Winning a trophy is a feeling like no other. Not only does it pay tribute to something you love to do, but it is a reminder of your hard work and dedication that paid off. Now, even though each trophy is unique, some trophies give a new meaning to the word ”bespoke”. To help inspire you for your own customisable trophy, here is a look at what is considered some of the most beautiful trophies in the world.

For those who are interested in a closer look at the critically acclaimed trophy, the inscription on the cup reads, “The All England Lawn Tennis Club Single Handed Championship of the World”. Those with a keen eye may have also noticed a miniature gold pineapple on the top of the trophy. Although the meaning behind the pineapple remains a mystery to this day, many have argued that pineapples were seen as a delicacy in the 17th century, hence being presented with one was seen as a great compliment.
