The Super Bowl ring is the most recognizable ring in the world of sports championship jewelry. From the time every football player steps into the NFL, winning the Super Bowl is the ultimate goal. Once they get that ring, it solidifies their dreams.

Few people ever have the opportunity to earn one of these collectibles. Which is a big reason why they are so special. The designs of these rings have really came along way. The Green Bay Packers ring from Super Bowl I is primitive compared to the ornate designs today.

Most people don’t know that the NFL pays for 150 rings for the Super Bowl winner. Although it does put limits on what can be spent on them. If a team desires more than the 150 rings, they are responsible for paying for the extras.

Spending limits don’t really affect the quality of the rings. Companies lower prices significantly to be competitive.  Having the Super Bowl ring on your company’s repertoire makes quite the statement.

Look Back at Super Bowl Championship Rings in NFL History

The Jostens company has designed many of the Super Bowl rings. You might recognize this company as one that designed your class ring. They also do a lot of other high school and college sports championship rings.

As far as a dollar and cents figure goes, the league pays up to $5,000 per ring.  Plus adjustments for increases in gold and diamonds. You probably didn’t know that the NFL also pays for 150 pieces of jewelry for the losing team. These pieces of jewelry can only cost up to one-half the price of the Super Bowl ring.

All Super Bowl rings are adorned with gold and diamonds. The design of the ring is often used to symbolize something about the team that earned it. The 1991 NY Giants have two big diamonds on the face of their Super Bowl ring to signify the team’s second title. The 2015 Patriots Super Bowl ring has four large diamonds on the face in the form of Lombardi Trophies. Signifying their four Super Bowl championships.
