Default New Details Emerge on the Patriots 2014 Super Bowl Ring

First off, let's recap the few details that were released by Jostens, the designer and manufacturer of the Patriots Super Bowl XLIX ring:

"In keeping with tradition, the championship ring features a unique shape and industry-changing design. The stunning ring, handcrafted by Jostens, celebrates the team’s DO YOUR JOB attitude with the largest Super Bowl ring ever made, crafted in white gold with a minimum of 4.85 carat weight and a total stone count of 205 diamonds. The ring showcases the team’s four Lombardi Trophies; each created by a marquise-cut diamond."

Additionally, Jostens revealed:

"The ring top features the team’s iconic Patriots logo, surrounded by 44 pavé-set round diamonds. The words WORLD CHAMPIONS flank the ring top and 143 additional round diamonds are pavé-set to complete this uniquely shaped ring. The right side features the season’s motto DO YOUR JOB, the final score of the historic game, the season record and the Super Bowl XLIX logo. The left side lists all four championship years, a silhouette of Gillette Stadium and the player’s name and number. Each player’s number is set in diamonds. "




Player rings have a very unusual feature; and I believe this is the first time this personalization feature has been used in any championship ring I have ever seen: The Player's uniform number, shown on the side of the ring (called the ring shank), contains real diamonds outlined in their jersey number.

That means that each super bowl ring varies in the number of diamonds. A player with the number "88" would contain 12 diamonds in each "8" for a total of 24 diamonds; while the player who wears #11, would contain a total of 8 diamonds.



Additional personalization is found inside the ring, (see above) where it looks like the recipient's signature is shown below the words, "We Are All Patriots". It's possible, Kraft coined this phrase and therefore his signature is in every ring, but my gut feeling is that each championship ring is personalized with the owner's signature.




The final detail to emerge yesterday was the Patriots and Jostens's choice in choosing the wooden presentation box. The Super Bowl XLIX ring will be housed in Jostens's standard glass and wood presentation box with led lighting. This is the same box that was used with the Packers 2010 Super Bowl XLV ring. The last time Jostens made a super bowl ring, the Ravens 2012 championship ring, Jostens used a completely different box.

Maybe it's because I am a niche ring collector but there's something about this ring I do not like. It feels too cluttered. There's just a lot going on in the design and I think it takes away from the overall presentation.

Unfortunately, that's the new style in all four of the major sports and come to think about it, College and High school sports too.

The college rings and HS rings are made of non gold and non diamonds but have gotten huge too!

Here's a picture of all four of the Patriots rings:

Better than last year but I still wish to see more color than just plain diamonds
