Out-bling THIS

A ring of Pope Pius VI from the year 1775, made of gold, brilliant cut diamonds and blue glass. You gotta love the papal portrait.

Just for the sake of clear arrangement I will create a label "Catholic Bling" now, but not without first solemnly proclaiming that it was Carolina Cannonball who came up with this label FIRST, so she's got the copyright and I hope she wont sue my trousers off.

I never thought I's say it, but this is a bit much even for my taste. Also I'm not so sure about wearing a ring with one's own portrait - I think it should either by just a stone, or a religious motive.
