FAQ’s

Q. IS THE EXPERIENCE SAFE? HAS SOMEONE EVER SWALLOWED THE DIAMOND?

A. The Diamond Reception is an experience that undergoes strict supervision before & during your event.

All guests are made aware pre the event and walked though during it. Guests that participate, agree in taking full responsibility and so are fully aware about the diamond at the bottom of the champagne glass (which sits at the bottom & does not float).

We also have experienced staff at hand who inform each and every guest upon arrival, hence safeguarding individuals and making it as enjoyable as possible.

We have never experienced or had any guest swallow the diamond during an event.  We have undergone Health & Safety / Assessment reports that suggest if ever swallowed, it would not cause any immediate or long term damage, illness or health issues. However, we advise all parties booking to have relevant public liability insurances which should nevertheless be the case in any public or private event situation.

If you have any questions regarding safety, please contact us directly & we will be happy in dealing with any concerns or in disclosing the correct procedures required for a safe & fun Diamond Reception.

Q. HOW MUCH DOES THE EMBEE DIAMOND RECEPTION COST ?

A. Costs depend on a few factors, mainly number of guests, value of winning diamond (£1000 is minimum and £10,000 maximum). We also offer additional areas as part of the package (optional) where we offer luxury pouches with branded cards (your logo on the card & a mention of: ‘We hope you enjoyed the experience’). The pouch with card and crystal fake stone, is then given to all attending guests after the experience, like a ‘goody bag’ type offering. We find all guests are very forthcoming and it is a great momentum of the evening (and good PR in reinforcing your logo / event).

Priced start from £25 per head + VAT (excluding travel costs )* and dependant on number of guests / package content. Costs tend to be higher when fewer guests are booked.

Minimum booking is for 50 guests  and maximum 1500 and based on content of your package & written confirmation.

We do also offer additional areas such as the champagne itself, glasses, staff or even organisean entire ‘Diamond’ themed’ event for you from start to finish.  Please do get in touch with one of our representatives to discuss this option further.

Q. IS THE DIAMOND GENUINE & CONFLICT FREE?

A. Embee Jewels of London are a well established and credible jewellery brand with over 20 year’s experience and highly respected within the industry (www.embee-jewels.com ) . All the stones are ethically sourced and come with a fully certified ‘certification’ provided to every Diamond Reception that is booked.

PLEASE NOTE: not all companies attempting to offer  Diamond Receptions are official and so we advise caution. Booking an event without official certifications / industry experience could result in your event being seen to be unethical practice & handling ‘unknown’ diamonds . This can not only jeopardise your brand / event, but could also lead to serious consequences. The Embee Diamond Reception are the most recognised & experienced of its kind to have been approved and associated with some of the finest brands, charities and locations in the UK/World.

Q. HOW MUCH NOTICE DO I NEED TO GIVE IN BOOKING AN EMBEE DIAMOND RECEPTION?

A. Minimum booking time required is 4-6 weeks from date of your event, however we can organise events within 2-3 weeks based on a 15% increase of the total cost of your booking. Bookings are confirmed once agreement terms are agreed, signed and a 50% deposit are paid to secure your event (unless special arrangements are agreed or organised). Written quotes are valid for 2 weeks from submission and could then change or be amended by us.

Q. WHO CAN BOOK THE EMBEE DIAMOND RECEPTION?

A. The Embee Diamond Reception is mainly booked by the Events industry either by Event / PR agencies for their client events/launches or by venues, hotels, bars, clubs and high end locations wanting to PR a seasonal event or attract new business / clients or customers (i.e. valentines, Christmas events, summer balls) or by charities to sell glasses of champagne to guests around tables in maximising donations and in making the experience creative & memorable. (i.e. £25 per glass, with one winner of a diamond worth £2000 – if a charity sells 200 glasses, they generate sales of £5000 in record time!)

Many will admit, that the Embee Diamond Reception is a fantastic way to enhance any event or occasion and different gemstones can also be used to target a theme/occasion or corporate message i.e. sapphires, emeralds or rubies!
