VATICAN-POPE-RING-FRANCHI

Caludio Franchi, goldsmiths who was commissioned along his brother Roberto to make the gold 'Fisherman's Ring' worn by Pope Benedict XVI when was elected in 2005, works in his workshop on March 18, 2013 Benedict was the first pope since the 19th century to commission a 'Fisherman's Ring' -- his predecessor John Paul II wore a simple gold ring with a cross -- and he has worn the chunky gold ring at all his major public appearances. The ring is so called because it depicts Saint Peter, who was a fisherman by trade, pulling up his net from a boat.
