David Arquette Buys Stunning Diamond Ring for Daughter Coco

12/15/2014 at 05:00 PM ET

No last-minute holiday shopping for David Arquette: He has already made a big buy for the little lady in his life.

While in Miami earlier this month, Arquette stopped by the U.S. launch of jewelry line YVEL at MC Kitchen, where he purchased the line’s Dazzling Black & White Ring ($11, 500) for daughter Coco Riley.

According to a source, Arquette, 43, “went crazy over the jewelry — even re-merchandising some of the cases.”

Eventually, the actor settled on the stacked jewel-encrusted sparklers for his 10-year-old daughter with ex-wife Courteney Cox because of their “very dainty and delicate feel.”
