"This Diamond Ring" was first recorded by Sammy Ambrose then by Gary Lewis & the Playboys. Lewis's version charted first, #101 on the January 2, 1965 Billboard "Bubbling Under" chart. Both versions charted on January 9, Lewis still at #101 and Ambrose at #117. Ambrose dropped off the charts at that point, but Lewis made #65 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart the next week (January 16) and his version continued to climb until it reached #1 on February 20, 1965.
