Travis Kelce just showed his support for his brother Jason Kelce, who announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday, with a special piece of jewelry.

The Kansas City Chiefs star joined his parents, Donna and Ed Kelce, and Jason’s wife, Kylie Kelce, for an emotional press conference at the Philadelphia Eagles Training Center, where Jason, 36, shared the news of his departure from the league after 13 seasons.

Photos of Travis, 34, showed him wearing three bracelets, including a friendship bracelet with the name “Kelce” spelled out with letter beads.

The accessory is reminiscent of the colorful styles Travis’ girlfriend, Taylor Swift, and her fans have become synonymous with since the pop star embarked on her Eras Tour last March.

The tight end — who won his third Super Bowl on Feb. 11 and celebrated in Las Vegas with the Grammy winner by his side — attempted to give his own DIY design to the singer before the two officially started dating. 

Travis was most recently seen decked out in fan-made accessories at Swift's concert in Sydney on Feb. 23.

At the press conference, Travis wore a button-up shirt with earth-toned color blocking by Song for the Mute, according to an Instagram fan page dedicated to his outfits. He also sported sunglasses which he removed for a moment as he wiped away his tears.

Jason also cried as he thanked everyone who's supported his football dreams, including Travis, in his speech.

The Philadelphia Eagles center spoke about the relationship with his brother, mentioning their years playing sports together as kids and the joy they both felt when the other was drafted into the NFL. "We have a small family. No cousins, one aunt, one uncle. It was really my brother and I our whole lives," Jason explained. "We did almost everything together — competed, fought, laughed, cried and learned from each other."

He recalled "inventing games" with Travis, and said they "imagined" themselves as "star players" in the NFL one day. "We won countless super bowls in our minds before ever leaving the house," Jason said.

Of Travis's support throughout the years, Jason shared: "It made me stronger, tougher, smarter, and taught me the values of cooperation, loyalty, patience, and understanding."
