Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 11, 2015
The World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event champion was crowned Tuesday night at the Main Event Final Table in Las Vegas. Joe McKeehen from the USA took home a $7,683,346 cash prize and the WSOP world champion bracelet. Created by Jostens, the leading national custom jewelry designer and producer, the championship bracelet honors the 2015 World Series of Poker Champion.
Custom-created by Jostens’ artisan jewelry team, the bracelet is intricately assembled from over 40 uniquely-cast parts and crafted with 427 grams of white and yellow gold. The entire bracelet features 356 white diamonds totaling 25.5 carats, 626 black diamonds totaling 14.8 carats, and 194 rubies at an outstanding 3.8 carats.
Each link of the bracelet mimics a playing card, perfectly doubled down on both sides of the bracelet. This one-of-a kind design ups the ante by linking a diamond and ruby encrusted band to a show-stopping centerpiece featuring the acronym “WSOP” written in rubies that are set against a backdrop of rows of perfectly placed white diamonds. The centerpiece is punctuated on all sides by a row of black diamonds.
Opening like a locket, the stunning centerpiece bracelet top reveals a hidden compartment designed to house the two winning cards from the player’s final tournament, preserving the winning hand for all time. Joe McKeehen’s bracelet holds an Ace and a Ten.
“The bracelets celebrate a 45-year old competitive tradition, and Jostens is honored to be selected as the official bracelet manufacturer of the WSOP,” said Miran Armutlu, VP Jewelry, Jostens. “In close collaboration with the WSOP we created a brilliant bracelet with an unparalleled custom design that’s as bold and dominating as the players themselves while honoring the symbolic significance of the Main Event bracelet.”
