Offered is a gold colored ring with a large, flat onyx stone centerpiece flanked by several CZ stones on each side that was owned by Elvis Presley. The ring is understated and elegant, but still has a heavier pattern to the shanks that often caught Elvis' eye when buying jewelry. The ring was eventually gifted to Elvis' cousin Patsy Presley, to whom he gave a great many things during the many years she worked in the offices at Graceland. The ring is accompanied by a letter from noted collector Tom Salva detailing his acquisition of the ring among other items he purchased from Patsy. The letter states,

The item listed and shown above has been in my personal Elvis Presley collection since 1988. I purchased this item, and many others, from Patsy Presley, Elvis Presley’s cousin who worked as secretary in the offices at Graceland for many years during Elvis’ career. The item was originally from a jewelry box from Elvis’ bedroom dresser. I purchased the jewelry box and all its contents from Patsy in 1988. While it didn’t contain any of Elvis’ ornate jewelry with diamonds and gold, etc., it did contain many rings, watches, money clips, cuff links, bracelets, pins and other items of this sort that were often gifted to Elvis by family, friends and even fans. Included below is a copy of the money order with which I purchased the items from Patsy Gambill (her married name at the time) as well as a color copy of the handwritten letter from Patsy, dated October 25, 1988, describing the jewelry box and what it meant to Elvis.

The size 9 ring is centered by an onyx stone that measures 3/8 x 1/2 inches. Also accompanying is a color copy of the original letter from Patsy Presley Gambill, as referenced in Tom's letter. The size 9 ring shows signs of moderate use. Near Mint condition.
