Lot 662: Pittsburgh Steelers Superbowl XL Championship Ring With Presentation Box
UPDATE: NOTE: THE ACTUAL RING SIZE IS A 9.5. The description for this lot has been added to from that showing in the catalog.
The 2005 Pittsburgh Steelers became the first sixth-seed in NFL history to win both a divisional playoff game and a conference championship, becoming just the second team to win three road games en route to the Super Bowl title. And here's the dazzling championship ring that accompanied that monumental achievement, cast in 14-karat yellow gold. The face of the ring features the team logo and five Super Bowl trophies with a black onyx base. There are three natural stones - yellow sapphire, blue sapphire and ruby - comprising the team logo. The top ridge reads: PITTSBURGH and the bottom: WORLD CHAMPIONS. The left panel bears the name JONES and the NFL logo. The right panel displays the score - STEELERS 21 Seahawks 10 - the year - 2005 - and the Super Bowl logo. In all, there are 49 genuine diamonds and the ring is size 9.5. Comes in original box. This ring is a massive - 53.5 grams. The inside of the ring is engraved (faint) with "JOSTENS 14K" and is the same size and style as what the players received. It also comes with the original Jostens paperwork.
