The Denver Broncos’ Super Bowl Rings Have So Much Ice That You Could Skate On These Things
The Denver Broncos have had a pretty rough offseason after seeing their starting quarterback retire and some drama regarding contract disputes with star defender Von Miller, but all was good yesterday when the player from their Super Bowl 50 team collected their rings.
And when I say all was good, I mean all was very, very shiny—just look at these fucking things:
Boasting a ridiculous 212 diamonds, here’s the full description from the team’s website on the new bling, per CBS Sports:
The Super Bowl 50 Championship Ring boasts 212 round, tapered and marquise shaped diamonds all meticulously set in a 10 karat white-and-yellow gold ring. This collection of stones comes together to create a stunning ring that tops more than 5.05 carats.
The ring top features the Super Bowl 50 logo and the team’s three Lombardi Trophies placed above the Denver Broncos logo on a field of pave-set diamonds. The trophies are created from marquise-cut stones, tapered baguettes and pave-set stones. The Bronco mane is created from diamond-cut orange sapphires while the head features pave-set diamonds and a custom-cut corundum blue stone. The words “WORLD CHAMPIONS” adorn the top and bottom edges.
The sides feature 56 stones representing the Broncos’ 56-year history and the top and bottom edges each feature 15 stones to mark the team’s 15 wins during the 2015 season and the 15 titles. One side features the player’s number and their name above a crown highlighted in yellow to mark all three Super Bowl titles with eight round stones adorning the top of the crown to mark the team’s eight AFC Championships. The other side features DENVER BRONCOS arched above an image of the Lombardi Trophy and the year 2015. The trophy is surrounded by the words “THIS ONE’S FOR PAT” in honor of Owner Pat Bowlen.
So, yeah, pretty fucking sick!
While the price for each ring wasn’t disclosed, ESPN reported that the 2014-15 Super Bowl rings of hte New England Patriots were $36,500 each, so that gives us some ballpark idea.
Unfortunately, as amazing as the new piece of swagged out jewelry is, there was at least one mistake made—the wrong name on defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’ ring, per Twitter:
Don’t worry, coach, that’s just a small fumble that you’ll recover from soon.
