Vanessa Bryant now has six very special rings from husband Kobe Bryant.
Bryant has won five championships with the Los Angeles Lakers, and so, he has five championship rings to show it.
On Wednesday night, Kobe’s wife Vanessa posted a photo of her wearing the rings on Instagram.
Vanessa first indicated that Kobe gifted her all five of his original championship rings. She later added a comment, clarifying that the rings she is wearing in the photo are exact copies of Bryant’s, but in her size.
Only 5 more games left!!! Had to post the 5 Championship rings my boo-boo gave me. So awesome to have been a part of his journey. (For those that think this is Kobe’s set of rings: This is a set of Championship rings my husband gifted to me. His ring size is twice the size of mine. Obviously, this is NOT HIS SET OF CHAMPIONSHIP RINGS….. My thumb ring would never fit his pinky). #OBVI

It’s pretty common for players to get their wives championship rings after they’ve won the NBA title. Savannah Brinson, LeBron James’ wife, also has one.
Most teams don’t say how much each ring costs but the two rings Bryant gifted his parents sold at auction for $100,000 each. This is actually much cheaper than some of Vanessa’s other pieces. Three days after it was announced that he had been charged with sexual assault in Colorado, Bryant gave his wife a diamond ring worth a reported $4 million.
