The New England Patriots revealed their fifth Super Bowl ring, which they earned after coming back from a 28-3 lead against the Atlanta Falcons, on Friday night before the ring ceremony.
The team is claiming that the ring is the largest in Super Bowl history, and it certainly looks the part.
Welcome to the family.

Here’s how the team described the ring.
Crafted in 10-karat white gold, the ring has a carat weight of 5.1 and features a stone count of more than 280 diamonds, including five marquise-cut diamonds representing the franchise’s five Vince Lombardi trophies. This latest Patriots Super Bowl Ring is the largest Super Bowl ring ever created and is truly a sight to behold.
Wait, more than 280? Like maybe, 283 diamonds?

Yup. 283 diamonds to reflect the 28-3 comeback by New England. That’s just mean. The Falcons really aren’t ever going to live this down, are they?
