Elvis loved the sparkle of diamonds and the allure of gold, so most of his gemmed accessories contained them and the offered ring is no exception. It is, however, uniquely designed with a diamond bejeweled guitar atop a 14-karat yellow gold nugget-style ring with Elvis’ initials, one on each shoulder in diamonds. This musical-themed, personalized bauble comes with a letter from Charlie Hodge that states in part, “This yellow 14kt nugget style pave’ diamond shaped guitar ring with Elvis’ initials in diamonds EP on each side of the ring was purchased by Elvis from the Thunderbird jewelers in Las Vegas. It was one of his favorite jewelry stores in Las Vegas. Elvis would always joke with me why my guitar I played on stage was never connected. [sic] to an amplifier. He’d jokingly say, ‘Son you can’t play the guitar worth a damn stick to doing harmony and handing me my scarves and water.’ Elvis had a crazy sense of humor that’s why all of us guys nicknamed him ‘Crazy.’ Many months later after Elvis had worn the ring until he tired of it as he often did with anything one day he jokingly said that he was going to give it to me maybe it would help me play the guitar better! We both laughed so long and so hard until it hurt. I’ve owned this ring Elvis gave me since that time.”

This dazzling beauty incorporates Elvis’ love of both jewelry and music with the added personalization that identifies it as none other than the King’s. The 14-karat yellow gold ring weighs 15 grams and features two diamonds weighing 0.06 carat and measuring 2.5 mm, sixty-four diamonds weighing 0.02 carat and measuring 1.5 mm and measures a size 10. The stunning sparkler is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The ring shows signs of minor wear to the inside of the band, but has no major defects. Near Mint condition.
