Red Sox's flashy 2018 World Series rings do not disappoint


The Red Sox kicked off their 2019 home opener with a ring ceremony celebrating the team's 2018 World Series win.

But these are just any rings. These are some serious hardware:

According to a news release by Josten's, the manufacturer of jewelry and memorabilia behind the rings, the Sox ring is "crafted in 14-karat white gold...with the Boston B logo [made from] 21 custom-cut genuine rubies, which represent the 4 [recent] World Series titles won by the Red Sox. The logo is surrounded by 22 intricately set custom-cut blue sapphires, which are emblematic of the Red Sox’s 14 postseason games played and the incredible 8 home runs hit during the World Series alone."

Further, Josten's says that the rings contain "185 stones which represent the 162 regular season games plus 14 postseason games plus the 9 World Series titles now held by the Red Sox. The ring features 4.5 carats of diamonds, 6.5 carats of blue sapphires and 4.0 carats of rubies for a total gem weight of 15 carats."

While perhaps not quite as tongue-in-cheek as the Patriots' decision two years ago to use Super Bowl rings containing 283 diamonds, after the 28-3 deficit the Patriots overcame against the Atlanta Falcons, these rings are nonetheless quite a marvel to behold.
