1980 Oakland Raiders Championship Ring

Raiders 1980 Championship Ring (NFL)

Super Bowl XV Logo

The Raiders wanted a ring of "massive elegeance" to symbolize what the team called its "finest hour," and Lenox Awards was chosen to design it. Their design guidelines were explicit: white gold with a raised football-shaped crest on a black surface. One shank of the 30 pennyweight ring commemorates the winning of the AFC and NFL championships. The other shank recognizes the players, featuring each one's name, number, position, and the Raiders' emblem. The ring's face contains 33 five-point diamonds--10 on the outside edges, 4 in the corners of the face (for the four postseason games won for the championship), and 19 on the football crest representing the 19 games played to get to the Super Bowl--and two three-quarter carat stones in the center.
