The Weeknd has been given a custom diamond Super Bowl ring to commemorate his half-time performance at this year’s event.
The Toronto star worked around coronavirus regulations to put on an impressive show during the NFL game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs, held at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium earlier this month (February 7).
Accoridng to TMZ, the ‘Blinding Lights’ singer has now received a new piece of jewellery to commemorate the moment, courtesy of Cash – the co-founder of The Weeknd’s record label XO.
The customised piece isn’t an official championship ring like the ones Tom Brady and his Tampa Bay Buccaneer teammates will receive for winning the Super Bowl, instead The Weeknd’s is an original piece created by celebrity jewellery designer, Elliot Eliantte.
