On November 24, Asia's Song Bird, Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, wanted to treat her audience to a special performance with one of her newfound friends, the Megastar, Sharon Cuneta, on the second night of her special concert series "Regine at the Movies." But when the Megastar joined her onstage, nothing could have prepared her for what came next.
After the two powerhouse singers performed a duet of Sharon Cuneta's classic hits "Bituing Walang Ningning" and "Pangarap na Bituin," the Megastar pulled a surprise of her own by slipping off the huge diamond-encrusted ring she was wearing and gave it to Regine as a gift.
The custom-made cocktail ring inspired by the one on the Sex and the City movie was made by Candy Dizon of Jul B. Dizon jewelry. As she gave the ring to a very surprised Regine, Sharon explained, “Sometimes, I get this feeling that I want to give. This is the most expensive gift I’ve given to anyone.”
Here's a closer look at the said ring:
With one last look at the ring, Sharon jokingly said “I will miss you. I love you so much.” In response, Regine volunteered to give her husband, Ogie Alcasid, as a gift in exchange of the ring.
The Megastar then took that opportunity to promote her upcoming movie “Three Words To Forever,” in which she is starring alongside Richard Gomez and Kathryn Bernardo, directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina. She also announced that she will be doing a Book Two of her 40th anniversary concert. So it looks like we have something new to look forward to!
What a special (and sparkly) gift indeed! What can you say about the ring? Comment below!
