The opulent elite of today’s corporate empires can’t compete with the dazzling debonair prince of the railroad, “Diamond” Jim Brady. Nowadays big CEOs keep their personality private, but Jim let his publicly overflow. As famous for his appetite as he was for his fortune, Jim was known to eat enough for 10 people in one sitting. He hobnobbed with robber barons and actresses and always picked up the tab. The first person in New York City to own an automobile, there was just no ignoring Mr. Brady. And, of course, he earned his nickname for a reason. His most notable indulgence was diamonds. He wore them everywhere, from his suspenders to his cuff links, and often carried pockets full of loose stones.
Take a cue from one of history’s greatest showmen and get a ring with plenty of bling. The Buchanan (Jim’s middle name) is truly a sight to behold. Crafted in dynamic .925 sterling silver, the band swells to hold the 28 hand-set genuine blue sapphire rounds that form the dramatic frame around the focus of the ring. And what is the focus? Well, diamonds of course. A gold-clad setting of 49 stunners rises above the rest of the ring, flickering and flashing with striking brilliance. If you’re really looking to max out on white fire, choose the all diamond version. This is your chance to wear a men’s ring that might have upstaged even Diamond Jim himself!
