On the eve of Tuesday's trip to Washington D.C. to visit with President Obama, Louisville players each received the perfect accessory to wear to the White House.

Jewel-encrusted championship rings.

Louisville sports information director Kenny Klein tweeted photos Monday morning of the rings, each of which feature a Cardinals logo inlaid in a panel of stones on the front and bracketed by the words "National Champions."

On one side panel is the recipient's name along with a Big East logo and the year. On the other side panel is a national championship logo below the word "Louisville" and above the team's 35-5 record.

Louisville players will meet the president at a ceremony on Tuesday at 2 p.m. EST. They'll then tour the Capitol building as guests of Senator Mitch McConnell.
