If you look closely at the rings, not only does he put intricate detail into the buildings themselves, but the bands are also treated with detail, such as stairs and brickwork. The Paris ring wraps the Eiffel Tower around your finger and back up to the city.

My personal favorite may be the French Alps Ring, but it's pretty difficult to choose just one. Any favorites out there? These would be perfect for one of those people who's extremely passionate about a specific city or culture (who could also afford the not-so-tiny price tags).
