    Elvis Presley Owned and Worn Star Ruby and Diamond Ring. Unusual, gorgeous ring, understated compared to most of Elvis' jewelry. The 10K yellow gold band is crowned by a star ruby, accented on either side by small diamonds. In December, 1976, while a guest of Sam Thompson (the brother of Elvis' girlfriend Linda) Elvis took the ring from his own middle finger and gave the ring to Sam as a bonus following a ten-day engagement at the Las Vegas Hilton. According to Thompson, Elvis claimed to have gotten the ring when he visited a spiritual center in Los Angeles which had been founded by Hindu holy man Paramahansa Yogananda. LOA from Sam Thompson.
