CCSLC Championship Ring Thread


Recommended Posts

Anyone want to discuss the design of the 1985 NFL championship rings - and the Bears Super Bowl XX ring?

In my humble opinion, the Bears championship ring was the nicest Super Bowl ring made up to this point. The ring had just the right balance of bling that players yearned for, and still clearly displayed their classic iconic logo.

So a few weeks ago I decided to take a risk and snag one of those Chinese made championship rings off of E Bay. I know that counterfeit merchandise is always a risk, but the price was pretty low and I wanted to see just how jacked up these things are.

It's not perfect, but I gotta say, it's pretty damn impressive for $25.

Yeah I was expecting a total disaster, because the ones I've seen in Person looked like trash. My jaw about hit the floor when I opened the box.

I'm probably gonna give it to my mom this Sunday to add to her Giants shelf, but this makes me wanna order the 2012 and 2014 versions, too.

Billy Gabor and his surviving teammates get NBA Championship Rings they earned 60 Years Ago.

These rings were recently designed and awarded to the 1955 NBA Champions - Syracuse Nationals.

Any comments about the design of the ring?

I wrote a blog story and the very special gesture another Syracuse sports owner did to get the surviving players these rings.

I like it but why didn't they receive one when they won the title?

Professional basketball was small-time, nothing like what it has become. Additionally, Syracuse is a small city and a small market. The owners could not afford to give out championship rings.

Wow, look at the design on the side of this College Championship Ring. Is this a precursor to future Super Bowl Rings?

We have a lot of pro football teams that have won four or more Super Bowl rings. As their individual championship numbers climb, a championship ring manufacturer can incorporate the Whitewater design into future super bowl rings and show off each Lombardi trophy and the year the championship was won.

I hope we see this championship ring format again on future super bowl rings. I wrote about this ring in greater detail on my blog.

Yeah that's UW Whitewater here in Wisconsin. The top is blah but I like the sides.

Anyone want to discuss the design of the Super Bowl XXI rings.

I wrote about both rings in-depth at my blog.

sb21c.jpg

The ring on the left is the New York Giants Super Bowl Ring from their 1986 season. Unlike the two Super Bowl rings preceding this example, the Giants ring contains less bling but more elegance.

This is the first Super Bowl ring where the Lombardi trophy has such a prominent role in the championship ring and it’s a perfect theme for the Giant’s first Lombardi trophy.

With Jostens making both of these championship rings, and both teams choosing a blue onyx stone, it appears that the stone color is identical in the two rings. This is the first example where both championship rings from the same season match.

I love this photo since I was able to match the blue type and the rings look identical in gold and blue coloring. Four seasons later, the Giants went with a slightly lighter blue stone and the Bills (also a team that has blue in their official colors, opted to go with a red stone).

I hope the moderator won't delete this post - it is a discussion about the design of the next Super Bowl ring (and the design of a protest ring too).

I spoke to a Jostens official who I know, and he confirmed Jostens has been awarded the Patriots ring design. It should be making the headlines in another month or so.

Meanwhile, do you feel the New England Patriots Super Bowl ring should buck the trend of being huge and perhaps for once, be understated, based on Deflategate?

The Way Kraft is behaving, he will probably be defiant and make even bigger rings!

Meanwhile, an angry football fan has started a Kickstarter campaign and wants to make the “Super Bowl ring” shown below, a symbol of Deflategate and a statement of how the Patriots tarnished their championship.

The Indianapolis Colts fan wants to give the New England Patriots the ring he feels they deserve. His ring, made using 3-D printer technology, holds a real ball-inflation needle, the kind the NFL now believes was used in the infamous Deflategate game.

Angry Colts fan Jacob Ayers, created the prototype shown below, to raise $750 on Kickstarter to manufacture these “championship rings.” So far, there are no backers for the campaign that ends May 31, but for a pledge of $50, Ayers will send rings to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the entire Patriots team.

Hopefully, fans of other teams, affected by this mess will also be able to buy these “Super Bowl” rings.

Should the campaign fail to raise the appropriate funds to make this ring happen, at least the images have been picked up and used on social media.

Your thoughts on his protest ring and if the Patriots should design and create a smaller ring due to all their bad press this off-season.

Anyone want to discuss the design of the rings from Super Bowl XXII?

Generally, I withhold criticism of championship rings, but the Redskins ring is awful!

sb22c.jpg

This is the first Super Bowl ring Tiffany and Company designed and produced for an NFL championship team.

Here's why I dislike this ring: Small diamonds make up the two Lombardi trophies and the result is very sloppy. The two Lombardi trophies represent the Redskins two Super Bowl titles.

Adding to the yuck factor, the red stones on the top of the ring are surrounded by large gold prongs that are too large. The visual combination of red and yellow giant prongs creates too much mish mosh and ruins the elegance and beauty of the championship ring.

The shanks (sides of the rings) are unusual in their design. I like the style and think they are great, but perhaps other championship ring enthusiasts and collectors have a different opinion about the shanks.

The ring was made in 10K solid yellow gold and weighs 50 grams.

Tiffany made very few Super Bowl rings in the 80s and 90s, but started to become much more involved in making Championship rings in the last 15 years. The quality of their designs have improved dramatically since the debut of this ring.

Anyone want to add their thoughts?

I love this championship College Hockey Ring:

alb44.jpg

The Alberta Golden Bears have just won their 15th Collegiate Hockey National Championship and were awarded the championship ring shown above.

The hockey team has won 15 National titles and their latest championship ring plays homage to that feat by listing each championship year.

While these championship rings are a real eye-catcher, they are not made of solid gold or real diamonds. As you can see from the picture above, the rings are made by Jostens.

Tennessee Volunteers Football Team Receives 2015 Championship Rings:

vol11.jpg

The Vols championship ring, show above, looks remarkably similar to the Texas Rangers 2010 American League championship ring shown below:

rang66.jpg

Although, (and much for the worse), the bowl game is now called the TaxSlayer bowl, the championship rings celebrate the big win with the original name, The Gator Bowl

The Gator Bowl wording is featured on the top of the championship ring. However, as possibly mandated by the NCAA, the TaxSlayer Bowl logo is imprinted on one of the championship ring's sides.
