Avalanche Stanley Cup rings

How would you like to put this thing on your finger? This is the Stanley Cup ring of Avalanche captain Gabe Landeskog, revealed tonight:

Here’s more on the rings the players are wearing.

More on the rings:

The ring top proudly features the Avalanche logo and their title of STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS set above 18 custom-cut sapphires. Creating the A are 6 custom-cut rubies, symbolic of the 6-game Stanley Cup Final. The logo is boldly set atop the coveted Stanley Cup. Paying homage to Joe Sakic’s lifetime commitment to the Avalanche and as the only team captain and General Manager to win a Stanley Cup with the same team, 19 diamonds are set in the snow flowing to the hockey puck on the logo. These diamonds total .22 carats, a nod to the 22 years of Kroenke ownership.

An additional 220 diamonds are intricately set, cascading down the ring top. A design element from the team’s jersey is brought to life along the top and bottom edges of the ring top through custom-cut rubies set in the pattern of the “mountain” stripe detail found on their jersey. There is a total of 36 rubies set in the stripes.

Superstreak Bonus!

The left side of the ring features the recipient’s name, honoring the individual contribution to the Avalanche’s success. Below their name, players receive their jersey number set in diamonds. Set on either side of the player’s number, are two sapphires which symbolize the ’96 and ’01 Stanley Cup victories. Completing the left side the alternate logo found on the shoulder of the team’s home jersey, which is accented with black ceramic – a nod to their 3rd and most recent Stanley Cup title. The background of the left side is a shimmering bed of 80 diamonds.

Displayed at the top of the right side of the ring is the team’s name created in the official Avalanche jersey font. Below are three Stanley Cups, the center Cup is set with 44 diamonds; the Cups to the left and right celebrate the previous franchise Stanley Cup wins. The year-dates of each Stanley Cup title are proudly displayed on the Cups. The background of the right side is completed with 28 diamonds. In total there are 72 diamonds set on the right side, these stones represent the 72 combined regular season and playoff victories won by the Avalanche. This feat tied an NHL record only achieved three times before in the league’s 104 year history.

Flowing from the top of the ring, down the sides and wrapping around the palm are an incredible 184 diamonds. When the stones set in the ring side are combined with the stones on the ring top, they total 650. The exterior palmside of the ring includes a detailed miniature version of the iconic Denver skyline, the home city of the Colorado Avalanche.

The interior of the ring features the team motto “FIND A WAY” with the “A” being the Avalanche logo. Below are the series results from the Avalanche’s dominate playoff run. As a final detail, the date of game six, 6-26-22 can be found on the interior palmside of the ring.

The Colorado Avalanche 2022 Stanley Cup Ring is truly a sight to behold, boasting a staggering total of 669 diamonds, 18 custom-cut genuine sapphires, 2 round genuine sapphires, and 42 custom-cut genuine rubies. In total, these rings have an astonishing carat weight of 18.50 carats of genuine gemstones.

I’m assuming guys like Darcy, Kadri, Burky and NAK were there? Any idea on attendance?

I don’t think most were, but Jack Johnson was there as the Blackhawks are in town to play the home opener.

Oof. It’s a Cup ring, but damn is it ugly.

Bob Neal

Once again we think alike. Extremely gaudy and oversized.

I have been told they make for great ear plugs!

ricoflashback

Kinda small and chintzy looking.

Jared Moss

Who pays for the rings? The nhl as it’s their prize? And anyone know how much for that large lump of stuff

I like the fan version WAY more than the ones the players got. Why wouldn’t they put the blue in the logo. That honestly kinda ruins it for me.

Wish they would think “out of the box” with the lousy TV deal they continue to shove onto patrons.
