Other interesting details on the championship ring

The ring was designed by Jason Arasheben, the CEO of Jason of Beverly Hills, who has crafted many NBA rings before.

There are a load of hidden Easter Eggs on the ring, including a QR code and its link, which you can find here.

Interestingly, the ring also has a necklace function.

Jason told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel why he decided to do this.

He said: “A lot of players were not able to wear their rings; they weren’t practical. You might take it out on Christmas Eve to show the family, but other than that, they can’t wear it.

“I wanted to create a ring that had more versatility, where a player could wear it and let it be comfortable. This one is just as big as these massive rings, but we developed a technology that allows the ring top to be taken off with a push button system, and the ring top can be converted into a pendant.”
