Description:

Elvis' love for jewelry is well documented and he was as likely to give a piece to an admirer as he was to acquire more on a frequent basis, so it's no surprise that Elvis would store his collection in jewelry boxes in his personal dressing area. This simple yet elegant silver-plated jewelry box is lined with a dark blue velveteen, perfect for keeping masculine jeweled treasures. The jewelry box is described in part in an accompanying letter from Sam Thompson: "During the spring of 1977, while at Graceland, Elvis gave me a ring and then joked about not having a box to put it in. He then went into the private dressing area adjacent to his bathroom and emptied the contents of a small silver jewelry box and then presented me with the box. It was Elvis' personal jewelry box and it has remained in my possession since then." A priceless memento that once housed the king's treasures. The jewelry box measures 5 1/2 by 4 by 1 1/4 inches (13.97 x 10.16 x 3.17 cm) and is offered with a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition Report: The box is slightly tarnished but in overall excellent condition.
