The Nats unveiled their 2019 World Series Championship rings, complete with Baby Shark on the interior holding the Commissioner’s Trophy!
Crafted in 14-karat white and yellow gold, the top of the ring boasts the team’s Curly W, made from 30 custom-cut genuine rubies to represent the 30 runs the team scored in their four victories over the Houston Astros in the World Series.
Surrounding the logo are 58 pavé-set diamonds, while “WORLD CHAMPIONS” is inscribed above the logo and below it, set with 32 custom-cut genuine sapphires to represent the sum total of the walk-off wins by the 2019 Nationals (7), shutout wins (13), longest winning streak (8 games), and playoff rounds won (4).
An additional 108 diamonds are featured along the ring top, representing the number of regular-season and postseason wins (105), plus one diamond for the World Series title, and two additional diamonds as a nod to the franchise’s dual history as the Montreal Expos and Washington Nationals.
