Each 10k gold ring costs $12,018.00 and features 258 round diamonds (5.5 carats). According to Jostens, this limited edition ring will be the closest design to the official player championship ring available for purchase.
The 145 number comes from the jersey numbers of Devante Smith-Pelly (25), Evgeny Kuznetsov (92), Alex Ovechkin (8), and Lars Eller (20) – the players who scored each playoff series game-winning goal.
So far, only select fans have been notified via email with a special login and password.
If you’re me, the $10 ripoff version will do just fine.

ABOUT THE EXCLUSIVITY
The number of rings, 145, and the naming of the Washington Capitals Stanley Cup 145 Limited Edition Ring is centered around the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs four series game winners.
The winning goal in the first round against the Columbus Blue Jackets in Game 6 was Devante Smith-Pelly, #25.
The second round match-up against the Pittsburgh Penguins saw the memorable series clincher scored by Evgeny Kuznetsov goal, #92.
The Conference Finals victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning was clinched by the first goal in game seven by the great 8, Alexander Ovechkin, #8.
A moment that will go down forever in Capitals history, all Caps fans remember where they were when Lars Eller, #20, scored the game winning goal later in the 3rd period vs. the Vegas Knights in game five of the Stanley Cup Final.
When combining these four game winners’ jerseys – 25, 92, 8, 20 – the total of 145 is reached.
