CHICAGO – As part of U.S. Soccer’s annual Fan Week, U.S. Soccer Friday announced that players and staff from the USA’s 2015 and 2019 Women’s World Cup champions will receive commemorative championship rings during the upcoming holiday season.

“The achievements of this group of players will go down in history and provided our country with some of the most memorable sporting moments of the last decade,” U.S. Soccer president Cindy Parlow Cone said in a statement. “We are proud to provide these rings to players and staffs who worked so hard to bring these championships back to the United States.”

The production of the rings was delayed, partially impacted by the global pandemic.

U.S. Soccer partnered with Charles & Colvard, a globally recognized fine jewelry company based in North Carolina, to create the rings and solicited player feedback in the design process.

The USWNT defeated Japan, 5-2, in the 2015 Women’s World Cup final in Vancouver, Canada and four years later downed the Netherlands, 2-0, in the 2019 Women’s World Cup final in Lyon, France to add the third and fourth stars, respectively, to the team’s crest.

The unique and dazzling rings will serve as forever reminders of the historic achievements of those teams, which number 34 players.

The oval-shaped ring for 2015 is set in 10K white gold. The top of the ring features the U.S. Soccer Federation crest with three stars above the shield to represent the Women’s World Cup wins in 1991, 1999 and 2015. The soccer ball in the crest has been replaced by a Caydia Lab Grown Diamond, and the top of the ring features 92 pavé set Forever OneTM Moissanite gemstones. The left panel showcases a raised soccer ball featuring six Caydia Lab Grown Diamonds, and the soccer ball is surrounded by 34 pavé set Caydia Lab Grown Diamonds.

The right panel is personalized for each player, featuring the last name of the ring’s recipient. Her World Cup jersey number is engraved into a raised pentagon-shaped plaque and surrounded by 42 Caydia Lab Grown Diamonds.

The center band around the entire ring commemorates the host country (Canada), the opponent (Japan), the venue (BC Place), the date (July 5, 2015) and the final score (5-2).

The 2019 ring is set in 10K white gold with a 10K yellow gold rim around the entire top, which features a large soccer ball containing six Caydia Lab Grown Diamonds. The soccer ball is surrounded by a halo of 42 Forever One Moissanite gemstones. The top of the ring also includes four Caydia Lab Grown Diamonds, with each stone signifying one of the U.S. four World Cup wins.

The left panel of each ring showcases an inlaid red, white and blue U.S. Soccer Federation crest, and the right panel of each ring is personalized for each player with her last name. Each player’s name is just above her jersey number, which is highlighted in yellow gold and surrounded by 57 Forever One Moissanite gemstones.

Two center bands run around the entire ring. The first band is made of 45 Forever One Moissanite gemstones, and the second band commemorates the host country (France), the opponent (Netherlands), the venue (Stade de Lyon), the date (July 7, 2019) and the final score (2-0).

The finger rest of both the 2015 and 2019 ring is engraved with numbers 1-23 in a circle, recognizing each of the team’s 23 players.
