The gorgeous championship rings were handcrafted by Jostens:

2018 Washington Capitals Stanley Cup ring

Jostens, and the Capitals, unveiled the National Hockey League’s newest Stanley Cup championship ring. In a private ceremony, Washington Capitals players, coaches and staff were presented with their magnificent championship rings.

“We have always had one single, unwavering goal for the Washington Capitals: to build a team as great as our fan base,” said Capitals owner Ted Leonsis. “These rings will now forever be a reminder for the players, coaches, and fans: we did it. We are thrilled today to be able to unveil this beautiful ring, which will always be a proud symbol of the Capitals’ incredible 2018 Stanley Cup run and the unbreakable bond they created among all Caps fans who shared in the joy of that moment together.”

The Stanley cup rings celebrate the Capitals historic 2017-2018 season – their first Stanley Cup championship in team history.

“We at Jostens were honored to partner with the Capitals to create their stunning inaugural championship ring,” said Chris Poitras, Vice President of Professional Sports. “This timeless ring is expertly crafted by the Jostens Design team which is lead by Master Jeweler Miran Armutlu and pays special tribute to the relationship between the Capitals and the great honor they feel representing our nation’s capital.”

The championship ring is made of 14-karat white and yellow gold and contains tons of diamonds, genuine rubies, and a blue sapphire. The championship ring has a whopping 230 round diamonds, as well as 22 princess cut diamonds, for a carat weight of 5.5. Adding to the precious stone count are 28 custom taper-cut rubies and seven custom-cut star-shaped rubies, totaling 4.6 carats. A star-shaped sapphire weighing .10 carats brings the precious stone weight to an astonishing 10.2 carats.

The championship ring top features the Capitals logo created from red and blue enamel and is surrounded by 27 diamonds, all of which is encircled by 28 custom taper-cut rubies. The three star-shaped rubies set above the logo are inspired by the Washington DC flag, where the stars represent Washington DC, Virginia, and Maryland. An additional 157 diamonds create a cascading waterfall effect down the sides of the ring top. Dual rows of channel-set princess-cut diamonds accent the top and bottom of the ring top, each row containing 11 diamonds, making for a total of 22. The words “STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS” are set in yellow gold and strikingly complete the ring top.

The left side of the Stanley cup ring features the player’s name set above the Capitol building, which is created in stunning detail from 14-karat white gold. A custom-cut star shaped ruby and sapphire are set on either side of the Capitol building. The player’s numbers are set to the right with stones ranging from 7 to 18 diamonds. Check it out below:

Below that is the iconic Stanley Cup trophy created in white gold and set with 20 diamonds and one star-shaped ruby, which represents the team’s first Stanley Cup Championship. Two additional star-shaped rubies flank either side of the Stanley Cup and commemorate the Capitals’ two Eastern Conference Championships. The words “WASHINGTON DC” appear above it all, paying homage to the home base of the franchise and the extraordinary privilege of honoring the nation’s capital.

The inside of the championship ring contains the Capitals’ logo surrounded by the logos and series scores from their journey to making history as Stanley Cup champions for the very first time.
