The Blackhawks will kick off their quest for another Stanley Cup run in just two days, but for now, the champs will continue to reap the benefits from the 2013 season.
The team received some seriously shiny hardware on Sunday night, as the Hawks were presented with their 2013 Stanley Cup championship rings during a private ceremony in Chicago. The rings, which were designed by Jostens, include 260 diamonds and gemstones each, totaling 14.68 carats.
With the iconic Hawks logo and “Stanley Cup Champions” making up the face of the rings, the inside of each one is personalized with Chicago’s journey to the championship. The logos of each of the four teams the Blackhawks beat in the playoffs is engraved on the inside, along with the scores of each of the series.
According to Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune, Jonathan Toews had some input on the design of the bling, and the captain’s ring can be seen in the photos below.
