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