Designed and produced by Tiffany & Co., the 2010 World Series Champions Ring is a classic, elegant piece of fine-jewelry with homage to the rings from earlier eras. The original inspiration was the Giants 1933 World Series ring with a modern interpretation.

Now in its 20th year, the Giants Community Fund works to enrich the lives of underserved youth through the Junior Giants leagues and other community initiatives. Junior Giants is a free, non-competitive, co-ed baseball program for underserved youth ages 5-18.
