The beards will never be forgotten.
The Boston Red Sox’s 2013 World Series rings are filled with bling – 4-karat white gold, 126 diamonds, 16 custom-cut sapphires and nine custom-cut rubies — but there’s something just as special inside the band, too.
Inscribed next to “10-30-13″ is an etched image of a beard with the words “Bearded Brothers” inscribed above it.
“During this special celebration of the 2013 Championship win, we were honored to present our players and uniformed personnel and staff with these spectacular rings that we hope capture the emotions of the 2013 season,” Red Sox owner John Henry said in a statement released by the team. “The rings celebrate the Red Sox’s winning history, capture the unique personality of the team and highlight the City of Boston, which was an integral part of this team’s story last season.”
