Might Taylor Swift's Next Engagement Ring Contain Super Bowl Bling?

As tight end Travis Kelce and the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas Chiefs battled the Buffalo Bills Sunday night and punched their ticket to the AFC title game, CBS-TV's production crew spent a good part of the broadcast zooming in on a luxury box, where Taylor Swift and friends celebrated her boyfriend's on-field heroics that included two touchdown catches.


Just after scoring his first touchdown, Kelce made a heart sign and looked up at the suite where Swift was seated. Since September, Kelce and Swift have become one of the most talked about celebrity power couples, and speculation abounds as to when the seven-time Pro Bowler might pop the question to the 12-time Grammy Award winner.

The couple has deflected engagement rumours, but a juicy tidbit just emerged about Kelce's concepts for a "unique" and deeply symbolic ring for the love of his life.

An insider told the Daily Mail that Kelce has been talking to family and friends about the possibility of harvesting diamonds from his two Super Bowl rings and incorporating them into bridal jewellery for Swift.

“He wants to make sure it isn’t something cheesy, but more unique and something that is a part of him that he shares with her to show that forever means forever,” the insider said.

Certainly, those Super Bowl rings would yield a bonanza of diamonds and rubies.


The Chiefs’ Super Bowl LVII ring (awarded in 2023) contains 609 round diamonds, 16 baguette diamonds, four marquise diamonds and 35 custom-cut genuine rubies totalling approximately 16.10 carats.


The Super Bowl LIV ring (awarded in 2020) features 244 round diamonds, 9 baguette diamonds, two marquise diamonds, four baguette rubies and 32 custom-cut rubies for a total gem carat weight of 10.85 carats.

“Travis’ career is a major focus for the next several weeks," the insider said. "He has to get the job done. He wants another Super Bowl ring, but it is safe to say that there is room to think about Taylor."

The insider continued, "…he loves her and sees a future with her and has thought about what a ring for her would be like, as well.”

In addition to the notion of using Super Bowl gemstones in Swift's bridal rings, Kelce entertained the idea of incorporating a meaningful inscription, as well.

“He has thought of having a lyric or a quote engraved on the band that is special to both of them," the insider said.

Kelce and Swift, both 34, went public with their relationship in September of 2023, but they actually started seeing each other in July of 2023 after exchanging numbers during her Eras Tour stop in Kansas City.

Swift has been a fixture at Kansas City Chiefs' football games throughout the season, and she's been an enthusiastic fan. TV networks have acknowledged that Swift's interest in the NFL has boosted ratings — especially among younger women — and the Chiefs reported a 400% sales spike in Travis Kelce jerseys.
