Who Receives Super Bowl Rings?

The Bling's the Thing

    The team owner has full discretion over who gets rings, and can order additional rings if necessary, although they won't be paid for by the NFL. "I don't buy expensive jewelry. I say if you're going to wear expensive jewelry you earn it," said Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman after the team's ring ceremony in 2014. In addition to the official rings made for the winning team, the company creating the rings also makes at least one additional piece for display at the NFL Hall of Fame. The display ring is considered a replica, while the official rings often include personalized engravings such as the player's name and number.
