It has been said that the NFL will pay up to $5,000.00 for each Super Bowl ring, up to 150. Any costs over that, the individual player has to pay. Did you know Neal Dahlen has seven Super Bowl rings? Look here for more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Bowl_ring
The cost of a Super Bowl ring varies depending on the cost of gold and diamonds that season, but usually average $5000 each. The NFL pays for the production of 150 of these sparkling symbols of victory each year at an approximate total cost of $750,000.
