Since the 1986 season, no team has won more Super Bowl rings than the New York Giants. Here’s the internet’s first picture of all four Super Bowl rings in one photograph.

The New York Giants Super Bowl Rings 4 Championship Rings

Below is the scoop on each ring:

On the far left is the Giants first Super Bowl ring, from their win against the Denver Broncos 39-20 in Super Bowl XXI.

The top of the ring is a simple but classic design – one of the nicest Super Bowl rings ever made. The ring was made by Jostens and is solid 10K gold. It’s approximately 44-45 grams. It contains one large marques diamond and several smaller diamonds that make up the single Lombardi trophy.

Moving from left to right, the second ring is the New York Giants Super Bowl XXV ring. In one of the most thrilling super bowl games ever seen, the Giants held on to beat the Buffalo Bills 20-19. The ring was made by Balfour and contains two large marques diamonds, symbolizing the team’s second Super Bowl Championship. The ring is slightly larger than the XXI ring and weighs in at 47 grams and 10k solid yellow gold.

The ring third from the left is the Giants Super Bowl XLII ring. The heavily favored and undefeated New England Patriots were upset by the Giants 17-14 in a thrilling game.

The Super Bowl XLII ring is made of 14K white gold and weighs in at 71 grams. It contains three marquise diamonds inside of three Lombardi trophies to celebrate the teams third Super Bowl Championship. In a nod to their sensational road record that season, the team placed the phrase “Eleven Straight on The Road” on the side of the ring.

The ring on the far right is the Giants fourth and final championship ring. The Super Bowl XLVI ring weighs in at a whopping 92 grams and is also produced by Tiffany. The numerous blue rubies and blue stone on top is a visual improvement over the Giant’s last Tiffany Super Bowl ring. The ring is made of 14K white solid gold.

In an unusual move, the top of the ring does not have any wording at all. The usual wording found on championship rings was placed lower, and encircles the top of the ring. The normal wording is all there, but is more easily viewed from the sides of the ring, not the top.

The New York Giants have used three different ring manufacturers to make their Super Bowl rings. If you want to count championship rings before the super bowl, then the number increases to four: Jostens made the first super bowl ring, Balfour the second, and Tiffany made the third and fourth.

Dieges & Clust made the 1956 championship ring and I will have pictures that include some of the Giants championship rings in an upcoming blog.
