History of Championship rings

The first championship rings date back to the late 19th century, when the Montreal Hockey Club received what resembled a wedding band after their 1893 championship. From the 20th century, the awarding of championship rings spread across different sports leagues in North America. With the first World Series ring given to the members of the New York Giants following their victory in the 1922 World Series over the New York Yankees. Since then, rings became an annual custom and every World Series champions team has been awarded with individual championship rings.

While the rings grew in size and glamour over the course of the 20th century, the process for creating them remained relatively stable. Ring producers relied on hand-drawn models of the rings along with molds of various hand sizes, creating an inexact science for both the producers and teams alike. But recent innovations have changed the ring-making game altogether. With the use of 3D printers, the design and production of title rings has been expedited, creating a world of possibilities 

Although not commonly seen, but with the rapid spread of the trend, and the emergence of league cups and championships in different sports in Nigeria and Africa, this stylish manner of commemorating athletic achievements has become a part of sports symbolism in the continent.  

Today, Madewear’s championship rings are crafted from high quality metals and designed to adequately highlight the individual and collective achievements of accomplished sports teams.
