A Nice Ring To It

The Philadelphia Eagles championship players and front office members received their Super Bowl 52 rings last night, and boy is there a lot of detail. This ring was carefully planned out and of course, customized for each player.

Players such as Carson Wentz and Brandon Graham and Rodney McLeod went live on Periscope or posted videos to various social media accounts to show off their specific ring, but the first look came from the Eagles specifically when they posted a photo of Nick Foles’ custom Super Bowl MVP ring pictured here:

Here are some interesting facts about the hunk of diamonds each member of the organization received for beating the Patriots 41-33 on February 4th:

  • A total of 219 diamonds, including 17 green sapphires
  • Underdog Mask engraved inside
  • One side has team slogan “All we got, All we need”
  • Features Lincoln Financial field on one side with Player name and number, the other side the final score
  • The Eagles logo has 52 diamonds for Super Bowl LII
  • Lombardi Trophy has 16 diamonds for each win
  • 13 diamonds on base for 13 regular season wins (which ties a franchise record)
  • 3 diamonds at the top for 3 post-season wins
  • The bezel of the ring has 127 diamonds which adds the jersey numbers of the players involved in Philly special (Nick Foles, Trey Burton, and Corey Clement)
  • The base of the ring has 4 sapphires to represent the four championships in Eagles history.

I’m sure you’re wondering what it costs, right? According to a few reports, the total price of each ring is roughly $36,500, but that seems like a good estimate considering the ‘08 Phillies WS ring averaged $15,000

Owner Jeffrey Lurie said he originally wanted to do something elegant and unique but the players insisted on bling and as flashy as possible. During Brandon Graham’s live video, he told Lurie that they want to wind more rings and Lurie responded saying, “No team is better positioned to do it.” Time to turn the page to 2018.

More to come.
