A large sterling silver ring with modernist turquoise and opalescent stones, owned and worn by Elvis. He wore many such rings and other jewelry during the '70s, often giving them away to fans at concerts. This particular ring was recently sold at the Dick Clark Auction in December 2006, and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
One of the most beautiful personal effect of Elvis offered in auction! This stunning opal ring was one of Elvis' favorites, sold to him by famed Memphis jeweler Lowell Hays in the 1970s. The impressive opal is approximately 24 x 20 mm and is surrounded by 34 full cut diamonds with a total weight of 1.45 carats. The ring is 14k gold, with the top an antique broach that's been soldered to the shank. Included is a five-page appraisal dated January 2, 1997, from the Chicago Gem Lab, Inc., impeccable provenance from Lowell Hays, and a statement from Elvis' aunt, Delta Mae Biggs. No reserves on this item means your opening bid could be the winning bid! COA from the Elvis Presley Museum.
Too much superstitious people at the auctions maybe?? This beautiful ring not selling might have something to do with the myth that an Opal will bring the wearer bad luck unless they are born in the month of October.
I wonder if Elvis knew about this superstition?
