New Style Championship Ring Display For Sale on eBay

July 16, 2015


Here’s another great example of a ring display that can be purchased to show off real or replica championship rings:

Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl Ring Display


I really like this display.

It looks custom made for five championship rings, not four, not six.

It’s for sale on eBay and here’s what I like and don’t like about this display:

The Cowboys emblem is too big and prominent in the front and perhaps, at certain angles blocks views of the championship rings and Super Bowl tickets.

I love the fact that the designer incorporated Super Bowl tickets into the display. It ties the on-lookers back to the specific game better than the championship rings do.   That’s not a knock on the Super Bowl rings, it’s just that the ticket designs, made many months before the big game, usually tie in the host city, the stadium and the date of the game better than the rings do.

Next, the rings are spaced out and patterned in a nice configuration. Each Super Bowl ring, deservedly so, gets its own specific area in the display unit and is not bunched up with other championship rings.

As championship ring collectors and enthusiasts know, Super Bowl rings vary in size quite a bit, so the unique display area and surrounding space, makes the size differential of these rings matter a whole lot less noticeable.

Obviously, like I said before, this case was designed for five super bowl rings as it looks like it could not possibly fit another championship ring.

These custom displays are great, until your team wins another championship ring.

As someone who roots hard for another NFC East football team, hopefully the Cowboys won’t be winning another super bowl ring soon!

Please remember, I buy Super Bowl rings all the time. If you have a Super Bowl ring to sell, please let me know!

The Championship Rings From Super Bowl X

February 14, 2015


Continuing my blog series on the two amazing championship rings awarded from every Super Bowl, here’s the next installment; an inside look at the two championship rings from Super Bowl X:

super bowl x championship rings


As I’ve written so many times before, please accept my apologies that the above photo contains my website address. If I didn’t super-impose this in the picture, other web sites would steal my pictures and eBay sellers who make those incredibly cheap replicas in China that don’t look as realistic as authentic championship rings, will use my photos to claim the pictures are of their replica championship rings!

Almost every pictures I use on this blog series of the two championship rings are from my personal championship ring collection. As you know, these rings are extremely rare in the hobby place and are very seldom (or perhaps never) photographed in pairs from specific Super Bowl games. So again, please excuse my effort to keep these photos from being misused and misrepresented. When I do use a picture found on the internet, I promise, I won’t place my website over the picture.

The ring on the left is the Pittsburgh Steelers second winning Super Bowl Ring from their 1975 season. No team has more winning super bowl rings than the Steelers (currently at 6) and this is their second one and only the third back-to-back Super Bowl ring (the Green Bay Packers and Miami Dolphins were the first two teams to accomplish this feat).

Designed and manufactured by Balfour in 10K solid yellow gold, it contains two large diamonds, for each Super Bowl the team had won and weighs approximately 42 grams.

Like so many other winning Super Bowl rings, the Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl X ring is extremely rare and in high demand by Pittsburgh Steeler fans and highly coveted by championship ring collectors. Very few of these rings have made it to the collecting community.

In a tradition that continues to this day, the team that loses the Super Bowl is still recognized as a champion of their respective conference. The Dallas Cowboys championship ring from this game was made by Balfour in 10K white solid gold. Although the ring looks almost as large as the Steelers ring, it weighs in at around 34 grams.

Please remember that I buy super bowl rings and buy championship rings too, so please let me know if you have a championship ring you would like to sell.

Diamond Cutters International is one of four companies bidding to create the next Super Bowl ring

January 28, 2015


Could one of these Championship Ring designs wind up being the next Super Bowl ring?

Super Bowl XLIX Rings


Yes, one of these two Championship Ring designs shown above could be the next Super Bowl ring, if Houston based Diamond Cutters International   wins the selection process.

Fred Cuellar, CEO of Diamond Cutters International (or DCI for short) boasts: “My expertise in diamonds; I’m considered one of the best diamond experts in the world,” Cuellar said. “So to get to design these little miniature trophies for these incredible athletes is such an incredible honor.”

According to the site, Click2houston.com, they wrote “Diamond Cutters International has designed four Super Bowl rings and has been involved in the process with more than a dozen rings.”.

According to my many years of research and personally owning every single Super Bowl ring with the exception of three that were all made by Jostens, I am sure that Diamond Cutters International designed and produced only one or two super bowl rings that were chosen to be made officially for the teams – The Denver Broncos Super Bowl XXXII ring and possibly, the Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl XXX ring.

Of all the championship rings I have ever seen, in my humble opinion (and many in the jewelry and championship ring market-place agree), the design and making of the shanks (the sides) of those two championship rings were way below the standards of Jostens and Balfour.

A company by the name of “Diamond Masters” supposedly made the Cowboys Super Bowl XXX ring, and I am not sure if these two companies with similar names are connected.

Why am I not sure who made the rings? It seems like a simple thing to find out but it’s not. With the exception of these two Super Bowl rings, every other ring manufacturer who has made a Super Bowl ring has proudly stamped their name inside the ring. Ironically, the Super Bowl XXX and XXXII rings are only stamped “14K”,   nothing else is stamped on the inside.

