Last night, the Philadelphia Eagles gathered for a private ceremony where Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie unveiled their championship rings. And all we can say is holy Bling Bling!
The ring is made of pure 10-karat white gold, with a total of 219 diamonds and 17 rare green sapphires. There are 127 diamonds on the bezel to represent the combined jersey numbers of the three players who touched the football during the Philly Special — running back Corey Clement (30), tight end Trey Burton (88) and quarterback Nick Foles (9).
But that’s not all. There’s also an “underdog” mask inscribed on the inside of the ring. And the phrase “We All We Got, We All We Need” and the word “family” are featured as well.
“It was an incredible season, and I wanted this ring to represent all the love, dedication, trust and resilience of this football team and this organization,” Lurie said. “This ring is for all of us, and I’m very, very proud of what we’ve accomplished.”
The rings were handed out one by one, complete with a highlight video of each team member playing on a large video screen as they walked up the aisle and received them from Lurie.
Really big team, really big rings. #FlyEaglesFly

Now that they have their rings, coach Doug Pederson says it’s time to put an end to the celebration tour and to focus on the season ahead.
