The real person behind Taylor Swift’s enormous opal birthday ring, revealed — and it’s not Travis Kelce

Keleigh Sperry set the record straight about Taylor Swift’s opal and blue topaz ring and admitted that she purchased the sparkler, not Travis Kelce.
It’s nice to have a friend like Keleigh Sperry.

Taylor Swift celebrated her 34th birthday last week to much fanfare, hosting an A-list party at Zero Bond in NYC with close friends including Gigi Hadid, Blake Lively, Zoë Kravitz and more.

While the pop star sparkled from head to toe in a black sequined constellation minidress and diamond jewelry, it was a new — and enormous — opal and blue-stoned ring that got fans talking; could boyfriend Travis Kelce be behind the gorgeous gift?

Sperry put rumors to rest on Thursday when she revealed via Instagram Story that she is the one behind the very symbolic and sentimental design, not the Chiefs player.

“Love this ring I had made for my friend, she’s bejeweled,” Miles Teller’s wife captioned an up-close photo of the accessory in a red box, slamming “media outlets” and gossip Instagram page DeuxMoi for speculation about Kelce’s gift.


Sperry flashed a close-up look at her present on Instagram.

Taylor modeled the ring on her pointer finger in a video posted to Sperry’s story, thanking her for the gift.

The sentimental design features a combination of Kelce and Swift’s respective birthstones.

She also shared a video of Swift modeling the design, writing, “Love you T.”

“This is unreal, Keleigh. Opal and blue topaz. Wow … This is like a present for Elizabeth Taylor, not me,” Swift can be heard saying in the video that shows Sperry smiling next to her friend.

While Sperry may be behind the design, it still likely represents the relationship between the NFL player and the singer as a combination of their two birthstones, with opal representing October for Kelce and blue topaz one of three blue stones for December babies, including Swift.

Swift walked hand-in-hand with Sperry and her husband, Miles Teller, while celebrating her 34th birthday.

Swift told Sperry in a new video that the pear-shaped ring was more fitting of Elizabeth Taylor, thanks to it’s massive size.

The pop star showed off her gift at her star-studded party.

Gem experts told Page Six Style that the highly sentimental stones could be worth up to $175,000.

Though Sperry may have harsh words for media outlets who assumed Kelce was behind the whopper gift, she originally fueled fan theories about its origins, liking a Tiktok video that alluded to Travis having designed and purchased the custom ring.

Swift — who quietly started dating the pro athlete over the summer — dropped a hint at their relationship when she wore an opal necklace on an NYC night out in mid-September.
