14 SEPT. 24, 2018 BLUE & GOLD ILLUSTRATED UNDER THE DOME THE BIG PICTURE RING OF HONOR Earlier this month in a surprise ceremony at a local Ruth's Chris Steak House, the Notre Dame's women's basketball team had their desserts served with the 2018 national title rings. Baron Championship Rings produced the 80- to 83-gram rings with a stone count of 140 clear cubics, 36 green cubics and one custom cut emerald spinel. Each ring was individually drafted and 3D printed, a first for an NCAA women's national championship basketball team. The words "national championship" in all capital letters surround the green shamrock. The NCAA Final Four logo and 2018 are on the left shoulder and "Fighting Irish" surround the championship tro- phy on the right shoulder. Each player had her name and number customized on it, plus could choose her own engraving inside of it. PHOTOS BY COREY BODDEN
