Seahawks release with info on the Super Bowl rings

Here is the official release from the Seahawks with info on the Super Bowl rings the team received tonight:

The Seattle Seahawks received their Super Bowl XLVIII championship rings at a private ceremony tonight in downtown Seattle.

The design of the ring, which was made by Tiffany & Co., was created after several meetings that included Seahawks owner Paul G. Allen, head coach Pete Carroll, general manager John Schneider, president Peter McLoughlin and other Seahawks executives.

“The design of the first Seahawks Super Bowl ring represents a distinctive tribute to this team, our fans, the Pacific Northwest and the Seahawks victory in Super Bowl XLVIII,” said Seahawks President Peter McLoughlin.

The white gold Seahawks Super Bowl XLVIII championship ring features a three-dimensional Seahawks logo of 64 round diamonds with a vibrant emerald hue tsavorite eye. The iconic logo is outlined in blue and is framed by 12 diamonds. The Vince Lombardi Trophy, comprised of one marquis diamond, stands in the background amongst a sea of 107 round diamonds with a border reading “WORLD CHAMPIONS”. Forty blue sapphires surround the ring top flanked by two “12″ flags.

The shank, or sides of the ring, tells the story of the championship season. One shank includes the team’s final record of 16-3, a southward view of CenturyLink Field with the “12″ flag and Mt. Rainier, highlighted with the individual player’s name and number. The other side features the Seattle skyline, Vince Lombardi Trophy with a marquis diamond, Super Bowl XLVIII logo and NFL shield.

The ring band features 12 feathers, similar to the markings on the team uniforms. The phrases “LEAVE NO DOUBT”, “24/7″, “SEA 43- DEN 8″ and “WHAT’S NEXT?” are engraved inside each ring.

“Super Bowl XLVIII marked monumental firsts. It was the first time that the world’s most-watched sporting event took place in New York, the city where Tiffany & Co. was born more than 177 years ago; and also marked the first championship victory for the Seattle Seahawks,” said Victoria Reynolds, Group Director of Business Sales for Tiffany & Co. “Having crafted the Vince Lombardi Trophy since its inception in 1969, we are proud to have now also crafted the first Seattle Seahawks Championship ring – both being the purest symbols of hard work and perseverance.”

Smartphone users may download, or update, to version 2.0 of the Seahawks Mobile Application for their chance to virtually wear the ring. Fans are invited to share their images on social media by using the hashtag #SuperBowlRing.
