Super Bowl trophy took Tiffany four months to make

Chiefs Buccaneers Super Bowl Football

The Super Bowl Vince Lombardi Trophy, which was won after last night’s game by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, took Tiffany & Co four months to create.

Tiffany & Co congratulated the Tampa Bay team on their victory in Super Bowl LV, after the Buccaneers won 31-9 against the Kansas City Chiefs and picked up the jewellery brand’s latest incarnation of the trophy.

It is 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 (56cm) high and weighs in at seven pounds (3.2kg), with Tiffany first awarding the trophy in 1967 and producing a new iteration every year since.

Nowadays, it is moulded, shaped and carved of sterling silver at Tiffany’s Cumberland, Rhode Island hollowware workshop over the course of four months.

It was originally produced in Newark, New Jersey and later elsewhere in New Jersey, before the operation relocated to Rhode island in 2017.

The trophy features an NFL regulation-sized football that sits atop an expanded three-sided kicking tee.

Tiffany had a dramatic 2020 as its relationship with suitor LVMH took a sour turn, with both Tiffany and its buyer taking legal action against one another as the deal began to look dead in the water.

The pair eventually made up and are now undergoing a transition period. Read more below:
