When the Boston Red Sox won the 2018 World Series over the Los Angeles Dodgers, I’m sure they never seen themselves tied for last in the American league East by the time they received their rings, but here they are…
Just before the team took on the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday, the Sox had a pregame ceremony that finally unveiled their Championship rings:
According to a news release by Josten’s, the manufacturer of jewelry and memorabilia behind the rings, the Sox ring is “crafted in 14-karat white gold…with the Boston B logo [made from] 21 custom-cut genuine rubies, which represent the 4 [recent] World Series titles won by the Red Sox. The logo is surrounded by 22 intricately set custom-cut blue sapphires, which are emblematic of the Red Sox’s 14 postseason games played and the incredible 8 home runs hit during the World Series alone.”
The rings contain “185 stones which represent the 162 regular season games plus 14 postseason games plus the 9 World Series titles now held by the Red Sox. The ring features 4.5 carats of diamonds, 6.5 carats of blue sapphires and 4.0 carats of rubies for a total gem weight of 15 carats.”
That is some serious bling!
