Elvis Presley’s ring to fetch up to £35,000 at auction
A gold lion-head ring with diamond eyes which belonged to Elvis is expected to fetch up to £35,000 at auction.
The ring is stamped 14k gold and is accompanied by an Elvis Presley Museum certificate of authenticity, signed by the star’s friend, Jimmy Velvet.
Elvis is said to have been attracted to the lion symbolically as it is King of the Beasts and regarded as a sign of strength.
A statement with the ring says it was worn by Elvis in 1972 until he dropped it on the floor and one of his Memphis Mafia members accidentally stepped on it.
