The Toronto Argonauts unveiled their Grey Cup rings on Thursday at a private ceremony amid their Week 1 bye. The ring features the club’s boat logo on the face accompanied by a wave of 18 stones, which symbolizes the number of CFL titles the team has won.

The left side of the ring displays Toronto’s skyline with six stars, symbolizing the number of home wins the club had in 2022. The right side features an image of BMO Field, while the inside of the ring has an engraving of the team’s motto, “A three-strand cord is not easily broken,” along with the final score of the 109th Grey Cup, which was 24-23.

“This is a spectacular ring to celebrate a special team and their historic accomplishment last season,” said team president Bill Manning in a statement. “We are grateful to everyone who made this championship possible and to Baron for capturing the story behind the victory with such a stunning ring.”

Each rings contains 308 diamonds, a custom blue sapphire, and is made of 10 carat white gold. The team will present replica Grey Cup rings to the first 10,000 fans who enter BMO Field for their home-opener on June 18 against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

“The journey to winning a championship is one that requires countless hours of hard work and sacrifice but the reward stays with you forever,” said general manager Michael ‘Pinball’ Clemons. “A championship ring is a constant reminder of a tremendous team accomplishment and this ring literally bonds you with your teammates forever.”

The Argonauts have won 18 Grey Cups over their 150-year history, which ranks first all-time in league history.
