After this, they might have to change their name to the St. Louis Blings.

The St. Louis Blues received their Stanley Cup championship rings at a team dinner on Monday.

Unsurprisingly, there is an impressive amount of diamonds, 282 in each ring to go along with over 50 sapphires that help make up the Blues logo at the center.

The team introduced the ring to fans with a special video on Monday night.

"Everyone was in the consensus of those things were huge, well-thought out, well thought of, well done," Blues forward Brayden Schenn said. "It's amazing just to see that looking at it on your finger. It's pretty special, we'll have that together as a team."

Each ring features the player's name and number on one side with the St. Louis Arch on the opposite side. Inside the ring are the playoff series scores of the Blues run to the Cup.

And, for the finishing touch, each ring has "Play Gloria" inscribed underneath the band, a reference to the 1982 Laura Branigan hit that became the team's anthem.

"If you actually think of all the detail and what they tried to accomplish putting all that stuff in there, it's a lot more detail than what a lot of us were expecting," Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo said. "And the cool part is it tells the story, it tells the story of us. That's what you want it to do."

Created by jewelry company Jostens, each ring has a weight of 10.6 carats.
