When you have seven Super Bowl rings like Tom Brady does, it seems like it would be difficult to pick a favorite. Each one has certain memories and meanings attached to them. However, Brady made it pretty clear on Thursday which ring left Brady in the most awe – his most recent.
“I think this is by far the most incredible ring that’s ever been made and it’s commemorating a very special team that came together at the most important moments,” Brady said about his Super Bowl LV ring.
The Buccaneers held a ceremony in Tampa on Thursday night where Brady flaunted his new bling (and took a slight jab at the Patriots). The ring consists of 319 diamonds, commemorating the 31-9 score of Super Bowl LV. It also includes 15 karats of white diamonds and 14 karats of yellow diamonds.
Here is the front of the ring:
The rings included a unique feature not seen at first glance – a removable top. The top of the ring can come off to reveal a hand-engraved design of Raymond James Stadium, the home of the Buccaneers and Super Bowl LV. This is a technique that has been done with championship rings in the NBA, but never in the NFL. Here is a look at the inside:
“Rings are a great commemoration piece,” Brady said. “They’re not so much rings, they’re more like trophies that you wear on your finger. It’s a commemoration of all the blood, sweat and tears we put into the season.”
Here is the full ring at all angles:
It’s hard to deny the Bucs’ ring is impressive. However, is Brady right in his claim that it’s the most impressive ring he’s ever seen? Well, here are the pictures of the past Patriots rings; we’ll let you decide:
