Scavenger hunt for engagement ring goes high tech in Florence

Florence, SC - FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - A scavenger hunt is going high tech in Florence this weekend, as more than 200 couples comb the streets of downtown for a $12,000 diamond ring.

To celebrate its 75th year of business, Galloway & Moseley Fine Jewelers have planted a $12,000 Hearts on Fire ring in downtown Florence for one lucky couple to find. All clues and challenges are delivered to couples through text messages, and each one will lead one couple closer to the diamond ring.

Organizers say once the game kicks off at 10 a.m., teams will be sent sprinting around Florence to help solve the text message clues. When the event is complete, Galloway & Moseley will hold a celebration event for all couples involved.

To participate in the game, couples must submit their love stories to the official Galloway & Moseley website. The couples will be handpicked by Galloway & Moseley employees to participate in the event.
