The Pittsburgh Penguins Stanley Cup win this past June was a pretty significant one.

For the franchise it was the fifth time hoisting hockey’s Holy Grail, tying them with the Edmonton Oilers for 6th most all-time and 3rd most since the league expanded from the “Original 6” in 1967. It was also their second time winning back-to-back championships, and the first time any NHL team has accomplished the feat in 19 years.

For Sidney Crosby it was his third Stanley Cup win as Captain of the Penguins, surpassing the two Cups won by franchise icon Mario Lemieux. The win pretty much cemented his status as one of the greatest hockey players of all time.

With a championship this significant, everybody expected the Penguins to design a pretty incredible Stanley Cup ring. And everybody was right. The Penguins unveiled their 2017 Stanley Cup Championship rings on Monday, and they are pimped as hell.

Designed by Jostens, the 2016-17 Stanley Cup Championship Ring is made of 14-karat white and yellow gold and features 394 diamonds in total. Those 394 include 199 round diamonds creating a “full-domed waterfall effect” on the top, a series of yellow diamonds forming the Penguins crest, a .75-karat pear-shaped diamond forming the Penguin’s chest, and a “tapered baguette” diamond forming the Penguin’s hockey stick.

The most distinctive feature of the ring? The tiny 5 diamonds that makes up the Penguin’s eye, a nod to the team’s five championships.

Take a look:

That’s a lot of ice.
