Inside the Golden Knights’ Stanley Cup rings: Details of Vegas’ 2023 championship bling

Vegas is known for its bright lights and over-the-top extravagance. 

So it comes as no surprise that the Golden Knights had to go big for their championship bling. 

The Golden Knights received their Stanley Cup rings on Sunday ahead of the start of the regular season. Vegas delivered the city its first championship in hockey, as the Golden Knights defeated the Panthers in five games during the 2023 Stanley Cup Final. 

The days of a simple ring with a name and number engraving are long gone. There are plenty of intricate details on the championship band, including team mottos, a specific number of gems and diamonds, and even a miniature ice hockey rink.

Golden Knights Stanley Cup rings 2023

The Golden Knights received their Stanley Cup rings at a special ceremony on Sunday, just two days before the team raises its championship banner at T-Mobile Arena. 

The ring was designed and created by Jason of Beverly Hills, a well-known jewelry company that has crafted a number of championship rings, including those for the NBA’s Golden State Warriors and WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces. 

“Knowing the track record of Jason of Beverly Hills, I was confident that they could create a ring as distinctive as our city and as spectacular as the season this team put together,” Golden Knights owner Bill Foley said in a statement. “It’s clear they exceeded expectations and created a design I am sure our players, staff, and fans will cherish.”

There are a number of hidden gems — no pun intended — included in the championship rings, which are made up of approximately 12 carats of white and yellow diamonds. Here is a few of the ring’s features:

  • There are 16 stars around the inner bezel that represent each of the team’s playoff victories
  • There are 67 white diamonds on the helmet, representing the total wins in the regular season (51) and playoffs (16)
  • A detachable top that has one of the team mottos, “It’s Knight Time!” on it, that also reveals a miniature replica of T-Mobile Arena, with the location of all nine goals scored in the Cup-clinching Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final
  • Six stars on the banner that represent the team winning in its sixth season
  • Team mottos “Vegas Born” and “Always Advance” that are connected by the Las Vegas skyline
  • “Cup in Six – WPF” which is an ode to owner Bill Foley’s correct prediction from 2017 that the team would win a Stanley Cup by its sixth season
