The Lakers aren't the only ones to get fancy champion rings
recently. World Sport Bike champion Ben Spies
recently picked up his own championship bling during a visit to the post-race SBK Paddock Show. Italian jewelry company Circuiti Gioelli of Novara
created a WSB champion ring to be given to the winner. No time delay here, just half-an-hour after race 2 had assured Ben's 2009 triumph, the ring was already been engraved with his name and was ready for the presentation.
The ring is in white 18K gold and diamonds with the SBK logo rendered in rubies and sapphires. It is engraved with the words '2009 World Champion' and is studded with 94 diamonds, 28 sapphires and 20 rubies. It is worth around 30,000 Euros.
