Tiffany & Co. Makes the NFL’s Vince Lombardi Trophy. Who Knew?
The National Football League’s Most Coveted Prize Comes From Fashion’s Own Tiffany & Co.
While jewelry enthusiasts everywhere dream of unwrapping Tiffany & Co.’s famous Blue Box, NFL players like recent Superbowl MVP Tom Brady hope to one day get their hands on another iconic Tiffany creation: the Vince Lombardi Trophy. The luxury jeweler has been in the business of creating this emblem of athletic achievement—as well as nearly all of the major sporting championship trophies—for more than a century and a half.
Awarded annually to the winning Super Bowl team, the Vince Lombardi Trophy is arguably one of the most recognizable symbols of sports excellence in the world. Named after legendary NFL coach Vince Lombardi who led the Green Bay Packers to victories in the first two Super Bowl games, the iconic trophy measures 22 inches high and weighs 7 pounds.
At Tiffany’s Cumberland, R.I., hollowware workshop, skilled silversmiths and metal spinners meticulously mold, shape and carve the sterling silver trophy into an exquisite, life-size football that sits atop an expanded three-sided kicking tee sculpture. Delicate designs and intricate details are also carefully hammered into the precious metal, creating an elegant touch that beautifully replicates the regulation-sized ball.
The gridiron never looked so glamorous.
