LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Rams unveiled their Super Bowl LVI rings Thursday night with what the team said is the heaviest weight in the history of a sports championship ring.
The rings were unveiled in a private ceremony the night before the Rams’ coaching staff are due to show up for training camp in Irvine, Calif.
The top of the ring features the Rams logo in blue and yellow sapphires, the Lombardi trophy and two palm trees. Underneath the removable top of the ring is a view of SoFi Stadium surrounded by a piece of a Super Bowl LVI game ball. The field under the roof consists of remnants of SoFi Stadium turf from the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
Each ring has approximately 20 carats of white diamonds set on white and yellow gold to represent the official opening of SoFi Stadium in 2020.
💎 Most carat weight in the history of a sports championship ring.
The Super Bowl LVI rings out in all its glory.

The Rams have also chosen to represent January 12 and honor three dates in franchise history with 1.12 carats of diamonds. On January 12, 2016, the Rams were approved to return to Los Angeles; on January 12, 2017, the Rams hired Sean McVay as coach; and on January 12, 2019, the Rams beat the Dallas Cowboys for their first playoff win since returning to LA
The final results of each playoff game of the 2021 season are on the bottom of the ring. The two stones on each side of the ring represent the four teams that beat the Rams in the playoffs to win Super Bowl LVI: the Arizona Cardinals, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Cincinnati Bengals .
The ring design was a collaborative effort between Rams players, team leadership and Los Angeles-based Beverly Hills jewelry house Jason.
“To not only be able to win the Super Bowl, but to be able to do that at the home that Mr. Kroenke built is truly a dream come true,” Tony Pastoors, the Rams’ vice president of football and business affairs, said in a statement. “We are grateful to Jason and his team for their creativity and passion to deliver a championship ring that reflects our team and their historic season, the unique stadium where it happened and the city that inspired it all. “
