The Hardware Has Arrived!

In case you weren’t looking for it in the news last evening, the Green Bay Packers’ Super Bowl championship rings were presented in a ceremony at Lambeau Field. Above and below are some various views of the commemorative hardware.

It’s too bad that they don’t present Super Bowl rings to folks who run historical websites devoted to the team (although all full-time employees — yes, even the custodians — got a ring). The Packers Pro Shop has many “fan” rings available, however, as well as special exclusive versions for both shareholders and season ticket owners. You can take a look at all the selections here.

Here is a nice view of the new rings, plus the team’s previous Super Bowl rings:

Some information from Jostens, the ring manufacturer:

Four Super Bowls. One Legacy.

“Members of the Green Bay Packers organization received their Super Bowl XLV World Championship rings at a celebration on June 16, 2011 in the Lambeau Field Atrium. The Packers selected Jostens to create the team's 4th Super Bowl Championship ring to symbolize their win in Super Bowl XLV and capture iconic elements of the Packers' football legacy.

The ring is cast in platinum with a crest featuring the Green Bay "G" logo cast in 18-kt. yellow gold set on a green stone tablet. Thirteen diamonds are embedded in the logo, each one representing a Green Bay NFL Championship. The familiar logo is illuminated by round brilliant cut diamonds and four marquis cut diamonds adorn the perimeter of the ring, representing the Packers' four Super Bowl triumphs.

The Green Bay Packers' relationship with Jostens dates back to legendary coach Vince Lombardi, who chose Jostens to commemorate the Packers' historic victory in Super Bowl I in 1967. The newest ring will join the team's collection including rings representing team victories in Super Bowl I (1967), Super Bowl II (1968) and Super Bowl XXXI (1997).

Jostens is proud to have created 29 of the 45 Bowl ring to date.”

This doesn’t feature the Packers only, but it’s a nice video showing some of the process of making Super Bowl rings for the National Football League teams:

And, in case you need yet another view of the Super Bowl XLV ring, here it is:

Congratulations to all who received their rings last evening!
