THE CHICAGO CUBS CHAMPIONSHIP RING HAS 214 DIAMONDS
It took the Chicago Cubs 108 years to win another World Series, and it was worth the wait: according to multiple sources, each team member of the Cubs has received his championship ring last Wednesday (April 12) – and it has some serious bling.
According to the team, the Chicago Cubs World Series Championship Ring, designed and produced by Jostens, “is made from 14-karat white gold. Its top features the traditional Cubs bullseye logo, masterfully crafted from 33 custom-cut genuine red rubies that are surrounded by 72 round white diamonds, all within a circular perimeter made up of 46 custom-cut, genuine blue sapphires. The bezel is surrounded by 108 round white diamonds lifting the Cubs logo to victory and signifying the end of a historic 108-year championship drought. Overall, the ring contains 214 diamonds at 5.5 karats, 3 karats of genuine red rubies and 2.5 karats of genuine sapphires”.
One side of the ring features the player’s name set atop the iconic W Flag created from diamonds, and the other side displays the message ‘CUBS WIN!’ and a silhouette of the World Series Trophy with a large round white diamond set in the center.
