Giants unveil Super Bowl Ring

New York Giants Super Bowl Ring

It looks as if New York Giants veteran Michael Strahan will get his wish of a 10 table Super Bowl ring. You see Strahan wanted to someone 10 tables away in a restaurant to be able to see the ring.

The Giants unveiled the design of their Super Bowl championship ring on Tuesday it will be a white gold with 1.5 carats of diamonds in it.

The ring’s top is covered in diamonds and features three Super Bowl trophies accented with marquise diamonds signifying the Giants’ Super Bowl XXI, XXV and XLII victories. The team’s “NY” logo is in bead set round diamonds, while “World Champions” is emblazoned in raised letters on the top and bottom bezel, with channel set diamonds on left and right bezel.

The ring’s shanks celebrate the Giants’ season, noting the team’s “Eleven Straight on the Road,” the NFL shield; and player name, along with player number in raised letters appear on one shank.

The final score, “Super Bowl XLII,” date (02.03.08) and ‘AZ’ appear on the other shank.

“There was some discussion about maybe one of the rings was too big,” said center and team captain Shaun O’Hara, who was among group of players and team executives who designed the ring with officials from Tiffany and Co.

“I threw out the fact that it was a big win, it was a huge win, so the ring should be designed accordingly,” O’Hara said. “Michael (Strahan) said it best when he said he wanted a 10-table ring. I think everybody is going to be very pleased with the design. It is very clean, very classy, but at the same time it is very strong.”

The total price of the ring was not disclosed. The rings will be presented later this spring in a ceremony to players and coaches.

  1. So you are buying one of those for everyone who comments right? Seems only fair to me.

    Good god, that thing is huge. Maybe I’ll try stealing the kicker’s ring if I see him around the city.

    I used to hang out with some of the Giants back in the 90s and their Super Bowl 25 rings were huge. I also met Tuna a couple of times and he had his Super Bowl 21 ring on and it looked like some massive piece of cheap crap. This ring looks beautiful.

      I’m just curious, am I the only one that thinks the ring looks unfinished…white gold, white diamonds…no color? I think the NY should have had some sapphires or blue stones of some type….of all the super bowl rings…in my opinion, and it’s just my opinion…this ring may be huge, but blah…Tom
