The Atlanta Braves handed out the most incredible World Series Ring ever made on Saturday night before the game at Truist Park. If you missed it, keep reading!
The ring is made of white gold – approximately 18.71 carat white gold.
WHY – It highlights the franchise’s first year…which was 1871.
It has a total of 755 diamonds.
WHY – It represents the number of homeruns hit by Atlanta Braves hero Hank Aaron.
44 of the diamonds are Emerald Cut.
WHY – It was Hank’s jersey number.
The “A” contains 150 diamonds.
WHY – Last year was the Braves’ 150th season as a professional baseball team.
In addition, the ring contains “World Champions” along the top. It’s accented with 113 diamonds.
Along the top, there are four princess-cut rubies.
WHY – They represent the four World Series victories achieved by the Braves.
The rings are made by Jostens and are the first designed to have working lights inside of it. The top is actually removable, but when it opens, you can see Truist Park lit up with micro-LED lights.
Also inside the ring, there are 11 rubies.
WHY – They are placed in the location of the eleven homeruns the Braves hit during the World Series.
There’s also a single pearl set in the middle of the World Series Trophy.
WHY – It represent the string of pearls outfielder Joc Pedersen wore during the playoffs
Each player’s number is also set in diamonds.
Back to Joc Pederson, he has been passionate about helping design the ring. He now plays for the Giants and we’re expecting that he’ll be given his ring when San Francisco comes to town.
Braves manager, Brian Snitker was moved to tears when he saw the design.
Braves fans will get a replica ring at the game Monday night. Ironically...it's hard to tell by sight which is the real one!
