Gallery of Diamonds will award three Orange County students to receive a quarter-carat diamond valued at $600 each to give to their mothers in the 22nd annual Why Mom Deserves a Diamond® contest. Beginning in 1993 in honor of my adoptive mother the birth mother I had never known, the contest inspired nearly 20,000 kids to write words of appreciation for their mothers this year. Many other creative entrants receive natural gemstones.
