Tigers receive sparkling AL title rings


DETROIT -- Comerica Park wasn't the only diamond that caught the Tigers' eyes Saturday. Members of last season's team received their 2012 American League championship rings in a pregame ceremony.

As with their 2006 AL title rings, the team didn't spare the details.

According to a release from ringmaker Jostens, the top of the ring includes the Old English D logo sparkling with 47 round brilliant cut diamonds. The Tigers logo sits on top of a baseball diamond in fire blue spinel stone with more diamonds.

Each ring includes the player's name, the Old English D and the Tigers head logo on one side, outlined with 11 round brilliant cut diamonds -- one diamond for each AL pennant the franchise has won.
