    Elvis Presley Owned and Worn Hawk's Eye Quartz 14k Gold Ring (1973). Sam Thompson was introduced to Elvis in 1973 by his sister, Linda Thompson, Elvis' main squeeze during most of the 1970s. In Sam's own words, "In 1973 I became a part of the 'Memphis Mafia', the inner circle of friends who frequently traveled with Elvis on road tours." It was a group with unique benefits. Elvis loved jewelry, but he may have loved giving it away even more. After Sam admired this ring, which Elvis wore on his ring finger, Elvis gave it to him, saying he had gotten it in Hawaii during the time he performed the Aloha special. The 14k gold ring with the hawk's eye quartz stone weighs 6.6 grams, the stone measuring 11 x 9.5 mm, size 9 1/4 and sizable. LOA from Sam Thompson.
