Diamonds are a girl's best friend, right?

"American Guns" star Rich Wyatt and his kids, Kurt and Paige, knew this and kept it in mind when he planned a special surprise gift for wife Renee for their big anniversary. No, the talented gunsmith didn't simply buy his beloved a giant rock. He, with help from the kids, did much, much more than that.

He created a totally blinged out custom pistol for her.

In an exclusive clip of "American Guns" provided to The Clicker, Renee's jaw dropped when she laid eyes on her new weapon. "It's the No. 1 blinged-up gun in the world," Rich explained. Among some of its lavish features? Mother-of-pearl grips, 10 carats of diamonds and silver plating. Check out the sneak peek of the big reveal and literally explosive celebration:

Though the family specializes in creating custom pistols, this one did not come cheap. As the episode reveals, the diamonds alone cost Rich $12,000. And that "low" price was only because Rich's jeweler pal knocked $3,000 of the original quote. Add the cost of labor and the rest of the materials and embellishments, and it's safe to say the gun cost a heck of a lot.

Want to see it all for yourself? This episode of "American Guns" airs at 10 p.m. on Monday on Discovery.
