Giant Super Bowl rings stolen!

Thieves broke into a jewelry company over the weekend and stole up to $2 million in gold, gems and other valuables, including Super Bowl rings made for New York Giants staff members, authorities said.

The thieves disabled the alarm system at E.A. Dion Inc., cut a hole in the roof and made off with a safe that weighed at least 1,000 pounds. The Super Bowl rings made by the company were to be given to the Giants staff members to commemorate the team’s win over the New England Patriots, team spokesman Pat Hanlon said.

The players and coaches had already received their rings last month. The staffers were to receive identical ones—white gold rings with the “NY” logo is set in diamonds and “World Champions” emblazoned in raised letters. They were designed by Tiffany and Co. and have a retail value at $25,000 each, the team said.
