On This Date: Seahawks Receive Super Bowl XLVIII Championship Rings

A look back at a memorable moment in Seahawks history that occurred on June 19


The Seahawks receive their Super Bowl XLVIII championship rings in a private ceremony at the EMP Museum in downtown Seattle. Players and coaches came together to celebrate a season that saw the club claim its first Lombardi Trophy in franchise history.

"We're here tonight to honor the dedication and drive of so many people in this room," Seahawks owner Paul Allen said that night. "Our new rings and the championship they commemorate represent the capstones of this franchise's achievements to date. It took a special team, special coaches and special fans to make this moment a reality. And here we are celebrating this special night together."

The white-gold ring, made by Tiffany & Co., was designed by Allen, head coach Pete Carroll, Executive VP/General Manager John Schneider, team president Peter McLoughlin, and other Seahawks executives.

It features a Seahawks logo made up of 64 round diamonds with an emerald hue tsavorite eye. The team's logo is outlined in blue and framed by 12 diamonds. A diamond Vince Lombardi Trophy sits behind the logo surrounded by 107 round diamonds with the phrase "World Champions" on the ring's borders. Forty blue sapphires surround the ring top with two 12 Flags on either side.

"The design of the first Seahawks Super Bowl ring represents a distinctive tribute to this team, our fans, the Pacific Northwest and the Seahawks victory in Super Bowl XLVIII," said McLoughlin.

The sides of the ring help tell the story of the team's season, displaying the club's final record of 16-3, a view of CenturyLink Field, the 12 Flag, and Mt. Rainier, each individual's name and number, the Seattle skyline, Super Bowl XLVIII logo, and NFL shield. Inside each ring are the phrases "Leave No Doubt", "24/7", "What's Next?", and "SEA 43-DEN 8" - the final score of that year's Super Bowl between the Seahawks and Denver Broncos at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium.
