Led by head coach Nick Saban, Alabama cruised to a 14-1 record and their 16th national title in 2015. The Tide’s only blemish was a Week 3 loss at home to Ole Miss. This, however only served to fuel the Crimson the rest of the way as they ran the table and dominated their opposition, including lopsided victories over Top 10 teams like Georgia, Texas A&M and LSU in the regular season. Earning the No. 2 seed in the College Football Playoff based on their SEC title, they defeated No. 3 Michigan State 38-0 in the semi-final and then defeated No. 1 Clemson in a classic final that saw the Tide prevail 45-40.

True freshman Calvin Ridley made an immediate impact for Alabama as a wide receiver, leading the powerful SEC Conference in receptions with 89. Ridley notched two touchdowns and 138 yards receiving in Alabama’s 38-0 victory over Michigan State in the College Football Playoff semi-final victory. Presented here are a collection of three rings that were presented to Calvin Ridley as a member of the 2015 Alabama Crimson Tide’s national championship team.

For winning the SEC title game against Florida, Ridley was presented with this silver Jostens SEC title ring. This ring features the Alabama “A” in a ruby stone with “2015 SEC CHAMPIONS” surrounded by 34 cz stones in a center square. Surrounding the center square are 85 perimeter cz stones in two rows.

On the inside of the ring is etched with the Alabama “A” and a rope with the slogan “HOLD THE ROPE” and the Jostens LTM copyright.

The next ring is a large gold ring that features the Alabama “A” in cz stones outlined in a ruby setting. A football shaped center has the CFB trophy with a large cz stone at the top with six cz stones on the perimeter of the football shape and four individual ruby stones on the corners. “NATIONAL” and “CHAMPIONS” run vertically on each side. The left shank has “RIDLEY”, the Alabama and Clemson logos with the score “45” and “40” underneath.
