Hall of Fame
CLASS OF 2018
All three honorees in the inaugural class of the Houston Sports Hall of Fame have a 34 on their Hall of Fame ring – an homage to the legendary number 34 they all wore during their playing careers.
The rings, designed by Fred Cuellar of Diamond Cutters International, have 2.5 carats of diamonds and gemstones, including 75 full-cut round investment grade white diamonds and 24 princess cut stones that comprise the 34s, but all have different colors.
Hakeem Olajuwon’s ring is Houston Rockets red and features 24 princess-cut rubies. Since Olajuwon cannot wear gold because of his Muslim faith, his ring is silver and platinum. His ring is a size 11.
