I had a chance to see one today in all its heavy gold and diamond encrusted glory on and off the hand of Tom Roddy. He's president of Benson Motors Corp., a dealership company owned by Tom Benson. Benson is a long time dealer who also happens to own a few other things, like the New Orleans Saints, winner of last year's Super Bowl.
Roddy is on the board of directors of the New Orleans Saints, and that earned him ownership of the ring. He admits that he gets a kick out of showing it off and he gets many requests from admirers to take photos of it.
He even took it off and let me try it on for size.
Says Roddy with a chuckle: "Not a bad looking ring is it?"
I totally agree.
