SEATTLE -- A perfect union: the Seahawks and the Super Bowl. Now they have the rings to prove it.

The Seahawks received their Super Bowl XLVIII championship rings at a private ceremony in downtown Seattle Thursday night.

The ring, made by Tiffany & Co., was specially designed with input by Seahawks owner Paul Allen, head coach Pete Carroll, general manager John Schneider and other Seahawks executives.

"The design of the first Seahawks Super Bowl ring represents a distinctive tribute to this team, our fans, the Pacific Northwest and the Seahawks victory in Super Bowl XLVIII," said Seahawks President Peter McLoughlin.

The white gold Seahawks Super Bowl XLVIII championship ring features a three-dimensional Seahawks logo of 64 round diamonds with an emerald hue tsavorite eye.  The iconic logo is outlined in blue and is framed by 12 diamonds.

The Vince Lombardi Trophy, comprised of one marquis diamond, is in the background with 107 round diamonds and a border reading "WORLD CHAMPIONS."  Forty blue sapphires surround the ring top flanked by two "12" flags.

The sides of the ring tells the story of the championship season.  One side includes the team's final record of 16-3, a southward view of CenturyLink Field with the "12" flag and Mt. Rainier, highlighted with the individual player's name and number. 

The other side features the Seattle skyline, Vince Lombardi Trophy with a marquis diamond, Super Bowl XLVIII logo and NFL shield.

The players, team, and even owner Paul Allen rushed to show-off their rings on Twitter and Instagram:
