DIAMONDS REPRESENT FOREVER

15

Did you see the Chicago Cubs’ championship rings? Wow!!


The championship ring, which is the first in Cubs history, is loaded with 108 diamonds commemorating the 108-year title drought as well as an image of the infamous billy goat which has “cursed” the franchise since 1945.

According to the team’s press release, the championship ring is made from 14-karat white gold and features a red Cubs logo made from 33 custom-cut genuine red rubies, surrounded by 72 round white diamonds, all within a circular perimeter made up of 46 custom-cut, genuine blue sapphires.

I didn’t think you get 108 diamonds on one ring, much less 33 rubies. That’s 141 stones total on a single ring. I’d almost be afraid to wear the thing after dark.

I guess when you go that long without a championship you want to do it up right.
