The Red Sox received their 2018 World Series championship rings in a ceremony before their first home game of the season Tuesday afternoon at Fenway Park.

According to The Athletic‘s Jen McCaffrey, the ring planning and design process started the day of the Red Sox’ World Series victory parade in November, when ring sizes for each player were collected.

The rings were crafted in 14-karat white gold. The Red Sox “B” logo is comprised of 21 custom-cut rubies, representing the four World Series titles the Red Sox have won under 17 seasons of ownership by the Fenway Sports Group. The logo is surrounded by 22 custom-cut blue sapphires, representing the 14 postseason games the Red Sox played and the eight home runs they hit during the World Series.

Fourteen channel-set diamonds that accent each side of the ring symbolize the 14 American League pennants the team has won since the franchise’s inception in 1901. In addition, 128 diamonds set across two rows honor the 119 franchise-record wins set in 2018 alongside the nine total World Series titles won by the Red Sox. On the interior of each ring is the date the team clinched the title –“10-28-18” — as well as the words “Damage Done”, evolved from the “Do Damage” rallying cry the team used in the playoffs.
