This spectacular ring was presented to Jeff Dickson, a front-office executive with the Baltimore Ravens, the same size, weight and version presented to the players. 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. “World Champions” is in relief above and below the face of the ring. The left shank features Dickson’s name 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.
In total, the Ravens' Size 9 1/2ring weighs in at 65.8 grams of gold and contains approximately 200 diamonds, the most ever for a Jostens-produced Super Bowl ring. The total diamond weight is over three carats. The inside band shows the Jostens logo and copyright logo and is stamped 14K, with scripted “Jeff” indicating the original owner. Includes the original paperwork from Jostens. Comes in 6-by-5-inch polished cherrywood box with Raven's sticker on the top.
