Chicago, IL. – October 4, 2015 – The Chicago Blackhawks presented players and staff with their 2015 Stanley Cup Championship Rings during a private ceremony tonight in downtown Chicago. Created by Jostens, the leading national custom jewelry designer and producer, the championship ring celebrates the organization’s third Stanley Cup win in six years.
The 2015 Stanley Cup Championship Ring boasts 355 round, pear, marquise and custom princess-cut diamonds all meticulously set in a 14 karat white gold ring. This collection of stones comes together to create a stunning all white ring which tops over 10.8 carats.
The ring top boasts the Blackhawks logo created with custom-cut diamonds sitting atop a bed of 50 custom princess-cut diamonds. The words STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS surrounds the top and bottom of the ring top, giving way to four shimmering rows of round pave-set diamonds. The four rows of diamonds are master set and cascade down the side of the ring in a waterfall effect.
The right side features all six Stanley Cup trophies the team has won. Round pave-set diamonds are stacked up to form the base of each trophy. The left side features the Blackhawks secondary logo created with pear and round pave-set diamonds, as well as each player’s name and number. Inside, the team’s motto of ONE GOAL is featured along with a silhouette of the trophy. The Blackhawks 2015 postseason opponents and series scores are also included.
