Elvis’ love for jewelry is widely documented in images from the 1970s when he would wear a plethora on his fingers and around his neck. The brilliant gemstone diamond was not just a girl’s best friend but favored by the king of rock ‘n’ roll as well. The offered 18-karat yellow gold men’s ring weighs approximately 13.5 grams and contains 24 princess-cut diamonds in three rows across the face with a lightly raised gold frame surround. The square-cut diamonds weigh approximately 1.65 total carats. The ring, measuring a size 8, was gifted to Dave Hebler by Elvis, the receipt of which is mentioned in the accompanying handwritten letter from Dave Hebler in which he states, “My name is Dave Hebler and for a number of years I was Elvis Presley’s personal Bodyguard. Over the years Elvis gave me many pieces of jewelry. One of these pieces was a gold ring encrusted with diamonds across the top in a rectangular shape.” It was common for Elvis to give his jewelry to his friends and family at the slightest admiration of a piece and since Dave was not only his bodyguard, but a friend, it’s natural that Elvis would gift him such a magnificent piece of jewelry. The ring is also accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The ring presents with minor wear in the way of very small scuffs and a couple of minor scratches. Excellent to Mint condition.
