Moment Travis Kelce, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs saw their Super Bowl LVIII rings for the FIRST time at glitzy celebration night

Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes were aghast when they set their sights on the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl LVIII rings for the first time. 

The pair were jubilant when they opened up personalized boxes containing the rings at a ceremony in Kansas City Thursday night. 

The quarterback and the tight end both added the lavish piece of jewelry to their hands as they held their three rings up to the camera. 

This year’s ring, which was made by Jostens, contains 529 diamonds apiece — 505 round diamonds, 19 baguette diamonds and five marquise diamonds — along with 38 rubies in the team’s signature color

Of course, it isn’t all for show.

The team explained that there’s plenty of symbolism, starting with the interlocking arrowhead logo made from 16 custom-cut rubies to represent the 16 division titles in franchise history.

The word ‘world’ features 39 diamonds to represent the number of touchdowns the team scored last season, while the corresponding word ‘champions’ contains 70 diamonds to represent the points scored in the Chiefs’ three AFC playoff wins. 

The underside of the ring also features a diagram of the game-winning play that saw the Chiefs defeat the San Francisco 49ers in overtime back in February. 

Earning back-to-back Super Bowl championships is an incredibly difficult and rare feat. It helps define legacies for franchises, coaches, players, and is a testament to the commitment and dedication that is required from everyone in the organization,’ Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. 

‘This incredible piece of wearable art is a true symbol of the journey that the team took to secure the franchise’s fourth Lombardi Trophy, and we couldn’t be prouder to represent Chiefs Kingdom as champions once again,’ he added. 

Kelce arrived at the ceremony looking red hot, opting for a bold all-red ensemble.

‘Smooth operator baby,’ he was heard saying as he walked down the red carpet.

When asked what inspired the ensemble, the athlete responded, ‘Chiefs Kingdom, baby,’ per reporter Matt Derrick.

Fans would be forgiven for thinking Kelce may have taken a page out of his girlfriend Taylor Swift’s book, who became synonymous with the color red after dropping an album of the same name in 2012. 

Meanwhile, Mahomes opted for a black suit jacket, which was bedazzled with black stones.

He also accessorized with a stack of silver necklaces and a matching chain bracelet.   

Just hours before things got underway, Kelce built anticipation for the new piece of jewelry in a teaser video shared by the Chiefs on social media.

The Catching Kelce alum was seen holding three fingers in the air – to mark the third Super Bowl win of his career – while pointing to his ring finger. 

Whether intentional or not, Swift’s legion of fans thought the clip was a cheeky nod to engagement rumors swirling around the couple.
