Offered is an exquisite diamond necklace with a large nearly 2 carat emerald at its center that was given by Elvis Presley to his fiancee, Ginger Alden. Their whirlwind romance commenced as soon as they met at Graceland in November 1976, and Elvis proposed to Ginger just two months later. The offered necklace was a gift Elvis gave Ginger the month after they met, while he was in Las Vegas performing his final concerts at the Las Vegas Hilton. It is accompanied by its original "T-Bird Jewels" box, a place Elvis bought a great many items over the years in Las Vegas. The necklace itself is much older, dating as early as the 1930s or 1940s, by our estimation and based on the vintage design. It emanates directly from Ginger Alden, and her accompanying letter reads:

This diamond and emerald necklace with original box from Thunderbird jewelers was personally gifted to me by Elvis Presley inside his penthouse suite during what would be his last Las Vegas engagement at the Hilton hotel in December of 1976. Elvis had me wear this necklace to his shows telling my parents whom he'd just flown in, "I want you to see your daughter in her true attire. It's little Ginger's time to shine". Sincerely, Ginger Alden

The pendant that circles the emerald holds 21 round diamonds totalling approx. .94 carats, and the crown above the pendant hold 5 marquise diamonds totalling approx. .44 carats with a centerstone round diamond of .25 carats. The jewelry value of this piece cannot be overstated, with the emerald itself getting an audible "WOW!" from our jeweler when asked to review the piece-he raved about its quality. This is a rare chance to acquire an incredibly special piece that Elvis Presley gave to last woman he loved.
