The first weekend in February holds importance in the sports world at large for one reason— the Super Bowl. Even if you’re not a super sports fan, you’ve probably found yourself at a tailgate party tuning in (or just watching the ads and halftime show). For those who had to Google which teams are playing this Sunday, here is a fashion factoid for the less-than-sporty spectators of the Big Game: Tiffany & Co. makes the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Tiffany & Co. created the iconic trophy back in 1967 based on a quick sketch on a napkin by former VP Oscar Riedener, and the jeweler has been producing the trophy every year since. In 1970, it was renamed for the famed Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi. The design includes a regulation-sized football perched atop a stand, suspended in midair, entirely composed of Tiffany’s finest sterling silver. The trophy weighs in at seven pounds and takes almost four months to complete. Tiffany’s employs traditional silversmith techniques when making the trophy, ensuring the trophy will stand the test of time and represent the integrity of the team’s success.

The same workshop that has created some of the most recognizable jewelry for the last 200 years is also responsible for hand-engraving the name of the winning team after the Super Bowl. Tiffany & Co. also creates sports trophies for the U.S. Open, The World Series, and the NBA Championship. Don’t the most winning athletes in the world deserve the world’s best hardware on their shelves?
