Ever seen a Pro Football Hall of Fame ring? Check out Andre Reed's bling (12:16 PM)
Yahoo! Sports: The hands that had 951 career receptions during a sparkling 16-year NFL career now has some Pro Football Hall of Fame bling and Yahoo Sports has the first look at Andre Reed's Ring of Excellence. Set in 14K gold with a total diamond weight of 1¾ carats, Reed will receive his ring this Sunday when the Buffalo Bills honor him at halftime. Reed spent 15 years with the Bills and had all but 10 of his career receptions with one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history. Reed could never get a Super Bowl ring with the Bills, despite four trips to the Super Bowl, but the group that has a Hall of Fame ring is much more exclusive. On one side of the ring is Reed's likeness along with his position and years played (Which leads to the question of will ‘Personal Punt Protector’ be on Tim Tebow’s ring? Ah, never mind). Each Hall of Fame ring is produced by Kay Jewelers, the official jewelry store of the Pro Football Hall of Fame as well as the official designer of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Ring. Every enshrinement begins with Kay, apparently. The diamonds on the ring create a stadium-like effect upon first glance and the large blue gemstone was chosen to project the “ confidence, power and integrity ” of those in the Hall of Fame. Opposite of Reed's likeness on the ring is the Pro Football Hall of Fame's logo as well as the year of his acceptance to the hall.  The No. 285 emblazoned on the ring refers to his personal induction number, determined each year alphabetically among that year’s recipients. Here are more angles of Reed's ring:
