Yes, that time frame seems correct. The overcast weather is about right for Beverly Hills in late fall, too.

As for the necklace, Elvis started wearing it in January 1965. It's one of his most treasured items, the "Tree of Life" medallion, a 30th birthday present from the guys in the "Memphis Mafia."

Designed by Marty Lacker, it had each of the current "Memphis Mafia" crew engraved on it, with Elvis's name in the center. There was one snag -- when Elvis noticed that Larry Geller had been omitted, he refused to wear it until the oversight was rectified. It was, and he did. If you look at photos between 1965 and 1970, you'll see it quite a bit. After that, who knows what happened?
