Scotties jewelry

I want to put a video together showcasing the Scotties jewelry tradition and what it means to the curlers. I need your help in finding materials for this (articles, photos, videos, audios).

Here's what I have so far:

Jill Brothers talks to husband Paul about how the jewelry "grows"

Sarah Wark gets teary-eyed talking about her first Scotties
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6c2M5fryGVw&t=4m20s

Amy Nixon has a complete set of rings

Lisa Eyamie has pictures comparing empty vs full necklace
https://twitter.com/eyamiel/status/832784292048629760

Alison Kreviazuk has a close-up of the diamond ring (2014)

When Katherine Henderson announced equal purse between Scotties & Brier, Cathy Gauthier wants to know if the jewelry stays, before even asking what the new purse will be
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NHCRua1hVg

Stock photo shows close-up of JJ's diamond ring (2011). It looks larger than Kreviazuk's.

The materials I'm missing are:

* Confirmation that the diamond rings grow in size (i.e. you don't get 2 diamond rings for winning 2 Scotties, but instead you get the diamond enlarged), and if true, photo comparison

* Photos/videos of the bracelet

* Self-shot iPhone videos/selfies at the opening ceremony/banquet

Any other materials, even if they cover the same ground, is welcomed. I'd love it if the video is just a montage of curler after curler crying about receiving their first necklace.

Thanks in advance.

I found this old 2016 article from archive:
https://web.archive.org/web/2018011...ment-of-hearts/

quote:

The 12 teams that compete in the main round robin each receive a gold chain and pendant in the shape of the four hearts while the provincial/territorial runners-up receive keeper trophies. In addition, the Scotties Tournament of Hearts teams are presented with a red heart crest to be worn on their team jackets.

All repeat Provincial/Territorial champions have a diamond added to their gold pendants. Since Kruger Products assumed sponsorship of the Canadian Women’s Curling Championship, Nova Scotia’s Colleen Jones has distinguished herself as the “winningest curler” with four diamonds now adorning the pendant she won in 1982, a pair of diamond earrings to celebrate her sixth Scotties Tournament of Hearts win and a gold bracelet with six diamonds to commemorate her seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth and eleventh Scotties Tournament of Hearts provincial championship titles.

While Colleen Jones is the only skip to have won four straight Canadian titles, Pezer and Jennifer Jones are not far behind with three apiece.

The Scotties Tournament of Hearts trophy has been specially designed in silver with four heart-shaped columns of varying heights rising from a teak base. Each member of the winning team receives smaller replicas of the trophy in addition to gold rings, in the four-heart design, set with a .25-carat diamond. The runners-up receive gold rings with rubies and the third place team receives gold rings set with emeralds.



So apparently there are earrings as well!

Still no confirmation that the stones on the rings get upsized with repeated Top 3 finishes.

//update: the earrings may be no more. Also, this made it sound like the necklace is now for making it to Championship Round, not just for winning the province/territory.

https://stoh.ca/en/champions.php

quote:
It takes immense effort, teamwork and perseverance to earn a spot in the championship round of a Scotties Tournament of Hearts.

We honour that milestone by awarding each first-time qualifier with a gold necklace and pendant shaped like four hearts which represent the Scotties signature logo. The next four times a curler gets to the nationals, we add a diamond to the pendant. Six-time provincial champions are also given a tennis bracelet that we continue to fill with diamonds in tribute to this outstanding achievement.

Found article confirming upsizing of the rings!

https://www.saltwire.com/sports/led...onships-139503/

quote:
Teams repeating as Canadian women’s champions don’t get another diamond ring with the Scotties logo. Instead they hand back the rings they already have and the diamond is a half-carat bigger when it’s returned.


Found a close-up of Colleen Jones' diamond ring in 2019. It's not clear to me that this is larger than the other rings.

Heather Nedohin showed off her ring in a TV interview.

"This is our championship ring. [...] When you repeat, they double the diamond."

This interview was just before 2012 STOH, which she won.

Team Wark (BC 2019) also showed off their bling in this interview.
