Elvis’ love for jewelry is widely documented in images depicting him with a plethora on his fingers and around his neck. Elvis always had an affinity for gold and diamonds and in the 1970s with his return to live performances, he took this passion up a notch, making a splash with his famous studded and bejeweled jumpsuits and the shimmering array of jewelry with which he would adorn himself. He would often wear multiple rings and was as generous giving them away as he was aggressive in purchasing. Offered is a 14-karat gold men’s ring with triangular-cut shoulders surrounding single diamonds weighing 0.07 carat each and large center diamond set in a squared silvered mount. The large center stone weighs 1 carat and the ring, size 9 3/4, weighs 14 grams. The ring comes with a handwritten, signed letter from Patsy Presley Geranen on “E.A.P” embossed stationery that states, “This gentlemen’s 14 karat gold and diamond ring was one that belonged to Elvis.” Being a close family member (double first cousin) and working with Elvis as his secretary at Graceland, Patsy was often the recipient of Elvis’ generosity. The style of this handsome ring is typical of that preferred by Elvis and when he discovered a style he liked, he would often purchase in multiples or buy the style again because he so often gifted his jewelry. As a shining star himself, Elvis was a fan of diamonds, and this ring certainly has the dazzle fit for a King. The ring is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The ring present with very little wear. Near Mint condition.
