TSU Basketball SWAC Championship Rings September 18, 2013 By Uptown Diamond As the Official Jeweler for Texas Southern University Athletics, Uptown Diamond was recently honored to present custom-crafted creations to a number of remarkable TSU athletes. These exceptional pieces are our initial offerings as part of a five-year engagement as TSU Athletics’ exclusive jeweler. On August 31, TSU hosted longtime rival Prairie View A&M University for the Labor Day Classic season opener football game at BBVA Compass Stadium. Before thousands of roaring fans, Uptown Diamond presented stunning SWAC championship rings to both the men’s and women’s basketball teams. Our imaginative designers and innovative 3D printer allowed Uptown Diamond to craft one-of-a-kind masterpieces for each team. The TSU rings are signature in design, with the men’s championship ring featuring a basketball court on its face. Components of each piece were selected to meet the rigorous NCAA guidelines for championship ring cost while displaying unparalleled style and quality. Rather than using pot metal, the industry standard for college sports rings, Uptown Diamond fashioned the TSU pieces with 925 Argentium silver. The sparkling stones gracing the faces of the rings are high quality hand-cut cubic zirconia. We are confident that these deserving TSU athletes will be as proud to wear their rings as Uptown Diamond was to create them!
