Even U2′s Bono Loves Super Bowl Rings

July 17, 2015


The Rock/Pop legend was photographed this week sporting the Patriots latest Super Bowl Ring:

Bono and the Patriots 2014 Super Bowl Ring


Although U2 did not play at Gillette Stadium, Robert and Jonathan Kraft (shown in the photo above with Bono) found a way to meet Bono and the rest of the band and see them perform.

The Krafts, owner of the Patriots, were at the TD Garden on Wednesday and hung out with U2 before their fourth and final performance in Boston.

The Krafts took the photo above with Bono wearing the 2014 Super Bowl ring before the show.

I hear things went much better with this championship ring moment than what occurred in 2005.   That’s when Robert Kraft showed his Super Bowl XXXIX ring to Putin.   As has been reported on this championship ring blog and all throughout the media, Putin put the huge championship ring in his pocket and walked away.

Please remember, I buy championship rings and would love a chance to buy the Patriots 2014 Super Bowl ring.   Please let me know if you have a championship ring to sell.

Here Come The Super Bowl XLIX Ring Knockoffs!

July 6, 2015


Knockoff championship rings from the Patriots recent Super Bowl victory, are showing up for sale on eBay.

Patriots Super Bowl XLIX ring


How in the world does, eBay, the NFL, Jostens, and the New England Patriots allow the sale of knockoff championship rings?

I am not affiliated with anyone making or selling knockoff rings and I am not endorsing them.   Buying from shady sellers, who sidestep the law, can be disastrous, and good luck trying to get your money back if you purchase one of these items and are disappointed with them, or worse, they don’t show up in your mailbox.

However, since they’re for sale, and championship ring collectors and Patriots fans are buying them, I’m going to blog about them.

The seller of this replica Super Bowl XLIX ring, can easily be found on ebay.   The top of the ring looks pretty accurate, and I have to admit, they nailed the inside engraving too (you can see for yourself at eBay).

The maker of this replica championship ring did a poor job on the two sides of the ring, but for the $99.00 selling price, it’s hard to argue or talk someone out of wanting to purchase this ring.

Another issue to consider before purchasing this Super bowl ring: Can we be sure the ring is sized correctly?   The manufacturer had no idea as to what the real size of the authentic super bowl ring is so I’m sure it’s an educated guess.   It’s probably not close to the correct size.

If the buyer wants to wear the ring, it will probably discolor and some of the replica diamonds may fall off, since they are glued in.   However, if the buyer wishes to display this ring on a shelf or in a glass enclosure, the championship ring should hold up well.

If you decide to purchase this replica championship ring, keep in mind they always go down in price as other replica championship ring manufacturers jump in and make this ring too, so you’re better off waiting to purchase the ring.

Please remember, I buy championship rings, so if you have a real championship ring (sorry, no replicas or salesman samples), please let me know.

The Patriots Four Super Bowl Rings on the 4th of July

July 4, 2015


Because today’s a special and patriotic day, here’s a photo (that ties in with American Independence) that shows the Patriots four Super Bowl rings and offers the best view to date of their relative sizes:

New England Patriots Super Bowl rings


While I’m no fan of the Patriots (in fact I am a huge fan of one of their division rivals), I do love Super Bowl rings and I have to admit, these four championship rings are stunning.

Yes it kills me how the team has been caught cheating during two of their championship years, not to mention the controversial “tuck rule” that helped the team win their first Super Bowl ring.

Anyway, this is a great photograph that shows the rings together and displays how Kraft and his organization has done a great job in keeping the run of championship rings in a similar theme.

I love that each ring is smothered in diamonds, and with all the white color of the gold and diamonds, the black antiquing between the lettering, combined with a red and blue Patriot icon, help make the championship rings stand out.

The newest Patriots Super Bowl ring, shown on the far left is so much bigger than the other rings and is easily the largest super bowl ring ever created.   Probably because of it’s huge production cost, the Patriots had this ring, unlike the first three Super Bowl rings, cast in 10K gold, not 14K gold.

I hope everyone enjoys their 4th of July, and I guess for one day a year, we can all be Patriots (yuck, did I say that? I love America but not the New England Patriots football team).

