The 2019 LSU Tigers completed one of the most impressive seasons in college football history, and now they have the rings to commemorate it.
LSU shared photos and a video on social media Tuesday of the three rings members of the team received for their accomplishments. Players received rings for winning the SEC Championship, a College Football Playoff-provided ring for winning the CFP, and a national championship ring provided by LSU.
A team unlike any other deserves a ring unlike any other.
Scratch that — they deserve rings unlike any other.
Yellow gold and sixteen purple stones adorn the face for LSU’s 16 conference championships, and the scores of all eight conference wins in 2019 line the interior of the ring. One side features the score of the championship game in Atlanta and the text “Geaux Tigers.” The other features the owner’s name and position with another signature phrase: “One Team. One Heartbeat.”

The CFP ball logo is gold, but LSU got a bonus: they asked for purple stones to surround the CFP logo and were granted their request. Purple is one of LSU’s primary colors.
LSU provided national champion ring
– Features white-gold LSU stones on top of a yellow-gold rendering of the national championship trophy. Combined with the purple stones behind the trophy, it showcases all three official school colors: purple, gold, and white.
– Four stones for the four national championship programs in modern history line the edges of the top.
– One side features a rendering of Tiger Stadium.
– The state of Louisiana is on the other side of the ring.
– Inside of the ring is the engraved text “LSU standard of performance”, which is a message used by Coach Ed Orgeron.
LSU went a perfect 15-0 last season. Seven of their 15 wins came against an opponent ranked in the top 10 at the time of their game, including a win at then-No. 2 Alabama. Due to their strenuous schedule, I believe the 2019 LSU team is the most accomplished team in college football history.
They mean business in Texas when it comes to high school football, so it’s no surprise that the championship rings that come from claiming a state title are pretty serious.
Carthage High School, which is by the eastern border of the state near Shreveport, Louisiana, won its seventh state championship in football last fall. Members of the team received their 4A DI state title rings on Tuesday, and they are something.
The rings the players received are the ones that said “North” on them. Drake’s custom ring features the old Raptors dinosaur mascot.
The rings are the biggest and most valuable ever made, according to Josh Lewenberg. They contain more than 650 diamonds.

Even fans who attended the home opener received replica rings.

Drake, a Toronto native, is a huge fan of the team and official ambassador. His partnership with the franchise included naming the practice facility after his company. He was seated courtside for the team’s home playoff games and got fans fired up at “Jurassic Park” during road games. Drake even became a big talking point throughout the postseason due to his involvement in multiple controversies.
The rings are made of 10-karat white gold. They include 219 diamonds and 17 rare green sapphires, according to the team’s website.
There are some very cool features of the ring, such as the words from the fight song “Fly, Eagles Fly” on the outer band, and a dog mask on the inside of the ring to represent the underdog. There is even a tribute to the “Philly Special” play.
This is the Eagles’ first Super Bowl championship, so they absolutely had every reason to go all-out with the rings.
The New England Patriots received their Super Bowl rings on Sunday evening at a private party at team owner Robert Kraft’s house.
The rings are the largest ever for a Super Bowl winner and feature 205 diamonds. The four Vince Lombardi Trophies won by the franchise are featured on the face of the ring, along with the team logo. The team’s motto, “Do your job,” is written on the side of the ring, along with the 28-24 final score from their victory over the Seattle Seahawks. On the inside of the ring is the quote “We are all Patriots” from Kraft, whose signature appears below the words.
