What is becoming one of the most revered traditions in sports will continue for at least another three years, as the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Kay® Jewelers have agreed to extend their long-standing partnership, which includes presentations of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence, through 2023. 

The Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is one of three iconic symbols connected with each Hall of Fame enshrine. It is presented during ceremonies at an NFL game in front of tens of thousands of fans. Along with the Hall of Fame Gold Jacket, created by Haggar, and the Bronzed Bust, it represents the elite status of a player, coach or contributor elected as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

“The Hall's partnership with Kay Jewelers has provided us with an outstanding opportunity to continue to honor the heroes of the game,” said Pat Lindesmith, Chief Partnership Officer & Senior Vice President of Gold Jacket Relations. “Presenting each enshrinee with their Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence created by Kay Jewelers in their home stadium allows these NFL Legends another special moment with their fans.”

In addition to creating the Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence for the living players, coaches and contributors being enshrined each year, Kay Jewelers also will provide limited-edition “Hall of Fame Pendants” to all the partners of the annual class. This stunning and personalized necklace is comprised of a pendant with a circle of diamonds surrounding an image of the Pro Football Hall of Fame building along with an engraving of the year their partner was inducted.

“We are honored to be able to continue this partnership and provide our special touch of quality and craftmanship to the incredible Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence and accompanying pendant,” said Jamie Singleton, Kay Jewelers, Zales and Peoples President. “These players and contributors to the game have brought joy to so many fans and communities around the world, and we are happy to be a small part of their historic journey to greatness.”

Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence

The Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is created by Kay® Jewelers, the No. 1 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 1.75 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.
  • Each enshrinee’s Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is customized to reflect his unique career. A likeness of his Bronzed Bust, along with his position and his years in the NFL appear on one side while his last name, the Pro Football Hall of Fame logo and “Class of (Year)” are included on the other.
  • Additionally, a special arbormark (or engraving) appears on the inside of the ring, which is the enshrinee’s number.
