Farmers are being offered a chance to win a $12k diamond ring.

The rare 2-carat green diamond ring is being given away to a deserving farmer by an urban couple through DairyNZ.

“This is our way of celebrating the hard work dairy farmers do every day – often without thanks,” London-trained jeweller Mark Beckett and his wife Pamela told DairyNZ.

“We reckon this rare green diamond is the perfect way to celebrate our dairy farmers who are committed to caring for our land and environment, and we believe, just like diamonds, they are here forever.”
