Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift are paying a dazzling homage to their memorable meeting. The 34-year-old NFL player purchased a handmade $6,000 diamond friendship bracelet for the Grammy winner and a little bigger one for himself. The couples’ four-carat diamond bracelets spell out.
“TNT,” an abbreviated form of “Taylor and Travis,” according to Kendall Junck of Wove, the Philadelphia-based jeweler who created the unique pieces. “As much as we would like to take credit for the TNT nickname, that was all Travis,” Kendall revealed in a TikTok video posted on Monday, January 29.
The bracelets are part of a partnership between the jeweler and professional golfer Michelle Wie West. Wove described the collection as being intended for those who are “authentically and passionately pursuing their dreams.” “We’re all very delighted for Taylor and Travis. Kendall gushed in the TikTok video, “This love story is our Roman Empire, and we are just beyond honored to be a small part of it.”
Taylor was seen wearing her bracelet at the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Baltimore Ravens AFC Championship game on January 28. The Chiefs won and advanced to Super Bowl LVIII. Taylor approached Travis on the field following his great triumph, kissing his cheek and saying, “Oh my god, I’ve never seen anything like that in my life.” Fans believe they spotted the pair sharing their first public “I love yous” in separate post-game video.
The identical bracelets represent a full circle moment for the couple, since Travis originally attempted to connect with Taylor by gifting her a friendship bracelet with his phone number at her July 2023 Eras tour stop at Arrowhead Stadium. Despite not being able to exchange bracelets with the Grammy winner after the concert, the couple were engaged in September 2023.
Taylor has now attended 12 Chiefs games in support of her boyfriend, with supporters hoping that her appearance at the February 11 Super Bowl would be fortunate number 13. Taylor clarified the history of her and Travis’ relationship during her Time Person of the Year cover story interview in December 2023, saying, “This all started when Travis very adorably put me on blast on his podcast, which I thought was metal as hell.” Taylor stated that they began spending time together secretly “right after that.”
“So we actually had a significant amount of time that no one knew, which I’m grateful for, because we got to get to know each other,” she told the news organization at the time. “When I went to that first game, we were already a relationship. I suspect some people believe they saw our first date at that game. We’d never be insane enough to force a first date.”
