The NFL Super Bowl ring has grown in size since its inception.
Rings in the 1980s and 1990s looked more like high school class rings. The Super Bowl rings now take up almost a whole finger.
Looking at the size and the number of diamonds in the NFL Super Bowl ring, it brings a thought to the mind of every NFL fans: how much is an NFL Super Bowl ring worth?
What is the most expensive NFL Super Bowl ring?
Tom Brady has six Super Bowl rings with the New England Patriots. If we put together all six of those Super Bowl rings, there are a total of 1,274 diamonds in them.
With Brady having six rings, they probably add up to a good chunk of change.
The most expensive ring to be sold in an auction is the Super Bowl XXV one, which was played between the Buffalo Bills and New York Giants.
Lawrence Taylors' Super Bowl ring is worth $230,000. The Super Bowl I ring is worth $100,000.
