    The dynasty lives on!

    2009 New York Yankees World Series Championship Ring. The hearts of New Yorkers were broken a second time just weeks after the devastation of 9/11 when the bullet-proof Mariano Rivera shockingly surrendered the 2001 World Series to the Arizona Diamondbacks on a walk-off bloop single, bringing to a conclusion the last great dynasty of the twentieth century. After such a spectacular run of good fortune--1996, 1998, 1999, 2000--most Yankee fans were ill-prepared for the string of first-round playoff exits to follow, and a pathetic exit from the old Stadium in 2008 without any October ball whatsover.

    Presented is the ultimate symbol of the Bronx' return to dominance, one in which they christened the new Stadium just like the old one--with a World Championship conclusion. Much like the marching orders supplied to GM Brian Cashman when it comes to personnel, the Yankees spared no expense in the creation of this gem-encrusted treasure, boasting 109 brilliant cut diamonds (one for each year of Yankees existence), and four more square step cut diamonds to mark each base of the baseball diamond theme, which contains the classic "NY" logo inset upon a blue stone.

    The fourteen karat white gold body of the ring features the team logo and word "Tradition" on the left shank as well as the recipient's name, a front office staffer. Right shank features the new park in minature with text "World Champions, 2009, Unity." Interior band is stamped "Balfour 14k" and "Yankee Stadium, 2009, Inaugural Season." Ring measures to a size twelve (12). Total weight forty-eight grams (48g.). Mint condition.
