Since ancient times, it has been a tradition to reward someone for their achievements. The achievements and rewards differed from culture to culture. Nonetheless, the concept remained the same. However, as our world progressed towards the present day, most cultures consider more or less the same things as achievements. But, the types of reward have continued to diversify over time.
For example, since the inception of sporting events, trophies and medals used to be the primary rewards. However, with the growth of the sport, the people involved have tried to differentiate themselves by coming up with unique rewards. Case and point, NBA and NFL. While both these sports offer the usual slew of trophies and medals, they also offer the championship winners something else.
What is that something else, you wonder? Rings duh. They are not any ordinary run of the mill rings either mind you. These are some really well crafted and special stuff.
Why are we talking about these rings?
Well, the rings are being discussed because Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba had something similar made for their team. They contacted a jeweler in Los Angeles and created a ring with France’s colors and French Football Federation’s crest on it.
Why did they do that?
It was done in order to celebrate France’s second ever world cup win till date. The French Team decimated Croatia by 4-2. They won the final with the decisive goal being scored by Griezmann.
In order to celebrate such a momentous occasion, Paul and Antoine felt that they required something special. Hence why they went for the ring. After all, such an item would not only look unique, it will also remind them of the landmark that they all achieved together.
