Do you want one of the LA Kings Stanley Cup rings?

Next Saturday afternoon the Kings will hoist their first ever Stanley Cup Championship banner to the rafters of Staples Center. All fans in attendance will also receive a commemorative mini-banner when they enter the building.

Additionally, as part of the opening ceremonies down on the ice, the players and coaching staff will be given their 2012 Stanley Cup Championship ring.

Now, later in the season, the Kings will give away free replicas of those rings at a home date still to be determined.

But, how would you like to get a REAL ring?

Details are a bit sketchy on this at the moment. Yet, from what we’ve been able to gather, the Kings have produced five extra rings. One each will be given to the same four charities they’ve partnered with McDonald’s to donate $1 Million to. The idea is for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California, Boys and Girls Club of America and City Year Los Angeles to each auction the rings off to the highest bidder – with the money going to that specific charity.

The fifth ring will be given to the Kings Care Foundation. Again, they’ll auction it off to the highest bidder.

We were told all five of those rings will be personalized with the winner’s name, just like the ones the players will be receiving.

We know what some of you are thinking right now. That’s all great and wonderful, but the bidding might be a bit out of your price range. Well, how about this then…

Supposedly, within the next week or so, Tiffany & Co., one of the world’s premier jewelers, will begin selling a high quality limited edition replica of the same ring for about $1200.

If none of those ideas hit your price point though, make sure to get the free one the Kings will pass out later this season.

UPDATED – JANUARY 19 and 22, 2012

The Tiffany website is now accepting orders for items from their LA Kings Stanley Cup collection, including the the sterling silver replica ring first reported in the story above.  In the end, it was given a price point of $1000, yet it’s not an exact copy of the real ring – with the most noticeable change being it doesn’t feature the Stanley Cup down the center – see here.

As announced earlier this week, the Kings will give away a different replica version of the ring to all fans in attendance at the next home game, January 28 vs. Vancouver.

Also, we’ve removed the original image used in this story and can now share what the ring actually looks like that was given to the players today…
