What you might not know is that trophy rings have a long and celebrated history, especially in North America.

What is a trophy ring, exactly?

A trophy ring, also known as a championship ring, is a collectible memento. Trophy rings are individually awarded to coaches and team players - a distinction from a traditional trophy typically awarded to the team as a whole. Coaches and players can be gifted rings for a more personal symbol of their victory. 

As previously mentioned, trophy rings are pretty unique to North American sports. Football, basketball, and baseball rings are extremely popular; the winning team most often pays for and distributes them.

What’s the difference between a trophy ring and a team ring? 

The main difference between the two is that, while team rings are meant to commemorate the athlete's time on a team, a trophy ring (or championship ring) is awarded only after a championship victory. The main purpose of a trophy ring is to commemorate the event and the win.
