Pittsburgh Penguins receive their 2016 Stanley Cup championship ring
The 2016 Stanley Cup champions, who beat the San Jose Sharks in the final round of the playoffs, received their impressive rings last week during a private ceremony at the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh. Only a few days earlier, the team was honored at The White House by President Barack Obama. “These unique and brilliant rings will always be an inspiring symbol of what our players and coaches accomplished by winning the Stanley Cup,” said Penguins president and CEO David Morehouse. “On behalf of our owners, Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle, as well as our players and coaches, I want to thank Jostens for the creativity and craftsmanship that went into this very special Stanley Cup championship ring project.” The Penguins' Stanley Cup championship ring is crafted in white gold, while "STANLEY CUP CHAMPION"' frames the top and bottom edges of the ring in yellow gold. The iconic Penguins logo crest is custom-cut in a black onyx stone with a half-carat pear-shaped diamond within the Penguin's torso. The Penguin's hockey stick features one tapered baguette diamond, and the triangle in the background of the logo, representing the shape of downtown, is made up of 18 yellow diamonds. Thirty custom-cut princess diamonds are set in a circle around the perimeter, with an additional 15 stones set behind the logo crest. The edges of the top and sides of the ring are waterfall-set with diamonds, and the left side panel proudly displays the team name, the player's last name and the player's number, all pave-set with diamonds. The right side panel features the year 2016 and four diamond-encrusted Stanley Cup trophies, which proudly represent each of the storied franchise's championship victories for Pittsburgh. The inside arbor is engraved with the team motto, "Just Play," and the records of the four playoff series wins on the path to Stanley Cup glory.
