The Pro Football Hall of Fame and Kay® Jewelers, the Official Provider of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence, will join in honoring Hall of Famer Gil Brandt on Sunday, Oct. 6 when the Dallas Cowboys host the Green Bay Packers.

Fans at the Week 5 matchup will witness Brandt receive his Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence during a special halftime presentation. The Hall’s President & CEO David Baker will present Brandt with the Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence. The game is slated to kick off at 4:25 PM ET at AT&T Stadium.

The Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is one of three iconic symbols, along with the Hall of Fame Gold Jacket created by Haggar, and the Bronzed Bust, that represent the elite status of being a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Brandt received his Hall of Fame Gold Jacket and unveiled his Bronzed Bust during the 2019 Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls in early August.

“I'm here today because of the great organization like the Dallas Cowboys that had an owner, a general manager, and a head coach who believed in my ability to find talented players and build a roster,” Brandt shared during his Enshrinement speech on August 3. “The great players we were fortunate enough to draft and sign are the reason the Cowboys have won five Super Bowls. And I've seen 25 of these players that we drafted are right here in the Hall of Fame today as players, coaches, and contributors, is what it is. And I want to say this, I'm lucky to be involved in this great enterprise, and I thank all these coaches and players on the staff that we've worked with all the time. I'm so proud of being a part of a continuing impact of the National Football League.”

HALL OF FAME RING OF EXCELLENCE

The Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is created by Kay® Jewelers, the number one jewelry store in America and the Official Provider of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence. The spectacular Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is set in 14K gold with a total diamond weight of 1¾ carats. However, it is much more than a beautiful piece of jewelry. Intricate details on the ring reflect the special significance of enshrinement.

  • The outer diamonds create a “stadium” effect surrounding the football-shaped diamond center.
  • The vibrant blue gemstone was selected both for appearance and meaning, as blue is often associated with confidence, power and integrity – all traits of these incredible legendary football icons.
  • Brandt’s Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is customized to reflect his unique career. A likeness of his Bronzed Bust, along with, “Contributor,” and “1960-Present” (his years in the NFL) appear on one side while “Brandt,” the Pro Football Hall of Fame logo and “Class of 2019” are included on the other.
  • Additionally, a special arbormark (or engraving) appears on the inside of the ring, which is Brandt’s Enshrinee number 321.
