The King's Bling - Elvis Presley's Jewellery

Elvis Presley was a Master of Style - he created the modern image of a rock star and a part of that was the flashy, bold jewellery that he was famous for. Bling - forty years before anyone had heard the term, and what Elvis did, he did to the full. His generosity was legendary - even stopping a concert to hand out a box-full of solid gold jewellery to an astonished audience. Many pieces of his are on show at Graceland, many more have surfaced on auction as their owners passed away or decided to cash in on the growing value of any item associated with the King of Rock n' Roll. Here we take a look at some of the many wonderful pieces of jewellery owned by Elvis Presley.





 BELOW: An eye-watering selection of some of the many rings owned by Elvis.
