Diamond-Studded Ring Auctioned On e-Bay

From the press release for the auction of a diamond ring Elvis wore on his wedding day which will be auctioned. "On August 16, 1977 we lost Elvis Presley but his memory and spirit thrives. To mark this occasion you could own a specially-designed ring worn by Elvis Presley at his 1967 wedding to Priscilla. The 14-carat white gold ring with over 2-carats of diamonds is being auctioned on e-Bay by "Auction Boulevard". The owner of the ring wishes to remain anonymous. The ring was given to the owner by Presley in 1968. According to a 1997 Wall Street Journal article, the owner was on a flight from Honolulu "when Mr. Presley stepped through the curtain from first class section to hear some eager young singers." One of the singers noticed the ring on Presley's hand and said, "Man, I dig that ring! 'He nearly fainted when Mr. Presley gave it to the (owner).'" The ring is in the shape of a horseshoe with 10 diamonds forming it. Within the horseshoe is the letter "G," which honors Presley's mom, Gladys, and his 155-acre Circle G Ranch near Memphis. The opening bid for the ring is $60,000.
