NRL Grand Final 2022 – Rings of power: NRL premier bling designed by legendary caller Ray Warren
It’s not a premier ring – it’s a miracle!
Legendary commentator Ray Warren may have hung up the twins earlier this year, but he’ll still be there on the day of the grand final after designing the ring that will be presented to the players of the winning team.
“I told them I was a sportscaster – I have no experience designing rings,” Warren said. “But, anyway, now I did.”
Sydney jeweler Affinity Diamonds has created the premier rings, which are worth $10,000 each, over the past eight years.
Around this time, the likes of former Cowboys captain Johnathan Thurston, former police commissioner Mick Fuller and an intensive care nurse during the first year of the pandemic designed the precious jewels.
Warren, who retired on the eve of State of Origin earlier this year, was surprised when he received a call from Affinity Diamonds founder and CEO Sam Rahme, who is a longtime friend of the coach of Manly Des Hasler and also of the club. responsible for qualified equipment.
“Ray is a natural in jewelry design – he has a future,” Rahme said of Warren’s eye for creating jaw-dropping jewelry.
“Every year I choose someone who has done something worthy in the game. Ray has done so much, so in his retirement year we thought he would be perfect. We asked him to come up with something great and blingy that can be worn on special occasions.It has done well.It is a beautiful ring.
