Elvis Presley’s Passion for Jewellery.
The most memorable, exciting personality in American music was born
January 8, 1935 in a two-room plank shack in East Tupelo,
Mississippi, on the wrong side of the rail road tracks.
He won his first prize for singing at the age of 10, and by 19, he had
made his first record and become a worldwide sensation as a rock
and roll singer.
Extraordinary entertainer, enigmatic myth, Elvis Presley lives on as
legend nearly three decades after his death at the age of 42 on
August 16, 1977. Today, in 2009, he is more popular than ever,
thousands of fans still flock yearly to his Graceland Mansion
and sales of his albums top one billion.
Elvis became a spiritual man who not only loved beautiful things;
he had a strong appreciation of natural beauty and loved nature and animals.
The man who loved all that glitters was gone too soon, but the jewellery
he took great pride in designing himself, and wearing onstage and
off, resides in museums and in private collections of friends.
