The Pro Football Hall of Fame and Kay® Jewelers, the Official Provider of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence, will honor Class of 2021 member JOHN LYNCH at a special halftime ceremony Monday, Nov. 22.

During the “Monday Night Football” matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New York Giants, Lynch will receive his Ring of Excellence. Retired Hall of Fame President & Executive Director David Baker will be on hand at Raymond James Stadium for the ceremony. The game is scheduled to kick off at 8:15 p.m. ET.

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. Each living Enshrinee from the Class of 2021 received his Hall of Fame Gold Jacket and unveiled his Bronzed Bust during the 2021 Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls in early August.

All three representations of membership in sports’ most exclusive club will be displayed during the special presentation for Buccaneers fans to pay tribute to Lynch. 

HALL OF FAME RING OF EXCELLENCE

The Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is created by Kay® Jewelers. 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.
  • Lynch’s Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is customized to reflect his unique career. A likeness of his Bronzed Bust, along with “Safety” and “1993-2007” (his years in the NFL) appear on one side, while “Lynch,” the Pro Football Hall of Fame logo and “Class of 2021” are included on the other.
  • Additionally, a special arbormark (or engraving) appears on the inside of the ring – 350 – which is his Enshrinee number.
