I really like the ring,it's not very gaudy and it fits perfect for how the Steelers do business.I can't wait for Josten's to release the info for the replica fan rings,cuz I am getting one.

And I like that it incorporates all 5 Super Bowls on it.Like Bettis said,they lived in the shadow of the 70's Steelers and walked by the those four Lombardi's every day for years.Now they finally have thier own.

Totally agree. When this current team won the Super Bowl XL it was like a weight had been lifted from the players. Those great Steel Curtain teams left a legacy that won't be matched. But at least these current players now feel they are finally on the same level as those great Steelers teams. So I think all 5 should be included as well.

Thumbs up Re: THE RINGS

Classy, beautiful rings. Seeing them just made my day. Does anyone know approximately how much the fan replicas would run? I've got a birthday coming up!

the rings were valued at about $5000 apiece. the nfl pays for 150 rings up to $5000. any additional diamonds, additions, or rings for additional personnel are funded bu the team. patriot rings were said to be valued at $20,000. the extra $15,000 apiece coming out of krafts pocket. many players (im thinking j. harrison) will take their rings in and have extra bling added on their own. this is what dave megget did with the ring he had on e-bay a few months ago.

Cleve, the NFL pays Super Bowl winning teams $5,000 per ring for up to 150 rings. So I would say the Steelers ring at least is worth $5,000.

The ring the Pats recieved for the third Super Bowl was reported to be valued at $20,000 a piece.

Yes, I know that it's BLACK and gold......... but I am a Raiders fan, and it's SILVER and black where I come from. Just a bit of off humor on my part... no offense meant .

I love the rings! I think Dan Rooney and Jerome Bettis did an awesome job in designing them in that classy Steeler style we all know and love.
