The New York Giants unveiled their Super Bowl XLVI championship rings Wednesday afternoon, which features a tribute to their past three Super Bowl championships as well as this year’s.
If you look at the photo above, the ring, sported by running back Ahmad Bradshaw, is covered in diamonds and has a little bit of a blue tint to it.
It is made out of white gold, designed by Tiffany & Co., after they received input from multiple Giants executives and players including captains Eli Manning and Justin Tuck.
Here is a closer look at the ring from a press release from the team:
What you couldn’t see from the original photo, you can see above and that’s the 37 blue sapphires to give the blue tint to the ring. The blue color was something different from their 2007 championship ring which only featured white gold and diamonds and the blue tint was something that the players really wanted in this design.
Other cool features of this ring is the final score of this year’s game, a 21-17 win over the New England Patriots, and on the inside of the ring there is the engravings of “Finish” and “All In”, two of their inspirational phrases used during the 2011-2012 season. Along with the four Lombardi trophies, the ring also includes the year of each of those Super Bowl victories (1986, 1990, 2007, 2012).
Many of the Giants players were in attendance during the press conference Wednesday and were happy to put another ring on their finger, even if they will not wear it much. Quarterback Eli Manning echoed that sentiment saying that he only wears the 2007 ring at special team occasions and then puts it away citing its bulkiness.
I’m sure Manning isn’t too bummed to have to deal with another bulky ring on his finger even if that means dealing with the hardware a few times a year.
