Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez got the surprise of her life when actress and singer Sharon Cuneta, aka Megastar, gave her a diamond studded two-finger ring.
Regine Velasquez received the gift during her concert “Regine at the Movies” at the New Frontier in Quezon City on November 24, 2018, wherein Sharon was a special guest.
After singing “Bituing Walang Ningning” together, Sharon gave Regine the flower-shaped cocktail ring.
Sharon said the huge two-finger ring, is the most expensive gift she has ever given anyone.
Last October, Sharon Cuneta also gave Vice Ganda a diamond studded bracelet when she appeared on his show, “Gandang Gabi Vice”.
According to Sharon, the flower ring was made by her friend Candy Dizon of Jul B. Dizon jewelry and that she had the ring for 10 years.
It was inspired by the cocktail ring that Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) bid on at a Christie’s auction in the first “Sex and the City” movie (2008).
The flower ring in the movie was bought at $55,000 or around PHP 3 million at current exchange rates.
Needless to say, the ring given by Sharon must be worth at least that much or more, considering inflation for the past 10 years.
Regine Velasquez’s funny reaction about Sharon’s gift
Upon receiving the ring from Sharon Cuneta, Regine Velasquez asked if she can pawn the ring.
Sharon replied, “Wag mo namang isangla…” [Do not pawn it please].
Sharon asked if Regine has any “remembrance” for her in return.
Regine said she has and said, “Ibibigay ko na sayo yung asawa ko kapalit nito.” [I will give you my husband, in exchange for this.]
Then looking at her husband Ogie Alcasid, Regine said, “Uy, hon, umuwi ka muna kina Sharon ha, mga one week lang”. [Hey honey, go home to Sharon’s place, for one week only.]
Sharon replied, “Hindi na. Ok na. Ok lang ako. Huwag na.” [No. I’m ok. Never mind.]
A day after the concert, Regine Velasquez can be seen proudly wearing the ring that Sharon gave her.
