Description:

Lapis lazuli is a semi-precious stone that has been prized since ancient times for its celestial blue color. Since lapis lazuli is a symbol of royalty, no stone is more fitting to adorn the finger of the King than the offered 18-karat yellow gold ring with deep blue, oblong lapis lazuli stone surrounded by an open channel design with 24 diamonds measuring 22 mm each and weighing a total of 0.48 carat. The lapis lazuli stone measures 24 x 12 mm and the ring weighs 14.2 grams and is size 10 3/4. The interior of this mesmerizing ring is marked 18k and "Italy" and comes with a letter from Charlie Hodge which states in part, "This oblong shaped lapis gold ring with diamonds surrounding the blue lapis was a ring that Elvis wore quite often in the middle 1970's. I [sic] was one of his favorite rings as he always like [sic] lapis." The stone's association with strength, power, and honor makes it the perfect accessory for a star of Elvis' caliber and he certainly wore it well.  This striking ring is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Please Note: The photo originally presented with this lot does not show Elvis wearing this ring.

Condition Report: The ring shows only minor signs of wear. Near Mint condition.
