Tampa Bay Lightning got their 2021 Stanley Cup Rings and it’s even more beautiful than the first one!
Go big or go home right?
In a private ceremony this evening (10/21), the Tampa Bay Lightning players, coaching staff and ownership received their 2021 Stanley Cup Championship Rings.
According to a press release, “The ring top features the iconic Lightning logo created from 30 custom-cut genuine sapphires set atop a bed of 45 brilliant custom-cut and baguette diamonds. Accenting the top and bottom of the ring top is the title earned by the Lightning in their 2021 season, STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS, with a total of 22 tapered baguette genuine sapphires set underneath.”
“Lightning has struck twice; first in winning their back-to-back Stanley Cups, and second in a ring that has once more changed the landscape of Championship Rings. The Lightning’s 2021 Stanley Cup Championship Ring boasts an incredible 273 round diamonds, 45 custom-cut diamonds, 20 princess-cut diamonds, 30 custom-cut sapphires and 22 tapered-baguette sapphires for a total gem carat weight of approximately 31.67 carats, once again making history as the largest ring by carats in Jostens history.”
The 2020 Stanley Cup ring only had 557 diamonds, 81 sapphires, but it did have a really cool twist off top. So what could a three-peat ring look like? If the hockey gods look down on us maybe we will find out this time next year. Fingers-crossed!
