I think this is very interesting and wonderful for a fan/collector to be able to get this kind of an item that is tied to elvis and one of his loves. I recovered the JEWELRY that belonged to elvis and was stolen from the museum here in las vegas. I had the priviledge of putting all the jewelry on and being able to take pictures of it. It was a great feeling and i was very proud to be able to do that and also return it to the propers owner so all of ELVIS"S fans could still enjoy seeing the items.

the auction page says: Elvis Presley Fire Opal & Diamond Ring Given To Ginger Alden (Great Provenance) Lot # 960
This size 7-1/4 ring is cast in 10K yellow gold was given by Elvis to his fiancee Ginger Alden in 1976. Meant to be worn on the pinky, it is both flashy to the eye and subtly nuanced upon closer inspection. It features a crown, literally, as the centerpiece is crafted in the shape of kingly headwear, fashioned with 16 glittering diamond stones arrayed around a 1/2" precious Australian fire opal. Opal has one of the best spectral displays of any gemstone; made up of layers of precipitated silica spheres in a jelly-like water mass, the ordering of the spheres sometimes produce a diffraction grating that creates a play of rainbow sparkling light from within the stone, thus the "fire." The centerpiece "crown" is snugly coddled into a U-shaped design with intricate gold grilling on each side, while the two shanks are crafted into a checkerboard pattern. The ring is in superb condition, smooth and pristine surface, vibrant and deep colors, simply MINT. Not just an Elvis ring but an absolutely unique Elvis love token for the woman who would have been Mrs. Presley. Accompanied by a LOA from Ginger Alden, valued at $20,000 intrinsically, let alone its Kingly origin.
