The 2013 Florida State replica national championship rings are hitting the market. Just because you didn’t line up at left tackle doesn’t mean you can’t own one.
The rings, pieced together in Hong Kong, appear virtually identical to those given to players, coaches and staff, but a lot expensive. 18k gold plated and made of copper (silver rings can also be ordered), the rings featured studded AAA cubic zirconia stones set by hand.
A copy of the ring designed by coach Jimbo Fisher, they have the school logo in the center, the words ‘national champions’ around the edge and the score of the January 6 BCS national championship game on the side.
The rings are solid, weighing 45-60 grams and come with a pretty nice wooden box. The eBay listings allow you to order whatever size you need, usually at a price of around $200.
The 2013 season was one to remember for Seminoles fans. Beating Auburn 34-31 completed FSU’s third national championship season and a perfect 14-0 record. It ended an SEC run of seven straight national titles.
Of course, Florida State fans will remember the great kickoff return by Levonte Whitfield and the heroics of young Jameis Winston as well as the incredible job done by Fisher, whose team dominated Duke in the ACC title game 45-7. They’re wearing their rings already, having been given out at a ceremony in Tallahassee.
“What I want you to do when you put it on – I want you to think about the teamwork you had, the camaraderie you had, the family atmosphere you had and the sacrifices you made to get it,” Fisher told players. “You can’t ever lose the desire, drive and habits that got you that ring.”
The rings are only available from a couple of sellers, who are based overseas but have 100% feedback (rings are typically made outside the US). Click here to see them.