The Following year, after the Broncos repeated as World Champions, they awarded the Super Bowl ring contract to Jostens. Perhaps it’s possible they were not thrilled with the quality of the ring sides. In my opinion, the ring sides were substantially improved when Jostens made the Super Bowl XXXIII ring for the Broncos.

Please remember I buy championship rings. To sell me your championship ring, please contact me.

The Championship Rings From Super Bowl VI

January 10, 2015


Continuing my blogs on the pairs of rings issued from every single Super Bowl, here’s a look at the two championship rings from Super Bowl VI:

Super Bowl VI Rings


First, my apologies that the photo above shows my website address. If I didn’t put this on the picture, other web sites would steal my pictures and worse than that, those ebay sellers who make cheap replicas that don’t look anywhere near as realistic as the real rings, will use the photos and claim the pictures are of their replica championship rings!

Almost all the pictures that I show on this blog series are from my own personal championship ring collection, as these rings are extremely rare and seldom (or perhaps never) photographed in pairs from the specific Super Bowl games. So I hope you will excuse the on-going efforts to keep the photos from being misused and misrepresented. Please keep in mind that when I use a common picture found on the internet, I don’t put my website address on the photo.

The ring on the right is the Dallas Cowboys first winning Super Bowl Ring. Designed and manufactured by Balfour, in 14K white solid gold, it contained one large diamond and plenty of smaller diamonds. The onyx or sapphire stone, in the shape of their logo, matches their team colors superbly. This ring weighs 35.5 grams and is the first example of championship ring where the top of the ring is predominantly covered with diamonds. Perhaps this is the very first ring that we refer to as having plenty of “bling”.

As gorgeous as the Cowboys ring is, all that “bling” may have proved costly to manufacture. The Cowboys championship ring from Super Bowl VI is a rare instance where the losing Super Bowl ring is larger and heavier than the winning Super Bowl ring.

Like so many other winning Super Bowl rings, the Cowboys Super Bowl VI ring is extremely rare and highly coveted by championship ring collectors. Very few of these rings have sold to the public.

In a tradition that continues to this day, the team that loses the Super Bowl is still recognized as a champion of their respective conference. The Miami Dolphins ring from this game was made by Jostens in 14K white solid gold. The ring is larger and heavier than the Cowboys ring, weighing in at 44.5 grams (10 grams heavier than the Cowboys ring).

A very cool feature of this ring is that the inside band contains an actual facsimile of the recipient’s signature. This technique was first done on the 1955 World Series Brooklyn Dodger rings. The replica signature was a big hit and was also part of the Dolphins Super Bowl rings that followed during the next two seasons.

Similar to the Cowboys ring, the Dolphins AFC championship ring incorporated the team’s colors by having the onyx stone match their official team color. The ring contains one center diamond.

Please know that I buy super bowl rings and I buy championship rings. Let me know if you have a championship ring you would like to sell.

The Championship Rings From Super Bowl V

January 6, 2015


Continuing my blogs on the pairs of rings issued from every Super Bowl, let’s take a look at the two championship rings from Super Bowl V:

Super Bowl V Championship Rings


Please accept my apology that the above photo contains my website address. If I don’t place this on the picture, other web sites will steal my pictures and worse, ebay sellers who make those cheap replicas that don’t look as anywhere near as realistic as the real rings, will use the photos and claim the pictures are of their replica championship rings.

Almost all of the photographs from this blog series are from my own personal championship ring collection. As you know, many of these rings are extremely rare and seldom (or perhaps never) photographed in pairs from the specific Super Bowl game. So please excuse the on-going efforts to keep the photos from being misused and misrepresented. When I use a common picture found on the internet, I don’t put my website address on the photo.

The ring on the left is the Baltimore Colts Super Bowl V ring. Designed and manufactured by Jostens, it contained one large diamond and 7 small blue gems that match the Colts team colors.

In my humble opinion, of all the old-time Super Bowl rings, before the days of bling-rings, the Colts Super Bowl V ring is the classiest, most beautiful Super Bowl ring ever designed. It is a simple and elegant design, and ingeniously finds a way to incorporate the team’s logo font and center on the championship ring.

Unlike the Chiefs Super Bowl ring from the season before, the phrase “Super Bowl” is prominently displayed on the side of the ring. The side contains the score “Colts 16, Cowboys 13″.

The Colts Super Bowl V ring is readily available to championship rings collectors in the salesman sample version, however player or front office championship rings are extremely rare and highly coveted by championship ring collectors. Very few of these rings have been sold to the public.

In a tradition that continues to this day, the team that loses the Super Bowl is still recognized as a champion of their respective conference. The Cowboys ring from this game is the first ring to say “NFC Champions” and not “NFL Champions” as the merger was officially completed and implemented during the 1970 season.

Before the official merger was completed, the losing ring would contain either “AFL” or “NFL” champions, while the winning Super Bowl team’s ring would have the words “World Champions”. Starting with Super Bowl V and continuing to modern times, the team that loses the Super Bowl earns an “AFC” or “NFC” champions ring.

Like the Colts ring, the Cowboys NFC ring has an ingenious design that incorporates the team’s logo. The championship ring, made by Balfour, contains one large center diamond and five smaller diamonds.

Please keep in mind that I buy super bowl rings and I buy championship rings. Please let me know if you have a championship ring you would like to sell.
