BROOKLINE, Mass. (WPRI) — The New England Patriots were awarded their Super Bowl Rings on Sunday night during an exclusive party at team owner Robert Kraft’s home.
“I have been blessed to host four Super Bowl ring ceremonies, and just like the rings we present, we have tried to make each ceremony a little bigger and a little better than the one before,” Kraft said. “Football is the consummate team sport. These championship rings represent all that the team endured and overcame together.”
The Patriots’ fourth championship ring is the largest Super Bowl ring ever made. Attleboro based Jostens has crafted all of the team’s championship jewelry. This year’s rings feature 205 diamonds. The Patriots logo highlights four Lombardi Trophies, which are cast with marquee-cut diamonds. The rings have a minimum 4.85 carat weight.
One side of the ring has the team’s motto for the 2014 season, “Do Your Job”. It shows the final score and logo from Super Bowl XLIX. The opposite side shows the Gillette Stadium lighthouse, and features the player’s name and jersey number. “We are all Patriots” is inscribed inside the band. It’s a quote from Robert Kraft’s postgame speech following the team’s first Super Bowl victory in 2001.
“Beginning with their Super Bowl XXXVIII win, the Patriots started a trend in designing a unique shape for each of their championship rings, and they have once again outdone themselves with their Super Bowl XLIX Championship Ring,” Jostens vice president Chris Poitras said.
Of the team’s four rings, the newest one has the highest appraised value.
