Tom Brady and Eli Manning's Super Bowl championship rings


Brady’s were all made by Jostens and his last two winning rings are huge! Manning’s two were made by Tiffany and Company”

The ring on the left is from the Patriot’s first Super Bowl Victory – Super Bowl XXXVI. This ring sets the reoccurring theme on all the following rings. All three of Brady’s rings are made of solid white gold, covered with gorgeous white diamonds, and their colorful logo prominently displayed. This ring was considered quite large when it was made, possibly the largest super bowl ring ever made at that time.

The super bowl XXXVI ring is loaded with 144 diamonds and 2.63 carats. The 14K white gold ring weighed in at 72 grams. The wood presentation box was a magnificent ring holder with the super bowl XXXVI logo on top. You can see all of the presentation boxes in the Super Bowl Ring Gallery, a link is provided on this website’s home page.

The next ring shown, unquestionably was the largest super bowl ring every produced at the time it was awarded. This super bowl XXXVIII hit the 100 gram mark. It has 104 diamonds and two huge marquise diamonds, symbolizing the team’s second World Championship. The 14 carat white gold ring contained 5.05 carats of white diamonds and baguettes.

The wood presentation box is even larger than the Super Bowl XXXVI box. It contained two Lombardi trophies on the top and a football shaped window to allow the ring to be seen when the box was closed. You can see all of the presentation boxes in the Super Bowl Ring Gallery, a link is provided on this website’s home page.

The ring in the middle is the Patriots crowning achievement and the most stunning super bowl ring I have ever seen. This super bowl XXXIX ring is also made of 14K solid white gold and contains 111 diamonds. There are three Lombardi trophies to symbolize the team’s third world championship in four seasons. The ring is larger than the Super Bowl XXXVIII ring and is the largest ring ever produced (only the Ravens Super Bowl XLVII comes close.

A player once told me that this ring was too large and too heavy to wear everyday and he was a 300 pound, huge defensive lineman! Keep in mind that the Packers super bowl XLV ring is heavier, but not larger. This is because that ring is made of Platinum which is more costly and heavier than 14K gold.

The fourth ring from the left is the Giants Super Bowl XLII ring. The heavily favored, undefeated New England Patriots were upset by the Giants 17-14 in a thrilling game. In the picture above it looks like Brady has gotten over this huge loss.

The Giants chose Tiffany and Company to make this ring. It’s a large ring, weighing in at 72 grams and is made of solid 14K white gold. The ring contains three marquise diamonds inside of three Lombardi trophies to celebrate the teams third Super Bowl Championship. In a tribute to their sensational string of road victories that season, the team placed the phrase “Eleven Straight on The Road” on the side of the ring.

The last ring shown on the right is the Eli’s most current ring – 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 & Company. The numerous blue rubies and blue stone on top is a visual improvement over Eli’s first Tiffany Super Bowl ring. The ring is made of 14K white solid gold.

New England Patriots Super Bowl and AFC Championship rings


Pictured above left to right, Super Bowl XXXVI, XXXVIII and XXXIX World Championship Rings, and the 2007 and 2011 AFC Championship rings.

The New England Patriots are the only North American professional sports franchise to assemble such an impressive collection of championship ring-bling in an eleven year span.

While the New York Yankees won 5 consecutive World Series from 1949 – 1953, and the Boston Celtics won 11 championships in 13 years, and the Yankees won 6 championship rings (4 winners, and 2 American League Championship rings) from 1996 – 2003, those rings can’t compare in dazzle and bling to the Patriots rings shown above.

Let’s take a look at each ring:

The first ring on the left is from the Patriot’s first Super Bowl Victory. This Super Bowl XXXVI ring sets the reoccurring theme on all the following rings. All six rings are made of solid white gold, covered with gorgeous white diamonds, and their colorful logo prominently displayed. This ring was considered quite large when it made its appearance, possibly the largest super bowl ring ever made at that time.

The super bowl XXXVI ring is packed with 144 diamonds and 2.63 carats. The 14K white gold ring weighed in at 72 grams. The wood presentation box was a magnificent ring holder with the super bowl XXXVI logo on top. You can see all of the presentation boxes in the Super Bowl Ring Gallery, a link is provided on this website’s home page.

The next ring shown, unquestionably was the largest super bowl ring every produced at the time it was awarded. This super bowl XXXVIII reached an unbelievable 100 grams. It has 104 diamonds and two huge marquise diamonds, symbolizing the team’s second World Championship. The 14 carat white gold ring contained 5.05 carats of white diamonds and baguettes.

The wood presentation box is even larger than the Super Bowl XXXVI box. It contained two Lombardi trophies on the top and a football shaped window to allow the ring to be seen. You can see all of the presentation boxes in the Super Bowl Ring Gallery, a link is provided on this website’s home page.

The ring in the middle is the Patriots crowning achievement and the most stunning super bowl ring I have ever seen. This super bowl XXXIX ring is also made of 14K solid white gold and contains 111 diamonds. There are three Lombardi trophies to symbolize the team’s third world championship in four seasons. As you can see, the ring is larger than the Super Bowl XXXVIII ring and is the largest ring ever produced.

A player once confessed to me that this ring was too large and too heavy to wear everyday and he was a 300 pound, towering lineman! Please note that the Packers super bowl XLV ring is heavier, but not larger. This is because that ring is made of Platinum which is more costly and heavier than 14K gold.

Super Bowl XXXIX was the New England Patriot’s pinnacle of success. Their next two super bowl appearances did not go as well, losing both games in tight matches against the New York Giants.

Shown second from the right is their 2007 AFC championship ring. Championship rings are awarded to teams that lose in the super bowl. It’s a way to celebrate the team winning their conference championship.

The 2007 ring is loaded with small white diamonds and the ring is made of 10 carrot white gold. The 2007 is the only ring of the five made of 10K gold, not 14K. The ring is 46 grams in weight – comparable to a super bowl winning ring from the 1970′s – 1980′s.

The first four rings shown were all made by Jostens. The New England Patriots last Championship ring, the ring on the right was designed and manufactured as a collaboration by Masters of Design and Herff Jones.

The 2011 ring is a much more impressive ring than the 2007 version. It boasts 7 marques diamonds which symbolize the team’s 7 AFC championships and Super Bowl appearances. The Patriots returned to making the ring in 14K white gold, and increased the weight to 54 grams.

The “MHK” design is a loving tribute to the Kraft family. Owner, Robert Kraft’s wife, Myra Hiatt Kraft, passed away during the 2011 season and the owner and team was mourning her loss during the season.

The wood presentation box also is a tribute to Mrs. Kraft as her initials are prominently displayed on the top.
