“I was bullied” Taylor Swift’s Birthday Ring Has a Special Connection to Her Childhood — and Travis Kelce

Swift has opened up in the past about why opal jewelry is significant to her — and her friend Keleigh Sperry seemed to confirm a fan favorite theory

Every time Taylor Swift steps outside, fans are quick to decode her fit from head-to-toe, breaking down any intricately laid easter eggs she may have cleverly hidden in her look.

There are fans who share near-constant theories on the 12-time Grammy winner’s wardrobe and what it might say about her upcoming music or even her relationship with Kansas City Chief’s tight end Travis Kelce.

One of Swift’s latest looks is her show-stopping, celestial-inspired 34th birthday ensemble — in particular the large ring she flaunts on her right middle finger in many of the photos shared in her Instagram carousel.

In photos taken of Swift walking outside her N.Y.C. party, she’s seen showing what appears to be an opal ring surrounded by a halo of blue gemstones to close friends Miles Teller and his wife Keleigh Sperry.

TikTok user Swiftieinkc broke down the photos in a now-viral video, speculating that the center opal (Kelce’s birthstone) appears to be surrounded by what could be blue topaz, the Sagittarius singer’s birthstone.

In another clip, Swiftieinkc shares that Sperry liked her clip breaking down the ring, a telling move that has given new life to the theory that the bling is in fact a gift from Kelce, 34.

Swift’s connection to opals also runs deep. She has always had an affinity for the stone.

“When I was bullied in school, my mom used to take me to T.J. Maxx after school to look at the opal jewelry,” she told Us Weekly in 2017. “I thought opals were so beautiful, and somehow it made me feel better.”

In September, right around the time she first attended one of Kelce’s games, Swift was seen out wearing an opal pear-shaped pendant.

The design, from celeb-loved jewelry brand Foundrae, is called the Forever & Always a Pair Pendant and retails for $1,150. It even shares a name with Swift’s famous “Fearless” track.

According to Foundrae’s website, the pendant “represents love.”

The product description continues, “Each pair comes at a time in our lives when something just feels right. These pairs of pears, we absorb them, fuse them into our own hearts, and our heart grows as a result.”

Swift sharing that opals “always made her feel better” can be linked to the astrology behind the gemstone. Opals, the astrological gemstone of Venus, are known to be linked to healthier relationships and increased creative potential.

Celebrity astrologer Kyle Thomas recently told PEOPLE that Swift (a Sagittarius Sun with a Cancer Moon) and Kelce (a Libra Sun with a Sagittarius Moon) “possess a karmic entanglement that makes them feel familiar to one another.”

“Factoring in romance and intimacy, intellectual rapport and communication, career and financial support, friendship, domestic union and true long-term synergy,” Thomas told PEOPLE, adding that he feels Swift and Kelce are “a 9 out of 10” when it comes to “their overall compatibility.”
