In the heart of the Mile-High City, before the NBA season opener, the Denver Nuggets received their 2023 Championship diamond rings, created by the ingenious artisans at Jason of Beverly Hills. These rings, instantly becoming a piece of sports history that transcends traditional design, symbolize the Nuggets’ championship aspirations reaching new heights. The rings feature two groundbreaking design elements, glistening in natural diamonds, set to redefine championship jewelry standards.
With a simple flick of the lever at the ring’s top, the digits “1967” seamlessly transform into “2023,” a dynamic representation of the team’s enduring journey from its origins to the present. This innovative feature is coupled with a ring-top background that magically shifts from vibrant blue to pristine white natural diamonds, capturing the evolution of the Nuggets’ history.
The ring’s side harbors an exciting secret: a concealed, retractable compartment unveils the 2023 Denver Nuggets Championship banner. It’s a delightful surprise, symbolizing the team’s triumphant journey to the peak of the NBA.
Jason Arasheben, CEO of Jason of Beverly Hills, expressed his enthusiasm for the project: “I really wanted to make the ring for the Nuggets, challenging my team to come up with features we knew others just wouldn’t think of that would help set our design apart. We got player feedback during summer league and were able to include two new design elements that make this ring stand out from anything ever seen before in Championship jewelry.”
The ring’s design boasts numerous other meaningful elements. It incorporates over 16 carats of natural diamonds, rubies, and blue sapphires, echoing the Nuggets’ signature colors and the 16 postseason victories that ushered them into championship glory.
At the ring’s core, the Larry O’Brien trophy stands proudly, an iconic emblem of the Nuggets’ 2023 NBA Championship. The word “Nuggets” is meticulously inscribed in natural yellow diamonds alongside the team’s iconic pickaxes, a nod to their resolute spirit.
Both sides of the ring feature an intricate ‘golden nugget’ texture, symbolizing the team’s identity. One side boldly showcases the words “WORLD CHAMPIONS” along with the Denver Nuggets’ retro logo and their regular season record. On the flip side, you’ll find the player’s name and number, paired with the team’s rallying cry, “BRING IT ON.” “5280” graces the upper and lower edges of the ring, an homage to Denver’s lofty elevation above sea level, an emblem of the city’s unique identity.
The inside of the ring is etched with the team’s remarkable playoff series records, a constant reminder of their extraordinary season. A single row of 15 stones above “WORLD CHAMPIONS” signifies the 15 intense playoff battles fought at Ball Arena during the season, and 24 gleaming natural yellow diamonds artfully set atop “NUGGETS” symbolize the team’s 24-year history at Ball Arena. Lastly, a wreath of 89 rubies adorns the ring’s perimeter, signifying the astounding 89 points that the Nuggets’ ironclad defense held their opponents to in the championship-clinching final game.
