Crown Jewel Awards

There are 8 levels of Crown Jewel Awards that can be won. These awards were created to replace a set of 5 Queen's Crown Awards.

Here's how it works:

When a member has earned 5 of the same award, those 5 awards are removed and replaced with a Queen's Crown. Now we have several members that have earned 5 or more Queen's Crowns, so the Crown Jewel Awards were born.

When a member reaches 5 Queen's Crown Awards, those 5 crowns will be replaced with the first jewel, which is the "Crown Jewel Amethyst".

Once a member earns a jewel it stays on their profile and is not replaced. So if they earn the Amethyst (this is the first one awarded when they reach 5 Queen's Crowns) it replaces the 5 crowns. When they've earned 5 more queen's crowns, they get the next jewel, in this case the second one is Aquamarine. They will now display both the Amethyst and the Aquamarine.

The order of the jewels that can be earned are

Amethyst
Aquamarine
Emerald
Ruby
Sapphire
Rose Zircon
Topaz
Diamond

You can view all of the awards here. Barb and I will be going through and awarding these this week, please be patient. If you are still carrying 5 crowns by the end of the week on Friday, please let one of us know.
