Kate Upton models Justin Verlander’s gigantic World Series ring (vid)

The Houston Astros on Tuesday were presented with their World Series rings during a pregame ceremony ahead of a 10-6 victory over the Baltimore Orioles at Minute Maid Park. And to call the pieces of championship bling massive would be a drastic understatement.

Additional details about the ring, via the team’s official site.

In this case, 11 custom-cut baguettes that create the iconic “H” in the Astros logo represent the team’s 11 postseason wins. The top of the ring is adorned with 101 diamonds, representing the number of regular-season games won by the Astros in 2017.

When connected with the 11 custom-cut baguettes, the total diamond count reaches 112, the final number of wins the Astros reached to become World Champions. Completing the top of the ring are 56 round diamonds, which encircle the logo and represent the 56 seasons of Astros franchise history leading up to the 2017 World Championship.


But to truly appreciate the gigantic grandeur of the ring, look how ginormous it appears on the hand of Kate Upton, the supermodel wife of Astros pitcher Justin Verlander. Take note of her wedding ring in comparison.


And let’s just add Verlander didn’t opt for the cheap route when buying his bride’s ring, either.
