For any fast food fans who are on the hunt for the perfect engagement ring this Valentine’s Day, look no further because McDonald’s has just unveiled an 18K gold rock that is in the shape of its signature burger.
The fast-food chain created the ‘Bling Mac’, a $12,500 ring inspired by its iconic Big Mac burger that comes complete with diamond patties and golden buns with tiny diamonds designed to look like sesame seeds.
McDonald’s gaudy ring was designed in collaboration with jeweler, Nadine Gohsn, who posted similar burger rings on social media leading up to the ‘Big’ reveal.

But the best part isn’t the ring itself (although that’s pretty amazing) but the fact that McDonald’s is giving away the ring for free.
To celebrate the three Big Mac sizes (Grand Big Mac, the Big Mac, and the Mac Jr.), McDonald’s will be giving the jewelry to one very lucky and devoted customer.
To enter, all fans have to do is just post a single tweet during the entry period with ‘only wedding vows professing your love and devotion to the Big Mac sandwich’ and tag McDonalds and include the hashtag #BlingMacContest.
The contest starts on February 7 and ends February 14 but the judging won’t take place until on or about February 19 and end February 28.
How to win: To enter the #BlingMacContest, fans will need to profess their love for the burger on Twitter
A vow: In their declaration of love, one fan tweeted that they would ‘vow to protect’ the Big Mac from whoppers
All entries will be reviewed by a panel of experts who will judge each tweet based on ‘creativity, love and affinity for the Big Mac sandwich and humor (how witty and comedic is the entry is),’ according to McDonald’s.
The one lucky winner will get to keep the custom-designed Bling Mac Ring appraised at $12,500 plus a check for $4,286 to help with taxes on the prize ‘or to use in winner’s sole discretion’.
And with the chance to win the ‘Bling Mac’ on the table, fans have already started to profess their love with tweets to the infamous McDonald’s burger.

Holding you above all other burgers. I would never look at another’s patties. I will make you as happy as you make my stomach. I will always love you, until death I part.’

Another tweet went so far as to thank God for being able to ‘meat’ the Big Mac.
‘Everyday I thank God that I was able to meat you,’ the tweet said. ‘From here on lettuce continue to love each other. We were able to ketchup after years apart and fell in love. It’s not bc [sic] of your hot buns but bc [sic] of your saucy personality. What can I say? I’m lovin’ you.’
And then there were the vows that got rather poetic.

This isn’t the first time, McDonald’s has participated in a customer giveaway.
Last year, the fast-food chain thrilled fans when it decided to give away bottles of the beloved Big Mac Special Sauce for the first time ever.
To encourage customers to go to McDonald’s to try new versions of its Big Mac, McDonald’s locations across the country gave away a total of 10,000 bottles of its trademark sauce for people to use at home.
The move was done as a way to celebrate the introduction of the Mac Jr and the Grand Mac, two different-sized variations of the classic sandwich.
