Super Bowl champs get their rings, performance by Usher

Seahawks players received their Super Bowl XLVIII rings in a private ceremony Thursday night, and the player reveled in showing off their new bling on social media.

While the reigning NFL champs are focused on next season at their minicamp, on Thursday night Seahawks players reveled in the chance to celebrate their Super Bowl XLVIII title once more -- with some shiny new bling and a private Usher concert.

The Seahawks unveiled their championship rings at a team ceremony in downtown Seattle, with a design that "represents a distinctive tribute to this team, our fans, the Pacific Northwest and the Seahawks victory in Super Bowl XLVIII," said Seahawks president Peter McLoughlin in a statement. 

Designed by Tiffany & Co., the white gold ring features a "three-dimensional Seahawks logo of 64 round diamonds with a vibrant emerald hue," according to the team. Forty blue sapphires surround the ring top flanked by two "12" flags, referring to Seattle's "12th man," the nickname of the club's raucous fan base.

The phrases "LEAVE NO DOUBT", "24/7", SEA 43-DEN 8" and "WHAT'S NEXT?" are also engraved inside each ring.

From the look of it, the shindig was a blowout bash, even featuring a private performance from Usher.

Players appeared to have had a grand time showing off their new shiny bands at the ceremony.
