The Denver Broncos received their diamond-encrusted championship rings Sunday night at a private party celebrating their Super Bowl 50 title.

Injured cornerback Aqib Talib and outside linebacker Von Miller, mired in a contract stalemate, both attended the ceremony.

Peyton Manning, who retired a month after the Broncos' 24-10 win over Carolina, sported his new ring on his right hand and the one he won with the Colts in 2007 on his left.

The Jostens rings, topping 5.05 carats, were packed with 212 diamonds set in a 10 karat white-and-yellow-gold ring. They feature the Super Bowl 50 logo and the team's three Lombardi Trophies placed above the team's logo on a field of pave-set diamonds.

The Bronco mane and eyeball were created from orange sapphires while the head features pave-set diamonds and custom-cut corundum blue stone. The sides feature 56 stones representing the team's 56-year history and the top and bottom edges each feature 15 stones to mark the team's 15 wins during the 2015 season and their 15 titles.

One side features the player's name and number and the other features an image of the Lombardi Trophy, which is surrounded by the words "This one's for Pat," which GM John Elway said after the game in honor of team owner Pat Bowlen, who is fighting Alzheimer's.

"As a kid, you just dream about winning Super Bowls," running back C.J. Anderson said on DenverBroncos.com. "Those 53 guys in that room today -- you can't take that from them. We're world champions for Super Bowl 50, and we're going to enjoy this."
