RP's Biggest Gold Ring On Display At Museo Dabawenyo

The P1.5 million Solidarity Ring, the biggest gold ring in the Philippines, is now on display at the Museo Dabawenyo in time for the Kadayawan Festival celebration.

The ring was created thanks to gold donations from local officials, businessmen and miners from Compostela Valley and Davao del Norte.

While not as big as Saudi Arabia's Star of Taiba which is considered the biggest gold ring in the world, the Solidarity Ring has an exterior diameter of 6 inches and an interior diameter of 5 inches. This is an 18-karat ring made of 306 kilograms of 99.99% pure silver of diamond finish as well as 1.18 kilograms of gold.

Get a closer glimpse of the Solidarity Ring at the Museo Dabawenyo only until August 24. If you miss that, you can still see the ring at its regular exhibition area at the lobby of the Provincial Capitol in Barangay Cabidlanan in Compostela Valley.
