Default Did the Steelers receive AFC Championship rings for last season?

Does anyone know if they got rings for winning the AFC Championship? If so, are there any pictures?

Do teams get rings for Conference Championships? If so that's news to me.

Anyway, normally sports championship rings are given to the team the following season's first home game. So if the team is to receive rings they will get them next week before the Seahawks game.

They should never make rings in pro sports that dont say world or league champs on it.

YES, the conference champions also get rings (ditto for the runners up in NHL, MLB & NBA). These are not given out prior to the home opener though (like baseball does). Super Bowl & Conference champs rings are given out in June.

No photos of the Steelers "runner up" ring from last season has yet to surface, but pics of the 1995 AFC Champs ring are easily found on Google (and attached here). Many of these 2nd place rings are fancier than the Super Bowl ring (Indy's from two years ago when they lost to New Orleans seems a lot "bling-ier" to me!).
