The Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is one of three iconic symbols, along with the Hall of Fame Gold Jacket and the Bronzed Bust, that represent the elite status of being a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Owens will wear his Hall of Fame Gold Jacket and his Bronzed Bust will be temporarily removed from the Hall of Fame Gallery to make its way to the ceremony.
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 Jewelry Store of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 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.
- Owens’ Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is customized to reflect his unique career. A likeness of his bronzed bust, along with “Wide Receiver” (his position) and “1996-2010” (his years in the NFL) appear on one side while “Owens,” the Pro Football Hall of Fame logo and “Class of 2018” are included on the other.
- Additionally, a special arbormark (or engraving) appears on the inside of the ring, which is Owens’ Enshrinee number 317.
