EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Big Upset. Big Super Bowl ring.
The New York Giants unveiled the design of their Super Bowl championship ring on Tuesday, a white gold sparkler that will feature about 1.5 carats in diamonds.
The new ring will even make seven-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Strahan happy.
Shortly after New York won the championship with a 17-14 win over the previously undefeated New England Patriots, Strahan said he wanted a ``10-table ring.''
Loosely defined: He wanted a ring that could be seen 10 tables away in a restaurant.
``There was some discussion about maybe one of the rings was too big,'' said center Shaun O'Hara, who was among group of players and team executives who designed the ring with officials from Tiffany and Co.
``I threw out the fact that it was a big win, it was a huge win, so the ring should be designed accordingly,'' O'Hara said. ``Michael said it best when he said he wanted a 10-table ring. I think everybody is going to be very pleased with the design. It is very clean, very classy, but at the same time it is very strong.''
The ring's top is covered in diamonds and features three Super Bowl trophies accented with marquise diamonds signifying the Giants' Super Bowl XXI, XXV and XLII victories. The team's ``NY'' logo is in bead set round diamonds, while ``World Champions'' is emblazoned in raised letters on the top and bottom bezel, with channel set diamonds on left and right bezel.
The ring's shanks celebrate the Giants' season, noting the team's ``Eleven Straight on the Road,'' an NFL record; the NFL shield; and player name, along with player number in raised letters appear on one shank.
The final score, ``Super Bowl XLII,'' date (02.03.08) and 'AZ' appear on the other shank.
Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon would not disclose the price of the ring.
Tiffany has previously created Super Bowl championship rings for the Washington Redskins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The company annually creates the NFL Vince Lombardi Super Bowl Trophy at its workshop in Parsippany, about 30 minutes from Giants Stadium.
The rings will be presented to the Giants players and coaches at a ceremony later in the spring.
