Fashioned from 14-karat yellow gold and blanketed in diamonds, the Tiffany & Co. ring reflects the spirit and power of the 2002 Buccaneers. The face features a depiction of the Vince Lombardi Trophy, the base of which is set with three rectangular modified brilliant diamonds. The trophy is surrounded by 50 sparkling round diamonds set in white gold. The face also bears a football, which is studded with a marquis diamond. This is the exact same "A" version of the ring presented to players; at 63.19 grams of solid gold the Size 17 ring was presented to a stadium sponsor, Advanced Auto Parts. Details of the Bucs’ Super Bowl XXXVII championship are commemorated on the sides of the ring. On one side, the cities of the contending teams (Tampa Bay and Oakland) appear, along with the game’s score date and location (48-21, January 26, 2003, in San Diego, California), and the Super Bowl and NFL shield logos. The ring’s other side displays the "Advance" engraved on a banner and captures the team’s spirit with a Buccaneer flag, palm trees and a seagoing pirate ship reminiscent of the ship that stands in the north end zone of Raymond James Stadium. Comes in the proper presentation box (same as the players received) from Tiffany & Co. at 5 inches square and 2 1/2 inches deep. All elements are in essentially as-issued and problem-free condition.
