Miami Heat receive championship rings (Pictures, Video)
LeBron James finally has a ring. That is a sentence you probably heard numerous times last summer after the NBA Finals, but LeBron officially has the ring in his possession after the Miami Heat held their championship ceremony before defeating the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.
The rings the Heat received have plenty of bling, to say the least. According to the Miami Herald, each one is made of 14K white and yellow gold and has a modest 219 diamonds — or 10.8 total carats. The ring weighs a quarter of a pound, which sounds like a ton for one piece of jewelry. As you can see from the photos below, the ring features the Larry O’Brien trophy on top with a large diamond in the shape of a basketball.
Apparently significant others get a ring, too. Check out this cute little photo LeBron shared on Twitter after the game with the caption “his and hers.”
We’re guessing the female hand belongs to LeBron’s fiancee Savannah Brinson. Notice the ring is on her right hand. No LeBron, that won’t won’t suffice in place of a wedding ring. The show must go on.
