Did you feel that earthquake-esque tremble throughout Boston this morning? That was the pants tent I got when I woke up and saw the Bruins Stanley Cup Championship rings. Holy shit do these things have diamonds on them.
Here’s the press release from the Bruins:
The crest of the Boston Bruins 2011 Stanley Cup ring features diamond set images of the iconic Boston Bruins
“B” logo and the Stanley Cup, fashioned in brilliant cut custom princess, princess and round diamonds set against
a background of 14 kt. white gold. There are six larger round diamonds on the crest of the ring that represent the
six Stanley Cups that the Bruins have won. The diamond-covered top of the ring is framed on the left side by
“STANLEY CUP” and on the right side by “CHAMPIONS” to record the Bruins’ 2011 achievement.
One shoulder is personalized with a player’s last name and sweater number against an antique black
background. The side includes an image the Bruins secondary “Bruins Bear” logo which is surrounded by six
stones honoring the Bruins as being one of the “Original Six” professional hockey franchises.
The opposite shoulder of each ring features a diamond-studded Stanley Cup framed on top by “2011” in gold and
diamonds which represents this year’s team and the first Stanley Cup that the Bruins have won under the
leadership of the Jacobs family. The years ’72, ‘70, ’41, ’39 and ’29 also frame the cup and connect this year’s
team to the earlier championship teams that helped build the Bruins into one of the most storied franchises.
So yeah, these things are boss.
