Jeweler Offers Free Gun With Purchase


NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa, (UPI) —  An Iowa jewelry store is offering free guns to customers who purchase engagement rings before the end of October.

The Jewelery By Harold store in North Liberty said the “buy her a diamond and receive a free hunting rifle” promotion will begin Thursday and run through Oct. 31, KCRG-TV, Cedar Rapids, reported Tuesday.

“Fun is more important than anything else. We try to put some fun in it,” store owner Harold van Beek said. “Hunting season is coming up. I thought this is cool so let’s do something for the boy who doesn’t like to hunt for diamonds, but likes to hunt for deer.”

Van Beek said customers who buy diamond engagement rings costing $1,999 or more prior to the end of the month will receive vouchers for free Remington 870 at Fin and Feather in Iowa City.

“Diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” van Beek said. “So say: I’m hunting deer, and here is a diamond ring, dear.”
