GiveMeSport

The Baltimore Ravens have completed their Super Bowl celebrations by picking up their championship rings, an award given to every winner of the Super Bowl.

The rings have the Ravens emblem in the middle with two Super Bowl trophies in the background, representing each of the Baltimore side's Super Bowl wins.

The Ravens won this year's Super Bowl in February after last picking up the trophy in 2001.

The only player to play in both matches for the Ravens is linebacker Ray Lewis, who retired after the win over the San Francisco 49ers having spent his whole career at the Baltimore side.

Lewis told Sporting Life: "To have two of them on my hand right now is the ultimate. There's no better way to go out."

The Ravens won the XLVII Super Bowl after beating the 49ers 34-31 having beaten the New York Giants 12 years previously.

The ring ceremony marks the end of the celebrations for winning the famous NFL event with the Jostens Championship Design rings containing 243 round cut diamonds and weighing in at around 3.75 carats.
