MILWAUKEE — The Bucks showed off their new bling Tuesday night as the NBA season tipped off.

The defending NBA champs received their 2021 championship rings during a special on-court ceremony before the season opener against the Nets.

You can take a close-up look at the rings, which were designed by jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills, by clicking here.

“We wanted to once again rewrite the rules of what a championship ring should be,” said Jason Arasheben, CEO, Jason of Beverly Hills. “We sought to create something that had a bit more versatility than rings of the past. As championship rings have gotten bigger, they have become less and less practical to wear. We addressed this by developing a push button system that allows the players to wear the top of the ring as a pendant, making it a piece of jewelry they can wear every day around their finger or on their neck to celebrate their tremendous season.”

The Milwaukee Bucks Championship ring has 360 diamonds on the top to represent the total wins since ownership purchased the team.

The 16 emerald shaped diamonds on the left side represent the 16 playoff wins during the 2021 NBA Playoffs, with another 16 emerald shaped diamonds on the right side for the 16 division titles in team history.

In total there are approximately 4.14cts of emeralds representing the 414 Milwaukee area code.

The 50 round stones on the inner bezel stand for the 50 years since the team’s last championship win.
