Washington Capitals' Ring Has Arrived!

Before the Caps raise their banner and open their title defense Wednesday, they gathered Monday night to receive their hard-earned Stanley Cup rings.


Here are some of the details regarding the ring, via Jostens.

The ring is made of 14-karat white and yellow gold expertly set with diamonds, genuine rubies, and genuine blue sapphire. The ring features 230 round diamonds, as well as 22 princess cut diamonds, for a carat weight of 5.5. Increasing the stone count are 28 custom taper-cut rubies and seven custom-cut star-shaped rubies, totaling 4.6 carats. A star-shaped sapphire weighing .10 carats brings the precious stone weight to an astonishing 10.2 carats.


It's not just the Caps players who will receive championship rings, either. It was announced this summer that team owner Ted Leonsis planned to give championship rings to every full-time employee of Monumental Sports & Entertainment  -- about 500 employees in total -- that was on the payroll when Caps won the Cup.
