lead glass filled ruby surrounded by 5mm round genuine white Zircons set in unplated sterling silver.
Size is 6.5.

PS...This ring is grandiose in scale!

I made a spelling error in the original crossword, so I made another one.
The clues are the same, but this time they are spelled correctly.

Please try again.

Hey, I just began to wonder... but that ring is REALLY grandiose in scale, isn't it? If the surrounding zircons are 5 mm in diametre, then the ring must be something like 2,5x3 cm across!? :shock:
