It’s been a while since a reader of this championship ring blog sent photos of his own ring, but here’s a letter from another reader and the story of his gorgeous championship ring.

South Carolina championship rings

Marus works for an NCAA Division II school athletics department at the University of South Carolina Aiken. Here’s his letter and story:

“Hi Mike,

I’m a big fan of your blog and love the world of championship rings. Unfortunately I don’t have the money to collect them otherwise I’d probably do the same thing as you. However I do happen to be in the right place to start getting some of my own.

I work for a small NCAA Division II school’s athletics department, the University of South Carolina Aiken, and last year our women’s volleyball team won the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) along with the Southeast Regional title in the NCAA Tournament. As a staff member I was asked if I wanted to order a ring, as this was our first regional championship for a women’s sport in school history. Naturally I said yes and just recently received my very first (of hopefully many) championship ring!

I’m not interested in selling the ring but I did want to share it with you as a fellow fan. I’ve attached a few pictures of the ring I received along with one of my ring next to the ring our players received (it’s a women’s ring so its naturally smaller but has a beautiful design).

The rings were made by Terry Berry and are sterling silver. The stones are cubic zirconia and as for the large blue one in mine I’m guessing its blue spinel but I’m only guessing.

Thanks for sharing all the beautiful pictures of your collection and I hope you like mine, even if it is rather simple.


Marcus Johnson”

Marcus, congratulations on your stunning ring and hopefully the start of many more for your collection.

Please remember as always, I buy championship rings. If you would like to sell your championship ring in complete privacy, please contact me.
