PHOTO: Pittsburgh Penguins 2017 Stanley Cup Championship Rings

Tell the Pittsburgh Penguins to leave some diamonds for the rest of us.
After winning the franchise’s second consecutive Stanley Cup Championship, the players were awarded with a championship ring that features 199 hand-set diamonds.
The gaudy ring was designed by Jostens jewelers and presented at a ceremony on Monday evening.

The Penguins ring features a number of nods to the success that the franchise has endured. Notably, the words “Back 2 Back” are on one side of the ring, along with a diamond encrusted trophy case on the other side.
On the face of the ring is the Penguins mascot with a number five in his eyes, meant to represent the five championships the club has won.
This marks the second time the Penguins have won back-to-back championships in their history, and their third in eight seasons. Members of the team with three Stanley Cup wins each got three extra diamonds on the back of the ring, while Mario Lemieux received five.
Lemieux is a former player for the Penguins and their current owner.
