WASHINGTON — The Washington Capitals’ 2018 Stanley Cup Championship rings were unveiled and presented to the team Monday during a private ceremony in D.C.
The rings, created by custom jewelers Jostens, are made of 14-karat white and yellow gold with diamonds, rubies and blue sapphire.
And there are a lot of gems on those rings.
Each features 230 round diamonds, as well as 22 princess-cut diamonds, 35 rubies and a star-shaped sapphire.
“We have always had one single, unwavering goal for the Washington Capitals: to build a team as great as our fan base,” said Caps owner Ted Leonsis in a news release.
“These rings will now forever be a reminder for the players, coaches, and fans: We did it.”
In addition to the rings, Jostens has a “fan collection” but be warned: the items there are pretty pricey.
One fan will also have a chance to meet Leonsis if they win a CapsRing.org contest running from Oct. 3 to Jan. 3 — he’ll present the winner with their own Capitals Stanley Cup Championship ring.
The winner also gets two tickets in the owner’s box to a Capitals game.
A spokeswoman for the Capitals said they are asking for a minimum donation of $10 to enter the contest. All the proceeds will go to benefit The Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation that supports youth sports, education and fitness, military veterans and the homeless.
