Yesterday evening, i.e. Tuesday 30th, the Miami Heat players got their Jostens’ designed NBA rings in a glittering ceremony. The presentation was held at the American Airlines Arena and was followed by the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat game, the first of the 2012-2013 season.
For many players including LeBron James, this was their first championship ring. The occasion also saw the release of Championship merchandise that is available online for sale.
The 14K yellow and gold ring weighs 115 grams and is a veritable work of art. It is encrusted with more than a 100 diamonds, some carrying a princess cut and some are brilliants. The motto “FORGED IN THE FIRE BETWEEN A HAMMER AND ANVIL” is engraved on the inside of the ring.
