The Steelers did their best to make their brand new Super Bowl rings look different from all the rest – and why not? They are the first team in the history of the NFL to have six titles under their belt, and the ring that the players from last years squad will wear will show that.
The team went with six round, brilliant cut diamonds surrounding the Steelers logo. The Steelers logo is formed with yellow, red and blue stones in the shape of hypocycloids sitting atop a football-shaped design created with 32 round diamonds.
Seven diamonds at each tip of the football recognize the team’s seven AFC Championships and when combined, the 14 diamonds signify the number of Division titles in Steelers history.
One side of the ring depicts six Lombardi Trophies rising from Heinz Field. The team did that as they say – “to recognize the support and loyalty of Steelers fans.” The opposing side of the ring is personalized with each individual player’s name and jersey number. That side also incorporates the Steelers helmet and the NFL shield to acknowledge both team and league.
The ring is cast in 14 karat yellow gold with black antique backgrounds to reflect the Steelers’ colors. The Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl XLIII ring weighs 104 grams (approximately 3.7 ounces) and incorporates 63 round, brilliant cut diamonds totaling 3.61 carats.
