One of the three physical icons representing the enshrinement of the Class of 2013 – Larry Allen, Cris Carter, Curley Culp, Jonathan Ogden, Bill Parcells, Dave Robinson, and Warren Sapp – will have a new look.
Today, the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Kay® Jewelers announced that the official Hall of Fame ring is being redesigned for only the third time in the Hall of fame’s 50-year history. Kay® Jewelers, a new partner of the Hall of Fame, will unveil later this week images of the ring that is so befitting of this special occasion and the remarkable accomplishments of this year’s inductees.
The Class of 2013 will receive their rings during special ceremonies during the upcoming NFL season in the stadiums of the team for whom he played or coached.
“We are honored to have been selected as The Official Jewelry Store of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and are excited to present the enshrinement rings for the 50th anniversary and the Class of 2013,” said George Murray, senior vice president of marketing, Kay® Jewelers. “In addition to celebrating the elite fraternity that these men are entering, we also wanted the ring design to reflect each enshrinee’s unique career through intricate detail and state-of-the-art craftsmanship.”
“As the number one jewelry store in America, with a proud history of nearly 100 years, it became evident that Kay® Jewelers was the best fit as we looked for a partner to develop the new Hall of Fame rings,” said Dave Motts, vice president – marketing/sponsorship, Pro Football Hall of Fame. “The Hall is absolutely thrilled with the new ring as it represents one of the three physical icons that symbolize the elite status of being a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.”
The new class will receive their Hall of Fame Gold Jackets during Friday’s Enshrinees’ Gold Jacket Dinner in Canton and their bronze bust will be unveiled at the Enshrinement ceremony held in Fawcett Stadium on Saturday night.
