Championship rings just keep getting bigger and bigger and blingier and blingier. Apparently, the New York Giants have no plans of discontinuing the trend because their Super Bowl ring will probably have to be delivered in wheelbarrow. The ring has a whopping 1.5 carats of diamonds and, as Michael Strahan put it, is a “10-table ring,” meaning it can be seen from 10 tables away in a restaurant.
There was some discussion about maybe one of the rings was too big,” said center Shaun O’Hara, who was among group of players and team executives who designed the ring with officials from Tiffany and Co.
“I threw out the fact that it was a big win, it was a huge win, so the ring should be designed accordingly,” O’Hara said. “Michael said it best when he said he wanted a 10-table ring. I think everybody is going to be very pleased with the design. It is very clean, very classy, but at the same time it is very strong.
O’Hara forgot to mention gaudy, blinding and heavy as hell.
