On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me.... five gold rings!
Who wouldn't be delighted to receive such a gift? Did you know that the world's most expensive engagement ring was given to Elizabeth Taylor by Richard Burton. This dazzling ring is encrusted with a diamond that weighs 33.19 carats and was sold at an auction by Christie's in December 2011 to an Asian collector for $8.8 million!
I'm sure Denise Hubbard, the designer of the 'five gold rings' floral arrangement, won't be able to get her hands on 33 carat rings but we're promised an exquisite golden arrangement which will include stunning gold roses. What a treat!
Many thanks to Bentley Motors, Crewe, for sponsoring this arrangement.
