The Evolution of the Super Bowl Ring

Feb 6, 2014

We’ve been waiting in anticipation to see what this year’s superbowl ring will look like, and while it’s not as exciting as when the Baltimore Ravens won – we’re still happy for the Seattle Seahawks on their win this past Sunday.

While doing some research on Super Bowl rings, I couldn’t help but notice how much more elaborate they’ve become since the first one was award to the Green Bay Packers in 1967.

If you didn’t know, winners of the Super Bowl  work with a company commissioned to design the ring and the NFL gives teams an allowance of $5,000 per ring, with the team picking up any additional cost.

While many teams go for a more extravagant look in their Super Bowl rings, some still settle for more modest models. For example, our own Baltimore Ravens’s Super Bowl ring XLVII contained 243 round cut diamonds and had a total weight of 380 grams. Teams like the Dallas Cowboys have also been responsible for much of the extravagant evolution of Super Bowl rings.

However, teams such as the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants have traditionally settled for more modest models.

You can see the entire evolution of the Super Bowl ring here.   Samuelson’s Diamonds owns a 1983 Baltimore Orioles World Series ring but one day we hope to acquire a Super Bowl ring, especially a Ravens one.

Whose Super Bowl ring are you a fan of?
