Dee Gordon had a three-hit day in the Marlins 2015 season finale to secure the NL batting title over Bryce Harper, not only getting his name in the record books, but also earning himself an awesomely gaudy piece of jewelry.

The pavé pendant features the team logo, Gordon’s final batting average of .333 and a list of Gordon’s 2015 accomplishments, including his All-Star appearance and Sliver Slugger award.

When owner Jeffery Loria presented the second baseman with the piece, Gordon’s jaw hit the floor.

The batting title pendant is becoming a Marlins tradition, as Hanley Ramirez was awarded a similar piece when he led the league in hitting in 2009, with the team also passing out replicas to fans.
