Prime Minister Anthony Albanese Joins Affinity Diamonds as Guest Designer of the NRL Grand Final Rings 2023
We are pleased to announce the 2023 NRL Men’s and Women’s Grand Final Rings have been designed by Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.
Each year, our Founder and CEO of Affinity Diamonds, Sam Rahme, gives the honour of designing the ring to a prominent Australian. Over the years, the guest designers have included Ray Warren, Police Commissioner Mick Fuller and Johnathan Thurston.
This years design was truly inspired in honour of Australia, “The design I have chosen gives a nod to our Australian national flower, the Golden Wattle
and includes yellow sapphires. This is the first time these stones have been used and I know the players will wear these rings with pride.” Prime Minister Albanese said.

“The design he has chosen is truly unique. The ring has player numbers engraved on one side and on the opposing side it has a kangaroo and emu. The inclusion of these native animals represents an admired virtue of rugby league players of never taking a backward step.”
