The ring has a large top setting that measures almost as large as quarter ( a tad over 1") and it has tiny silver bead work all around it ( a few are missing). The ring is between an 8 1/2 and a 9 and is completely hand wrought. Many artisans set up shop in Monte carlo because when winners win.. they want to SPEND.... So this custom ring came to being at well over a few thousand dollars which was just a drop in the bucket to what he won. IT is the thought that counts ( and the private plane there and all the fabulous hotel rooms and clothes that help as well).
Not for the insecure or faint of heart!
