Steelers Get Their Diamond-Covered Rings


ept_sports_nfl_experts-446182119-1244634507The Superbowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers received their rings this week, commemorating their accomplishment. The rings check in at 3.7 ounces each, featuring 63 diamonds (3.61 carats total), the six large diamonds on the face represent the 6 championships the team has won, the 7 diamonds around the top of the logo are for the team’s 7 conference championships, and the bottom 7 are for the 14 team division titles. On one side of the ring is the players name, his uniform number, the Steelers logo and the NFL logo. The other features the 6 Lombardi trophies sitting inside Heinz Field and the Super Bowl XLIII logo along with the game’s final score.

Continuing the recent tradition of making the rings as gaudy and gigantic as possible, these ones even dwarf the ones the Steelers got 3 years ago. Charlie Batch held up the two compared to each other and the old one looked about half the size. “Everybody’s in awe right now,” Batch said. “When everybody opened his box, it was like ‘Wow!'”

I hope the players enjoy their gaudy new baubles as they have NO chance of getting another one so long as Tom Brady remains healthy. I also hope that the Steelers made sure to triple-check everything written on the ring so they don’t have an embarrassing moment like when they learned — 30 years later — that their 1975 rings were erroneously engraved.
