Press Release: To celebrate a centennial milestone, Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company, provider of Perfect Circle® Jewelry Insurance, partnered with celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss to honor and reward couples' commitments with the "Everlasting Love" contest. Earlier this month, Ariela of south Florida was named the grand prize winner, and will receive $11,000 Erica Courtney® platinum diamond earrings for her story of everlasting love: "For Better or For Worse, We're Always Better Together."

The "Everlasting Love" contest showcased couples who exemplify everlasting love in celebration of the company's 100-year history of insuring jewelry that represents that love. To enter, contestants were invited to share what everlasting love means to them through the contest website from April 30 to May 21, 2013. Then, the public voted on the entries to narrow down the competition to five finalists. Jewelers Mutual and Erica Courtney chose the winner based on originality, creativity and representation of everlasting love.

"We're thrilled to announce Ariela as the contest winner. Her story exemplifies the power of true and everlasting love and, frankly, why we're in the business we are – to help protect the symbols and memories of a couple's love," said Patrick Drummond, the vice president of sales and marketing at Jewelers Mutual. 

Ariela's story speaks to her growing relationship with her fiancé Matthew, and how they overcame unforeseen hardships together.  The first, a long-distance relationship. Then, a medical tragedy, when the pair focused all their attention and time on visits to the hospital – where they realized how strong their relationship was. Four months later, Matthew took Ariela for her first Ferris wheel ride and when the car accidentally got "stuck" at the top, he nervously surprised her with a romantic proposal. Matthew and Ariela's love shines bright and even in the darkest times, their love conquers all. Ariela's story was viewed 1,736 times and readers cast 379 votes to make Ariela a top five finalist.

Ariela said, "Winning this contest means so much to my fiancé and me – it marks a major milestone in our relationship! We sincerely thank Jewelers Mutual and Erica Courtney for believing in us and our everlasting love story. I told my fiancé the first thing we're going to do is insure the earrings. Beyond my engagement ring, this is the most valuable piece of jewelry we now own!"
