Bling Kings: Stanley Cup rings to be unveiled on opening night

The Los Angeles Kings aren’t just rolling out their first-ever Stanley Cup banner during opening night on Saturday. Each player will also receive their championship rings from Tiffany & Co.

Feel free to haphazardly plug the word “bling” into your descriptions, as the press release reveals that the face of the ring will include 104(!) “brilliant pave set” diamonds.

As the Los Angeles Times’ Helene Elliott points out, an official photo of the ring hasn’t been released yet, but here are a few more details from the press release:

  • Also on the face: the Kings logo and “Stanley Cup champions.”
  • On the shanks*: the Kings’ crown, the NHL’s official logo, the year 2012 and the team’s 16-4 postseason record.
  • Oddly, no mention of barely making the playoffs.

The Kings roster is largely intact from last season, so the team probably only has a few rings to awkwardly hand out to departed players such as Kevin Westgarth.

Want a recent history of Stanley Cup rings? Puck Daddy provided detailed observations in this post about the Boston Bruins’ bling.

* – Pretty sure that’s not the part of the ring used for stabbing.
