CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. — The Super Bowl XLIX Champion New England Patriots received their bling over the weekend.
Players, coaches, and staff attended a private event hosted at owner Robert Kraft’s home Sunday night, which culminated in the presentation of the Super Bowl Championship rings. With 205 diamonds, they are the largest Super Bowl rings ever made. “Do your job” and “we are all patriots” are inscribed on the rings, along with Kraft’s signature.
“I have been blessed to host four Super Bowl ring ceremonies, and just like the rings we present, we have tried to make each ceremony a little bigger and a little better than the one before,” said Kraft. “Football is the consummate team sport. These championship rings represent all that the team endured and overcame together. The players on this team will forever be bound by the memories this ring represents. The presentation of the rings is one of my favorite moments. I love watching the expressions on the faces of each of our players and the range of emotions they experience when they see the ring for the first time and the pride they all have when they put it on.”
But the party wasn’t just about the bling. The team took to the dance floor with rapper Wiz Khalifa to celebrate into the night.
On February 1, 2015, the New England Patriots overcame a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter to claim a 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
