Dates, scores, winning streaks, and players' names and numbers are all featured on the rings, although there are few hard and fast regulations about how the rings must look. The one restriction is that the NFL requires one side of the ring to include the Super Bowl emblem. The other side can feature any team logo.
Every year after the season ends, the champion is announced at a press conference where the coach and president discuss what play was most important in determining the winner, and why they choose that play over others that could've won or lost the game. They may also talk about changes for next season, such as changing up defenses or adding more wide receivers. Then everyone gets to ask questions about anything they want, such as who will be this years super bowl champion, or how many points did the champion score last season. Sometimes they even get invited guests, such as former champions or players who worked with the team during the season.
The president usually announces that no one else is available to speak at the conference, so they'll just make it a post-press-conference interview with only him. This way, nobody else can influence his or her answer to something asked later in the day. After the press conference is over, everyone rushes off to other things they have to do.
The rings are set with 319 diamonds, representing the final score of 31-9. The remarkable piece of jewelry was made with exquisite precision, leaving no stone unturned in order to make the ring one of the most special in NFL history, much as the 2020 season was to the club.
It's safe to say that Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have some amazing ideas about what kind of game they want to play this year. After all, this is the same team that decided to replace all of its offensive linemen with people who just happen to be really good at playing football. It worked out pretty well so far!
In fact, the Patriots are just about unstoppable right now. They're 13-0 and ranked No. 1 in both the AP and Coaches' polls. There's no way anyone can beat them this year except maybe...the Los Angeles Rams?!
Brady and company will be looking to win their fifth Super Bowl title in 2019. If they do, they'll tie the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most all time. Otherwise, they have a chance at breaking the record held by Brady and the Patriots themselves. In four previous trips to the big game, New England has won three titles himself and one with Peyton Manning (Colts).
Brady and Belichick have also combined for 11 Pro Bowl selections over the course of their careers.
More than anything, Super Bowl rings are simply stunning to look at. They're completely impractical to wear and clash with every ensemble known to man, yet there's no mistake them from afar. You know who they are and what they represent: that individual was a member of a Super Bowl-winning squad.
The most common type of Super Bowl ring is the gold medalist ring. It's made of gold because it tarnishes very little, if at all. The inside of the ring can get dirty, but otherwise it remains shiny until someone tries to put it on with wet hands or loses their grip for some other reason.
The second most common type of Super Bowl ring is the silver star. Like the gold medalist ring, it's also made of silver and has a white powder coating on one side to make it look more expensive. These rings are less popular than the gold variety, but many people still collect them.
Then there are diamond Super Bowl rings. Only a few players will ever receive one, so they are rare and expensive. The diamonds should be clear and have good color depth; any brownish tint is caused by natural contaminants in the stone. A single diamond greater than.50 carat (or $100) is required to qualify as a Super Bowl ring.
Finally, there are platinum Super Bowl rings.
