By this time in any other year, basketball fans would have seen the 2020 NBA champions crowned. It's not all doom and gloom, though. After a long wait, with players spending the last few weeks in an isolation bubble in Orlando, Florida, the NBA begins again tomorrow. How better to celebrate the return to the hardwood than with a championship ring?
Originating in the 1930s, tradition ensures that each member of a professional North-American sports team receives a large, diamond-encrusted ring in lieu of the single trophy that goes to the team as a whole. These rings are loud, ostentatious, and leave no room for guessing that the wearer is a champion of some sort. They also make a great summer accessory.
While we don’t all have the dedication or sporting prowess to earn a real championship ring, labels like Rhude, Tom Wood, and COMME des GARÇONS hate to leave people out. Standing in stark opposition to minimal men’s jewelry, these rings act as a centerpiece for your ensembles, an eye-catching, envy-inspiring final touch to your champion-level outfit.
