Blazing orange sapphires and an extraordinary corundum blue stone: behold the Denver Broncos Super Bowl 50 Championship Ring!
A few days after the press conference that introduced the luxurious ring created by Jostens to celebrate the Carolina Panthers, it’s time to admire another amazing ring: the one dedicated to Denver Broncos, the champions of Super Bowl 50. The team presented players, coaches and football staff with their Super Bowl 50 championship rings during a private ceremony this evening at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Created by Jostens, the leading national custom jewelry designer and producer, the championship ring commemorates the Broncos' outstanding 2015 season and celebrates the team's triumphant victory in Super Bowl 50. "The Super Bowl 50 championship victory was a tremendous achievement for the entire Broncos organization," Broncos President and CEO Joe Ellis said. "We're honored to once again partner with Jostens to recognize such an historic moment in NFL history with a spectacular, one-of-a-kind ring that symbolizes the accomplishments of this very special team. "Most importantly, the ring honors the Broncos' rich history and passionate fan base. It truly captures the excitement of our Super Bowl 50 win for the incredibly deserving members of our organization."
"Jostens is honored to once again partner with the Broncos to create a championship ring that celebrates the team's historic win and honors its championship legacy," said Chris Poitras, vice president, Jostens. "Every element of the ring was designed to reflect the significance of winning Super Bowl 50 and recognizes the team's accomplishments and rich history of the Denver Broncos."
The Super Bowl 50 Championship Ring boasts 212 round, tapered and marquise shaped diamonds all meticulously set in a 10-karat white-and-yellow gold ring. This collection of stones comes together to create a stunning ring that tops more than 5.05 carats.
The ring top features the Super Bowl 50 logo and the team's three Lombardi Trophies placed above the Denver Broncos logo on a field of pave-set diamonds. The trophies are created from marquise-cut stones, tapered baguettes and pave-set stones. The Bronco mane is created from diamond-cut orange sapphires while the head features pave-set diamonds and a custom-cut corundum blue stone. The words WORLD CHAMPIONS adorn the top and bottom edges.
The sides feature 56 stones representing the Broncos' 56-year history and the top and bottom edges each feature 15 stones to mark the team's 15 wins during the 2015 season and the 15 titles. One side features the player's number and their name above a crown highlighted in yellow to mark all three Super Bowl titles with eight round stones adorning the top of the crown to mark the team's eight AFC Championships. The other side features DENVER BRONCOS arched above an image of the Lombardi Trophy and the year 2015. The trophy is surrounded by the words "THIS ONE'S FOR PAT" in honor of Owner Pat Bowlen.
