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 â€˜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.
