Los Angeles Rams unveil incredible blinged-out Super Bowl rings
Los Angeles, California - The Los Angeles Rams boasted loud and proud with the unveiling of their Super Bowl LVI championship rings, which are more blinged-out than any sports rings that have come before.
Sorry, girls: The Los Angeles Rams proved that diamonds might have some new best friends.
On Thursday night, the LA NFL franchise unveiled their 2021 Super Bowl championship rings – and they were nothing short of flashy.
The rings, which include 20 carats of white diamonds in total, have the most carat weight of any championship ring in sports history, the team announced.
The blinding bright rings also include a removable top - yes, the rings are actually two-piece structures - to incredibly reveal a tiny replica of the inside of SoFi Stadium.
The top of the ring features the Rams' logo made from blue and yellow sapphires, the Lombardi trophy, and two palm trees.
Once the top is taken off, the birds eye view of the Rams' SoFi Stadium is surrounded by a piece of an actual football that was used during the Super Bowl LVI game.
The ring's tiny field is also made up of remnants of SoFi Stadium turf from the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
In unique fashion, the top part of the ring connects to the bottom with columns designed to look like the columns of the stadium. The columns on the ring include .23 carats of diamonds to represent the 23 points that the Rams scored against the Bengals in the Super Bowl.
Ram's Super Bowl rings symbolize new beginnings
The Rams' Super Bowl ring design was a collaborative effort between the team's players, team leadership, and Los Angeles based jewelry house Jason of Beverly Hills.
"We are grateful to Jason and his team for their creativity and passion to deliver a championship ring that reflects our team and their historic season, the one-of-a-kind stadium where it happened, and the city that inspired all of it," Los Angeles Rams Vice President of Football & Business Affairs Tony Pastoors said in a statement.
Traditionally, most Super Bowl winning teams have honored previous Super Bowl wins by adding an extra Lombardi Trophy for each of the franchise's championships.
However, the Rams opted out of honoring their 1999 Super Bowl win – when they played as the St. Louis Rams – to focus on the new beginnings of the franchise since returning back to Los Angeles.
The rings' 1.12 carats of diamonds each symbolizes the date January 12, an important day in the Rams' Los Angeles history.
On January 12, 2016, the Rams were approved to move the team back to Los Angeles. On January 12, 2017, the Rams hired Sean McVay as head coach. And on January 12, 2019, the Rams beat the Dallas Cowboys for their first playoff victory after returning to LA.
If the Rams take home the championship again next year, it's hard to image a ring that could top this season's dazzling diamond brilliance.
