In the movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), Bond (George Lazenby) gives Contessa Teresa di Vicenzo or Tracy (Diana Rigg) a two-colour gold wedding ring. The ring has a unique design and was originally designed for the film by fashionable 1960s jeweller Charles de Temple. The design spells out the phrase "All The Love In The World", from the famous song in the movie "We Have All The Time In The World" sung by Louis Armstrong. Bond first spots the ring at a jewelry shop and then later in the film gives it to Tracy during the wedding ceremony.

At the time of the movie, a licensed reproduction of Tracy’s wedding ring was made by Arts Galore of London and like the original, it spelled out the phrase in solid gold against a sterling silver band. These rings are very rare, only 50 were made.

One ring, a reproduction from the same mold as the original ring by Charles de Temple, has surfaced at a Christie's auction in 1998. That ring then fetched £4830.

Recently, a ring was created by a Bond fan. The original ring was meticulously studied and only a few rings were created by a professional jeweller, some in silver, some in gold and even a few in platinum. The ring consists of two separate pieces that fit perfectly together. Each part has the 1960s-design of the phrase of the famous Louis Armstrong song. These rings will become collector's items. One of these rings was used during a marriage proposal on the red carpet of the London SkyFall World Premiere in October 2012. For more information regarding this ring contact Bondtoys.de.

My Granddad was the jeweller who worked for Charles at the time and actually made the ring, which was one of his many fantastic pieces, he also made the mold for casting a gold finger for the subsequent Bond film.
