The L.A. Kings Receive the Most Personalized Championship Ring Ever Made

October 8, 2014


Each championship ring has a personal engraved message that is completely exclusive to the recipient:

LA Kings Stanley Cup Championship Ring


The Los Angeles Kings received their Tiffany-made Stanley Cup rings on Monday evening during a private dinner downtown. The Kings players, coaches and administration received their championship rings in a very different manner compared to 2012, when they received their rings on the ice before raising the banner.

The Stanley Cup rings arrived on a silver platter in the famous “little blue Tiffany box”, as the rings were designed by the world premier jeweler, Tiffany & Co.

Tiffany also designed the teams 2012 championship rings. This year’s version is much different. In 2012 the ring was a diamond-outlined Stanley Cup with the Kings’ logo in the middle, in black enamel. The 2014 championship ring is a diamond-studded version of the Kings’ logo, looking much bigger and flashier then the 2012 ring.

The official ring will be on display at the Tiffany & Co. Beverly Hills location from October 10-12. Like they have for recent other championship teams, Tiffany is also selling commemorative sterling silver championship rings to the public.

“The face of the ring, measures 32mm, and features the LA Kings’ shield comprised of 136 round diamonds amongst pave set black spinel’s. The top and bottom bezels surrounding the shield read “STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS”.

Highlighted by the beaming lights of the Staples Center, the player’s name and jersey number appear on the one shank while the other showcases the iconic Stanley Cup and the teams’ overall playoff record (16:10). Imagery of the Stanley Cup being hoisted overhead and decorative artwork are some of the many elements differentiating the 2014 Championship Ring from the 2012 version. Inside the ring is an inscription of the 2014 series scores, celebrating the Kings’ road to victory.”

One interesting feature on the 2014 championship ring is the totally custom wording each recipient was allowed to place on the bottom of the ring (see photo above).

Kings Public Relations executive, Mike Altieri got his personalized, and I’m going to go out on a limb and say this is the first time a championship ring has a hashtag on it.

Kings fans are attempting to decode Altieri’s hashtag, with “year of the multiple banners” seemingly the best guess (last season’s Stanley Cup was their second in three seasons). Altieri apparently hasn’t even told the rest of the team what it means.

So it looks like each championship ring has a personal engraved message that is completely exclusive to the recipient.

Jim Plunkett Shows off MVP Super Bowl XV Ring

October 1, 2014


The 1970 Heisman Trophy Winner and two time Super Bowl Champion is pictured below with his Super Bowl XV Ring.

Oakland Raiders Super Bowl XV Ring


After earning the Heisman Trophy in 1970, Plunkett was the first overall pick in the NFL draft.

Chosen by the New England Patriots, he played for them for 5 seasons before being traded to the 49ers.

Released by the 49ers during the 1978 preseason, Plunkett signed with the Oakland Raiders in 1978 and served as a backup over the next two seasons.

In 1980, starting quarterback, Dan Pastorini broke his leg and the rest is history. Plunkett won 9 of 11 games and the Raiders went on to become the first wild-card team to win the Super Bowl.

He was named the Super Bowl MVP and became the second of four players to win the Heisman and Super Bowl MVP awards.

Plunkett would win one more super bowl, in 1983.

Being the MVP of Super Bowl XV probably means more to him than his victory in Super Bowl XVIII, and could explain why he is wearing the XV Super Bowl ring in the picture.

The championship ring shown in the photo, was made by Lenox (who is now owned by Jostens), and is a 46 gram, solid 14K white gold ring. The ring has two large diamonds that symbolize the team’s second Super Bowl victory.

Jerry West’s Amazing Championship Ring Display

August 25, 2014


Born in West Virginia, a local WV Steakhouse called, Prime 44 West, houses Jerry’s Championship Rings and a Larry O’brien NBA Championship trophy.

Jerry West Championship Rings


How did Jerry acquire so many championship rings?

Jerry West was a professional basketball player who played his entire professional 14 year career for the L.A. Lakers.

Jerry was also the co-captain of the 1960 U.S. Olympic gold medal team in Rome. The entire team was inducted as a unit into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010.

West had a very impressive NBA career. Playing the guard position, he was voted 12 times into the All-NBA First and Second Teams, and was elected into the NBA All-Star Team 14 times. West was the All-Star MVP in 1972, the same year that he won the only title of his career.

West holds the NBA record for the highest points per game average in a playoff series with mind-blowing 46.3. He was also a member of the first five NBA All-Defensive Teams (one second, which was then followed by four firsts), which were introduced when he was 32 years old.

Having played in nine NBA Finals, he is also the only player in NBA history to be named Finals MVP despite being on the losing team (1969). West was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 1980 and voted as one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA history in 1996.

After his playing career, West was head coach of the Lakers for three years, leading Los Angeles into the playoffs each year and earning a Western Conference Finals berth once.

West was named general manager of the Lakers prior to the 1982–83 NBA season. Under his reign, the Lakers won a whopping six championship rings.

In 2002, West became general manager of the Memphis Grizzlies and helped the franchise win their first-ever playoff berth. For his contributions, West won the NBA Executive of the Year Award twice, once with the Lakers (1995) and then once with the Grizzlies (2004).
