Anyone have close up photos of the rings from Aloha Special?

Sun Oct 10, 2010 3:43 am

It's hard to make out which rings he's got on in Aloha From Hawaii, and it'd just be nice to see close up photos of the rings. Anyone have shots?

Thanks Terry. Elvis really liked horseshoe rings. Did he make any comments anywhere on why he regularly wore them?

From 1974 concert
:Here Elvis talks about his suit and his diamond rings
- "You helped pay for them"!! - all in a friendly tease with the audience and he honestly explains that he loves being on stage as it's "My life blood and I love it".

That's the ring I'm aware of. What I am really hoping for is photos of the rings he had on his other hand.

Thanks though.

Here's the thread of Elvis Rings
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=56344&start=0&hilit=Elvis+Rings

However, it doesn't specify if any of those rings were the ones he wore during Aloha From Hawaii. (besides the horseshoe one) Were they?

The one on his pointer finger looks like it has a jewel in it. So my GUESS is that it might be the sapphire ring, but I'm not sure at all.

There's gotta be someone on this site that knows this stuff.

^^ Is this last ring pictured the ShopElvis Aloha ring?

If I knew the gold wouldn't wear off, I'd buy it just to
get some attention. Wonder if it would be the good
kind of attention? Serious bling.

Man, that horseshoe ring sure does look like the inspiration for the later famous TCB ring with that HUGE diamond in the middle on top of all that gold!

Sometimes I wonder if they used the same center stone for both.
Just like everything else Elvis, even the rings have some tall tales.

Here's another shot of the rings on his right hand: http://www.cosmofineart.com/HG_Elvis_Color_AlohaViaSat.jpg

My question - is that an ID bracelet or a watch or something else on his right wrist?

That's just simply a gold bracelet on his right wrist - nothing more.

Also, if anyone is interested in purchasing any rings like these (or something similar) you can go to Artie Dadyan's website:

Design By Artie



I have the huge horseshoe diamond ring that Elvis wore on his left hand in AFH that I bought from Artie. He makes very, very, very good products.

OK, one more, while we're cataloging the AFH jewelry - what about the necklace?

I can't find a good picture of it but you can see it on the DVD (or YouTube) very clearly early during My Way:

The necklace is gold and simply says "ELVIS"

Tony thanks for the link. I'd never heard of Artie. I'm guessing you're very pleased with the horseshoe ring?
Did you go with silver or gold? I'm interested in the silver, so if that's what you got did it have the sterling
silver stamp inside the ring? Thanks.

If I can say this here, Artie used to work with the late Dennis Roberts (Elvis's optician) then went out on his own.

I am very, very, very pleased with the horseshoe ring. I wear it every time I play a gig and people always ask me where I got it.

I wound up getting the gold horseshoe ring because, just like Elvis, that's what he had on in the AFH show but my ring is MUCH smaller because of my hand size.

i don't think that's the one. It looks like something he would wear in 1970.

However, if you go to b-k enterprises' website you can see a lot of jewelry. Many of the rings looks like the ones Elvis wore, and some not.
I've heard somewhere that he wore a pear shaped horseshoe ring also. But i'm not sure.

here's the link to b-k:

Hi folks,

Regarding the very large horseshoe ring on his left hand, the centre stone was 11.5 carat, the same size as the tcb ring main diamond. The ring shank was platinum and gold.

I wrote to Graceland regarding this ring around 20 years ago and got a nice reply. I still have the letter lol.

I asked if they had that ring. They don't, Elvis gave it away :-O

It's my favourite of his rings :-)
