Making amendments to the highly coveted momento that every rugby player wants on their finger, is a tough going business. The NRL Premiership Ring, a stunning piece of bling, is only awarded to those who complete a victory lap on grand final day with this years 2018 successful Premiers being the Sydney Roosters and the Brisbane Broncos.
Affinity Diamonds continue to be honoured to craft this ring year after year and following the positive response from the players fortunate enough to win a grand final ring last year, only slight changes were needed to be made to this years legacy item.
Fox Sports presenters Yvonne Sampson and Lara Pitt helped design these changes to the 2018 edition of the white gold rings, which each feature 160 black and white diamonds and are individually numbered.
The girls spent time in the workshop looking at previous designs, diamonds, shapes and colours. They suggested a few changes including an octagonal shape for the top with black diamonds in the background to really enhance and showcase the NRL logo and chevron. The final finish looks truly stunning.
The Premiers receive 20 rings – 17 for the winning players, one for the coach and two additional pieces for the winning club to distribute. The governing body also gets a ring to display at the NRL museum at Moore Park.
In addition to 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.
