Wow…Just beautiful!

NBA.com: Laker gold — Most rings are 14-karat gold but the Lakers’ high-profile jeweler, Jason of Beverly Hills, created a special batch of 15-karat Laker gold to commemorate their 15th NBA championship. The ring is made of both white and yellow gold and was built from seven different parts that had to be assembled. Most rings are built as one unit.

Bling that’ll blind — The ring is comprised of 15 diamonds weighing in at 2.85 carats.

Home court advantage — The Lakers’ rings mirror the shape of the exterior of their home arena, the Staples Center. When viewed from the side, you can see the “roof” and “sides” of the Lakers’ home court.

Personalization — In the past every player has had their name and number on the side of their ring. The Lakers went a step above that and laser engraved the image of each player’s face on his ring.

Lock-down defense — Each ring boasts a hand-selected, diamond-engraved “L”. The “L” is placed in a different position on each player’s ring and is only viewable with a high-powered microscope. This helps authenticate each players piece. For further security and authentification, every ring has a serial number which is stored in a database that only the Lakers themselves and the jeweler can access.

Hollywood packaging, too — Each ring will be presented in an oversized box roughly the size of a watch box. When opened, each box has two built-in LED spotlights that shine on the ring. Even the ring itself gets royal treatment: it is mounted on a rotating mechanical platform.

    I leave a comment each time I like a article on a blog or
    I have something to contribute to the conversation.
    Usually it’s caused by the fire communicated in the article I read. And on this post 2009 Los Angeles Lakers Championship Rings THE 4TH QUARTER. I was moved enough to leave a thought 😉 I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be only me or does it give the impression like some of these remarks come across as if they are coming from brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are posting on additional places, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.
    Could you make a list the complete urls of your public sites like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?
