It’s officially SEC Championship ring season, Georgia fans.
The Bulldogs completed their 2017 Revenge Tour by defeating Auburn 28-7 in the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta, the program’s first conference title since 2005.
And now the players know what their conference-winning jewelry will look like, and it is sweet.
“It is an honor to be named the official designer of the University of Georgia’s SEC Championship ring,” said Jeff Drees, president of Herff Jones, in a release as part of the Friday ring announcement. “Our team always looks forward to creating products that contain special meaning, and we are thrilled about this partnership as well as the opportunity it brings to help the Bulldog players enjoy and commemorate their achievement.”
Each ring will be personalized with each player and coach’s name, along with the 28-7 final score, and the “ATD,” mantra, which fans know as Attack The Day, one of many popular slogans that defined the 2017 Georgia season.
Further description of the rings from Herff Jones:
“The top of each champ ring features a red UGA logo with a CZ encrusted inlay. One side of each ring showcases player names and an image of the Bulldog mascot. The other side of the ring presents a gold SEC logo and the date of the 2017 championship game.”

The SEC Championship sent the Bulldogs to their first ever appearance in the College Football Playoff, where they faced the Oklahoma Sooners in the Rose Bowl. Georgia prevailed in double overtime in the greatest football game of the season and one of the best ever.
Georgia then came up on the losing end in overtime of the National Championship Game against Alabama one week later, falling just shy of the brightest ring of them all.
But with the reigning coach of the year in Kirby Smart and the No. 1 recruiting class in the 2018 cycle, everyone who’s associated with or a fan of the Georgia football team should feel good about more big rings in the Bulldogs’ future.
