Super Bowl rings 2014: Seahawks need to be fitted

Chris Graythen

Since the Packers won the first Super Bowl in 1967, the rings have been evolving into something almost larger than a house.

On Sunday night, the Seattle Seahawks took home their first championship by crushing the Denver Broncos 43-8 at MetLife Stadium in Super Bowl XLVIII. Seattle's dominance has earned them one more task: designing their own Super Bowl rings. Each player on the roster along with every coach and front office member will receive one.

The rings earned by the Baltimore Ravens for winning Super Bowl XLVII contained 243 round cut diamonds and had a total weight of 380 grams. That's far removed from the ring awarded to the Green Bay Packers following Super Bowl I that featured a single diamond at the center of a gold ring.

Winners of the Super Bowl collaborate with the company commissioned to create the ring and work together to held design the ring. The NFL gives teams an allowance of $5,000 per ring, with the team picking up any additional cost. That cost has increased throughout the years, as you might expect.

As the rings have evolved, (click for a collage of every Super Bowl ring ever awarded), the Dallas Cowboys have been responsible for much of the extravagant evolution of Super Bowl rings. Teams such as the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants have traditionally settled for more modest models.
