With the unveiling of the new Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl ring, we decided to spend some time doing research in order to come up with the top-10 Super Bowl rings of all-time. Spoiler alert, Seattle’s ring from its title this past February ranks high on the list.
10. Indianapolis Colts (Super Bowl XLI)
You have to love the blue horseshoe in the center, which is topped off by the Lombardi Trophy. The term “faith” gives us some personalization about what the Colts were thinking as a team following the Super Bowl victory.
9. Dallas Cowboys (Super Bowl XXVII)
So many diamonds. So many diamonds. The star in the center of the “so many diamonds” gives this ring an individual feel to it, something that many Super Bowl rings just don’t have. No matter the potentially tacky gold, this is a top-10 Super Bowl ring.
8. New York Jets (Super Bowl III)
The oldest ring on this list, Joe Namath’s New York Jets knew style in every possible way. You have to love the football shaped green outline in the center of the ring. This particular ring is Namath’s.
7. New York Giants (Super Bowl XLII)
Some may say that this ring is colorless, but that’s what makes it look so slick. The three Lombardi Trophies, which are right above the NY logo, makes this specific ring that much better.
6. San Francisco 49ers (Super Bowl XXIX)
Only a couple teams can pull off the gold and diamond look, San Francisco is most definitely one of them. What makes this ring so grand is the five Lombardi Trophies in the center. San Francisco was the first to win that many, and made darn sure everyone knew it.
5. New England Patriots (Super Bowl XXXVIII)
I absolutely love the black on the side, which shows 15 straight and the final score of the game. Interestingly enough, this specific ring also has the Carolina Panthers logo embedded in it. On the front, it’s the Patriots logo, which looks great, and the Lombardi Trophy. Great design right here.
4. Chicago Bears (Super Bowl XX)
Not as many diamonds as some of the other rings on this list, Chicago’s somewhat bland looks goes over well here. The “C” logo, which has a huge diamond within it, gives this one a great look.
3. New Orleans Saints (Super Bowl XLIV)
Speaking of teams that can pull off the gold and diamond look, the Saints have to be first in that category. Diamonds all around the outside of the ring, coupled with a solid gold look, gives this ring a nice feel to it. The Saints logo, consisting of diamond, tops it off.
2. Green Bay Packers (Super Bowl XLV)
It was a tough decision between the two-best rings of all-time. This Packers Super Bowl ring is scary sexy. I love how the Packers logo is pushed out a tad here, giving us a great side view of it. The green background within the logo is stellar.
1. Seattle Seahawks (Super Bowl)
— Seattle Seahawks (@Seahawks) June 20, 2014
Man, this is sexy. You have to love the Seahawks logo with the small green eye, which could be taken to be menacing…much like their defense was in 2013. More than that, the simple look gives you an ability to check out the messages embedded within the ring.
“What’s Next” is an indication that Seattle is planning for bigger things moving forward. The 43-8 score leaves no doubt about who the best team in the Super Bowl was. The diamond and all silver look moves us forward from the gold crap of that past. This ring is perfect in every possible way.
