With the upcoming Superbowl season, it wouldn’t have been better time to launch something as blinged as this: Swarovski studded football helmets, by Quinn Gregory of Chicago. With previous displaying of blinged art like the White opal Swarovski skull, these special edition football helmets don’t come as a surprise, and needless to say well timed. With as many as 12,500 pieces of Swarovski crystals, many of which are colored as per the 3 major team colors, this special edition series is one flashy way to show your alliance for your favorite NFL team.
Made with the configurations of the professional Riddell Proline Football helmets, each of these ‘brain buckets’ as they referred to, has taken 3 weeks to develop. Over this period, each cast of the helmets were selected according to size, crystals with the exact matching colors were carefully chosen and individually set around the surface. As the owner of Dallas Cowboy, Mr. Jerry Jones would testify, it is a true collector’s item, and will have his helmet sold off after the end of the season, at a special auction event. By the looks to of it, there is nothing to prevent a pretty high bidding price, after the large congregation that would accumulate there.
The current set of helmets prepared by the artist includes samples for the Dallas Cowboys (silver), Cincinnati Bengals (tangerine), and also the Kansas City (red). But order for other leagues and colleges can also be ordered for. The cost for that would be around the $1,800, and depending on configuration, should take around 3 weeks to deliver after final order.
