2019 NRL Telstra Premiership Ring
It is the most prized possession in Rugby League, a small symbol of the biggest achievement in the game, a highly coveted momento that every player dreams of wearing on their finger, yet one that is only awarded to those who complete a victory lap on grand final day. And the 2019 successful Premiers, who received this superb piece of bling for the second year in a row, were the Sydney Roosters and the Brisbane Broncos.
This year Affinity Diamonds collaborated with NRL legend Johnathan Thurston. The design of the diamond encrusted ring was based on an original painting by Wayne Martin of Nguram-Bang Aboriginal Art, featuring an emu totem and paying tribute to Thurston’s home and elders in the Gungarri.
Each white gold ring is valued at $10,000, featuring two carats of black and white diamonds (totalling to 150 diamonds on each piece) and is months in the making with Thurston having begun designing with Affinity Diamonds earlier this year.
Fox Sports presenters Yvonne Sampson and Lara Pitt once again worked on the design for the female Premiers.
Alongside the NRL Premiership Rings, Affinity Diamonds also creates the bespoke Hall of Fame ring, the 300 Club ring and all the medals received on both the Grand Final day and at the Dally M Awards prior.
2019 Dally M Awards Red Carpet
In addition to creating the bling for the NRL boys, Affinity Diamonds sparkle was in no shortage on this year’s red carpet at the 2019 Dally M Awards.
According to those in the ‘know’ it was newcomer Mitchell Pearce’s girlfriend Kristen Scott who stole the show in a backless sequinned gold gown, simple makeup and complimentary Affinity Diamonds jewels. Also looking stunningly sexy was the gorgeous Zoe Marshall in a figure hugging sequinned dress, sleek straight hair and smoky eyes, finished off with Affinity Diamonds jewels.
Turning up the glamour and producing some seriously glitzy looks, celebrity stylist and Affinity Diamonds friend Donny Galella ensured that all the ladies behind the players certainly made a statement this year.