Please remember, I buy championship rings so if you have one to sell, please let me know!

Super Bowl Ring Humor

June 22, 2015


Last week, this funny photo circulated on Twitter, shortly before Patriot’s Owner Robert Kraft had his huge Super Bowl Ring presentation party:

Super Bowl ring humor


Just to recap the details:

Unlike previous Super Bowl ring presentation ceremonies, this event was not announced weeks before the scheduled date.

I thought, perhaps this meant that Kraft and the Patriots would keep the event low-key since the media and NFL fans were upset by the team’s second cheating scandal.

Boy was I wrong, the Super Bowl ring party turned out to be a mega event; where no expense was spared to make it a huge and lavish party.

I also thought that perhaps the 2014 Super Bowl ring would be smaller, and contain less bling since Kraft and company seemed to have taken over the Raider’s old identity as the “outlaws” of the NFL.

Wrong again!   The Super Bowl rings were huge, and physically, the largest Championship Rings ever produced by an NFL team.

It’s no secret that Kraft and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell are no longer on best of terms like the old days.   Kraft was furious at the penalties invoked by Goodell and the NFL for Deflategate.   Kraft decided not to fight the team’s punishment, although Tom Brady is seeking a reduction of his four game suspension.

This photo, that appeared on Twitter shortly before the championship ring party, pokes fun of Kraft’s and Goodell’s strained relationship.

Please remember, I buy championship rings, and would love a chance to purchase the Patriots new 2014 Super Bowl XLIX ring. Please let me know if you have one to sell.

Final Thoughts on the Patriots Latest Super Bowl Ring

June 20, 2015


It’s been almost a week since the New England Patriots received their amazing Super Bowl XLIX rings. Here’s the latest tidbits uncovered:

New England Patriots Super Bowl XLIX Ring


This will be my last post about the Patriots newest Super Bowl ring until I own one or one hits the news or auction circuit.

I covered the ring extensively this week, and uncovered and shared almost every detail of the ring.

Shown above are two photographs that nicely detail how much bigger the new Super Bowl XLIX ring is than the Patriots Super Bowl XXXIX ring, also pictured above. While the Super Bowl XXXIX ring was known to fans and championship ring enthusiasts as one of the biggest, most blinged out rings ever, the latest Super Bowl ring is substantially larger.


Wally1912, a reader and contributor at sportslogos.net – championship ring internet forum, let the forum readers know that the 360 degree video of the championship ring, clearly showed the ring is made of 10K solid white gold (see photo below).

New England Patriots Super Bowl XLIX Ring


So we’ve covered everything about this ring: We’ve seen the owner’s shanks, the player’s shanks, and how the new championship rings have various diamond configurations based upon the player’s jersey number. We’ve detailed the wood presentation box, the amount and total weight of the diamonds, and now we know the rings are made of 10K white gold.

We also know the rings are bigger than the Patriots Super Bowl XXXIX rings, so it’s confirmed that the new Super Bowl rings are physically, the largest Super Bowl rings ever.

We still don’t know the gram weight of the ring, and there’s a strong probability that these rings are not the heaviest rings ever, since 10K gold is about 10% lighter than 14K gold. This is the first Patriots Super Bowl ring to be made in 10K gold, all others were 14K gold. The heaviest rings ever, are the Packers Super Bowl XLV rings, made of platinum which is even heavier than 14K gold. The Packers championship ring weighs in at 109-110 grams.

The new Patriots championship rings have 205 diamonds that weigh 4.85 carats.   Their iconic Super Bowl XXXIX ring had 111 diamonds and weighted in at 4.94 carats.

Without having seen a real Super Bowl XLIX Patriots ring, or put one on my finger, I can promise you that these rings are super-uncomfortable to wear.   I will never forget the lineman who told me his Super Bowl XXXIX ring was too big to wear and that he preferred their Super Bowl XXXVI ring to slip on his finger.

Someday, hopefully soon, I will acquire the Super Bowl XLIX and if and when I do, I will share the gram weight and any final secrets that are uncovered.

Please remember, I buy super bowl rings. If you have one to sell, please let me know.
