2016 Oakland Raiders Gameday 8

Super BowlRINGS The Raiders’ world championship rings — awarded to players, coaches, staff and owners after the dominating victories in Super Bowl Xl, Super Bowl XV and Super Bowl XVIII — are renowned as the most memorable pieces of championship team jewelry ever produced. The rings were produced by Lenox Awards of St. Charles, Ill., whose staff developed creative concepts incorporating the explicit guidelines established by the Raiders — white gold, a raised football-shaped crest of diamonds on a black surface and a design based on “massive excellence” that would recognize these crowning achievements by the Raider organization. The Super Bowl Xl ring design, featuring a large center diamond and 26 five-point diamonds on the ring face was developed by Al Davis, Head Coach John Madden, Executive Assistant Al LoCasale and Lenox Awards artist Elliot Ingberg. The Super Bowl XV ring design, featuring two large center diamonds to symbolize the two world championships won within five years and 33 five-point diamonds on the ring face, was developed by Al Davis, Head Coach Tom Flores, Al LoCasale and Lenox Awards president Tom Brasher. The Super Bowl XVIII ring design features three large diamonds to represent the three world championships won within eight years, each centered in a football-shaped crest plus an additional 20 five-point diamonds. The ring was developed by Al Davis, Tom Flores, Al LoCasale and Lenox Awards president Tom Marzullo. INTEREST HOLDERS A.
