Diamonds are forever, but what about engraved gold?

On Thursday, June 13, the Kansas City Chiefs received their Super Bowl rings at a private ceremony held in the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City.

The social media accounts for the Chiefs and Jostens, the memorabilia company of school yearbooks and Super Bowl rings, posted a video showcasing all the details of the ring. There are 505 round diamonds, 19 baguette diamonds, 5 marquis diamonds, and 38 custom-cut rubies designed with white and yellow gold that brings total amount the ring to $40,000. While the official Jostens website is not selling the actual $40,000 Super Bowl LVIII ring, they are selling a $14,200 version of the ring – obviously with less diamonds.

For many of the players, like quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce, this is their third ring with the Chiefs they’re receiving in five years, winning in 2020 and 2022. Among the many details on the ring, “BACK-TO-BACK” is added to highlight the team’s 2022 Super Bowl win against the Philadelphia Eagles. Both the Chiefs and Jostens posted visual breakdowns for every symbolic detail, including a hinged ring top that opens to show the Tom & Jerry play from Mahomes to Mecole Hardman that won the team in overtime.

However, eagle-eyed fans looking at these details noticed a small, but permanent mistake. Inside of the ring band are the final scores of all four playoff games and opponent playoff seeds, which is “a nod to the toughest playoff run in NFL history.” The Chiefs went up against the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, and the San Francisco 49ers. When Sport Illustrated’s Arrowhead Report Editor Joshua Brisco posted the rings, user @MVPatty15 pointed out, “Tell me I’m wrong and that they didn’t mess up the Dolphins playoff seed…” Brisco quote reposted with evidence that proves his follower correct.


No word if there will be corrections made to the rings, but all things considered, it’s not the worst typo ever made on a piece of jewelry.
