Although pics are a little hard to come by here is a link to the TP website where you can see various shots of players wearing it and some odd fashion choices too.

The Times-Picayune Pics (http://photos.nola.com/4500/gallery/saints_super_bowl_ring_ceremony/index.html)

and some blurb ripped from the Sports Ill. site:

The yellow-gold ring features a felur-de-lis -- the symbol of both the team and New Orleans -- made up of several dozen diamonds on top. There are 44 diamonds around the edges to commemorate the 44th Super Bowl, which New Orleans won over Indianapolis in Miami on Feb. 7. And there are also 16 diamonds -- eight on each side of the fleur-de-lis -- to symbolize the number of games the Saints won last season.

On one side of the ring is a carved image of the triple-spired St. Louis Cathedral, the Louisiana Superdome, a scene from the Saints' championship parade and the first few musical notes of "When the Saints Go Marching In."

On the other side is the final score of the title game (Saints 31, Colts 17) along with the date and location of the first Super Bowl in which the now 44-year-old franchise played.

On the underside of the ring are inscriptions of team mottos from last season: Be Special; Finish Strong; and Smell Greatness.
