Diamonds are supposed to be forever, but for a certain member of the Kansas City Chiefs 2019 Super Bowl team, the diamonds lasted about a month.
Mike Weber, a member of the Chiefs practice squad from their championship season, has reportedly put his Super Bowl ring up for auction only one month after receiving it. The rings were distributed to the Chiefs during a special, socially-distanced ceremony at Arrowhead Stadium on September 1.

The ring is being sold at Goldin Auctions. The opening bid for the ring came in at $35,000, TMZ reports. Recently, the ring’s asking price has gotten as high as $55,000.
As TMZ Sports reports:
Weber, who is currently out of the league, was a 7th-round 2019 draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys. He was a late season add to the Chiefs practice squad during their championship run. The fact that Weber is out of the league, probably has a lot to do with the decision to auction the ring.
