AKRON, Ohio, Feb. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Kay® Jewelers, the number one jewelry store in America, and the Pro Football Hall of Fame are dedicated to honoring the legends who have shaped the game of professional football. Since 2013, Kay has been the Official Jewelry Store of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and has the honor of designing and creating the Ring of Excellence, which is awarded to Hall of Fame inductees. Now, before the big game on February 5th, Kay and the Pro Football Hall of Fame are sharing a special video celebrating the emotion of enshrinement and receipt of the Ring of Excellence.
The video, entitled "Grown Men Cry," features some memorable reactions from several inductees including Brett Favre, Cris Carter, Jerome Bettis and Michael Strahan, amongst others.
"For 100 years we have been dedicated to helping guests celebrate the most important moments in their lives, and the honor of providing the Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is a reflection of the care, attention to detail and commitment to excellence that we work so hard to achieve," said George Murray, chief retail insights and strategy officer, Signet Jewelers. "In celebration of our continued partnership, and in advance of this Sunday's big game, Kay and the Pro Football Hall of Fame are excited to share this special video celebrating the incredible moment when these legends of the game recognize what they have achieved."
The Ring of Excellence is set in 14K yellow gold and has a total diamond weight of 1 ¾ carats – outer diamonds create a stadium effect surrounding the football-shaped diamond center. The unique design reflects the tremendous accomplishment of enshrinement while celebrating each inductee's distinct career. A likeness of each enshrinee's bust, his position and his years in the league are on one side of the ring, while his name and class appear on the other.
