The Ravens’ Super Bowl XLVII ring brings the bling.
It may be the flashiest Super Bowl ring ever.
The Ravens’ ring features a whopping 243 round cut diamonds. It’s crafted in 10-karat white gold with yellow-gold highlights, and has a total weight of 380 grams (13.4 ounces). The carat weight is about 3.75 carats.
“Players, coaches and staff were excited when they received their rings, which symbolize our Super Bowl victory,” Ravens President Dick Cass said. “Each ring is a personal reminder of what we achieved as a team this past season.”
In the center, the Baltimore Ravens logo is outlined with 40 round brilliant cut diamonds sitting atop a custom-cut purple amethyst stone. The “B” is in yellow gold, the beak of Raven is in white gold and the eye of the bird is highlighted with red enamel.
Behind the logo are two Vince Lombardi Trophies set with 32 round brilliant cut diamonds and two marquise diamonds weighing approximately .75 carats, representing the franchise’s two titles.
The trophies are elevated on the top of the ring, which has a stadium-style top. It looks like the bowl of a stadium, outlined in diamonds, with the Ravens logo and trophies in the middle.
The left side of the ring features the player, coach or staff member’s name. Below is the Ravens shield, with the Maryland state flag. It is flanked on each side by a team slogan popularized by Head Coach John Harbaugh, “Play Like A Raven,” which signifies toughness, hard work and humility. The player’s number or coach's title is below the shield.
The right side features the year 2012 in 10-karat yellow gold, set with 39 round brilliant cut diamonds. The yellow gold is reflective of the Ravens gold within the team logo. Below the year, the official Super Bowl XLVII logo is enhanced with three round diamonds in the top of the Lombardi Trophy.
The attention to detail doesn’t stop there. Engraved on the inside of the ring is the Ravens team logo and Harbaugh’s team mantra, “THE TEAM. THE TEAM. THE TEAM,” meaning to do whatever is best for the collective team. To the side are the scores of the four games the Ravens won on their epic postseason run, featuring the logos of the corresponding teams.
