During a private ceremony tonight at team headquarters, the Ravens' players, coaches and staff will receive their Super Bowl rings.

The rings were designed by Jostens in consultation with players and are made of diamonds and gold. Jostens also made the Ravens' Super Bowl XXXV rings.

Here's a photo of the Super Bowl ring that the league has posted on its official website

The latest rendition of the Ravens' Super Bowl ring will be presented tonight, capping the Ravens' week of celebration that included a visit to the White House on Wednesday with President Barack Obama.

"Actually seeing the rings, for somebody like me who’s never won a thing, I might act like a woman when she sees her engagement ring," said Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith, a former University of Maryland standout. "I can’t wait. I can’t wait.”

Ravens coach John Harbaugh acknowledged that he's looking forward to seeing the actual rings.

"No, I’ve seen a model of them," Harbaugh said. "I haven’t seen the rings. I haven’t been allowed to. They were locked up yesterday. They came in a Brinks truck.”

For the Ravens, this week represents turning the page on last season and another opportunity to savor their victory over the San Francisco 49ers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans in February.

"It’s always refreshing when you go out places and they acknowledge you as a Super Bowl champ," running back Ray Rice said. "But, for me, the old saying, ‘An old pat on the back, will always set you back.’ We appreciate it. The rings are going to be very special to us. You’ll never take them for granted.

"But having that White House, ring ceremony, back to work, really puts it in perspective of where we are right now. Once we get our rings, I guess you get to say … Summertime when you go home, take some pictures with them, lock them up and take them out on a nice dinner date, I guess.”
