Phillies’ 13.5 carat diamond NL championship rings have game-used baseball leather inside

The Philadelphia Phillies took a little extra time before Sunday’s home game against the Cincinnati Reds to hand out National League championship rings to their players and staff.

While the Phillies fell to the Houston Astros in six games in last year’s World Series, the fans at Citizens Bank Park were happy to join in celebrating their surprising run to the NL pennant.

During the on-field ceremony, a total of 41 rings were presented to 29 players and 12 coaches.

According to the team, each ring contains leather from a game-used baseball from World Series Game 5 last November in Philadelphia. The ring was designed by Jason of Beverly Hills.

“Every season has a story, and we wanted this ring to celebrate the story of an amazing season by an amazing team,” Jason Arasheben, CEO of Jason of Beverly Hills, said in a statement released by the team. “The Phillies have delivered a historic ring that screams ‘WE APPRECIATE YOU.'”.
