The jewelry collection, which the legendary "King of Rock" Elvis Presley gave to his manager Tom Parker, will be auctioned on August 27, Reuters reported.
According to reports, the auction will include about two hundred items, including watches, gold rings encrusted with jewels, cufflinks, chains, and also the guitar that Presley played during his famous comeback performance in 1968.
Priscilla Presley, the wife of the legendary musician, secured many of the items to be auctioned off, stating that she was forced to take this step by the constant presence of her husband's fake artifacts on the market. “I want to know for sure that these authentic objects will belong to someone who will take care of them, someone who will appreciate them” - said Priscilla.
She told Reuters that this collection of jewelry is extremely interesting and diverse and that it was born from the constant efforts of the Presley couple to figure out what would be the right choice for a gift. Interestingly, the auction will also feature some items designed by Priscilla, including artifacts with the logo for "TCB Band", Presley's backing band.

American actress and entrepreneur Priscilla Presley (75) is best known as the ex-wife of the late "king of rock", Elvis Presley. She often points out in interviews that nobody cannot be compared to him.
“I don't think I'll ever find anyone I'd love like Elvis. It's bad to compare him to anyone at all. It's true that some men I was with after Elvis meant something to me, but he was my first and last love” - she once said in an interview for the media.
Priscilla did not remarry after her divorce from Elvis, but she had a turbulent love life. She was only 14 years old when she met Elvis, while he was 10 years older. She married him in 1967, and a year later they had a daughter, Lisa Marie. They divorced in 1973.
Many blame her for overdoing the plastic surgery. At the age of 77, she doesn't have a single wrinkle, and her face is completely toned, which greatly amazed her fans. Namely, over the years, Priscilla was a victim of plastic surgeon Serrano from Argentina, who injected his patients with industrial silicone used to lubricate car parts instead of Botox. She claims that she gave up plastic surgery then, and it's amazing how she looked in her youth, she was a real beauty.
