The New Yorks Giants were presented with their Super Bowl XLVI rings on Wednesday evening (May 17) in Manhattan during a private ceremony.
Here’s a look at the Tiffany diamond and sapphire-encrusted Super Bowl rings. They feature four Marquis diamonds in four Lombardi trophies (to represent the franchise’s four titles), 37 blue sapphires and the dates of each Super Bowl title in franchise history.
The inside of the rings include the words “finish” and “all in,” psych-up words used by the team during its 2011 title run. And finally, the shanks have the score of this year’s victory over the New England Patriots, the player’s name and number, and the dates of New York’s other Super Bowl triumphs.
According to reports, the team had some input in the design of the ring. Most specifically, players wanted the color blue to be incorporated. Their last Super Bowl ring (see below, alongside the latest ring) was white gold and diamonds and looked like it could belong to the New Orleans Saints.
“The blue makes it a little different,” Eli Manning said. “We wanted some blue — the Giants are Big Blue. We definitely wanted to get a little blue to spark it up a little bit.”
