Damar Hamlin added a little ice to his collection earlier in the week, linking up with famed NYC-based jeweler Gabriel Jacobs at his boutique shop in Manhattan.
The Bills safety was gifted with, among other things, a glistening white gold chain. Attached to the end of it is a sparkling No. 3 pendant, packed with three diamond carats. The border of the pendant features a solitary red heart — Hamlin’s signature gesture.

“I felt like I really needed to do something,” Jacobs told WKBW. “I have a lot of clients on the team and that’s the way I can give, on my side.”
It seems he saved the best for last with Hamlin, plastering the white gold surface with just the right amount of gemstones. Hamlin looked more than pleased with his selection.
“It doesn’t cost anything to show love,” Jacobs said.
