Horseshoe Ring

Fri Apr 27, 2007 10:04 pm

Hello friends. I'm looking for a good picture of Elvis' Horseshoe Ring (the 50's ring).

Does anyone have a clearly good picture to help me?

Thanks in advance.

I think this is a later ring, if you have a look in some of

the Werthimer books you can see the ring quite clearly,

the best one I found is a colour shot from the

Hound Dog/Don't Be Cruel session, the main difference

is behind the horses head the gate, or fence, is missing,

I'm not sure but I think the ring you show is from when

he married Prisilla, also I seem to remember reading

somewhere that the original ring somhow broke, but was

repaired & given away. It seems that this was a favorite

design with Elvis & he came back to it several times.

Hope this helps.

You're right Tigerman-GB. This is NOT the 1956 horseshoe ring. I have no clear photos of the ring but there is absolutely no doubt that this is the one from Elvis and Priscilla's wedding.

Sorry, but you're wrong there, it did have a horsehead

on the ring as you might be able to make out in this

Alfred Werthimer picture from the Hound Dog session.

Image

In fact here's how Alfred describes the ring, he was there

when Elvis bought it " Elvis did buy a ring, a diamond

studded horseshoe around a gold horse's head"

If you can lay your hands on any of the four books

that have been put out you should be able to find a halfway

decent picture that includes the ring, hope this helps.

In fact, there were two different horseshoe rings! With and without the head!!

Image

The one I'm looking for is the one without the head.
This one without the head is different then any other I've seen on the net.

It has the ring and over it, there is a very thin horseshoe, and you can see the contour of the ring under it (if you understand me... sorry my english :oops: ).

The ring I found on the net, the ring is a single piece...
