DENTON (105.3 THE FAN) - A company in North Texas will make the New England Patriots' Super Bowl rings.

The Jostens plant in Denton has made the rings for the winners of 34 of the 53 Super Bowls.

Denton County commissioners toured the plant last week, posting a video on Facebook.

"I am so excited that not only do they make class rings, conference rings, Super Bowl rings, World Series rings, but they also make things that go around the world, such as Olympic gold medals," says Denton County Judge Andy Eads.

About 400 people work at the plant in Denton. The video walks people through the process to make the rings.

The process starts with wax molds of the ring placed in a canister that is filled with plaster. That creates outlines of the ring that are then filled with metal heated to 2,000 degrees.

The rings are cooled and then polished. Workers then start putting the stones in place.

"Who knew how many steps it takes to make a Dallas Cowboys' Super Bowl ring?" asked Commissioner Dianne Edmondson. "And they need to have another one made, I hope, before too long."

"Coming soon," Eads added.

The plant in Denton did not produce rings for Cowboys' Super Bowl titles in the 1990s but did produce some of the Cowboys earlier championship rings. The Jostens plant in Denton does produce about 600,000 rings each year.
