The Official Symbol of Love on the Bachelor SA | Jack Friedman Jewellers

On Valentine’s Day, February 14, viewers have their first date with South Africa’s very first Bachelor, Lee Thompson. The dashing entrepreneur, international model, philanthropist, and former Sharks rugby player will be laying his heart on the line in the hope of finding true love.

During his search for “the one” with whom he wants to spend the rest of his life, Lee will be charming 24 beautiful local lasses from diverse backgrounds. To help him is his quest, Lee will need a symbol of true love for his future wife, and when one thinks of love, South Africa’s most exquisite fine jewellery company comes to mind – Jack Friedman.

A Jack Friedman custom-designed engagement ring represents a promise and a future, a seal of the affection and commitment South Africa’s most eligible Bachelor wants to share with his future bride.

Says Jack Friedman company CEO, Howard Friedman: “Over many years in the business, I’ve developed a sixth sense that enables me to predict quite accurately whether a relationship will last. I recognize soulmates when I see them and, without fail, those couples stay together through thick and thin. The opposite, alas, is also true. If the magic isn’t there, I know it from the start. Soon enough one of them will be back to bring me some sad news and to hear if I’d buy back the ring.”

Howard, the proud father of two daughters, says of Lee: “He is any father-in-law’s dream; somebody who will to love, cherish and respect his wife, and treat her like a queen.”

Lee also impressed Howard with the effort and passion he put into the design of the ring. “He knew exactly what he wanted, and it was all about the emotion he wishes to express, or, as I prefer to call it, soul.”
