Here are the extravagant rings given to Super Bowl champions over the years

Jostens

Each year, the National Football League gives teams playing in the Super Bowl an allowance of about $A6,327 for each impeccably crafted, diamond-encrusted champion ring.

For 150 rings, the cost comes to about $A950,000. The teams foot the bill for going over-budget.

But for the victors, the value of the ring is beyond money.

“It isn’t just diamond and gold,” Jerry Kramer, a former Green Bay Packer player who won the first Super Bowl in 1966, told ESPN. “It’s a collection of memories and moments.”

Founded in 1897, Jostens has been the primary supplier of Super Bowl rings for over 50 years. The Minneapolis jeweler forges each ring by hand and personalizes it with the player’s name.

Jostens provided us with photos of the Super Bowl rings they’ve made since Super Bowl I.
