Super Bowl rings have a SoFi feel

- By Gary Klein

The Rams won Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium, so their rings commemorat­ing the achievemen­t are an homage to their home venue, where they defeated the Cincinnati Bengals in February.

Rams players, coaches and team personnel received their rings Thursday night in a ceremony held at the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City. The ceremony was not open to media members or the public.

The ring was designed by L.A.-based jewelry house Jason in a “collaborat­ive effort” with Rams players and team leadership, a Rams news release said. The ring includes about 20 carats of white diamonds set on white and yellow gold, the release said. The shape of the ring mimics “architectu­ral and design elements” of SoFi Stadium, the release said. It includes a removable top that opens to reveal SoFi Stadium’s bowl, the release said. The field in the stadium “consists of remnants of the actual turf that the 2020 and 2021 seasons, including Super Bowl LVI, were played on,” the release said.

Per a team spokespers­on, among the attendees were players who were traded, retired or signed with other teams, including receiver Robert Woods, linebacker Von Miller, punter Johnny Hekker, defensive lineman Sebastian Joseph-Day, offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth and safety Eric Weddle. Freeagent receiver Odell Beckham Jr. also attended.
