Before the tip-off of the new NBA season, the reigning champion Golden State Warriors were presented with their championship rings from last year’s title.
Apparently, the rings set a new record… for the most diamonds on any championship ring in the history of the four major sports, including the NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL.
Designed by Jason of Beverly Hills, each ring boasts 11 carats in weight. There’s 36 princess blue sapphires to represent the number of Warriors’ home wins last season, while the 31 white trapezoid diamonds represent the team’s away wins. On top of the ring, there are 83 diamonds that represent the Warriors’ total number of regular season and playoff wins combined.
At the sides, “4-0” appears three times and “4-1” appears once to represent the team’s playoff-series records in 2017. “2016-2017” are listed around the ring, alongside each of the players’ numbers. The Roman numerals “XVI-I” appear on the side of the ring for Golden State’s playoff record, while five trophies on the side represent each of the five NBA championships won by the franchise.
Finally, the last name is on the ring for each player.
Jason of Beverly Hills has made four rings for the NBA champion in the past nine years.
