Chicago Blackhawks Receive Championship Rings
CHICAGO (AP) -- The Stanley Cup-winning Chicago Blackhawks now have their championship rings.

The Minneapolis, Minn.-based jeweler Jostens says it presented the rings to the team during a private Sunday night ceremony in downtown Chicago. The jeweler says the rings feature the Blackhawks logo with diamonds, emeralds and rubies.

It has the words "Stanley Cup" and "Champions" etched on it. Each ring is personalized with team members' names and numbers.

The inside of the rings has writing too. It says "One Goal" and has the playoff series score.

The total? Each ring has 260 diamonds and gemstones for a total 14.68 carats.

The Blackhawks won the NHL championship in June with victories over the Boston Bruins.
