Owner Paul Allen offers fans chances to win replica Seattle Seahawks Rings

July 1, 2014


Seahawks owner Paul Allen will award 12 replica rings to 12 fans who submit photos of their “Virtual Super Bowl Ring” using the Seahawks mobile app.

seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Championship Ring


Seahawks players and coaches received their Super Bowl XLVIII championship rings in a special ceremony back on June 19 at the EMP Museum in downtown Seattle, but now Seahawks owner Paul Allen is offering 12 lucky 12s a chance to win a replica of the ring which signifies the capture of the first Lombardi Trophy in franchise history.

While the replica rings are a far cry from the diamond studded versions the players received, the replica rings are made by Tiffany, the same company that produced the player’s rings.

The replica rings are made of sterling silver and don’t contain any diamonds.

For the technologically-challenged (like me), trying to decipher Allen’s latest tweet, here’s some help:

First, you’ll need to download or update the current version of the Seahawks mobile app for your iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), Android, Blackberry, or Windows Phone device at Seahawks.com/mobile.

Next, take a photo using the application’s new “Virtual Super Bowl Ring” feature.

Last, share that virtual bling on social media using the hashtag ‘#SuperBowlRing’ for your chance to win.

Good luck!

Here Come The Cheap Replica Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Rings

June 29, 2014


It’s a shame that Tiffany, Jostens, the NFL, and eBay permit this to happen. Not only does it cheapen the accomplishment, it hurts the ring manufacturers in the wallet since they sometimes offer much better quality items for sale on their website.

fake Seattle Seattle Seahawks Replica Ring


If you want something cheap in price that’s similar to what the World Champion Seahawks are wearing, eBay might have a large selection of replica championship rings soon.

The companies in China that have brought us so many cheap championship rings that sell on ebay are gearing up to make knockoff Seahawks ring.

Most of the replica rings for sale are made in China and list from $59-$250.

Some look fantastic. Other look like crap.

One website is already offering a Seahawks ring for $212. It comes with a Russell Wilson shank and is made in a silver color that looks good.

My experience has been that often, the materials of the rings don’t match the description, and if you plan on wearing them, they may oxidize, tarnish, wear, pit or rust. The gold-tone rings (gold in color) often wear and fade to silver color. Experience has shown that if you have patience and wait, the prices for these rings drop significantly over time.

Your favorite player’s name, or your name, is sometimes available. Some rings includes a fancy presentation box and custom finger sizes are sometimes available to fit your finger properly.

Some listings will probably include the engraving of the postseason scores inside, just like the Seahawks real rings. Others won’t.

And, if you are not a Seahawks fan, the folks in China produce almost every winning (and sometimes losing) team’s championship rings. Just search on eBay.

Custom Championship Ring Frame Debuts on Ebay

May 24, 2014


The ring is a one of the poorest quality replicas ever seen, but the idea of framing and displaying a ring on a wall is a cool idea.

Derek Jeter, New York Yankees Championship World Series Ring Frame


There it was on ebay this week, a “buy it now” for $279, or a “make offer” option to buy the frame for even less money.

The offered item housed a picture of New York Yankee Captain, and legend, Derek Jeter, holding the 2009 Yankee trophy.   The piece also contained a custom engraved plaque, and a replica ring.

I wonder if this seller or perhaps someone else will offer a generic frame so you can mount your own picture, plaque and ring.

I wouldn’t recommend putting a real Championship ring in a frame, especially an authentic huge super bowl ring, since the entire frame could easily be stolen.   However, housed with a better quality replica than offered on this ebay listing, a ring-frame would be an ideal way to display a replica championship ring on your wall.

Cheap Replica Ravens Super Bowl Rings For Sale On eBay


Why Jostens and the NFL permit this to happen is a mystery. Not only does it cheapen the accomplishment, it hurts Jostens in the wallet since they offer much better quality Ravens rings for sale on their website.

Replica Super Bowl ring for the Baltimore Ravens superbowl

If you want something cheap in price that’s similar to what the World Champion Ravens are wearing, eBay has a large selection of replicas. Most are made in China and list from $89-$250.

Some look fantastic. Other look like crap.

For $250 you can get a Joe Flacco replica in silver that looks really good. According to the seller’s description, the ring is solid copper and is silver plated with cubic zirconia stones (cheap, imitation diamonds). My experience has been that often, the materials of the rings don’t match the description. And if you plan on wearing them, they may oxidize, tarnish, wear, pit or rust. The gold-tone rings (gold in color) often wear and fade to silver color. Experience has shown that if you have patience and wait, the prices for these rings drop significantly over time.

Your favorite player’s name, or your name, is sometimes available. Some rings includes a fancy presentation box and custom finger sizes are sometimes available to fit your finger properly.

Some listings include the engraving of the postseason scores inside, just like the Ravens real rings. Others do not.

If you’re looking for something more official, and a ring that can be worn and hold up, Jostens sells a fan ring for $400. It’s similar to the ones the players and coaches wear, but is smaller and slightly modified.

And, if you are not a Ravens fan, the folks in China produce almost every winning (and sometimes losing) team’s championship rings. Just search on eBay.
