    Back on topic.. that ring is pure sex.

    STEELERS SUPER BOWL XLIII RING

    In creating the ring that would recognize the first NFL franchise to win six Super Bowl championships, the Steelers wanted each of the different elements of the piece to reflect the historical significance of the accomplishment.

    Six round, brilliant cut diamonds surround the Steelers logo to draw the eye to the ring crest, with each gem signifying a Super Bowl victory. The Steelers logo is formed with yellow, red and blue stones in the shape of hypocycloids sitting atop a football-shaped design created with 32 round diamonds. Seven diamonds at each tip of the football recognize the team’s seven AFC Championships and when combined, the 14 diamonds signify the number of Division titles in Steelers history.

    One side of the ring depicts six Lombardi Trophies rising from Heinz Field to recognize the support and loyalty of Steelers fans. The score of the game – Pittsburgh 27, Arizona 23 – flanks the Lombardi trophies, with the official logo of Super Bowl XLIII on a field of green enamel included as well.

    The opposing side of the ring is personalized with each individual player’s name and jersey number. That side also incorporates the Steelers helmet and the NFL shield to acknowledge both team and league.

    The ring is cast in 14 karat yellow gold with black antique backgrounds to reflect the Steelers’ colors. The Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl XLIII ring weighs 104 grams (approximately 3.7 ounces) and incorporates 63 round, brilliant cut diamonds totaling 3.61 carats.

    Love it, beautiful, and in very good taste. They did the "six" as round diamonds prolly cause there are now too many Lombardis to do them as footballs/Lombardis (would look tacky). They have the 6 Lombardi's on one side of the ring, with Heinz Field representing the fans. I like the 3 hypocylcoids for our logo. The ring is quite elegant!

    Awesome!!!

    It says that the 14 diamonds on the front signify the Steelers division titles. But, I thought they have 19 now. It's funny, we have so many division championships that they can't fit all of them on the ring.

    Sharkmark, you are right about the number of division titles being 19 (not 14). Hmm.
