Tiffany & Co. is proud to congratulate the Kansas City Chiefs on their victory at Super Bowl® LVII, winning one of the most coveted trophies in American sports, the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
First designed and handcrafted by Tiffany & Co. for the inaugural Super Bowl® I in 1967, the Vince Lombardi Trophy symbolizes the pinnacle of gridiron glory. Three years after it was introduced, in 1970, the trophy was renamed after the late Green Bay Packers coach, Lombardi, who led the Packers to victory in the first two Super Bowls. It was initially designed by Oscar Riedener, a former Vice President at Tiffany & Co., who sketched the basic design on a napkin during a 1966 meeting with then-NFL® commissioner, Pete Rozelle. The design features a regulation-size football in kicking position.
Tiffany & Co. entrusts the design to its most accomplished artisans, who bring the trophy to life over a course of approximately four months (a total of 72 hours of labor). These master craftspeople combine time-honored techniques with cutting-edge innovations, from spinning, silversmithing and chasing to hand engraving and polishing, to craft the seven-pound, 22-inch sterling silver trophy. They handcraft the Vince Lombardi trophy and over 65 other trophies each year at the Tiffany & Co. hollowware workshop in Cumberland, Rhode Island.
