The Denver Broncos received their rings for winning Super Bowl 50 during a private ceremony at Sports Authority Field on Sunday.

Among the players on hand to pick up their rings were retired quarterback Peyton Manning, injured cornerback Aqib Talib and linebacker Von Miller, who is currently negotiating a new contract with the team. Broncos all-time greats Shannon Sharpe, Rod Smith and Terrell Davis were also among those to attend the event.

The 5.05 carat rings features 212 diamonds set in a 10 karat white-and-gold ring. The ring features the Broncos logo, along with three Lombardi trophies and the number 50. On one side of the ring is the recipient’s name, and on the other the phrase “This one’s for Pat,” a tribute to owner Pat Bowlen.

The rings came in padlocked boxes, with former players passing out the keys that opened them. 

“It’s very special,” Manning said. “These don’t go away. I pulled out my Indianapolis Colts ring tonight. Hadn’t worn it in nine years. I wore it for about two weeks after we received our rings in the summer of 2007, and then I’ve had it in storage. So I pulled it out tonight.”

The Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers 24–10 to win their third Super Bowl title in franchise history.
