This weekend I acquired the largest Super Bowl ring ever – the Patriots 2014 championship ring shown in the center below:
The Patriots Superbowl XLIX ring is a whopper – larger than the other winning Super Bowl rings it’s pictured with.
Other than the Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl XLVIII from 2013, shown above left, the championship rings pictured, are the largest Super Bowl rings ever made.
The Packers, Ravens, Steelers ring, and the Patriots Super Bowl ring on the far right are larger than just about all of the Super Bowl rings not pictured, that’s why they are featured in the photo.
The first Super Bowl ring, back from 1966 weighed in at 40 grams of solid gold. Each of the championship rings above, except for the Seahawks ring and Ravens ring, all weigh 100 grams or more. That means these championship rings are 2.5 times heavier than the Packers Super Bowl I ring!
Each of these massive Super Bowl rings were made by Jostens, except for the Seahawks ring which was designed and crafted by Tiffany and Company. Incidentally, the Seahawks ring weighs in at 73.58 grams.
Also of note, the most massive ring shown (ie heaviest) is the Packers Super Bowl XLV ring – weighing in at a jaw dropping 110 grams. It’s 10 grams heavier than the Patriots 2014 Super Bowl ring because it’s made of Platinum which is about 15-20 heavier than 10k gold which the Patriots ring is comprised of.
Finally obtaining a Patriots player 2014 Super Bowl ring was an amazing experience, and you can’t appreciate how big the ring truly is until you hold it and try it on. All of the rings above, even the Seahawks championship ring have become so large and heavy that they are completely uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time. That kind of defeats the purpose of owing a championship ring.
Please remember, I buy championship rings at a moment’s notice. If you would like to discuss selling your championship ring in privacy, please contact me.
