Offered is an impressive eagle-themed Sterling silver bracelet owned by Elvis Presley. Elvis' love of the eagle image, rooted in his deep patriotism and even deeper ability to wear kick-ass clothing and jewelry, is well-known. This rather heavy, solid Sterling silver number would have fit in perfectly with his style. In one scene in the 1972 film Elvis on Tour, Elvis is boarding a plane and can be seen wearing a necklace of a very similar style and shape as the offered bracelet--it's not a conclusive image, but certainly compelling (see image at left). The bracelet 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 bracelet is accompanied by a letter from noted collector Tom Salva detailing his acquisition of the bracelet 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.

Also accompanying is a color copy of the original letter from Patsy Presley Gambill, as referenced in Tom's letter. The bracelet measures 8 inches in length and weighs in at 27.5 grams. The Sterling silver designation "925" is stamped into the back of the eagle  and the clasp. Moderate to heavy use. Excellent condition.
