The face of the ring depicts the Caps' logo in red and blue enamel -- surrounded by 27 pavé-set diamonds and encircled by 28 rubies -- and the words "Stanley Cup Champions" in yellow gold. The three star-shaped rubies above the logo are inspired by the D.C. flag. Another 157 diamonds create "a cascading waterfall effect" down the sides of the ring's face, a release from the team said.
