2000 Baltimore Ravens Championship Ring

Ravens 2000 Championship Ring (Jostens)

Super Bowl XXXV Logo

Manufactured at Josten's Princeton, Ill., plant, the Ravens' championship ring is a bold "across-the-finger" style cast in 14-karat yellow gold. The bezel (top) is contoured to symbolize the football stadium and surrounded at the base with 40 diamonds. Looking into the top of this massive ring, the Raven logo appears, crafted in 18-karat yellow gold and set with 63 brilliant yellow diamonds. The bold bird, with a white gold, diamond set beak and ruby eye, is mounted upon an amethyst (purple) base stone, recreating the Ravens colors. The backdrop for the gleaming Raven mascot is a football field crafted in white gold and channel set square diamonds.

The shanks (sides) of the ring are modeled with significant elements and symbols of the Ravens' championship season. The left shank features the individual players name and number and the Ravens shield and inscription, "Set the Standard" (a phrase from the Baltimore franchise's mission statement). The right shank includes the 2000 Super Bowl XXXV logo, score banner (Ravens 34 - Giants 7) and the Vince Lombardi trophy rising out of the PSINet stadium. Both shanks bear the inscription, INVICTUS - the title of a presentation given to the team during last year's training camp by Art Berg, a well-known motivational speaker and world-class wheelchair athlete.

In total, the Ravens' ring weighs 37 pennyweight (an average men's ring weighs 12 pennyweight) and contains approximately 200 diamonds, the most ever for a Jostens-produced Super Bowl ring. The total diamond weight is over three carats. "Jostens is proud and excited to have crafted the Baltimore Ravens' Super Bowl rings," said Al Nuness, Jostens vice president of sports sales. "These rings are symbolic of the dedication and excellence it takes to become a champion. They are a fitting memento of one of sports ultimate achievements."
