Every Super Bowl Champion, every NBA Championship winner receives a unique ring as a physical award for their achievement.
And now Kerry have introduced a similar concept to GAA.
Thanks @johnrossjewellers and @kellihersgarage for sponsoring the fab hand crafted rings for us last night. #classy pic.twitter.com/2EchPJOCbP

According to Tony Leen in The Irish Examiner today, it was Kieran Donaghy who came up with the idea. Every member of the All-Ireland winning panel along with management and backroom staff received a ring, 49 being created in total.
All-Ireland medals along with the rings were presented at banquet in Killarney at the weekend.
Love that @Kerry_Official gave championship rings to players. Always thought senior champs should get these #classy pic.twitter.com/4fQaG6HlqJ
