I do like the sapphires and the tribute to the 12th man on the side of the rings, but they could have used more blue and green to color in the bird's head. Even with the green eye, their logo doesn't stand out at all. Way too much going on in the inside of the ring. Two quotes, the score, and Tiffany's brand, they could have simplified that a bit.

I'm a Steeler fan and I think it looks pretty good.

I saw the rings once at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH. They have them all in a long display case.

The thing that struck me about them is how big they are. I don't know how anyone could actually wear them for any real length of time.

Grant Wistrom used to come into the bar I worked at in St Louis and if he had more than two women with him (which was most of the time) he would have his on. It is HUGE for sure.

I've seen a few World Series rings (got to wear one once, I think I shared that photo here). They do not look as huge, but seem to have better designs.

I've also seen Bernie Kosar's NCAA and Super Bowl rings in person when Bernie came into the bar I was working at and they were beautiful. I asked which one he got paid more to win, and he grinned and said it was about equal.

My problem with the ring, especially after looking at the link with all the other rings, is that it is too monochromatic. The metal needed to be a different shade of grey/silver than the stone, or there needed to be more relief work to darken up the negative space.

Definitely my least favorite ring so far.

This "Jags are so tough and can win it this time" talk is getting dangerously close to Arizona Cardinals/Chicago Cubs territory. When they show me they can win when it counts, I'll believe it.
