 NEW YORK (AP) -The New York Giants will get their final reward for winning the Super Bowl when they are given their championship rings.
The private ceremony will be held Thursday night at Tiffany and Co. It will bring an end to a four-month celebration that followed the Giants' stunning 17-14 win over the previously unbeaten New England Patriots in the Super Bowl on Feb. 3 in Glendale, Ariz.
In the ensuing days, coach Tom Coughlin and his team were given a ticket-tape parade in New York City, followed by a celebration at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
The Giants took a trip to the White House for a visit with President Bush in late April.
Now come the rings.
The white gold sparklers have about 1.5 carats in diamonds and feature the team's three Super Bowl trophies - signifying the Giants' Super Bowl XXI, XXV and XLII victories.
The team's ``NY'' logo is set in round diamonds, while ``World Champions'' is emblazoned in raised letters on the top and bottom bezel, with channel set diamonds on the left and right bezel.
The ring's shanks celebrate the 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.
Tiffany previously has 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.
