The SF Giants unveiled their swanky, new 2010 World Championship Ring, created by Tiffany & Co. about an hour ago via Facebook. It's the first MLB World Championship ring made by Tiffany & Co., and as you can see it's quite a dazzler.
According to MLB.com, the Giants dressed their best for today's ceremony, decked out in gold-embossed caps and jerseys with gold lettering and numerals. The Chronicle's "The Splash," has details on the ceremony, reporting that the rings were "escorted to the plate around the warning track, by motorcycle cops, cops on horses and inside vintage cars," as a band played Copeland's "Fanfare for the Common Man."
The ring is made primarily of white gold and consists of a total of 77 diamonds weighing just under one carat. The classy design pays homage to earlier eras and was inspired by the Giants 1933 World Series ring. More details include
The ring top features the team's "SF" logo set with round diamonds encircled by a bezel of yellow gold flanked by two round diamonds.
One shank has the year 2010 flanking a yellow gold tower of the Golden Gate Bridge -- the iconic symbol of San Francisco. The other shank has the recipient's name in a ribbon over the World Series trophy. Within the top of the trophy is one mandarin orange spessartite representing the San Francisco championship and at the base of the trophy are five diamonds representing the five New York championships.
