Fresh of a second straight Stanley Cup win, the Pittsburgh Penguins rewarded themselves with another piece of championship jewelry.
The team showed off their newest piece of bling on Monday, a ring crafted by Jostens, from 14-karat white gold and with nearly 400 hand-set diamonds totalling over nine carats.
As per the team release, “The iconic Penguins logo rests atop a yellow gold pavé-set triangle set with 10 dazzling yellow diamonds, creating a layered, three-dimensional appearance. A .75 carat pear-shaped diamond rests in the Penguin's torso, with a subtle number "5" creating its eye, a nod to the franchise's five Stanley Cup victories. A tapered baguette sits in the end of the hockey stick and completes the logo in striking fashion.”
It also features five white gold Stanley Cups, representing the franchise’s championship seasons, on one side, with a pair of Cups and a ‘Back-2-Back’ banner on the other.
"It always is a very special day, and a dream come true, for an NHL player, coach or staff member to receive a Stanley Cup ring," said David Morehouse, president and CEO of the Penguins.
When the new season starts on October 4, the Pens will attempt to become the league's first three-peat champions in 35 years.
