Fans are still reeling from Regine Velasquez's expensive gift from Sharon Cuneta.

The Asia's Songbird received the gift from the Megastar last November 24, at the former's Regine At The Movies concert in New Frontier Theater, Quezon City.

ABS-CBN head writer Darla Sauler posted on Instagram a close-up shot of Regine's new ring, which she proudly wore the next day at ASAP Natin 'To.

Darla captioned, "Grabeeee ang singsing na binigay ni Nanay @reallysharoncuneta kay Ate @reginevalcasid o! Sabi nga ni Ate, nabudol-budol niya kagabi sa concert si Nanay hehehe! Are you ready for #ASAPNatinToTrends? Ay watch."

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) got in touch with jeweler Candy Dizon of Jul B. Dizon jewelry, via Instagram message, and got more interesting details about the now-famous ring.

"We were chatting about how much she loves and treasures the ring, but her love for Regine is more important than material things," she said.

According to Candy, the ring, which was custom-made for Sharon, was inspired by the cocktail flower diamond ring from the movie Sex and the City (2008).

She told PEP.ph, "Sharon came to me and asked me to make a ring for her that she saw in Sex and the City the movie.

"It’s a huge flower ring that is worn on two fingers instead of the regular one.

"I said that I would have to make slight changes on the design so that there’s still a sense of uniqueness to it."

The ring was worn by Canadian actress Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones.

Candy added, "It is made up of more than 8 carats of very good quality diamonds and set in 18 karat white gold.

"It took us 30 days to complete the ring due to minor revisions that Sharon and I agreed half way through production."
