EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - 2009: Clint Sintim of the New York Giants poses for his 2009 NFL headshot at photo day in East Rutherford, New Jersey. (Photo by NFL Photos)
In March, a photo of the New York Giants' Super Bowl XLVI ring was tweeted by linebacker Clint Sintim to the public.  The 14K white gold ring was reportedly called "tacky" and ladylike by Diamond District jewelers who checked it out.  Sintim deleted his tweet hoping to put the cat back in the bag before the Giants officially released the ring design.

At the same time, Giants defensive end Justin Tuck tweeted he had no idea who was circulating the photo and claimed the photo wasn't one of the finalized ring.

Today— one day before the rings will be presented to the players and coaches at Tiffany & Co. in Manhattan—  punter Steve Weatherford tweeted another picture of the ring which, oddly,  looks identical to the one Sintim had leaked.



Even if the ring is the same design, it looks like the Giants be slipping a magnificent piece of jewelry onto their fingers representing their hard fought run to their championship victory.

The team will get their rings at a ceremony Wednesday night at Tiffany's Fifth Avenue flagship store.

The rings were designed with input from Giants co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch, general manager Jerry Reese and team captains Eli Manning, Zak DeOssie and Tuck along with representatives from Tiffany.

According to the photo Weatherford tweeted, the  top of the ring features four Lombardi Trophies to represent the number they have won in their history and the iconic "NY" logo.  On one side of the ring is the player's name and uniform number.  On the reverse side is the word "Giants" along with the final score, 21-17, of Super Bowl XLVI when Big Blue defeated the New England Patriots.

This year's ring is actually smaller than the team's 2008 version.  It features only 1.36 carat weight in diamonds.

Former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan described the Super Bowl bling four years ago as a "10-table stunner" because he bragged you could see it from 10 tables away.

Ten tables, nine tables. . . it's still a Super Bowl ring.
