Another Look at New York Giants Super Bowl Rings
Added by Ross Capuana on June 26, 2012.
As most of us know the New York Giants won the 2011 NFL Super Bowl. The Giants won the NFC East as well with a surprisingly mediocre record of 9-7. They went into the playoffs and beat the Atlanta Falcons 24-2, the Green Bay Packers 37-20, and the San Francisco 49ers 20-17. The Giants then went onto the Super Bowl in which they defeated the New England Patriots with a final score of 21-17, earning their spot as Super Bowl champions.
Not only do you earn the title of Super Bowl champions, you also earn things such as a White House visit, salary bonuses, late night talk show cameos, the Lombardi Trophy, and of course the incredibly spectacular and glistening Super Bowl championship ring.
These Super Bowl Rings have been made all the way since Super Bowl I was played by the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs. The Green Bay Packers won this game giving them the first Super Bowl victory and the first Super Bowl rings back in 1966.
You see a lot of athletes now-a-days wearing the “bling” and sporting the latest fashion trends but there is no “bling” or article of clothing that compares to these championship rings. These things are stacked with diamonds, coming in with a total value of $5,000. Of course re-sale comes with a complete different value. Lawrence Taylor for the 1991 New York Giants team sold his ring for $230K!
Tiffany & Co. did an excellent job on these most recent rings. They are loaded with diamonds, usually white gold, and they are given a blue tint representing the New York Giants team colors. As seen in the pictures below, engraved are footballs, and the NY logo. The team name, super bowl number, year, Lombardi Trophy, and “World Champions” are also engraved into the ring making this “bling” the best kind to wear fresh off of a championship victory.
