Super Bowl Rings Have Come A Long Way Since Green Bay Packers Super Bowl I Win

With a Super Bowl win comes individual trophies for every player on the roster: Super Bowl rings. Costing upwards of $30,000, or the price of a car for most, Super Bowl rings are the picture of extravagance, a well-deserved award for Super Bowl XLV champion Green Bay this year. Though the designs are unique for every Super Bowl, the score, teams, year and markings signifying which player each ring belongs to are staples of every Super Bowl ring, giving us an idea of what the Packers' ring will look like.

As an interesting look back, check out what the first Super Bowl ring looked like, given the Packers in 1966.

Simple -- with just one diamond mounted in the center -- but elegant. Since then, however, Super Bowl rings have become extravagant, with dozens of diamonds and other gems adroning modern rings.

After the jump, we look at a few recent Super Bowl rings to get an idea of what the Packers' Super Bowl XLV ring may look like.

For comparison, here's what the Packers' Super Bowl XXXI ring looked like.

Quite the difference between 1966 and 1997.

For a more recent example, check out the Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl XLIII ring. Had the Steelers won, it's likely their ring would've resembled this, with an extra large diamond representing the team's seventh championship.

Green Bay will get to work designing the rings, a rewarding task after a hard-fought Super Bowl XLV win. The rings should be unveiled ahead of the 2011 season, or shortly after it begins.
