DescriptionElvis Presley's Personalized Silver and Diamond Ring. A fantastic piece of jewelry from the King's personal collection, this large 14 karat white gold ring features Elvis' name decorated with diamond and ruby settings.
The ring was personally given to consignor Novalene Lewis by Elvis in 1975, whom Novalene met through family friend J.D. Sumner, leader of Elvis' backing vocalists The Stamps. After one of Elvis' legendary shows at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, Novalene and her sister and mother were invited to Elvis' penthouse suite. As she tells it: "Later that evening J.D. told me that Elvis would like to see me in his living room. After talking with him for some time we became instant friends, laughing at the fact that we both had very odd names. I found him amazingly easy to talk to. He told me he would like to give me something and he went into another part of the room and came back out with his ring. He put the ring on a necklace and put the necklace around my neck for me to wear."
Elvis was widely known to be generous with his belongings, and often gave away personal possessions to friends, family, employees, and lucky fans alike. This particular item is unique among Presleyana, a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry from the iconic singer's personal collection. The ring features single-cut diamonds weighing a total of approximately 0.65 carat, enhanced by round-shaped rubies weighing a total of approximately 0.40 carat, set in 14k white gold. Gross weight 24.00 grams.
