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.
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.”
