Clemson Receives Three Stunning Championship Rings
When a team wins their respected championship in any collegiate or professional sport, it is tradition for players, coaches and various other staff members to receive championship rings. In Clemson's case, they received three beautiful rings during their spring game on Saturday. The trio of rings included one for their first national championship in 35 years when they defeated Alabama 35-31, their ACC championship win over Virginia Tech and a 2016 College Football Playoff ring.
There was quite a bit of planning that went in to producing these three rings to say the least. The National Championship bling is the first ring to be produced in two-tone and includes a whopping 89 stones to commemorate the the total victories by coach Dabo Swinney's teams over the years. The Clemson Tiger paw is also featured in the center of the ring consisting of diamonds.
The ACC championship ring included matching ACC trophies, which signifies the program's back-to-back ACC crowns and six marquis cut stones which is for Clemson's six top ten winning seasons. The 2016 College Football Playoff Championship ring is the icing on the cake as it includes a football surrounded by diamonds and custom designed panels to signify Clemson's victories over Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl and Bama in the National championship game.
Without question, Clemson is the undisputed champion when it comes to college football and rings. Last time they won a National championship prior to this year was 1981, obviously the program knows how to celebrate in style, and clearly it was worth the wait.
